Winter Skin Care | How to take care of your skin during colder weather
Days are shorter, nights cooler — but is your skin care still the same? When you store your summer wardrobe away, it’s a good reminder to change up your skin care regimen to help your skin through the dry winter air.
First, see your facialist! Now’s the perfect time to clear your skin from traces of the summer’s sun and surf. Getting a professional exfoliating and hydrating treatment will help your natural oils come through - leaving your skin ready to face the winter.
Next, your home treatment routine is just as important. Stepping up serums and moisturizers in your daily regimen is key to keeping the skin hydrated even in the cold, dry air. The Nighttime Skin Quencher is perfect for the cooler season as Olga developed it to deeply nourish and rehydrate skin while gently exfoliating.
If you haven’t already, add an eye treatment day and night to moisturize while fighting signs of aging. Our favorite - The Eye Cream - also doubles as a lip treatment (goodbye chapped lips)!
Make time for an at-home facial a couple of times a week to keep your skin looking clear and hydrated. We love the Ageless Facial in a Box during the winter as it hydrates overnight while keeping the skin looking plump and fresh.
Traveling for the holidays? Avoid bringing any water-based skin care products on your trip if you’re traveling someplace cold as they can freeze on your skin. Go for an oil-based product instead. And don’t forget sunblock if you’re spending the holidays outside! Yes, even in the winter Olga's favorite: Skinceuticals SPF 45.
Lastly, don’t forget that what you consume has a great deal of influence on your skin. Protect your skin from within by staying hydrated and increasing essential fatty acids in your diet - think oils, seeds, and oily fish.
So, there’s really no need to worry about losing your summer glow this season - the right skin care will have you looking flawless year-round!
