Proper skincare is a year-round commitment, and with Canadian winters being quite rough on our skin, finding the right products to prevent and combat issues such as dryness, itchiness, flakiness, dehydration and chapped lips can make all the difference. Here are our tips and recommendations to enjoy healthy skin throughout the colder months.
Opt for a Creamy Cleanser
Switching to a richer, more skin-protecting cleanser in the winter will make your skin feel deeply cleansed, comforted, and elastic.
Use a Gentle Scrub
Remove dead skin & promote hydration by reaching for a scrub that will calm instead of further irritate.
Boost Hydration with a Facial Mask
Hydration is key to soft, soothed and smooth skin. Products that penetrate through your skin and deliver water are vital if you have dehydrated skin.
Incorporate a Face Oil to Lock Moisture
Adding oil to your skincare routine is a simple way to repair your skin from the winter stresses while allowing it to retain moisture.
Exfoliate & Nourish Your Lips
Lip exfoliation is necessary for their long-term nourishment. Following up with a balm will ensure deep hydration.
Use a Cream Specifically Designed for Hands
Hand creams are usually thicker than regular body lotions or creams and are slightly more resilient to repeated hand washings.
Achieve Soft Skin, All Over
Help stimulate collagen production and circulation and allow your body lotions to penetrate more efficiently so that you’re not as itchy and flaky.
The Thicker, the Better
Switch to a thicker moisturizer, such as a body butter or body crème for your skin to remain nice and soft over a longer period of time.
Gleaming Skin from Head to Toe
Make your winter skin glow with the addition of a body oil to simultaneously moisturize and strengthen your skin barrier.
