The facial skin is very sensitive, so you can not use one and the same means throughout the year. Choose separate funds for each season, taking into account individual needs and skin type (dry, oily, normal or mixed).
For oily skin prone to acne, adaptation to change in the weather is especially important. Experts say that means that you used to remove greasy and preventing the sebum production in the summer, winter is already ineffective. Using "summer" cleaning agents in winter can cause dryness and irritation of the skin.
If you regularly use anti-acne
Acne: facial trouble
, Dermatologists recommend to stay away from products containing benzoyl peroxide, sulfuric acid and salicylic acid. Dry and cold weather usually increases drying effect of these components. Also be careful with retinoids - their use can lead to a noticeable flaking skin. If you use a detergent to remove acne, which dries the skin, in the winter time, change it to a lotion or cream to the same effect.
Dry and mature skin requires cleansing lotion containing no foaming or lathering ingredients. Lather produced by chemical detergents, the skin dries out even more. We also recommend to replace the cleansing lotions cleansing cream.

Dry cracked skin on the hands is an unpleasant feeling of tightness, and besides, show your age. Try to always carry with hand cream and use it before and after the exit to the street and into contact with water.
Using harsh soaps (such as antibacterial soaps, or containing a lot of colors and flavors) is appropriate in the summer and spring, but in the colder months you will have to move to a more gentle cleanser. Potent cleaning ingredients it needs deprive the skin of natural oils, and in the absence of normal moisture, they can only aggravate the situation. If you prefer squared soap, choose soap with moisturizing effect.
