The winter season can be fun, especially when the snow comes out and sits on our rooftops. Sadly, winter can also come with a little discomfort, making your skin dry, with the heater adding its own effect by zapping moisture from your skin.

The good thing is you can fight back the effects of the harsh cold weather on the skin. Want to know more? Here are ways to look after your skin this winter.

Us CBD-based skin care products.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many naturally occurring compounds in the cannabis plant. Many ongoing and preliminary studies suggest that CBD may find application in relieving medical symptoms like anxiety, stress, inflammation, sleep disorders, and more.

While these claims may not have been proven, many users of CBD have claimed to have derived many benefits from using it, causing an increase in its adoption. 

The skin care industry is also not left out, as many beauty /skincare product manufacturers have rolled out CBD-based products with claims that the naturally occurring compound offers protective, rejuvenating, and skin conditioning benefits.

It is believed that CBD can interact with the skin’s receptors to promote the production of oils/moisture, which can make the skin maintain its healthy structure and function.

If you want to care for your skin this winter, the OTO skin care range might be just what you need. With a blend of essential oil and Ayurvedic plant-based ingredients in their CBD skin care products, you’ll be equipped with all your skin needs to weather the coming winter.

Use a humidifier

During winter, outdoor air usually locks in less moisture and is colder. With a humidifier installed around the home and your office, you can tip the scales of nature in your favour as they can help restore moisture to the air in your immediate surroundings.

This way, your skin stays hydrated, avoiding cracks and breakdowns that can happen because of dehydration. To get the best outcome for your skin, use the humidifier to keep the humidity level around 30-50%.  A humidity meter can in handy in this regard.

Avoid turning up the heat too high.

The winter cold can make you want to turn up the temperatures of the rooms. This move might not be a good idea as high temperatures can make room and your skin moisture evaporate, making your immediate environment and skin even drier.

You can keep the temperature around 68 to 75 °F. This tip is also applicable to showers and hot baths, as you’ll do well to keep your shower at a lukewarm temperature

Invest in moisturizing/hydrating products.

The skincare product you use for the summer may not do your skin good in winter, so it’s best to opt for skincare solutions that help the skin produce and retain more oil and moisture.

Tons of products in the market promise to promote skin hydration. Just to be sure, you should look out for products with humectants, occlusives, and emollients. All three works together to promote healthy, hydrated skin.
