YOUR GUIDE TO KEEP YOU GROOMED THROUGH THE WINTER SEASON
The month of December is all about how to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.
There’s a simple reason why your face ends up feeling dry and tight in the winter:
“Quite simple, your skin doesn’t like the cold because it makes keratin stiff and less flexible,”
says Dr. John Gray, author of The World of Skincare. Which explains why keeping it hydrated is so important.
Not everyone will need to increase moisture in the winter. If you do notice your skin is becoming particularly dry and flaky, switch to an intensive balm for dry skin or up how many times you moisturize during the day.
To ensure skin never begins to feel dry and tight for a true 24-hour solution, try Dermalogica's intensive moisture balance.
And don’t just think because it’s winter that you don’t need to use a sunscreen either. While your skin might not burn in December, it’s still prone to the sun’s aging UVA rays at this time of year. To keep the crow’s feet at bay, use a moisturizer containing a sunscreen like our Dermalogica’s Daily Defense SPF15.
If you’re worried about a pale winter complexion, now’s the time to apply a little Tom Ford Bronzing Gel, which gives skin some instant but subtle color.
