Winter Skin Care Tips: Why Is My Skin Dry And Flaky In Winter?

It’s no surprise that for a lot of people, winter ranks as their least favourite time of the year – and for good reason! As freezing temperatures and perpetual darkness roll in  – it’s not just us who are feeling the effects of winter, but our skin is too. With an increase in search queries for questions such as ‘Why is my skin dry and flaky in winter’, there’s no denying that the winter months wreak havoc on our skin. But how can you combat winter skin this season, and can skin boosters like Seventy Hyal 2000 play a part in this?

Why Is My Skin Dry And Flaky In Winter?

If you’re on the search for a winter glow-up, understanding the reasons behind your skin’s winter struggles is key. It’s no secret – winter can be detrimental for our skin health, and escaping its clutches can feel like a challenge.

As the temperature falls, our thermostats rise in a bid to transform our living spaces into cosy sanctuaries. A win for defrosting our homes, but an unfortunate setback for our skin. These conditions are often the culprits behind the mystery of our dry and flaky skin, robbing it of that cherished radiant and rejuvenated glow. The cold, blustery weather outside leaves our skin looking and feeling red and raw, while indoor heating steals moisture from the air and our skin – it’s like we can’t ever win where winter is involved. Even if you have oily or combination skin, you’re not off the hook. These conditions can leave your skin feeling dry and flaky, sensitive, red, dehydrated, and just overall uncomfortable. However, tweaking your skincare routine and adding in the likes of skin boosters and heavy-duty skincare to match the season could be the secret to your post-winter glow-up. 

Winter Skincare Tips

While it may seem it, dry and flaky skin in winter isn’t always inevitable. By making some changes to your skin routine, treatments, and habits, you may be able to keep your skin looking fresh for the winter. Here are some of our top skincare switch-ups that are really worth weaving into your winter skincare routine:

Skin Boosters: Seventy Hyal 2000

Whilst summer calls for lightweight moisturisers and heavy-duty suncream, winter calls for more intensive skin hydration – beyond topical creams and serums. The drop in temperature and fluctuating humidity outside causes the air to become cold and dry, which results in the moisture on your skin evaporating and drying out and lacklustre-looking skin.

If you’re desperate to revive your skin’s glow, consider the benefits of injectable skin boosters this winter. Skin boosters like Seventy Hyal 2000 provide a surge of intensive hydration that we often can’t get from moisturisers alone as they aren’t able to reach the deeper skin layers. As they are injectable treatments, skin boosters often penetrate the skin a lot deeper to moisturise the deeper dermis for a stronger hydro-boost. Formulated with a high molecular weight of hyaluronic acid to offer long-lasting hydration, the Next Generation Skin Booster is a great option if you want your skin to remain rejuvenated even when the skies are grey. 

Seventy Hyal also aids in the bio-stimulation of collagen and elastin production to promote smoother and firmer-looking skin for a rejuvenated complexion. During the brisk winter months, there’s no doubt that many of us have busier schedules on the run-up to the festive period. Seventy Hyal allows you to skip that 6-step skincare routine in exchange for 45-minute treatment every 6-12 months, with long-lasting results!

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is a must year-round, but especially in the winter months. When the crisp air is fighting battles with your skin, staying hydrated is your best bet for a glowing complexion. We’ve always been influenced by health guides claiming that drinking water is the sole factor for feel-good skin, but it’s the truth. With winter contributing to skin dryness so prominently, it’s important to pay extra attention to how much water we drink, specifically during this period. Aside from injectable skincare and a myriad of skincare products, aim to drink six to eight cups of water to ensure optimum hydration throughout the day.

Heavy Duty Skincare

Whilst injectables like Seventy Hyal 2000 can treat dryness on a deeper level, it’s still important to give the surface of your skin some serious TLC. Keep in mind that your skin’s moisture barrier needs to be healthy in the first place to respond well to the likes of injectables etc. Heavy-duty skincare products like thicker moisturisers and intensive serums can often work wonders for preventing dry skin and revitalising your look.Consider switching to an oil-based moisturiser during the winter months, in addition to an overnight mask/treatment to help retain this moisture for longer.

Seek Professional Skincare Treatments

Winter can be particularly unkind to your skin, leaving it dull and dry, and this is where your skincare routine might need a boost. Beyond your standard six-step regimen, we highly recommend considering additional treatments like professional facials. These facials leverage a variety of methods and techniques to address your specific skin goals, effectively sloughing off dead skin and enhancing the absorption of topical skincare products. Having regular facials goes a long way in maintaining skin that’s not just clean and clear but also well-hydrated. Plus, the bonus is that it maximises the effectiveness of your everyday skincare routine. So, think of facials as the extra dose of TLC your skin deserves during the winter months, ensuring it stays radiant and nourished.

The Takeaway

Sure, winter may have its drawbacks, but let’s not forget the silver lining! Amidst the chilly days and frosty nights, there’s a whole list of festive fun and exciting events that many can look forward to. Consider this your motivation to give your skin the care it deserves and embrace the best version of yourself. With skin boosters like Seventy Hyal 2000 readily accessible in clinics nationwide, achieving that radiant glow is as simple as one syringe away! So, while winter brings its challenges, it also brings the perfect opportunity to pamper your skin in time for the season’s festivities.
