The battle has started. Winter’s annual fight against your skin is always tough – the dry, cold air, and constant exposure to dry heated air can wreak havoc on our skin. But there are things you can do to win that fight. When you have oily skin, it can be confusing to determine the best ways to fight back. Let’s discuss how IG Beauty Facials and skin regimen tips can help you care for your oily skin this winter season.
The first way you can take care of your oily skin this winter is to book our Deep Cleansing facial. This facial cleanses deep into pores, exfoliates and treats the skin. Through this process and a variety of products and techniques, excess oil, blackheads, whiteheads, and sebum are cleansed from the skin. One of the reasons why this facial is excellent for those with oily skin is that even though excess oil is removed, the skin is still left with appropriate moisture to help you battle the winter season.
This brings us to our next tip to help you take care of your oily skin this winter. Make sure you’re using the correct moisturizer and hydrator. Many of our clients with oily skin tell us that they don’t moisturize because they don’t want to add any extra oil to their face. This can be problematic for your skin, especially in the winter. If you don’t moisturize, the skin can become dry in some places and produce even more oil. This can lead to breakouts and even oilier skin. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated using an oil-free hydrator that’s applied regularly. Typically, moisturizer should be applied once in the morning and hydrator once before bed. A thin layer is always enough.
Next, you should always ensure that you’re exfoliating your skin on a regular basis. This will help to remove excess oil and bacteria from your skin. It’s important to exfoliate even in winter months, although it should not be done on a daily basis. Using an exfoliator every day in the winter may dry out your skin, so speak to your skincare expert at IG Beauty to confirm the right skincare regimen for you.
Lastly, an important way to prevent excess oil from building up on your skin is to use oil-free makeup products. Makeup products that are not oil-free can potentially clog your pores, cause acne, and make your skin look even more oily. In some cases, essential oils can be used on the skin, but your makeup should never be oil based. If you need help choosing a makeup product that works with your skin, speak to the skincare experts at IG Beauty.
We hope you found these tips useful. Remember, to fight the battle against harsh winter weather, it’s important to maintain your skin with a proper skincare regimen that includes cleansing, facials, and products that work with your skin in the best ways possible.
