As your summer glow fades, you may be wondering what your skin has in store for the next season. Unfortunately, the Chicagoland weather can be brutal for your skin and the easiest place to see the damage is your face. However, you can solve many common complexion concerns with a few changes in habits and expert assistance. Here’s the lowdown on how to get your complexion glowing no matter if it is summer or winter in Chicago.
Dry and Patchy Skin
Cold wind and dry conditions indoors can mean your skin bears the brunt of the elements. Dry skin is all too common here in Chicago, and it can mean itchy and dry patches all over your face and neck. Solve your dryness problems by committing to hydration on the inside and on the outside. Start by increasing your water intake and decreasing your intake of dehydrating beverages like coffee or alcohol. Sticking with water will hydrate your skin from the inside and give you a healthy glow. Beyond hydrating inside, you should also increase your moisturization game. Most people in Chicago change their moisturizer routine in the winter months to further decrease the opportunities for dryness to sneak in.
Red and Blotchy Skin
Do you have sensitive skin? Having reactions and inflammation is quite common, even for people who may not think their skin is sensitive. Nearly anything can cause a reaction unique to the person, including detergent to pollution. However, people may think they are just having a breakout without realizing it is due to sensitive skin. Talk to your dermatologist about your skin sensitivities and consider keeping a journal to determine what could be causing your red and blotchy breakouts.
