In an ideal world, we’d continue to use our favorite skin care products forever, but because the changes in seasons create fluctuations in our skin, we need to rethink that fantasy.
And, since we’re in the thick of winter, it’s best to check out the ingredients in your products, making sure that they’re not causing dryness, inflammation, irritation or redness to your skin.
If any of the products in your current rotation fall on this list, cut them out or use them sparingly during the winter.
Instead, try a cold cream, cleansing lotions or a high-quality creamy cleanser.
Modify your use of retinoids to only nighttime for sure and only 2-3 times per week. Or, up your vitamin C and choose anti-aging and treatment based products with this tried-and-true antioxidant.
Focus on moisturizing, hydrating and oxygenizing masks and those that are more cream-based.
