Winter Skincare Tips

How about that picture perfect skin?

Hello, winter. We’ve all been waiting for the temperatures to drop down, which sadly means no more sundresses and beaches but it’s time for coats and bonfires! With the weather changes during this period, we need to pay more attention to our skincare routines. Here are some tips for healthy, hydrated, fresh-looking skin.

Recommended by:

Dr. Mohammed Kashmar, cosmetic dermatologist

1. Wear sunscreen
It’s winter time, which means the weather is dry. Yet sunrays can easily affect our skin even more causing discoloration, and sunburns. It is recommended to use sunscreen before you begin the day.

2. Moisturize
We can’t emphasize how important it is to moisturize, as the humidity decreases during winter. Use a light daily facial moisturizer to defeat dry skin.

Oily Skin:

Known to be prone to developing acne, it is recommended to use a facial wash that decreases the oily residue on the skin’s surface, drying it appropriately.

Dry Skin:

Prone to looking dry, which can lead to rough and cracked skin, it is recommended to use a moisturizing facial wash, in addition to moisturizers to ensure the skin is hydrated throughout the day.

Combination Skin:

A combination of oily and dry skin on different parts of the face. Use a combination-skin facial wash, and a non-oily moisturizer, where it hydrates the skin, but does not give or develop an oily texture to the skin.
