Skin care in winter should avoid these 5 mistakesadmin
We only recently gave you tips on correct mask hygiene ( here ), but there are also a few things to consider when it comes to general skin care in the cold season. If you notice that your skin doesn’t quite like you in winter, then it could be due to mistakes in your routine, take a look:
1. You don’t adjust your skincare routine
With the temperatures, our skin also changes and with it its needs. For example, while combination skin tends to be oily and shiny in summer, it feels dry and has scaly patches in winter. Instead of light summer care, we prefer to use a richer cream that provides a lot of moisture. Paying close attention to what your own skin needs is worthwhile.
2. You neglect sensitive skin zones
Unfortunately, many of us all too often neglect certain parts of our body when it comes to caring for our hands: hands in particular are often particularly brittle and dry in winter and require an extra portion of attention. But the shins also need a little more affection: Since there are hardly any sebaceous glands in these areas to produce the body’s own fats, apply a lot of cream here.
3. You do without night care
Many believe that rich care during the day is enough to do without it in the evening. The opposite is the case: special care supports the skin during the night during regeneration. Try moisturizing, rich night care products to minimize dryness lines. Work in the care from the center of the face with gentle circular movements.
4. You save on sun protection
Experts agree that sun protection is the be-all and end-all when it comes to preventing skin aging and wrinkles (not to mention skin cancer!). UV rays are harmful no matter the time of year, so you should always wear sunscreen, even in winter. You can read here which sunscreens we can recommend .
5. You drink too little
We know it’s easy to forget to drink enough when it’s not 30 degrees and we’re sweating from our pores. So here’s the reminder: Stay hydrated! Also in the winter! Aside from fatigue, dizziness and sluggishness, dehydration causes dry mouth, dry and sallow skin and chapped lips. And you probably don’t want to do that, do you?
