It’s not enough to invest in a few skincare products and treatments and expect them to do their job year-round.
Even in Australia, where the seasons are relatively mild, the differences in temperature, humidity and weather conditions between the winter and summer are vast.
It’s important then to tailor your daily grooming routine to suit the season.
Between meetings you’re outside in the cold, with wind lashing against your face. Then very suddenly, you’re in the extreme warmth of your office or home, with internal heating turned up.
Much like a glass smashing when run beneath hot and cold water, the skin reacts strongly to these sudden changes in temperature, with fast evaporation of hydration from the skin’s surface. What’s more is that because we try to warm ourselves, we consume more hot drinks, such as coffee, replacing the hydrating qualities of water.
In the shower, we turn the temperature up high, which not only strips the skin of its moisture, but can lead to broken capillaries. It stands to reason then that men’s skin becomes dehydrated during winter.
Even for those who maintain a good home care regime, if you’re not using the right products, skin dries out very quickly. Signs of dehydrated skin include tightness, flaking and fine lines.
While the natural reaction to treating dry skin can be to apply additional layers of moisturiser, this can adversely have the effect of causing breakouts. Instead, it’s important to use men’s skincare products which contain hyaluronic acid.
An ingredient which our skin naturally produces, hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold 1000 times its own weight in water, meaning that it helps to hydrate your skin from the inside out.
This ingredient helps to create a barrier against the elements, rather than leaving it exposed. Many products in the Ultraceuticals range, such as replenishing mask is rich in vitamin B, contain hyaluronic acid.
