Experts Offer Ways To Keep Skin Radiant In Cold Weather

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)- Between the harsh weather outside and the blasting heat inside, your skin needs extra TLC during the colder months.

Winter weather affects our skin in different ways but dry skin is the most common cause of dry skin.

Experts say the cold winter air lacks humidity and dries up the natural oils in your skin causing it to lose moisture.

The experts at The Center for Optimal Health gave 6 News some quick pointers you can take to protect your dry or oily skin this season.

Dry Skin: You'll need a proper cleanser that won't dehydrate the skin. Then apply an age appropriate serum. Some serums offer anti-aging ingredients. Once these two products are applied, apply a proper moisturizer.

Oily Skin: You'll need a proper cleanser that won't dehydrate the skin. Then apply a serum that has salicylic acid and tea tree oil and anti-inflammatory agents. Once these products are applied, apply an active cream that will not lock in your skin's body oils.

No matter your skin care regiment experts recommend using moisturizers and lotion that contain sunscreen. If used early doctors say it can decrease the chance of skin cancer and slow down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin.
