Why Is It Important to Exfoliate in the Winter?

Why Is It Important to Exfoliate in the Winter?

Winter is an easy season to love. Cozy sweaters, crackling fireplaces and steaming hot chocolate are just a few of the things that make winter one of the most beloved times of the year for many people. Unfortunately, your skin probably doesn’t share your fondness for the cold winter months. Dry, harsh air sucks the moisture out of your skin and leaves it feeling rough and wrinkly. Exfoliating regularly is one of the best winter skin care tips you can follow. Here’s why it’s important to exfoliate in the winter.  

Remove Dead Skin Cells

Your skin needs help staying hydrated in the winter, so make sure you remove dead cells so your moisturizer can penetrate more deeply. If you don’t exfoliate, dead skin cells will soak up your moisturizer and won’t allow it to reach the live skin cells beneath. After you exfoliate the dead cells away, moisturize immediately to keep your newly exposed skin healthy and supple. Serums have smaller molecules than cream moisturizers, which means they are able to penetrate more deeply into your skin. Hyaluronic acid serum helps stimulate your body’s natural collagen production so it can retain moisture more effectively.

How To Exfoliate

If you aren’t sure how to exfoliate your face, follow these simple steps: 

  • Wash your face like normal
  • Gently apply exfoliating product to your face in small circles
  • Rinse product off with lukewarm water
  • Use a clean, soft towel to pat your face dry 

You don’t need to use harsh products to exfoliate your skin. In fact, vitamin C serum is a great product to use if you want a gentler form of exfoliation. You don’t need to rinse it off your face after you use it. Instead, just squeeze a drop or two onto your fingers and gently massage it into your skin.

Keep your face youthful and hydrated this winter by exfoliating as part of your winter morning routine. You’ll be amazed at how beautiful your skin can be all winter long if you regularly remove old, dry skin cells regularly.
