Winter is possibly the worst season for skin health because it removes natural moisture from the skin and can lead to harder skin conditions.
Fortunately, an Australian skincare specialist has unveiled his top tricks for avoiding feared scaly skin in the winter and ensuring moist skin all season long.
From avoiding long and hot showers to using a humidifier, G & M Cosmetics & # 39; R&D chemist Dr. ir. Visay Viengkhou shared his five top tips.
A skin care specialist has revealed the best ways to take care of your skin in the winter
Avoid prolonged exposure to hot showers and heaters
Although hot showering and cranking, heating in the winter can be tempting, it is best to relax when exposed to heat.
& # 39; To keep the skin in top condition, it is recommended to have a lukewarm shower and sulphate-free body washes to prevent the body's natural oils from falling away, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; Heaters are mostly dry, it is recommended to keep the room at room temperature rather than too hot to prevent skin from drying out. & # 39;

Use the right skin products for the season
Dr. Viengkhou said it's just as important to boost your skin routine in the winter, because it's your wardrobe in the colder months.
& # 39; It is best to stay away from products that contain alcohols that can further dry out the skin and prevent its natural oils, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; A richer moisturizer also helps the skin prevent cracks and dehydration. & # 39;
Because the winter is mostly dry, it is important to retain the moisture in the air.
Dr. Viengkhou said that an easy way to do this is to use a humidifier at home and if you can, have a working one.
& # 39; It gently spreads moisture through the air, allowing the skin to absorb moisture and prevent excessive drying, & # 39; he said.

Invest in soft products
A harsh winter season requires gentle skin care products, because the change in climate seriously affects the overall health of your skin, leading to cracks and inflammation.
Dr Viengkhou has released the Dr V range, which contains a wide variety of soft products that are great for nourishing winter skin.
& # 39; The natural ingredients of the products are suitable for all skin types to get the benefits and prevent irritation, & he said.
& # 39; This helps people with eczema or sensitive skin take good care of their skin in the cooler months. & # 39;
Do not skip the awning
& # 39; The thought that summer is over can make people believe it is good to step back from the sunscreen; however, this is not the case, & he said.
& # 39; The winter sun can still cause damage to the face, especially if it experiences seasonal trauma. Sunscreen is also the most important block for premature aging. & # 39;
