Byrdie: Keep Your Skin From Freaking Out During Winter

25 Nov 2019 | Category: Cosmetic

Healthy Winter Skin

Beauty website Byrdie looks at the challenges that winter can pose to your skin, asking dermatologists and skin experts for their tips and advice on what we can do to keep the skin in good condition and avoid problems during the harsher climate.  

The article is entitled:

“How to Keep Your Skin From Freaking Out During Winter, According to Dermatologists”

The feature explains:

“…it is possible to keep your complexion plump, happy and luminous throughout the winter months – you just need the expert know-how. Thus, we called on a host of skincare experts to reveal the tried-and-true skin tips that will keep your complexion looking its glowing best all winter long.”

The first expert to share advice on the matter is Cosmedics Skin Clinics founder, Dr Ross Perry, who started with advice on the importance of choosing the right sort of product for cleansing the skin.

Dr Perry said:

“Switch to a gentle fragrance-free cleanser, as strong soap can worsen itchy, dry skin.

I’d advise choosing a cream-based cleanser, and use toners and astringents sparingly as quite often these contain alcohol, which can further dry your skin out.”

He then went on to explain the importance of protecting the skin on the hands:

“Hands tend to get forgotten in winter and yet can highlight signs of aging when they’re not looked after and appear dry, lined and cracked

“Wear gloves if you’re cleaning or washing up to protect your hands. Frequent washing of hands in winter will also help keep cold and flu germs away, so always use a hand moisturizer afterwards.”
