Winter Care for Dark Spots: Night Skin Fade Away Cream
It’s that time of year again! As the weather gets colder, our skin gets drier and is more sensitive to cracking and drying. A moisturizing and nourishing skin cream is absolutely essential for the winter months, regardless of your skin type.
For those suffering from dark spots, this is the time to start incorporating a night skin cream into your daily routine. A night skin cream, like Porcelana’s Dark Spot Corrector plus Moisturizer, fights hyperpigmentation while moisturizing the skin at the same time. The avocado extracts contained in this fade away cream provide extra moisture to naturally soothe and treat your skin all winter long.
Here are some other helpful winter skin care tips to supplement your new night skin cream beauty regimen:
Switch from Lotions to Night Skin Cream
Not only does your facial skin need an extra moisture boost right now, but the rest of your body requires extra hydration as well. Make the switch from lotions to creams from head to toe and start feeling the difference within a matter of hours.
Practice Gentle Exfoliation
Although you should generally avoid harsh cleansers and exfoliators during the dry winter months, it’s still important to scrub away dead skin cells to make room for new skin to grow and thrive. Exfoliating provides a clean base for your night skin cream to provide maximum moisture. Exfoliators that contain honey are great for the winter season.
Apply Hydrating Skin Masks
Face masks are a great addition to your night skin cream and a great way to restore moisture to skin in the winter. Skip the harsh peels during the winter, and opt for “deep hydrating” masks instead of clay-based ones, which tend to soak up skin moisture. Overnight masks are also wonderful for drawing moisture to your skin as you sleep. You will wake up with a glowing complexion.
Eat Healthy Omega-3 Fatty Acids
What you put in your body is just as important as the products you apply to its surface. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a good start, but don’t forget the omega-3s! If you suffer from chronically dry skin, it could actually be a sign of an omega-3 deficiency. This is the fatty acid that keeps your skin hydrated and prevents the formation of wrinkles. Salmon, mackerel, flax seeds, and chia seeds are all great sources of omega-3s.
Drink More Water than Usual
To keep your skin hydrated all winter long, it makes sense that you’ll need to drink more water than usual. However, chugging down eight glasses a day is not so easy or appealing, especially when there’s a chill in the air. Swap out a glass or two with flavorful herbal tea for a hydrating warm-up. Organic aloe juice and mineral waters can also offer some variety to your H2O routine.
Use Essential Oils
Not only do essential oils smell good, but they also work wonders for your skin in a natural and organic way. Just a few drops before applying your night skin cream is all you need. These are some of the best nutrient-rich oils that promote healthy winter skin:
- Rosehip oil
- Baobab oil
- Jojoba oil
- Argan oil
- Chamomile oil
- Black currant oil
Continue Using Sunscreen
You might not be spending your free time at the beach these days, but your skin can still suffer from the damaging effects from the sun’s UV rays. Apply sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher every time you go out into the sunshine to protect yourself from burns and prevent dark spots and other skin discolorations from worsening. We recommend using Porcelana Day Skin Lightening Cream during the daytime because it contains sunscreen for all-day protection.
