We’re only just in the middle of fall, but are you already experiencing irritated dry winter skin? You do not need to suffer all the way to spring. Hale Cosmeceuticals has the tips and the products to give your skin real relief.
You can’t control how much humidity the cold air outside holds (or zaps from your skin), but you can control how much moisture is in the air indoors. To minimize dry, chapped skin, keep your home humidified by using a cool mist humidifier or boiling water. Even line-drying your clothes can boost ambient moisture to reduce skin-level moisture loss.
Many popular facial cleansers are actually overly effective. In addition to removing dirt, oil and makeup, they remove all natural oils, too, leaving your skin dry and defenseless. (If your face is squeaky clean when you rinse off the lather, that’s a sure sign of over-drying.) Switch to a gentle soap-free cleanser.
Read the ingredients of all your skin care products—cleansers, toners and moisturizers. Make sure you are using formulas that will be gentle to already-irritated skin. That means no strong fragrances and no alcohols.
For dry skin, a quality moisturizer is worth its weight in gold. Find a naturally-derived oil-based cream that locks in moisture. Hale Cosmeceuticals has a number that can relieve and restore dry skin, including:
