5 Tips to Prevent Dry Winter Skin

5 Tips to Prevent Dry Winter Skin

Cherise Evertz
Cold air, indoor heating, low humidity levels and harsh winter wind can all zap your skin of moisture. This can leave your skin looking dull and drier than normal.


There are 5 simple steps you can take to keep your skin looking healthy this Winter.

1. Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise

Any time you wash your face, hands, or body, you strip your skin of its natural oils. Since these oils help to lock in moisture, it’s vital to replace them. That’s why it’s important to use an oil or moisturiser any time you wash your skin, especially in winter.

Apply Organic Formulations Rosehip Oil before your moisturiser for an extra dose of hydration and to give skin a beautiful glow.


2. Use overnight treatments

Overnight treatments are an excellent way to revitalise or prevent dry skin. As they are a heavier type of cream, it can take longer for them to be absorbed into your skin.


3. Choose natural for allergenic or irritated skin

The Winter season can cause skin flare ups of conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Choosing natural anti-inflammatories can aid and soothe itchiness to relieve or prevent further irritation.


4. Go easy on exfoliants and scrubs

Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and can help keep your skin looking smooth and vibrant. But it’s possible to over exfoliate your skin resulting in inflammation, redness or irritation if you do it too often or use the wrong products.


5. Try adding occlusives to your routine

You may want to consider incorporating occlusive ingredients into your skin care routine.

Occlusive ingredients provide a physical barrier to lock moisture into your skin. Examples of occlusive ingredients include:

    • shea butter
    • cocoa butter
    • rosehip oil
    • jojoba oil
