Keeping your skin radiant year-round can be a struggle. If you find yourself battling to keep your skin soft, clear, and hydrated during the chilly months, don’t fret because we have the solution. Aidan James has been known as a top-notch Amherst NH spa for years. Here we take care of everything from skincare and facials to hair coloring and manicures. If your skin is craving better hydration, consider these common mistakes that can be drying out your face. 


Your Day and Night Moisturizer Should be Different

One of the most common mistakes is thinking that you only need one moisturizer. Unfortunately, using the same moisturizer for both day and night won’t cut it. Your skin needs different things at different times of the day. Instead, consider getting a daytime moisturizer that includes antioxidants and SPF. This will give your skin the boost and protection it needs to take on the day. Then use a thicker moisturizer at night before you go to bed. The goal of this is to replenish and hydrate your skin as you sleep. 


Wash Your Face First

Listen, we get it – you are super busy, and sometimes washing your face can be a hassle. However, even if it “doesn’t feel dirty,” it is. When you put moisturizer on your dirty skin it can do more harm than good. Moisturizer is designed to protect your skin from bacteria while keeping in moisture, by creating a barrier. However, when you put it over dirty skin you trap in all of the dirt. Instead, moisturize right after washing your face so that you know you have a clean canvas.

What About Your Neck? 

When it comes to moisturizing, many often forget that your neck is just as important as your face! This is especially true for your morning moisturizer. Staying consistent and using your daytime moisturizer on your neck will help to protect your skin from sun damage and keep it hydrated! 


Be Patient and Consistent

As much as we would love to give you the answer to perfect skin overnight, it doesn’t happen that quickly. The most important thing when it comes to your skincare is continued patience and consistency. Continue to take care of your skin and make it a priority and over time you will see drastic improvements!
