Leap Into Skincare Love


In addition to 2020 being a leap year, February is the month of love. Want to know how to love your skin and protect it from the bitter cold and nasty winds this Valentines Day? Your skin is the barrier that keeps water inside of your body, so when it is dry and cold, water evaporates off of the surface faster and easier. Humidifiers are a great way to add moisture back into your home, especially if you’re prone to blasting the heat.

During the harsh winter months, you may want to avoid really hot showers or baths. Water that is too hot can actually dehydrate your skin. If skin is not immediately moisturized right after a hot bath or shower, it can crack which can cause eczema or a dry winter itch. Look for products with hyaluronic acid like Dormer 211 creams and lotions to keep the barrier of your skin from losing water.

Loving your skin by using a moisturizer is vital for keeping it hydrated in the winter. Application of a very thick moisturizer as soon as you get out of the bath or shower will help keep your skin feeling nice and smooth. When your skin is dry in the winter, it’s important to use cream without fragrance, as those can also irritate the skin.

Some tips to keep in mind:

  • Carry a good effective hand and face cream with you
  • Wear lip balm
  • Wear gloves/mitts
  • Stay warm without cozying up to fireplace or other heat source

Do You Still Need to Moisturize Oily Skin?

When you have oily skin, the last thing you might think about is a moisturizer. After all, why would you add another product to your skin when you’re trying to reduce its oiliness? In reality, there are a whole host of benefits to using a daily moisturizer if your skin is oily or pimple-prone.

Here are some reasons why a moisturizer should be included in your skincare routine.

Oily Doesn’t Mean Hydrated

There’s a common misconception that if your skin is oily, it must be well-hydrated. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. So if you have oily skin and choose to dry out your skin further, you’ll experience seriously dehydrated skin which lead to issues such as inflammation, premature ageing, and even breakouts. Your body then responds to dry skin by making more oil, which clogs pores and leads to even more pimples. It’s a vicious cycle, but you can prevent it! Moisturizers improve our skin’s hydration by adding water to it, which in turn, will eventually lead to less oily skin.

Eases Side Effects of Acne Medication

When our skin won’t cooperate and we’re forced to use more aggressive forms of acne treatments, such as retinoids or benzoyl peroxide, it becomes even more important to moisturize your skin because these products are designed to dry out your skin. Worse yet, these treatment options are also known to cause flakiness, peeling, and inflammation, so a daily moisturizer is your best defence against these uncomfortable side effects.

Oil-Free Moisturizers

There are plenty of moisturizers on the market today that are made for oily skin. These moisturizers are oil-free and non-comedogenic, which means they won’t clog your pores. These specially-designed products typically include ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid. Be sure to review the ingredient list on your moisturizer to ensure you’re using one that is suited to your skin’s needs.

Dormer®211 offers a complete skincare line for all skin types, including an oil-free moisturizer. Visit our website today to learn more about our wide variety of products suited to specific skin types.
