Winter Skin Care Regime | Holland & Barrett

Do you get dry skin in winter? You’d be surprised at how many people develop dry patches here and there.

But here’s the thing, you don’t have to settle for winter time dry skin. With the right winter skin fixes, it’s possible to keep those patches at bay and have hydrated, fresher and glowing skin, even in the deepest, darkest depths of winter.

Cold air + heating = dry skin

When the seasons change and winter kicks in, the weather gets colder, which can make the water in our skin evaporate more quickly. It’s believed skin can lose up to 25% of its moisture-retaining properties in the winter. The wind can also be harsh and have a drying effect on our skin too.1

What’s more, when the temperature drops, our heating gets turned on/up, which is a winter skin-drying culprit too. The warmer, drier air can invariably dry our skin out, especially if we’re not getting much fresh air into our homes either.2

The colder weather and our heated homes can both take their toll on our skin come the winter. That’s why it’s so important to adopt a good winter skincare regime that keeps your skin hydrated and moisturised during those colder months.

How to prevent winter time dry skin

Keeping your skin hydrated is key. And the good news is, there are some great products on the market to enable you to adopt the right skincare regime. Like these four winter skin saviours below:

Winter skincare product #1: Dr Organic Snail Gel 50ml

What is it?

This gel contains Helix Aspersa Muller, the substance snails naturally produce to quickly regenerate their skin and shell when they get damaged. Aloe vera and bioactive plant ingredients have been blended with the snail gel to produce a refreshing and moisturising face gel, leaving skin glowing and feeling soft. Made with natural ingredients, it can be soothing for sensitive skin and have an anti-ageing effect on facial skin.
