In the winter, your skin tends to dry out and look red, especially around the nose. The wind and cold air can be harsh on the skin, so we need to seal moisture into the skin in order to keep it healthy. Using too many products can exacerbate redness and irritation, therefore a minimalistic skincare routine is definitely the way to go! These are some of the products that have helped my sensitive skin the most.
- The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Niacinamide gently fades acne marks and reduces congestion. I have sensitive skin, and this product definitely evened out my skin tone without making my skin feel dry or tight.
- Skinceuticals Discoloration Defense
This product is a bit pricey, but it is so worth it. While niacinamide will fade discoloration within weeks to a few months, this fades them within a single week.
- Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is very soothing and anti-inflammatory, which can help lessen redness that is associated with hyperpigmentation.
- Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean yet hydrated. It doesn’t feel like it is stripping my face of moisture as many cleansers do. Maintaining the skin’s pH level and moisture balance is essential for an even skin tone.
- CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream
This night cream really feels like it locks all the moisture into the skin. I recommend putting it on before you go to sleep, and when you wake up your skin will feel so hydrated.
