If you have sensitive skin, winter weather can be detrimental to your complexion. Once coldĀ air rushes in, the moisture leaves your face and can make it challenging for you to maintain your dewy appearance. However, you don’t have to let the seasons rule your face. Even if you have sensitive skin that has little tolerance for fragrant, ingredient-packed moisturizers, there are a couple of ways you can keep it silky smooth.

Avoid lotions with preservative ingredients
The Telegraph reports that moisturizers that include preservatives such as paraben can be incredibly irritating to sensitive skin, especially when used around areas such as the eyes. To keep your winter skincare problems from becoming worse, avoid these products.

Exfoliate regularly
Time magazine recommends utilizing an exfoliant containing lactic acid, which is gentle on the skin and can eliminate dead cells. In general, exfoliating can maintain your youthful glow and make it easier for your skin to absorb moisturizers.

Find the proper lotion for you
Before you buy a lotion, make sure to read the label. Most products will tell you whether they’re suited for sensitive skin types, which can help you in the battle against winter.

Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
