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.

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.



Hydration vs. Moisturizing

We so often choose skin care and makeup products that moisturize and hydrate our skin, as we know that especially during the colder months, it is important to be sure our skin has enough water. Although the words hydrate and moisturize are often used interchangeably, they do not mean the same thing. While they do both provide our skin with nourishment, knowing the difference between the two will help us make a better decision, depending on our skin’s specific needs. 

What Is The Difference?

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. How they go about achieving this result, however, is the true difference.

Naturally, our skin has a barrier that protects itself from damage and water loss. Those that are prone to having dry skin usually aren’t producing enough cells in order to form this protective barrier. This makes it hard for the skin to lock in moisture. Moisturizers would then help trap natural oils on the surface of your skin, in order to maintain a healthy balance of moisture. 

On the other hand, hydration refers to the amount of water in the skin, not just on the surface. Therefore, hydrators deliver moisture down to the skin’s layers. An easy way to remember is dehydrated skin lacks water, and therefore would require hydration while dry skin lacks oil and needs to be moisturized.

What Do I Need?

Your skin needs both moisturizers and hydrators to maintain it’s health. Hydrating is what makes our skin soft, but if there is no oil on the surface to protect this hydration from evaporating, then it is not doing any good. Dry skin that is hydrated, yet not moisturized, will still flake. Conversely, if you’re applying a moisturizer and providing oil to the surface in order to smooth your skin, it is still lacking in hydration, which ultimately is what makes your skin soft. 


It is important to choose a hydrator and moisturizer that works with your skin type and level of sensitivity. Hyaluronic acid is a crucial ingredient for hydrating. It is found in our H&H Science Skin Quench Hydrating Serum, as well as many other H&H Science products. As for moisturizers, go for rich creams that are packed with oils, extracts and nutrients in order to retain moisture, such as our H&H Science Facial Moisturizer

For those that have oily or acne prone skin, it is important to look for products that are non-comedogenic, such as our H&H Science Ultra Lite Oil Free Moisturizer, as it will not clog your pores and are less likely to cause breakouts. 




How To: Aging By Decade

As we age and our bodies change, our skin care products should change too. The same cleanser you used in your 20s might not work as well on your skin when you are in your 30s. During different stages of life, we have certain skin conditions and concerns. It is important to be aware of your skin during these phases, and use products that are applicable to your skin type and concerns.


In your 20s, you can still get acne breakouts, especially if this is something you struggled with as a teen. Cleansing and moisturizing are pivotal in your skin care routine, as well as taking the steps to prevent acne. Although fine lines and wrinkles may not be of concern, it is a good time to start preventing aging before it is too late. Adding retinol to your nighttime routine works wonders in preventing both acne and aging. This vitamin A derivative can help prevent and treat clogged pores, while exfoliating excess pigment and sunspots, as well as building new elastin and collagen. Your 20s is also a good time to begin making sunscreen a habit. Applying it as your last step of your routine in the morning will help prevent photoaging and the development of fine lines and dark spots (as well as preventing skin cancer of course). 


In your 30s, aging starts to creep up. Not only does your career and personal life get more intense and hectic, but your once youthful skin now has a few fainted laugh lines and dark spots. While your 30s is a great time, it is also a lot of work. Although this stress does have an affect on your skin, but there are still chances to fight these early signs of aging. By now, you’ve hopefully got cleaning, moisturizing and protecting your skin with sunscreen daily down pat. Now, adding in a mix of exfoliation twice a week will keep your skin clear and smooth. As stress may be at an all-time high, the skin under your eyes is usually the first area to show signs of poor skin health and stress. Adding an eye cream to your routine will help boost collagen and elastin production. 


By the time you hit your 40s, your skin is a reflection of your skin care routine over the past few decades. The hormones and stress from your 30s carry into your 40s, while noticeable signs of aging begin to appear. Luckily, there are still ways to keep your skin concerns under control. Continuing to apply sunscreen during your morning routine is crucial, as sun exposure is a top cause of aging. Beginning to use a prescription-strength retinol, if you haven’t already, is also important, as it helps even out skin tones and stimulates the collagen in your skin. In your 40s, your skin may begin to have a certain dullness to it. Hydration is key to improving this concern, as using moisturizers and serums will help give the healthy look you are striving for.


In your 50s, sagging and thinning skin begin to surface. The hormone decline that comes along with menopause creates a drastic change to our skin and body, making it essential that you consider maintaining your skin’s health as top priority. Dryness is also a common condition in your 50s, so using products that are infused with antioxidants and humectants will keep your skin nourished and radiant. Using a retinol during your nighttime routine promotes collagen production and cell turnover, helping to slow down the aging process. Therefore, no matter what product you choose, make sure you’re looking for two things: collagen production and hydration!


In your 60s, your skin becomes more sensitive than before, so using harsher prescription-strength products should be taken down a notch, by either switching to a gentler product or reducing the amount of times you use it. The sagging, thinning and dry skin from your 50s will continue in your 60s and beyond, therefore repairing and hydrating will remain crucial. Preventing additional sagging by using a hardworking serum can be helpful, using this product on your neck and chest as well. While we want to achieve younger-looking skin, and ‘trick’ people into thinking we are a decade younger than we are, it is far more important to be sure that you are maintaining beautiful and healthy skin that you are confident in. 


As I am sure you noticed retinol was discussed in almost every decade as an important product for your skin: don’t forget that our Retinol Plus Youthful Peel Kits will be on sale this week- August 29th – 31st. This high-strength, two-step peel kit delivers noticeable anti-aging and skin smoothing benefits, and improves the appearance of pigmentation, fine lines and texture.
