People often notice that their complexion appears drier and duller in winter—a result of the cold, dry air that causes moisture to evaporate faster than in warm, humid weather. This leaves skin more exposed, tight (not in a good way), and flaky. It also means dead skin is pilling up more so than it does in summer when you sweat it off naturally. To help you keep your skin healthy between your professional services like men’s facials, check out these strategies to remove dead skin.
3 Strategies to Remove Dead Skin
1. Use a Great Exfoliator
A skincare essential for winter is a great scrub. G.M. Collin® has a fabulous product that works wonders for your skin, and it’s super easy to use. Apply their Active Exfoliant Powder® in the shower or out, prior to shaving. Pour a dime-sized amount of the mixture into your palm and add an equal amount of water. Rub your palms together to activate the ingredients and apply in a circular motion all over the face for about one minute.
2. Book a Professional Facial
There's only so much one can do at home when it comes to combatting the impact of mother winter. Booking a facial or microdermabrasion session at your local spa is sure to deeply exfoliate your skin, and its effects will last for a month or more. In fact, just one treatment will also visibly smooth fine lines and small wrinkles. It also allows your skin to absorb moisturizers much more effectively.
3. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
We can’t stress this enough. As we said in the beginning, the cold winter air sucks humidity out of your skin quickly, and since it’s cold, your skin (especially on your face, which is most often not completely covered as you’re walking around outside) is really left to the elements. The most important thing to do is moisturize. Currently, we are loving this moisturizer from Dear, Klairs®, which you can pick up using that link on Amazon®. It’s amazing to use right after you exit the shower and apply a moisturizing serum or toner. It’s not oily at all, and we’ve been loving the way it makes our skin feel.
