“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” is probably the last thing you want to hear if you’re the type of person who usually experiences skin issues during this season. You’re not the only one, though. Here are the most common problems and how to fix them:
Yes, even in the wintertime! Flushed cheeks are one thing, but sunburn — no thanks. “It’s equally important to wear sunscreen in the winter to prevent skin damage and redness because sunlight reflects off of the snow and can intensify your exposure,” says Dr. Katz. Source: Makeup
Winter air can be especially harsh—which is murder for those of us who already have naturally dry skin. Dry skin naturally produces less sebum, your skin’s natural lubricant, and so it often feels parched…especially in winter. To combat this, make sure you choose a moisturizer that’s extra-rich; slathering your face in night cream, even during the day, is usually a pretty safe bet. These creams are usually oil-based, which is exactly what dry skin needs to lock in the limited amount of sebum they create. Source: StyleCaster
Some men and women may sense the onset of dry skin and apply moisturizers and lotion to prevent it from becoming worse. Occasionally, they may overcompensate by applying too much moisturizer. If users begin to notice that their skin looks shiny or oily long after they have applied moisturizer, they may be using a stronger moisturizer than their skin needs, or they may be applying it too often. Breakouts and facial or body acne can be another indication of over-moisturizing. In such cases, users should cut back on the amount or on the frequency with which they apply the moisturizer, cream, or lotion. They may also want to try a different brand of moisturizer, such as one that is lighter and contains natural oils. Source: Ebay
