How to Tackle Dry Skin This Winter

We all know that winter can be tough on skin. Temperatures drop, and suddenly our skin might feel less dewy or supple than usual. Dryness, tightness, or discomfort may have already made their grand appearance for you this season, but don’t fret. There are plenty of ways to combat dry skin that unfortunately comes with the harshness of cold winters.

Not only can dry skin be irritating, but it also enhances the appearance of fine lines and signs of aging. That’s why it is imperative to have a few tricks in your bag as soon as the first few chilly days of the season appear.

A simple, natural approach to skincare is best when forming habits for maintaining healthy skin, and the experts at Perlier have crafted products whose formulas use the best, most nature-centric materials. Read on to discover our most valuable tips and products to tackle parched skin.

Make water your best friend. Of course, everyone understands that water is important. After all, it’s vital for survival. But it’s common for many people to not drink enough water every day, simply because it’s easy to lose track of. Get a water bottle that measures the amount of ounces you put in it (the bigger the better, so that you only have to fill it up a few times a day; we like a 32-ounce bottle), and drink at least 64 ounces per day—or more if your skin feels particularly dry, you’re outside in the elements a lot, or you workout and sweat often.

Moisturize consistently. “Consistently” is the key word, here. Daily moisturizing will keep your skin looking and feeling fresh and quenched. Our Hydro-Zone Smart Moisturizing Face Cream is enriched with hyaluronic acid and floral micro-waxes that help capture and maintain moisture. It revives dull, dry skin and optimizes the elasticity, providing a sense of vitality, smoothness, and freshness.

Protect your skin. Moisturizers are a good long game, but for particularly cold, sunny, windy, or dry days and seasons, more protection is necessary. Perlier’s Hydro-Zone Barrier Balm creates a shield-like effect on the skin that protects against the climate. It acts as a coat for dry or sensitive skin, locking in moisture in even the most intense environmental conditions. Our Hydro-Zone Oxygen Smart Moisturizing Serum is another key to radiant, younger-looking skin. It provides “active oxygen,” which awakens the skin and gives it a brighter, healthier glow by retaining moisture more effectively.

Eat nutrient-rich foods. They say you are what you eat. Foods with omega-3 fatty acids (think: salmon, walnuts, and spinach) and healthy fats (such as avocado and olives) can actually provide natural oils for your body to use when it isn’t able to keep up with harsh conditions on the skin. A diet that routinely utilizes these food items will help keep your skin supple, moisturized, and healthy.
