Why Your Skin Is Worse In The Winter

While most of us try our hardest to bundle up and protect ourselves from the cold winter air, we must also remember that the wintertime can have damaging effects on our skin and health. During the winter months, our skin is drained of its moisture, which is vital to our skin’s health. The summer glow we worked so hard to get quickly turns into a dull appearance, while the lack of hydration can also cause dryer skin and more wrinkles.

So, why might your skin be worse in the winter than it was in the summer? And what can you do to help fix these issue?

1. You are using the same cleanser on your skin that you used during the summer

While it is necessary to switch from a regular moisturizer in the summer to one that is ultra-hydrating in the winter, the same goes for your cleanser. Winter is a good time to switch to a gentle cleanser that won’t strip away your skin’s moisture. Finding a cleanser that hydrates while it cleanses is the best option for your daily regimen in the winter season.

2. You are taking long, hot showers

While taking a long, hot shower after being out in the frigid air sounds appealing, it is better to keep your showers shorter in the winter. The water does not moisturize your skin. It actually strips your skin of its natural oils. 

3. You are not moisturizing enough

Hydrating your skin often and regularly during the winter months will help fight against aging. It is especially important to apply right when you first come out of the shower or bath. Moisturizer spreads easily on damp skin and it will help replenish the moisture lost during your shower.

Try: H&H Science Enriched Super Rich Moisturizer

4. You are not applying sunscreen

You have heard numerous times that it is important to wear your sunscreen year-round…but are you? Even when it is a blizzard outside, you still run the risk of sun damage on your skin. UV rays are still present on the coldest and cloudiest days of the year. Finding a sunscreen that protects and moisturizes your skin makes the perfect combination for the dry, winter months. 

Try: H&H Science Tinted Brightening BB Cream SPF 50+

5. You are not exfoliating

The only way to get rid of dead cells is to make sure you are providing your skin with a deep cleanse. Dead skin cells can build up on the skin’s surface, providing a dull appearance. Exfoliating 2-3 times a week will help remove dry, dead skin cells, excess oils and residue to reveal healthier and younger looking skin.

Winter Survival Guide: How To Fight Wrinkles

With lower humidity, higher winds and colder temperatures, winter weather is not our friend, especially to our skin. It often leads to dryness and roughness, in addition to making our skin more susceptible to damage. During exposure to extreme temperatures, your skin loses water, ultimately making it dry, flaky and wrinkled. Although winter weather is inevitable, there are ways to help protect your skin from it’s damaging effects and to help keep your skin healthy and radiant. 

1. Apply Sunscreen

Many believe that you only need to UV protection in the summer, when the temperatures are high and your exposure to UVA/UVB rays increases. Although during the winter, the strength of the sun’s UVB rays slightly decrease, the UVA rays remain constant throughout the seasons. Snow can also reflect up to 80% of the sun’s rays, making a broad-spectrum sunscreen just as essential in the winter, as it is in the summer. Applying sunscreen should be the final step in your morning skin care regimen!

2. Moisturize, Hydrate, Repeat

As stated in last week’s blog, Hydration vs. Moisturizing, moisturizers and hydrators both tackle the importance of making sure our skin is getting the proper amount of moisture, in order to prevent environmental damage, signs of aging, and of course, dryness. It is important to use both in order to maintain healthy skin, especially in the dryer air. Choosing a moisturizer or hydrator that addresses our specific skin type and sensitivity level is important, in order to give our skin exactly what it needs. 

3. Check Your Products’ Ingredients

Some skin care products contain harmful ingredients, such as added colors, synthetic fragrances and other irritants that can dry out your skin. It is important to read the label on your products, in order to make sure you are using what is best for your skin, especially during the winter months. 

4. Even More Hydration?

Aside from hydrating your skin with topical products, drinking as much water as you possibly can will also help keep your skin cells hydrated. 

5. Protect From The Inside

Supplements and Vitamins are designed to give your body the key nutrients to nourish your skin from the inside out. H&H Science’s Anti-Aging Vitamins help promote skin radiance and helps to maintain a more youthful and healthy appearance. In addition to providing antioxidant protection, the anti-aging benefits of our Anti-Aging Vitamin vary, and may include: supporting collagen and elastin production, increasing or normalizing skin cell turnover, providing anti-inflammatory benefits, speeding the healing process of blemishes, hydrating and plumping the skin, and protection from harmful UV rays.

Fall Into Beautiful Skin

As days begin to shorten and the heat turns into crisp fall air, your skin’s hydration level may vary. In the summer, the humidity tends to increase your skin’s moisture level. As the air and wind get colder, this causes drier skin. While many are excited to bring out their fall wardrobe, including myself, it is important to also detox your skin and repair summer damage before the weather begins to change.

Summer Damage

While summertime is full of fun activities and nice weather, it also leads to a lot of harmful effects on the skin. Throughout the summer months, aside from the risks of sun damage, dehydration also comes along with the hot weather. With the hot temperatures, an increase in sweat and oil production can cause acne breakouts due to clogged pores. With prolonged sun exposure, skin discoloration, wrinkle formation and the risk of skin cancer are also side effects of exposure and damage form the sun’s rays. Not only does the weather have damaging effects on the skin, but time spent in the swimming pool and chlorine also leads to dehydration of the skin.

How To Prep For Fall

Giving your skin some love and attention before the season changes is crucial.

By increasing your intake of antioxidants, such as adding H&H Science C-Bright Serum to your skin care regimen, you are helping to prevent breakouts and dry skin as the weather gets cooler.  Switching to gentler and more hydrating skin care products is also important, as your skin needs an increase in moisture throughout the cooler months. This will also make your skin less likely to itch, crack or look red throughout the season. Lastly, facial peels help to exfoliate the dull outer layer of the skin, which can also decrease discoloration that has come along during the summer. It is pivotal to reverse superficial damage from the summer sun on the surface. Using our Youthful Skin Peel Kit can help deliver noticeable anti-aging and skin smoothing benefits, and improves the appearance of pigmentation, fine lines and texture, from the comfort of your home.
