In the often cold and harsh winter months, skin needs additional protection to stay balanced and healthy. When temperatures start to drop, the body tries to hold in heat by narrowing the blood vessels, causing the outer layers of the skin to become dry and dull. Low humidity levels in the air outdoors and indoors, further steal moisture away throughout the day, as do hot showers and baths. Less sunlight can also strip the skin of nutrients (including vitamin D), leading to a lackluster and uneven complexion.
Since the skin is the body’s first line of defense against the elements, it’s important to find the perfect winter skin care routine to suit its needs. This includes gentle formulas that won’t strip away the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Hydrating, soap free cleansers and gentle exfoliators as well as moisturizers should be part of the daily routine.
Dry skin can develop on any part of the body, but it is especially common on parts that are constantly exposed to the weather, namely the face and the hands. Visit our Shop to order your 5 DrK dermal Health Care serums and Exfo Cleanser for an effective winter skin care routine!
