How to Prevent Dry Skin During Colder Months

Updated: Nov 19, 2021

While some of us wait all year round for colder months to indulge in unlimited hot chocolates, cosy nights in, and bonfires, dry patches on the face are one thing that none of us looks forward to. During autumn and winter the humidity level outside drops, meaning the water in our skin evaporates quicker, and dry, itchy skin becomes as common as rosy cheeks. But with just a few changes to your skincare routine, you can avoid dry skin and enjoy everything the colder seasons have to offer.

Switch to a Gentle Cleanser That Doesn’t Strip the Skin

Using a harsh cleanser can contribute to dry skin on the face as it strips the skin of its natural oils that help to keep it moisturised. That squeaky-clean feeling we crave is actually a sign of the skin’s natural oils being stripped, leading to dry, itchy skin. Choosing a gentle cleanser will hold onto essential oils and keep the skin’s barrier intact to protect it against cold weather.

Continue to Exfoliate to Remove Dry Skin Build-up

Yes, we said it. Exfoliating dry, flaky skin on the face and leaving the house without a jacket now may seem like equally bad ideas, but it can help to remove these dry skin flakes as it exfoliates. Without an exfoliator in your skincare routine for dry skin, these flakes will build up on the surface and prevent the skin from fully absorbing products that work to fix dry skin. In other words, everything you do to counteract dry skin won’t work effectively without an exfoliator, so it’s pretty much the gateway to smooth, soft skin.
