It’s cold, dry and windy outside. Does that mean we should treat our skin different? Of course! Here are some winter face washing tips for sensitive skin:
If you have dry skin, you need to use a gentle cleanser. The most important thing is to make sure it does not contain any harsh or irritating chemicals, such as alcohol. I recommend using a gentle cleanser that contains ingredients such as aloe vera or chamomile. These ingredients will soothe the skin and keep it from drying out further.
If you have oily skin, you need to wash your face at least twice a day with a gentle cleanser. You should also use an oil-free moisturizer after washing. Dry skin produces more oil to compensate for the lack of moisture in the air. So even if you have oily skin, it needs moisture too!
If you have combination skin (oily in some places and dry in others), then you need to use a gentle cleanser twice a day and an oil-free moisturizer after each wash. You should also avoid products that contain alcohol or other harsh chemicals that could irritate your skin.
Sensitive skin requires extra special care during the cold, dry winter months. Face wash can help keep your face healthy and moisturized by removing the dirt that builds up on your skin during the day.
Removing this dirt is an important part of a daily skincare routine, regardless of the season. When it comes to sensitive skin, though, you have to be careful about what face wash you’re using.
Our team of beauty experts has produced this guide to help people with sensitive skin find the perfect face wash for them this winter!
How to Find the Best Face Wash for Your Skin Type?
1. First, determine your skin type: normal, dry, oily, or combination.
2. Choose a face wash that’s formulated specifically for your skin type.
3. For those with sensitive skin, we’d recommend starting with one of these four face washes, designed with sensitive skin in mind:
Winter can be tough on your face. The combination of cold, dry air and harsh winds leaves your skin feeling dry, itchy and irritated. To make matters worse, the change in temperature can also cause redness, flaking, and chapping around your cheeks and chin. Protecting your skin from the elements is crucial if you want to keep your face looking healthy and hydrated all winter long.
If you have sensitive skin, finding the right face wash during colder months can be especially challenging. Many soaps can cause irritation and dryness because of their dyes, perfumes, parabens and sulfates. If you have sensitive skin or eczema, choosing the right face wash can make a big difference in how comfortable you will feel during colder months. Below are some tips for choosing the right soap for your sensitive skin this winter.
Choose a Cleanser With Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are usually less irritating to sensitive skin than synthetic products. Look for cleansers with ingredients like aloe vera, green tea leaf extract or jojoba oil. These natural ingredients are excellent at hydrating and soothing the skin without leaving your face feeling tight or itchy after washing.
Look for Products That Are Paraben-Free
Many people suffer from skin irritations during the winter, including dryness and flaking. These problems are often caused by excessive washing with harsh soaps, which strip the skin of its natural oils. Cold weather can also make sensitive skin worse, as wind and chilly temperatures draw moisture from the skin.
In general, it is important to choose a facial cleanser that is gentle and non-irritating. Cleansers that are labeled “moisturizing” or “mild” are usually a good choice for sensitive complexions. Look for products that contain soothing ingredients such as aloe vera, honey and chamomile. Ingredients to avoid include alcohol, menthol, peppermint and eucalyptus oil.
If your face feels tight after washing it, you probably need to increase your moisturizing routine. Moisturizers work by creating a protective layer over your skin that retains moisture. Some moisturizers also contain humectants (such as glycerin or hyaluronic acid) that draw water into the outer layer of skin.
For extra protection against the elements, use a thick moisturizer at night before going to bed. You may also want to apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on
With winter upon us, it’s time to make sure your skin is ready for the harsh weather. Fortunately, if you have sensitive skin, there are plenty of steps you can take to keep your face looking fresh and vibrant.
First and foremost, make sure you wash your face using a mild cleanser. Use warm water instead of hot water since hot water can cause irritation. If you need even more gentle of a face wash, consider using a foaming cleanser as it will be less likely to irritate your skin. As you’re washing your face, don’t rub too vigorously as this can also cause irritation.
The next step is moisturizing. Moisturizers provide an extra layer of protection on the surface of your skin that helps prevent drying and flaking. Once again, be sure to use a moisturizer that’s appropriate for sensitive skin (and avoid products with fragrances which are especially irritating). You should apply moisturizer twice daily (in the morning and at night) but especially after bathing or washing your face when the natural oils on your skin may have been removed.
Finally, protect yourself from sunburns by applying sunscreen before going outdoors. Make sure you use a sunscreen that doesn’t contain PABA which can also irrit
With the days growing shorter and temperatures dropping, it’s time to make sure you’re taking care of your skin. Here are a few tips for keeping your face clean and healthy this winter:
Each year I get more and more girls telling me they have sensitive skin. Even with natural makeup, many girls are having reactions to certain products. Is there a way to go all natural with your makeup and skincare routine? Yes there is!
I always recommend the same basic things…
1) Cleanse your skin only twice a day with a mild cleanser that does not contain soap. A great one for you to try is Dr Hauschka Cleansing Milk.
2) Do not over-cleanse your skin as this can lead to redness, tightness and irritation.
3) Always use lukewarm water when cleansing your face; never use hot water. Hot water can strip away the natural oils in the skin and leave it dry, dehydrated and rough looking.
4) If you feel like you need to exfoliate, make sure it is extremely mild. Something like Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skins but will still help buff away any dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin.
