Winter-Proof Your Skin

Taking care of your skin should be a daily process but it is important to know how to care for your skin depending on the weather. On our side of town, skies are cloudy and rain has been making random appearances throughout. During the winter months, skin tends to become more dry with the cold winds and low temperatures.

Use body and face products with added moisture and make sure to stay hydrated  even if it is cold. Look for products that advertise “deep” or “intense” moisturizing and avoid alcohol-based toners or astringents, which can strip your skin of essential oils that help keep you moisturized. If you use facial masks every week, use them less often and avoid those that are clay-based as they tend to draw moisture out of the face.

And lastly, go shopping! Warm gloves help your hands remain moist as the cold weather can make them look cracked and can even make them become itchy and irritated. Before you go outside, slather a bit of hand cream before you put on your gloves.
