Skin Care Tips for When the Temperature Drops
Be sure to give your skin some TLC when travelling to cold-weather locales.
When your next vacation is set for colder climes, escaping the heat may be what you're most excited about. Oftentimes, though, the chilly weather can leave your skin dry and dull. Before you jet off, be sure to pack with you the essentials for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated.
Choose a gentle cleanser to avoid drying out your skin since dehydrated skin often leads to the production of more oil, which could in turn lead to acne. We recommend La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel. Turn to this facial cleanser that gently dissolves dirt and oil while still maintaining the skin's natural pH balance.
While it is tempting to scrub away the day's dirt and grime, exfoliate less frequently. Sloughing off the barrier layer of your skin allows more evaporation, which again results to dryness that the weather may exacerbate. If you must exfoliate, opt for a gentle toner like Banila Co's Dear Hydration Toner. It wipes away impurities left behind by your cleanser while nourishing and moisturizing your skin.
For colder climates, a great way to pack in your skin's moisture is by layering your usual moisturizing cream with light facial oils that absorb well into your skin. We love the Marula Beauty Marula Facial Oil, which keeps the skin noticeably more hydrated and plump without leaving any sticky or greasy residue.
