With the holiday season rushing in, so do the chilly winds of Amihan. The shifting of the season may take a toll on the body, specifically the skin. The cold air and low humidity can dry the skin – causing it to be itchy, flaky and painful.
Some readily available skincare products can address this, but does it have the right formulation to combat skin problems brought by cold weather? Remember, what works for summer may not work for the colder weather, so it is best to use skincare products that can cope with the weather.
With an overwhelmingly broad variety of skincare products to choose from, how do you know which to pick up? Do not worry as we will guide you to which skincare essentials you must grab this season.
Moisture in the skin can be sucked out if the air is cold and dry. Moisturizing your skin is crucial for keeping it hydrated throughout the cold weather. Regular moisturizers will not cut it. Heavy and intense hydration manages antioxidant damage in the skin, keeping out irritants and locking in moisture.
Do not look far as Dermclinic’s NuDerm Supreme Revitalizing Moisturizer with Sunscreen has age-defying ingredients that nourishes, rejuvenates and whitens dry and dull skin.
- Gentle facial wash or cleanser
During the cold season, you may want to stir away from exfoliating scrubs. It is best to use gentle products that can remove dirt without over-drying the skin. Remember that the skin gets sensitive with the cold weather, so get a cleanser that soothes the skin rather inflame it.
Try NuDerm Supreme Mild Wash Lotion, a hypoallergenic cleanser formulated for sensitive and inflamed skin.
- Fragrance-free body soaps or body wash
It has been found from extensive research that fragrances are common sensitizing ingredients for all skin types. You may not see it, but in the long run, damage caused by fragrance in skincare products will be evident. This can be aggravated all the more with the cold season.
Aside from being hypoallergenic, Dermclinic’s NuDerm Supreme Mild Wash Lotion is also fragrance-free.
Just because it is cold, it does not mean it is time to ditch your sun block. Sun protection should be a year-round affair; especially in the Philippines which is a tropical country.
Use NuDerm Skin Care Systems Sunblock as barrier against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. NuDerm Sunblock is also equipped with a moisturizer to keep the skin nourished. This sunblock comes in SPF40 and SPF80.
- Nourishing night creams
One thing that people tend to overlook is skincare before hitting the bed. Exposed skin that is unprotected tends to dry and get irritated with cold air and rubbing with the bed sheets.
NuDerm Whitening Cream 10% with SPF24 and NuDerm Supreme Glytoner Cream 10% are Dermclinic products that are perfect candidates for nourishing night creams.
Now that we have narrowed the holiday skincare essentials, you know which to pick up once you visit the skin care stalls. Remember, our focus is on hydrating and moisturizing the skin during the cold weather.
