Dry skin in winter? Learn how to make them shine with these four skincare secrets!


Do you have dry skin in winter? Don’t worry, with these care secrets you can make them shine! Dry skin can have various causes, such as improper skin care, external factors or even certain illnesses. It is important to moisturize and care for your skin regularly. Also pay attention to your diet and drink enough water, even in winter, to support your skin from the inside out. In this article I will discuss the cause of dry skin that occurs in winter.

Why dry skin in winter?

Many people suffer from dry skin in winter. But why is that so? The causes of dry skin in winter are varied and can include both external and internal factors. Cold weather, low humidity and frequent switching between heated rooms and the cold outside can dry out the skin. A healthy diet with enough water and good skin care are therefore particularly important to relieve the symptoms of dry skin and regain a radiant appearance. In the next sections I will introduce you to some care secrets that you can use to optimally care for your dry skin in winter.

Causes of dry skin in winter

Dry skin in winter can be very annoying and many people suffer from this problem. But what are the causes of dry skin this time of year? There are various factors that can contribute to this.

  • On the one hand, the cold weather ensures that the air humidity is lower and therefore the moisture from the skin evaporates more quickly.
  • In addition, frequent showers or baths with hot water cause the skin’s natural oils to be removed, which can lead to dryness.
  • An improper diet can also have a negative effect on the skin. A lack of important nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E can lead to dry skin.
  • The warm winter clothing on the skin also causes friction on the skin.

As a result, the covered skin can retain less moisture and dries out more quickly.

  • In addition, certain diseases such as neurodermatitis or drug treatments can also lead to dry skin. In summer this is often compensated for by a humid climate and high temperatures; in winter the symptoms intensify because these conditions are no longer present.

It is important to know these causes in order to take targeted action against them. By caring for your skin properly and providing enough moisture, you can help it shine again.

Important care secrets for dry skin

To optimally care for your skin, you should first establish a moisturizing cleansing routine. The secret of active ingredient cosmetics lies in the purity of the ingredients and the absence of plasticizers such as parabens, PGEs and microplastics as well as drying preservatives. The skin is stimulated to develop into sustainably healthy skin.

The new generation of active ingredient cosmetics from BEAUTÉ OMAR is characterized by the high purity of the ingredients, as well as a combination of natural ingredients and scientifically proven active ingredients. As a special feature, the Seria Cutanoeus creams from BEAUTÉ OMAR contain the moisturizing South African Virgin Oil. With the long-chain fatty acids, it can penetrate into the deep layers of the skin and keeps it supple. With anti-inflammatory properties, it relieves redness and irritation of the skin.

Skin protection is very important for dry skin. The active ingredients help here:

  • the ceramides,
  • Vitamin E and
  • Dexpanthenol
  • Various natural oils such as coconut oil or shea butter

Intensive care is also provided by moisturizing creams and masks that have been specially developed for dry skin.

In addition, you should make sure to avoid certain care measures for skin that is stressed in winter, i.e. dry skin:

  • Showering or bathing that is too hot, as hot water removes the skin’s natural lipids and dries it out.
  • Exfoliating the skin too often. This can damage the skin’s protection, reduce natural oils on the skin and make the skin more susceptible to dry and itchy areas
  • Be careful when using products containing retinol
    and vitamin C. Use these in winter if you have dry skin, as these not only free the skin of dry skin cells, but also attack the skin protection if used too frequently

Note these important care secrets for dry skin and you can enjoy radiant and healthy skin despite the cold weather.

Tip 1: Moisturizing cleansing routine

When washing your face, use lukewarm water as hot water can strip the skin’s natural oils, increasing moisture loss. Gently massage the cleansing product onto your damp skin in circular movements and then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

Make sure that your cleaning product contains mild surfactants such as nourishing but also deep-cleansing coconut oil.

The body skin can be optimally supplied with a moisturizing shower gel, which is based on amino acids and mild surfactants. In addition to the mild surfactants, the Deep Cleansing Body Wash also contains coconut oil, which has ideal moisturizing properties without leaving an oily film on the skin.

