4 Ways to Keep Your Skin Deeply Hydrated All Winter Long
Winter is right around the corner. You know what that means. Dry skin! It’s not uncommon for skin to become both dry and dehydrated during the winter months. Winter air can wick away moisture from the surface of your skin. This leaves it looking and feeling less than its normal self. But you can act now. If you want hydrating, clear skin this winter, here are four steps to take.

Winter is right around the corner. You know what that means—dry skin. Winter air can be a bane. It’s not uncommon for skin to become dry and dehydrated during winter as the air wicks moisture away from the surface of your skin. This leaves it looking and feeling less than its usual self.

How can you tell if your skin is dry or dehydrated? Dry skin can look and feel flaky and rough while dehydrated skin can look and feel tight, and you may notice an increase in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. When you pinch your skin, it may not snap back into place instantly. While dry skin and dehydrated skin can look different, these two winter skin conditions can be counteracted in much the same way. With a few simple steps, you can achieve glowing, clear skin all season long.

Hydrate From Within

The most crucial step in fighting back against dry winter air is staying hydrated all day. Always keep a beverage near you. At home, at the office, in the car, and everywhere else you go. Water, tea, and fruit juice are all great sources of hydration; just watch out for sugary drinks. Excess sugar can also be detrimental to the look and feel of your skin. Focus on clean hydration. It’s great for your overall well-being and helps your skin maintain moisture.

Use Hydrating Cleansers, Toners, Mists, and Other ‘Boosting’ Skincare Products

Drinking plenty of water may be the best way to hydrate from the inside, but what’s the best way to hydrate from the outside? It can come down to your choice of skincare products. Hydrating cleansers are musts. You don’t want a cleanser that strips your skin of all its natural oils. Of course, for optimum hydration, you’ll have best results from using hydration-boosting products for every part of your routine.

If you’re targeting dehydrated skin (not just dry skin), deeply hydrating and nourishing products can be the way to go. A nourishing deep wrinkle filler can be beneficial if you notice an increase in fine lines and wrinkles during the winter. Keep these kinds of products, along with those made with hyaluronic acid (a naturally hydrating ingredient), in your winter skincare rotation to maximize results.

Turn Up the Humidity

You might not be able to control the humidity outside, but you can inside. If the air in your home gets dry and stale during the winter (or any time of year), it can also dry out your skin. To counteract this, a humidifier can make a big difference. As you know, it adds moisture back into the air. As the moisture is added back into the air, it can help balance out your skin. In a way, it protects your skin.

Get Plenty of Sleep

You’ve probably heard this advice more than any other. It’s common advice, and for many of us, it’s easier said than done. During winter, and when skin can be its driest, getting plenty of sleep (7-9 hours, which varies from person to person) is all the more critical. Sleep is crucial to overall good health and well-being, making it vital for your skin. As you sleep, your skin goes through a regenerative cycle. The more you can do to promote this regenerative cycle—like getting plenty of sleep—the more your skin can do to counteract the effects of dry winter air.
