Cold weather skin care: great products to add to your routine to avoid skin freakouts

Suddenly it’s getting to be colder outside, and your skin isn’t happy! Avoid the dryness and complications by switching up your product routine. For this month’s tip of the week, I want to cover cold weather skin care. These tips will help your skin looks as luminous and healthy as if it were the middle of spring!


What to remember about cold weather and your skin:

  • These changes occur every year, so think a week or two before about what you might need.
  • Remember that winter weather, even in rainy Seattle, is generally drier because most of us are indoors more with central heating. This makes your skin drier. Drier skin is more easily irritated and looks dull. So how do you avoid that? Glad you asked!

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
