Winter Skincare Myths : Debunking Common Misconceptions with Rju

Winter Skincare Myths : Debunking Common Misconceptions with Rju

Posted by Rju Care on

As the winter chill sets in, it's not just our closets that need a makeover. Our skincare routines also demand a revamp to shield against the harsh winter woes. But before you dive into the seasonal switch-up, let's unravel some common skincare myths that could complicate the transition. Stay tuned for our guide to winter skincare with Rju!

Myth: Thicker creams guarantee superior hydration.

Fact: Don't mistake thickness for ultimate hydration. Excessive lipids can trap dead skin cells, resulting in a dull complexion. Layer a serum beneath your cream to supercharge hydration. Despite their lightweight feel, serums are ultra-concentrated and swiftly penetrate the skin.

Experience the indulgence of our Jeju Radiance Night Cream in your winter skincare routine. This opulent cream offers overnight hydration while diminishing pigmentation, unveiling a luminous complexion. Enriched with the goodness of Jeju Island, including Hallabong Oil, Jeju White Blossom, and Jeju Hydrangea, it deeply nourishes your skin, fades dark spots, evens out skin tone, and imparts a radiant glow by morning.

The Jeju Radiance Night Serum leverages the revitalizing potential of Jeju Island's ingredients, perfect for your winter skincare routine. With its silky texture, it promotes collagen production, resulting in a radiant, luminous complexion. Jeju Jori's antioxidants defend and brighten the skin, while Hydrangea's natural properties combat inflammation and ageing.

The Jeju Radiance Night Cream and Serum are clinically proven to increase skin brightness and hydration within 4 weeks of use.*

*Disclaimer: Based on 12 weeks clinical study conducted on 36 subjects.

Myth: Cloudy days are a sunscreen break.

Fact: With the ozone layer thinning, those UVB rays mean business year-round. Plus, clouds won't shield you from sneaky UVA rays. That's why we recommend a daily sunscreen with broad-spectrum SPF 15 or more for protection and hydration. Use our Jeju Radiance Sunscreen to get the perfect glow on a cloudy winter day.

Formulated with natural ingredients sourced from Jeju Island, our Jeju Radiance Sunscreen creates a protective barrier against harsh winter elements and damaging UV rays, featuring SPF 40 with a PA++++ rating. Its velvety texture not only shields but also subtly reduces blemishes and dark spots, revealing a beautifully even and radiant complexion. Wrap your skin in the radiant glow of the Jeju Radiance Sunscreen, a cherished treasure from our Jeju collection, for winter-ready, protected skin.

Myth: Exfoliating during winter worsens dry patches.

Fact: Ever noticed how dry skin can build up and look even worse if left untouched? Your skin sheds dead cells for a reason, so don't resist it. Gently exfoliating helps remove those flakes, leaving your skin smoother and brighter. Plus, it can prevent acne by keeping pores clean and clear. Dead skin cells can make your complexion look dull, but regular exfoliation can restore its radiance and even tone, especially during the winter months.

Myth: Hot showers hydrate dry skin.

Fact: While it's tempting to soak in a steamy shower during winter, hot water can actually strip your skin of moisture. The heat causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to increased water loss from the skin. To protect your skin, limit your shower to under five minutes and use a soap-free body wash for a gentler cleanse. Include our Ultimate Nile Body Wash in your body care regimen for the perfect skin during winters.

Indulge in the lavish creaminess of the Nile Deep Hydrate Body Wash, leaving your skin incredibly soft, supple, and more elastic. Infused with precious elements from the verdant Nile River Basin, this body wash not only deeply cleanses but also rejuvenates dry skin, ensuring profound moisture and restoring your skin's inherent elasticity.

Myth: Blaming indoor heating for winter dryness.

Fact: It's not solely the heat, but the humidity level in the air that matters. Cold air inherently holds less moisture, and when heated indoors, it doesn't increase humidity. This leads to drier air inside, causing faster water evaporation from your skin.

Myth: Exposure to fresh air gives your skin a healthy glow.

Fact: That rosy tint might not be as healthy as it seems. It could be a sign of broken capillaries caused by harsh winds, potentially leading to permanent redness or rosacea. Protect your skin with a barrier moisturizer and a scarf. If windburn happens, soothe it with a gentle cream cleanser and a moisturizing balm.

Experience the soothing and detoxifying benefits of our Gangotri Purifying Cleanser, specially formulated for winter skincare. From the very first wash, this cleanser gently purifies your skin, thanks to its meticulously selected natural ingredients from the pristine Gangotri Glacier region. It combats dullness, cleanses oily and acne-prone skin, clears pores, and reduces breakouts, enhancing your skin's tone and texture in the harsh winter months.

Myth: Oily skin doesn't need moisturizer.

Fact: In the chilly, dry seasons, all skin types, including oily, need extra protection. Without proper moisturization, your skin's protective barrier weakens, making it vulnerable to pollutants and damage. Surprisingly, inadequate moisturizing can lead to increased natural oil production, potentially causing breakouts. So, remember, every skin type benefits from the right moisturizer, especially during the cold months. Include the Nile’s Rejuvenating Day cream in your skincare routine.

This day cream is a rich source of moisturizing goodness, ensuring your skin stays hydrated and supple throughout the day. Formulated with nourishing components like Nilotica Shea Butter and African Sesame Seed oil, it not only replenishes your skin's moisture but also enhances skin tone, elasticity, and collagen production.

Myth: Lip balm is a winter must-have.

Fact: Don't be fooled by the common belief that you need lip balm all winter long. While it's true that colder weather can lead to drier lips, it's not an absolute necessity. Lip balm addiction is more about the comfort it provides in chilly conditions.
