How to treat winter acne?

Currently it’s snowing out here and the temperature is below zero, and that makes it incredibly cold. That means your heater is now running at full speed, just like ours. That makes it nice and warm inside, but also a lot dryer. Unfortunately, your skin finds it slightly less nice than you do. If you suffer a lot of acne in the winter then it is a good idea to analyze if your skin may need more hydration during these dry times. It is wise to offer your skin some extras, such as a day and/or night cream that is aimed at nourishing your skin. I like this one very much from NAIF. Their night cream contains no irritating ingredients and is enriched with, among other things, almond oil, macadamia oil, avocado oil and shea butter. A very nourishing and fine night cream (and if you place an order for the first time at their website you will receive a 5 euro discount!). In addition, you can make yourself a sheet mask to further hydrate your skin, this can be read in one of my previous blog posts. You can use your favorite serum and oil that you already have at home! It is an easy and inexpensive way to intensely nourish your skin and prevent dehydration.

I speak from experience when I say that I always had trouble (and sometimes still do!) with an impure skin during the winter times. I always wondered how that could happen and whether I cared well enough for my skin. I used countless face washes and face scrubs to see if my skin benefited from that. Those are pretty much the standard products to grab when you suffer from impurities. But unfortunately not the right ones!

You might not expect it, but sometimes your skin needs hydration in order to protect external influences. Even if you have oily skin with impurities, it is still important to hydrate your skin well with a serum and a moisturizer. It is important to know that you can never get impurities by moisturizing your skin with care products. This is something that people often think, but that is only a fable. Even oily skin can be dehydrated!

The products that ultimately made the biggest difference for me were an exfoliant and a serum. An exfoliant helps you remove dead skin cells from your face, and with that you also remove sebum. With a serum you apply hydration again, so that bacteria that cause impurities gives you a smaller chance to penetrate your skin.

Have you already found your ideal winter products?
