7 Trends for Managing Winter Skin
Oh, the weather outside is frightful.
But the fire is so delightful!
And yet, the frightful weather and the warm fire can both wreak havoc on your skin. Fortunately, there are some trending things you can do to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth this winter.
#1 Radiant Skin
While no one wants a “shiny” face (which is why women have been powdering their noses for decades!), a radiant, dewy complexion is beautiful and healthy. One way to achieve that radiant glow is by using toner. Often skipped among even the most fastidious of skin care regimens, using a toner helps remove dead skin cells from the surface while providing pH balance to reveal radiant skin, even in the winter.
#2 Face Sculpting
Contouring make-up is so last year! Go for natural, non-surgical contours. Using techniques of massage, you can refresh your complexion, firm your skin, and even reduce puffiness while reshaping the appearance of your face, especially around the cheeks, eyes and jawline.
#3 Personalized Treatments
One of the hottest skin care trends in 2020 is personalized treatments. Using technology to analyze your specific skin can open up the opportunity for tailored skin care treatments. Whether using at-home tools or a professional analysis with a dermatologist or esthetician, ensuring you’re treating your skin needs will allow you to put your best face forward.
#4 Green and Sustainable Skin Care
Another fantastic trend (not just for winter either) is seeking out green or sustainable skin care products. This can take many forms, from using products with fewer ingredients to minimal or zero waste packaging to refillable products. If you’re mindful of the impact the products you’re using make on the environment or socioeconomic lives of others, finding these skin care products more readily available is truly a blessing!
#5 Clean Skin Care Ingredients
As many women become aware of how their skin care products impact others, the beauty industry is trending toward clean, natural ingredients. Bakuchiol and CBD are two popular natural ingredients surfacing. In addition to using natural ingredients, many people are seeking products without certain ingredients, including parabens, dyes, fragrances and alcohols, which can damage and dry out skin, especially in the winter months.
#6 Turn Down the Heat… in Your Shower
When you’re coming in from the cold weather, it’s almost instinctive to hop into a steaming hot shower. But the hotter the water, the more damaging it is to your skin. Choosing a lukewarm shower is much more gentle.
#7 Follow Up with Moisturizer
Whether you’re just out of the shower or have washed your hands (for the millionth time during cold and flu season!), follow up with a quality moisturizing cream. Lotions tend to contain a lot of water, alcohol and other drying agents. Creams and ointments lock moisture into skin better.
2020 Skin Care Trends That Make Sense!
