Skin care expert and founder of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, Dr Ross Perry, provided advice on skin care during the winter for The Lady.
He told readers:
“Unfortunately the combination of colder weather and central heating can play havoc with our skin.
“Conditions such as psoriasis and eczema tend to worsen in winter. Our skin can also appear dry and dull looking.
“It’s important to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water or hot water and lemon as central heating and colder weather will dry your skin out.”
Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising in Winter
Dr Perry said:
“Moisturise frequently in winter and choose a thicker cream to help protect against the elements.
“I’d also advise using an exfoliator a couple of times a week to get rid of dead skin cells and unclog pores which can make our skin appear dull and lackluster.
“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 further dry your skin out.”
Sun Protection in Winter?
“It’s super important to use an SPF even in winter as our skin is still susceptible to damaging UV rays despite it being darker and cooler.
“The sun’s harmful UV rays can permeate clouds and still cause damage. I’d advise using an SPF of 15 or higher to exposed face under make-up.”
