Are you in love with the winter season? The cool temperatures, the crisp smell of the air, and the delicate fluttering of the falling snow make it hard not to love winter! But with the winter also comes frigid air that chaps skin and lips, indoor heating and electric panels that chaff and zap moisture from your skin, and the overuse of moisturizers.
Our founder, Athena Klee, shares: "When I first arrived in Canada, I remember my skin being so dry, chapped, and irritated from the cold Quebec winter! My solution was to use so much moisturizer that my skin was dull and without a glow. I vowed never to let my skin be in that condition again."
Team TRIXSENT hears you and feels your pain! We answer so many questions about how to transition beauty routines from season to season that we needed to put together a simple-to-follow self-care routine that would benefit all. Take heed of these steps, watch your skin blossom, and free yourself from seasonal itchy, blotchy, dry skin and dandruff!The best way to keep ahead of the dry winter season is to:
- Regular gentle exfoliating with a chemical exfoliant
- Generous application of balms to soothe and repair chapped lips
- Maintain oil balance for healthy and nourished skin
- Moisturize daily in and out of the shower
- Hair and scalp maintenance to deter dandruff
- Use only nourishing soaps with natural oils
Team TRIXSENT breaks down the six basic musts for creating and maintaining healthy winter-season skin.
Start with the Bare Minimum - Exfoliation
Now is a great time to work consistent exfoliating into your skincare routine. This gentle scrubbing removes dead skin cells revealing the fresh, supple skin behind. We recommend against a gritty facial scrub and switching to a chemical exfoliant. Abrasive scrubs damage the skin and can make it feel tender, reddish and blotchy in appearance, and who needs that? Using an exfoliator routinely helps the skin absorb moisture and TRIXSENT serums more efficiently.
Keep Balms on Hand
Thicker than moisturizers, balms seal in your skin’s natural moisture, are particularly effective in cold and dry climates, and add an excellent protective layer for those who enjoy the outdoors. Heal those dry, chapped lips with lip balm and do not be afraid to re-apply as necessary! Lip balms come in many flavours, textures, and colours. You never have to worry about being without your favourite moisturizer again!
Add the Good Oils to Your Skin
Face and body oils penetrate deep into the skin, delivering healing ingredients to dry, chapped, and inflamed skin. Find one with Tea Tree Oil - a readily available and affordable option that doubles as an anti-inflammatory and anti-blemish moisturizer. The oils most closely mimic our skin’s natural oils: coconut, sunflower, and grapeseed. All absorb quickly without leaving the skin greasy because that is the last thing you want.
Keeping Up with the Moisturizing - Do It Daily!
Keeping your skin hydrated is crucial in the dry winter months. Choose moisturizing products with gentle, natural ingredients that hydrate and soothe skin, as those with added colour and fragrance tend to irritate dry skin. An in-shower body lotion may be the perfect solution to hydrate while the skin is most receptive. Additionally, lotions are suitable to use after shaving and on dry skin as they are massaged into the skin after washing.
Getting all the Tingles - Hair & Scalp
An easy rule of thumb is to shampoo less in the winter and use lukewarm water. This change-up from your fall routine will keep your hair and scalp from drying out quickly. If you are prone to an itchy scalp or dandruff, choose shampoos and conditioners formulated with healthy, nutrient-rich ingredients for extra-dry skin. To further prevent itching and flaking, use a deep moisturizing conditioner twice a month to keep hair and scalp hydrated and healthy.
The Magic is in the Bubbles - Body Soap
When choosing a body wash or bar soap, find one that detoxes and restores your skin’s health with the cleanest ingredients and the least amount of irritants. Good hydrating ingredients are essential for beautiful skin, so look for soaps and washes that contain nourishing ingredients like Vitamin C, Shea Butter, coconut oil or cocoa butter. Your skin will get the hydration, nourishment and skin-softening results it craves. Avoid heavily fragranced or sudsy products as they contain harsh ingredients that only serve to exacerbate dry skin and could cause unsightly reactions.
