1. Defeat dull, dehydrated skin
In the dead of winter, dry patches can build up on your skin’s surface, leaving you less than radiant no matter how much makeup you apply. Get your glow back by using a gentle exfoliant once a week, then follow that up with a layer of moisturizer while your skin is still damp, suggests Woman’s Day. And be sure to hydrate from within by drinking lots of water.
2. Cleanse carefully
If your face feels taut and parched when the weather turns cold, switch up your cleansing routine. Instead of using a foaming, gel-based cleanser, use milky or creamy cleansers since they have fewer skin-stripping detergents, recommends Woman’s Day. Massage into dry skin, then remove gently with a facial tissue or cotton pads. If that doesn’t help, consider using a humidifier to combat dryness in the air.
3. Moisturize while you beautify
A heavy layer of foundation can smudge in the snow and accentuate dry patches. Lighten it up by mixing equal parts moisturizer and foundation before applying, or use a tinted moisturizer instead, Good Housekeeping recommends.
4. Don’t skip sunscreen
Skin-ravaging UV rays are present year-round. Add in the sun-reflecting properties of snow (and outdoor activities like skiing) and it’s clear that your summer SPF routine is just as important in the winter. Get in the habit of wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, no matter what the season.
5. Prevent windburn
On the most blustery days, create a barrier between your face and the wind by applying a richer, extra-moisturizing emollient or salve, notes Real Simple. For more protection, put up your parka’s hood, or wear a hat and a scarf that you can bundle up around your neck and nose.
6. Reduce redness
If the icy cold or wind has left you with an inflamed, red face, camouflage it with a green-tinted moisturizer, says Good Housekeeping. If the redness is confined to smaller areas, just apply a color-correcting concealer to those spots.Look for moisturizers with calming ingredients and treat truly painful areas with a 1% hydrocortisone cream.
