Protect Against the Elements:
When you do go outside, it’s important to keep your skin covered and protected from cold winds. You should wear gloves and cover your face with a scarf and hat. Even though it is winter, it’s also important to put on sunscreen. Bright winter days and light bouncing off of snow can still cause sun damage.
Avoid Harsh Products:
You may need to use gentler products in the winter than you use in the summer. This means no soaps, lotions, or cleaners with fragrances and dyes, which are more likely to irritate dry skin. You’ll even want to avoid facial peels during this time of year; it’s better to wait until the humidity returns in the spring. Instead, try Mesoglow therapy. This therapy is not harsh on the skin, but offers antioxidant and antiaging benefits that can give you a glow, even when your skin is dry.
Moisturizers can help your skin maintain its softness and glow. When your skin is dried out, your wrinkles and fine lines can be even more apparent, so it’s important to use a gentle moisturizer at least once a day, especially after you shower or go outside.
You can also keep your skin glowing by drinking plenty of water. While plain water is best, hot teas and cocoa also help keep you hydrated in the winter months.
Use a Humidifier:
Humidifiers can help keep you comfortable throughout the winter months. They add moisture to the air that can keep your skin from getting itchy or red. Place a humidifier in your bedroom to help avoid dry skin, nose, and lips while you sleep.
For extra relaxation, try adding essential oils to your humidifier. These add a soft scent to the air that helps you feel like your home is a spa.
