Winter skin myths you may be guilty of believing

by Kelli Parisian December 18, 2018

beauty myths and facts, best skincare products, organic, toxin-free
1. Myth - I must use cleansers that dry up the oils in my oily skin
One of the most common skincare mistakes is using products that dry out the skin when you have oily skin.
Drying the skin out causes our skin to produce even more oil in natural response. Use products that are gentle and balanced. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water!

2. Myth - My skin is oily, I don't need a moisturizer.
If you have oily skin, you might think: I need to cut down on the moisture. That’s a total beauty myth. Those with oily or acne-prone skin fear that moisturizing will only make it worse, so instead they use harsh products and cleansers to dry their skin out.
The fact is, everyone, regardless of skin type, can benefit from moisturizing their skin every day. It’s just about choosing the right one.

3. Myth - I don't need a Toner
One of the most important steps in a skincare routine and yet, most forgotten. Using a toner adjusts the pH of your skin back to normal—critical for keeping skin balanced and healthy.
It also removes any debris left on skin preparing it for moisturizing.
Tip: during the Winter, don’t use an astringent, use a toner. Skin needs soothing, not drying out during the Winter.

4. Myth -  I can use my day cream at night
There’s a reason skin-care brands sell both--Your skin is in its peak state of repair and rebuilding at night, with the majority of cell turnover and regeneration occurring when your body is in REM sleep. For this reason, you should apply products that help with this recovery stage at night.
Night creams are full of essential hydrating ingredients, such as peptides and essential oils (we love Evening Primrose oil) that help to soothe and repair the skin. Generally, they are thicker and more nourishing which is why they're meant for night time use.

5. Myth - Winter causes my skin to be dry -
Indoor heating is the cause behind dry winter skin and it's not so much the heat, as the amount of moisture in the air. Because warmer air (think warm and tropical) has the capacity to hold the most moisture, cold air naturally has a lower humidity – meaning that it carries little moisture.
When this cold, dry air is brought inside and you crank up the heat, you are increasing the temperature but not the moisture.
Even though you have the same levels of moisture inside as outside, it will be much drier in your home or office because now the warmer air can potentially hold more moisture, resulting in lower relative humidity and a faster water evaporation rate. Hello, static hair and dry skin!
Use a moisturizer that contains ingredients like plant oils, and hyaluronic acid -- a natural water binder. Think of hyaluronic acid as a sponge in your skin that holds on to moisture and keeps your face looking plump and dewy.
