Winter's chill brings with it a delightful season of festivities, but it also brings in the challenge of dry skin. The cold weather, coupled with indoor heating, can leave your skin craving hydration. Fear not, as we uncover the secrets to winter dry skin care, exploring the best solutions to keep your skin happy and moisturised throughout the season.
Understanding Winter Dry Skin
Winter's cold air has a unique ability to strip our skin of its natural moisture. The low humidity levels further aggravate the problem, leading to dryness, flakiness, and discomfort. With a focus on hydration, nourishment, and protection, FCL products are tailored to combat the adverse effects of the season.
Why do you need body lotion?
These hydrating heroes are formulated to lock in moisture and create a protective barrier against the elements. Look for lotions enriched with nourishing ingredients like squalene, shea butter, oat silk, milk protein, pre and probiotic or hyaluronic acid.
How to use body lotion?
Apply body lotion generously after your shower or bath when your skin is still slightly damp. This helps seal in moisture, leaving your skin feeling velvety soft. Choose a body lotion for winter that suits your skin's unique needs, whether it's intense hydration, soothing relief, or a combination of both.
Choosing the Best Moisturizer for Dry Winter Skin:
Pre + Probiotic Body Lotion: This ingredient offers natural healthy skin nutrition with probiotics as skin superfood. The probiotic skin nutrition helps in restoring the skin barrier and locking the moisture while acting as a protector.
Oat Silk and Shea Butter Body Lotion: Oatsilk also known as colloidal oatmeal is an all-natural skin soothing solution for eczema, bug bites, sunburns, poison ivy and other itchy and other inflamed skin conditions. When applied topically, colloidal oatmeal works by attracting moisture to the skin and locking it in by forming a protective barrier.
Shea butter’s unparalleled hydrating property is due to natural moisturisers that are chemically similar to those produced by the body’s own sebaceous glands. Shea butter also contains healthy fatty acids. Shea butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F. Vitamins A and E maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy. Vitamin F acts as a protector and rejuvenator soothing rough dry or chapped skin.
Milk Protein and Glycolic acid Body Lotion: Milk Protein contains a network of activated and stabilised signal molecules derived from milk which promote vitalization of the skin protection system. It is reported to be effective in regenerative care of stressed and ageing skin, for prevention of damage causing premature skin ageing and, at the same time, for enhancing an even pigmentation.
Glycolic Acid is used for exfoliation, effectively removing the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion, revealing brighter, fresher skin. 15% of Glycolic acid effectively removes the scaly flakes associated with certain skin disorders like scaly skin, atopic dermatitis, keratosis Pilaris etc.
Daily Habits for Winter Skin Care
Warm, Not Hot Showers: While a hot shower may seem tempting in the winter, it can actually contribute to dryness by stripping away the skin's natural oils. Opt for warm showers instead, and keep them short to prevent excessive moisture loss.
Humidify Your Indoor Space: Combat indoor heating's drying effects by using a humidifier. This simple addition can help maintain moisture levels in the air, preventing your skin from becoming too dry.
Clothing Choices Matter: When heading out into the winter wonderland, layering not only keeps you warm but also protects your skin. Harsh winds can strip away moisture, so wear a soft, breathable base layer to shield your skin from the elements.
