Winter Skin Care Tips from Arizona’s Experts

At Le Salon Cache, we understand that even the Arizona winters can take their toll on your skin. Since the air is so dry and cool, it makes it much easier for the skin to dry out and crack, especially if you’re outside on a regular basis or maintain a more active lifestyle.

Below, we’ve collected some tips for skin care in winter to ensure that yours remains healthy and vibrant.

Invest in a Humidifier

During the wintertime, if you have the heat cranked a little higher than usual, it can quickly cause your skin to dry out. If you don’t take care of it, your skin could easily crack in places and it can be quite painful. However, investing in a humidifier is one way to keep your skin fresh and moist. It will also help you breathe a little easier at night.

Use of Lotions, Creams, & Soaps

There are a host of lotions, creams, and soaps on the market designed specifically for preventing dry skin. During less extreme seasons, using a water-based moisturizer is often enough for those who suffer from dry skin. However, skin care in winter requires a different approach. Moisturizers and skin products for winter contain humectants designed to collect moisture and emollients to keep it from evaporating.

Some humectants often found in winter skin care products include:

  • Glycerin
  • Honey
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acid
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Hyaluronic Acid

Some emollients found in creams, moisturizers, and washes are:

  • Jojoba Seed Oil
  • Petrolatum
  • Paraffin
  • Shea Butter
  • Coconut Oil

Natural Remedies for Dry Skin

In addition to the variety of over the counter and prescription skin care products, there are also some natural steps you can take to help you make it through the winter. Your skin has a natural acid mantle that helps protect it from bacteria and keeps moisture in. However, this barrier is also quite sensitive and can be easily damaged with stronger soaps and skin cleaning products.

Stronger perfumes and deodorants can also be particularly harmful to your skin so if you can find some more natural products, such as scented oils in place of perfume, the better your skin will feel.
