Skin Care in Winter Season

Cold weather can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it dry and itchy, flaky, and full of unsightly blotches. Harsh winds, freezing temperatures and even increased heating, can all leave your skin feeling and looking red, blotchy and dry. With cold winds and below freezing temperatures, a woman’s face can take quite a beating during the winter. 
 By caring for your skin year-round with a facial routine matching the needs of your face, you can avoid winter wear and tear on your skin. You can keep your skin looking healthy and radiant despite the harshness of winter. The important part is figuring out the right combination of products for your personal needs. There are different types of skin, and each type requires careful selection of cleansing products to avoid damage. Below we’ll describe each type, followed by the appropriate skin care products recommended for your needs.
Dry or Sensitive Skin: If using certain skin care products results in your face stinging or burning, you most likely have this type of skin. Other conditions which may arise are itchiness, redness or a rash-like patch, or skin more dry than it was before. Most regular soaps will result in you having this type of reaction every time you wash your face. There are alternatives however for women with this skin type. Many dermatologists will recommend using sensitive skin cleansers which are completely free of soap. For those who have extremely try or sensitive skin it may be necessary to also use a cleansing bar. If this is the case, you would simply alternate daily. After your face has been cleansed, you will now want to apply a light moisturizer. Choose one which is hypoallergenic and 
fragrance-free. You may want to choose one with sunscreen already in it as well.
Normal Skin: This type of skin is usually smooth, blemish-free and properly hydrated. If this is your skin type, you’re one of the lucky ones. You can choose almost any cleanser without worrying about a thing. When choosing a moisturizer, most people with normal skin only use one as a means of assuring their face is protected by an integrated sunscreen.
Oily Skin: Oily skin normally appears shiny or greasy. People with oily skin will normally have larger pores as well as blackheads. You can easily use any regular soap to clean your skin, since the drying factor could be beneficial for removing a lot of the oil. A 
moisturizer is not necessary, but if you choose to use one make sure it’s oil free as well as noncomedogenic. This means it won’t clog your pores or cause acne.
Combination Skin: If you find the skin on your T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) to be oily, but the rest of your face to be drier, you have combination skin. You can either choose a facial cleanser for this purpose at your local pharmacy or department store, or 
wash with a gentle cleanser in the morning while using an astringent which is free of alcohol later in the day. Be sure to always use a noncomedogenic, oil-free moisturizer all over your face. No matter what your skin type is, remember to be gentle with your 
face. Avoid using hot water or scrubbing with a washclothRemember to pat your face with the towel to dry it, not rub it. Most of all, apply your moisturizer to your face while your face is still damp or humid. This assists in the absorption of it into your skin.
