You may notice that your skin’s needs change from season to season. The most glaring change typically occurs during the winter. When the seasons change, so does your skin – and so should your skincare routine! Here are 3 tips to improve your skin health and tackle winter dryness this winter:
Moisturizing the skin is essential in combating dryness during the Winter months. The best thing you can do is moisturize right out of the shower or immediately after washing your face. Hot water and cleansers can remove natural oils from the skin, so it’s important to replenish them immediately. Ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, and Ceramides are great for improving the effects of dry skin.
TiZO Renewable Moisturizer contains Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, which help replenish the skin’s natural moisturizing factor and draw moisture to the skin.
Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is essential and using a humidifier at night is really helpful in keeping your skin hydrated and avoiding dryness, flakiness, and irritation during the winter months.
Sunscreen should be worn daily, regardless of season, temperature, or forecast. UVA rays are present and remain strong all year round and can penetrate both clouds and glass, so the exposure to harmful and potentially cancerous UV rays is a risk even in the Winter. This is why wearing sunscreen daily is a must.
Like your skin, your favorite sunscreen may change every season. Whereas you might like TiZO3’s matte finish in the summer, you may want to opt for something a little more moisturizing in the Winter.
A moisturizing sunscreen/primer like AM Replenish SPF 40 is perfect for daily use and has added ceramides to help restore the lipid layer, resulting in long-lasting moisture.
For our more sensitive skin types, TiZO Ultra Zinc Tinted SPF 40 is a moisturizing mineral sunscreen formulated with 20% Zinc Oxide, making it perfect for soothing and protecting the skin. It’s also available Non-Tinted.
Don’t forget about the lips! TiZO Lip Protection SPF 45 is a tinted mineral sunscreen/lip balm that is perfect worn alone or under your favorite lipstick shade, providing mineral sun protection and moisture this winter. Sun exposure can slowly break down collagen, leading to thinning lips. Lip balm with SPF will not only help with dry and chapped lips, but also aids in reducing the visible signs of premature aging!
Protection doesn’t just mean sunscreen protection from harmful UV rays. It can also come in the form of protection from the elements. Cool air and harsh dry winds remove the natural oils from the epidermis, which can cause dryness and irritation.
TiZO Environmental Skin Protectant helps create a barrier on your skin to protect against the effects of wind and dry weather. With ingredients like Bisabolol, dimethicone, and copper peptides, this soothing gel cream relieves chapped and cracked skin while also providing moisture to the skin.
We know winter skin can be challenging, but these 3 tips will help keep your skin looking and feeling its best over the next couple of months!