Tip 2: Use the sandwich effect of serum and cream

After cleansing, you should care for your skin immediately to increase its moisture content. The effect of the care increases on the face if you first apply a serum and then, after a short exposure time, the face cream.

An example of this is the Hyaluron-4-Iconic Booster Serum. It has a hyaluronic acid content of more than 2.5% and contains 4 different hyaluronic acids. In addition, it contains an entire peptide complex that contains, among other things, the growth factors IGF and EGF. The serum is based on cucumber water, is absorbed very quickly into the different layers of the skin and thus really boosts the skin.

Then the Surgi Boost Face Cream, which also contains hyaluronic acid and peptides, but also many natural oils and active ingredients for skin protection such as ceramides and vitamin E.

The skin is cared for like a sandwich with top and day make-up can be easily worn over it because the products are so fine in texture.

But don’t forget the skin on your body! Here you can take a warm, not hot, bath in the evening and use an oil bath.

The oil bath that is still considered unbeatable today is the one from the pharmacy and from my childhood is called Balneum Hermal. Especially for very dry winter skin or neurodermatitis, this is indispensable in winter.

After the bath it is recommended to use a rich body cream. I advise against body lotion. It contains more water and fillers than helpful active ingredients.

The Surgi Boost Advanced Body Cream is very popular due to its soothing and deeply nourishing ingredients. In addition to shea butter, coconut oil and South African virgin oil, hyaluronic acid and dexpanthenol are other helpers for delicate skin. It also contains the Pepticomplex, which stimulates collagen synthesis. The skin becomes firmer and more resistant, which is especially needed for cortisone skin, parchment skin.

Tip 3: Peeling to remove dead skin cells

Another important tip for making dry skin shine again in winter is regular exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. By using a peeling, the top layer of the skin is gently removed, allowing new, fresh skin cells to form. This not only promotes a smoother and softer skin surface, but also allows for better moisture absorption. It helps prevent clogging of pores and removes excess sebum and dead skin cells. This minimizes the appearance of imperfections and allows the skin to breathe better. However, when peeling, you should use mild products without aggressive ingredients.

Above all, you should peel a maximum of every 7 to 10 days, otherwise the skin barrier on your face or body can be damaged. You should be careful with peelings, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Body peelings, for example, are very nice. These often use sea salt and an essential, highly nourishing oil that also soothes the skin. Molton Brown Eucalyptos Peeling is one of the finest peelings and body peelings from Rituals.

Tip 4: Moisturizing masks for intensive care

It’s Saturday evening and you want to give your face an extra boost for the night. Then, before applying make-up, use a moisturizing mask that infuses a cocktail of moisturizing ingredients into the skin. It’s the fresh kick that will secure you compliments on the night of the party and brighten the night with your radiance!

Conclusion: Radiant skin despite cold weather – no problem with these care secrets!

In this blog article we have already discussed the causes of dry skin in winter as well as important care tips. Now we would like to draw a conclusion and show you how you can maintain radiant skin despite the cold weather. A moisturizing cleansing routine is essential to combat dry skin. Use active ingredient cosmetics such as those from BEAUTÉ OMAR, which contain the credo:

Nature meets Science! Use the power of nature and scientifically based ingredients!

Mild products without aggressive ingredients are the key to healthy skin. Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and improve moisture absorption. For intensive care, you should use moisturizing creams and masks. These provide your skin with sufficient moisture and keep it supple. You should also be careful to avoid showers or baths that are too hot, as this can weaken your skin’s natural moisture barrier. It is important to note that other factors such as illnesses or medications can also influence skin dryness. If symptoms or uncertainties persist, you should consult a doctor. Good health often begins with a balanced diet and adequate hydration. Even in winter, drink at least two liters of water a day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. You should also make sure to take adequate care of your entire body and not just your face. In conclusion, glowing skin is possible despite cold weather.
