Using moisturizing products can protect your skin against winter dryness and damage.

 

Is winter giving your skin the blues? Dry skin is very common in winter because of both dry heat and windy conditions. When your skin gets dry or windburned, it can get red or even flaky unless you take steps to combat winter's effects. Sometimes it's difficult to know how to treat winter skin or how your skin's needs are different in the winter.


Fortunately, there are a number of things that you can do to fight back against the harshness of winter and its impact on your skin. Sometimes improving your skin is as simple as incorporating a new product into your skin care routine. Read on for some key products you can use to protect your skin from dryness and irritation during the colder months.

1. Cleansing Milk Gentle Non-Drying Cleanser

This cleanser is good for very dry to dry combination skin, as well as sensitive and mature skin, combining the gentle moisturizing effects of glycerin with grape seed oil for added moisturizing power. It also contains antioxidants that help heal skin damage. Gentle and safe for your skin, it can even be used with a cotton pad to remove makeup at the end of the day.

2. TotaloeTM Calming and Hydrating Gel

For skin that needs hydrating after cleansing, this oil-free gel contains aloe and green tea extract that will temporarily tighten skin and get it ready for makeup application. For skin that has been windburned or exposed to dry air in winter, this gel will fight redness and moisturize at the same time. It can be used with all skin types.

3. Day Treatment Lotion SPF 15

Wearing this lotion every day will protect your skin against sun exposure to UVA and UVB rays. It contains aloe and zinc peptides and can be used for all skin types. In addition to sun protection, this lotion reduces skin irritation and can be mixed with loose powder mineral makeup for a tinted makeup base.

4. Marine Skin Nourishing Cream

Winter can be rough on skin, but Vivant Skin Care products can help.

 

If you have dry or combination skin, the combination of grape seed oil, algae extract and oat protein in this cream will replenish your skin as well as moisturize it. This cream can be used as a day or nighttime moisturizer depending on your needs.

5. Allantoin Sedating & Hydrating Lotion

When your otherwise healthy skin becomes irritated by fierce winter winds or dried out by a lack of humidified air, this lotion will calm your skin and reduce redness and inflammation. It can be applied on top of another product to alleviate dryness 1 to 3 times a day as needed. Your skin will feel better in no time.
