It is becoming colder by the minute and the cold, dry air can lead to dry, irritated skin even if you are prone to oily skin. Here are some ideas to keep your skin more hydrated this fall and winter season!
1. Switch up your skin care products! // Switch from foaming cleansers to milk, cream, or oil cleansers. I've been using La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, but not greasy! It can be used with or without rinsing, but I prefer to rinse it off. As for moisturizers, try a richer cream or balm. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Riche Soothing Protective Cream works great for me and doesn't cause any breakouts. I also like to use La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repairing Balm on any areas that are especially dry.
2. Increase your intake of healthy fats. // Eat foods such as avocado, salmon, walnuts, and olive oil or take omega-3 supplements. Healthy fats and omega-3s can help boost your skin's hydration level and decrease inflammation.
