Cold is a stress factor for our skin. Therefore, it requires special care during the winter period, writes The Health Site.

It is reported that many women continue to use their usual skincare products in winter. However, this should not be done.


In the cold season, when the skin quickly becomes irritated, it is necessary to avoid toners with a high alcohol content. This is because they dry out the skin.

Over time, such products can weaken the skin's natural barrier and make it more vulnerable to environmental factors.

Facial mask

Beauty facial masks can also harm the skin in the cold season. If you love clay masks, use them less often or avoid them altogether in winter.


You can use exfoliators in winter, but it should be done carefully. This is because excessive exfoliation can damage the skin barrier.


If you have dry skin, face powder will only further dry it out. If your face tends to get oily, apply powder lightly to set your makeup.


Experts recommend using more resistant products, namely waterproof mascara, for eye makeup. An ideal option is a thermal mascara that is removed only with warm water.


In winter, lip care is especially important. It's worth avoiding lip gloss as it contains a lot of moisture, which looks bad at low temperatures. The best option is creamy lip balms.

Fragrances and Essential Oils

Avoid using scented soaps, moisturizing creams, serums, or any other cosmetic products with a strong scent in winter. Dry skin is more likely to react to irritants.
