Is your skin starting to feel a bit dry, tight, and dull? In the winter months, your skin is more susceptible to dryness and irritation due to lower temperatures and less humidity. From flakiness to cracks, rough patches, and redness, there are lots of ways that the changing seasons can affect our skin. Fortunately, at Brampton Cosmetic Surgery Center & Medical Spa, we have plenty of tips, products, and treatments to help you deal with these skin concerns.

1.     Don’t strip the skin, cleanse lightly.

If you find yourself taking long, hot showers or baths during the winter months, consider switching to lukewarm water instead. Hot water strips moisture from the body too quickly and can cause irritation to already-dry skin.

When you’re cleaning your face, avoid scrubbing too hard or using drying soaps and products with harsh chemicals. Your winter skin is likely already dry and sensitive, so treat it gently. Choose a gentler cleanser that won’t strip the natural oils from your skin, like the ZO Hydrating Cleanser from Brampton Cosmetic Clinic. This cleanser is made for normal skin, dry skin, and sensitive skin, and helps to ease dryness and irritation.

2.     Hydrate from the outside in.

Water is the ultimate hydrator, and as winter winds down, it’s important to stay hydrated from the inside out. This includes drinking plenty of water every day. If you find yourself feeling thirsty, chances are you need to drink more water! You can also add more fruits and vegetables into your diet, as they will naturally help boost your hydration levels. Another easy tip: if you live somewhere that gets cold during the winter months, invest in a humidifier.

3.     Don’t forget your sunscreen.

The sun can still cause skin damage during winter, so don’t neglect applying sunscreen every day. Apply it 30 minutes before going outside, even if the sun isn’t shining. Use an SPF moisturizer daily and/or makeup with built-in sun protection to protect your skin from harmful UV rays that penetrate clouds and windows alike. The TiZo3 Primer/Sunscreen Tinted SPF 40 is the perfect tinted facial mineral sunscreen to use alone or under makeup for powerful sun protection with a matte finish. Brampton Cosmetic offers many different SPF moisturizers, mineral sunscreens, tinted sunscreens, and makeup with sun protection, including the TikTok favourite range of EltaMD products.

4.     Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

To lock in as much moisture as possible, you’ll want to start applying your toner, serums, and moisturizer right after cleansing, while your skin is still wet. This will help keep your skin hydrated and protect against environmental damage. If you’re experiencing severely dry, red, irritated skin, try the ZO Hydrating Crème with Colloidal Oatmeal, which provides fast-acting skin soothing benefits.


5.     Don’t forget the lips!

With temperature changes and dry, cold weather, lips can become very dry, irritated, flaky, and red. can Make sure to apply lip balm with SPF frequently during the day and try a hydrating lip treatment at night. You can also apply a lip scrub like the glo Skin Beauty Smoothing Lip Polish to polish away flaky skin for smooth, plump, soft, hydrated lips.

6.     Take extra care of dry skin, sensitive skin, and rosacea.

If you have dry skin, rosacea, or sensitive skin, it’s important to take extra care of your skin during the winter months. These types of skin can become irritated by harsh, cold, and windy weather.
