Five Most Popular Questions About Facial Moisturizers in Winter

Winter is at its best! We receive a lot of inquiries about facial moisturizers for winter, so we decided to write a short blog post about it. We selected five of the most popular questions and provide answers to them.

Should a facial moisturizer be hydrating or nourishing during the cold season?

These two characteristics should not be divided. A good facial moisturizer both hydrates and nourishes. Generally, we use the term "nourishing" for moisturizers with a richer texture.

Does the texture of a facial moisturizer matter?

It's advisable to choose a facial moisturizer that feels better on your skin. Gel-like moisturizers provide slightly less moisture, but if the provided moisture is sufficient for your skin, we recommend using them in the mornings. For your evening routine, we recommend a moisturizer with a creamier and richer texture.

How long before going outside should facial moisturizer be applied?

We recommend applying facial moisturizer about 20-25 minutes before going outside to allow it to absorb.

After exposure to cold weather, my skin flakes. Which moisturizer would suit me?

  1. Choose a moisturizer with ingredients that intensely moisturize and nourish the skin. Our range includes the perfect iUNIK Beta Glucan Daily Moisture facial moisturizer. The moisturizer helps with dry and dehydrated skin, has a soothing effect, and reduces flakiness. It actively moisturizes the skin, penetrates deep into the epidermis, and also forms a special barrier on the skin's surface to prevent moisture evaporation and dryness.

  2. Moisturize your skin throughout the day: Drink plenty of water, use facial mists, and indoors, use a humidifier.
  3. Use moisturizing facial masks 2-3 times a week (sheet masks, creamy masks, etc.).

Should SPF protection be used in winter?

YES! Remember to always use SPF protection in the last step of your skincare routine.
