How to Prevent Dry Skin During Colder Months

Updated: Feb 22, 2023

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.

Kindly kick dirt, oil, and bacteria to the curb and watch dry patches on the face disappear with NatureCares Blue Tansy Oleogel 2-in-1 Oil-Milk Facial Cleanser. Double cleansing has never been easier as it dissolves impurities and makeup in only one step as it transforms from oil to milk, giving you a fresh-faced feel without stripping your skin. Blue tansy’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties calm and soothe dry, itchy skin, making it a must-have comforting cleanser in your skincare routine for dry skin.

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.

Switch out your shot of espresso for an exfoliating bar soap rich in coffee with an energising scent to wake you and your skin up on a cold, dark morning. It’ll gently buff away dry patches on the face and dramatically increase product absorption with coffee granules, whilst almond and jojoba oil heal and hydrate dry, itchy skin. Plus, NatureCares Coffee Exfoliating Bar Soap Skin Brightening & Renewal Soap will reveal beautiful, radiant skin, so you’ll no longer dread chilly mornings and feel ready to take on the day – glow get em’!

Use a Super Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum

No skincare routine for dry skin is complete without a hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a powerful humectant that can draw and hold up to a thousand times its weight in water, but the best part? Despite its slightly scary name, it’s a natural sugar found in the body, so it’s completely safe for all skin types.

Consider your skincare routine for dry skin complete with this HA serum as it contains higher and lower molecular weights to deliver moisture into the deepest layers of skin – it’s the enemy of dry, itchy skin and your new best friend. NatureCares Retinol HA Anti ageing Serum With Squalane: Youth Re-born also features retinyl palmitate, the mildest form of retinol, for those with dry, sensitive skin looking to boost collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten and smooth the skin without causing irritation.

Choose a Face Cream Instead of a Moisturiser

Using a face cream during colder months is non-negotiable. Face creams replenish and trap moisture in the skin, so you can see why they’re not up for discussion when relieving dry skin on the face. While a moisturiser is the go-to, if you have extremely dry skin, it’s recommended that you use a face cream during autumn and winter instead as they’re thicker, richer formulas that’ll intensely moisturise and shield your skin.

This face cream for seriously dry skin will instantly hydrate the skin and hold onto its newfound moisture with rosehip and pomegranate seed oil. While moisture is a huge part of the anti-ageing process, rosehip oil also increases the rate of cell turnover, bringing brand new skin cells to the surface and nurturing them to optimal health with vitamins A, D and E. NatureCares Natural Anti-aging Anti-wrinkle Face Cream/Butter with Rosehip, Pomegranate,E + is the secret to fighting dry patches, fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
