Skincare Know-How For Winter

Winter Skincare tips from Bee Good

With the onset of crisper, frostier mornings, harsher winds and a definite chill in the air, it’s vital that we wrap up warm with protective layers to keep ourselves healthy.

Our skin also needs protection, especially when we’re living and working in centrally heated homes, contrasting with harsh outdoor exposure.

Using a moisturiser morning and evening during winter is an essential part of keeping your skin healthy, hydrated and comfortable.

The science bit…

Everyone’s skin has a natural ‘acid mantle’ (also known as the hydrolipid film) that is a protective layer on the surface of the skin. It comprises a number of naturally occurring acids, water from perspiration in the sweat glands, sebum and other natural moisturising factors. These help to keep the skin balanced, soft and supple, protect against environmental elements and help to provide bacterial protection of the skin’s natural microbiome.

Unfortunately, the acid mantle is easily damaged by stresses on the skin. These can be everyday pollutants, the sun, heating and air conditioning, and the use of harsh detergent products with high alkaline formulas which can strip the skin. When the protective barrier is damaged or imbalanced, it becomes less effective, and the skin can often becomes more sensitised. Even washing with overly hot water can affect the skin’s delicate balance.

The easiest and best solution is to ensure that you maintain a good protective layer between you and the outside world.

Our moisturising top tips…

Moisturisers are specifically designed to act as a barrier to environmental stresses and varying climates, locking moisture in.

There are so many moisturisers available that it’s sometimes hard to know where to start, but when choosing one, look for the following:

  • Go as natural as possible – helps eliminate or reduce known skin sensitisers.
  • Take note of the weather – you may want to use a richer moisturiser in autumn/winter and scale it down when spring arrives.
  • Look for enriched ingredients – since water is such a primary element of our skin health, look for moisturisers with humectants (ingredients that draw and lock in water); and specific skin enhancements. eg, those rich in natural vitamins and essential fatty acids.
  • Know your skin– identifying your skin type will help with your moisturiser selection.
  • Apply a separate sunscreen on top of your daily moisturiser for protection against UVA & UVB rays and oxidation while outside. We always advise adding an SPF to your regime rather than buying a moisturiser that contains an SPF. This way, you ensure that you are regularly topping up your SPF throughout the day.

We have formulated our everyday moisturiser to give just the right balance of ingredients to hydrate and calm normal to combination skins without overdosing the skin’s acid mantle. It is easily absorbed and is a great base layer for makeup.

Try A Facial Oil

Nothing beats a facial oil to deliver a really powerful dose of rehydration when your skin feels very dry or dull. Massage a few drops into clean skin morning and night.
