I’m always reminded by the familiar sting of dry skin how important it is to change up my skincare routine when the temperature drops. The cold can bring about all sorts of trouble – sniffles, colds, and dry, scaly skin.
Check out our easy tips on how to keep your skin healthy and glowing even through the autumn and winter chill.
This is one of my favorite tricks to taking better care of my skin in the winter. When the air gets cold and dry, my hands are the first to feel the effects. My tip is to carry around a travel sized lotion with you and remember to wear gloves. Your hands have the thinnest skin so they damage the fastest.
This might come as a surprise, but wearing sunscreen in the winter helps prevent sun damage too! Even though it doesn’t seem like the suns rays are out to get your skin, winter sun and the glare off the snow can still cause damage. We recommend to invest in an ecological product; since everything you apply to your skin is sucked right in. Be gentle to your body.
Use a humidifier
Using a humidifier in the home can help keep moisture in the air and prevent skin from drying out. Not sure what a humidifier is? It’s a device that increases moisture in a room, and by simply adding a few drops of essential oils can do wonders for your skin. Read more about essential oils here.
Drink more water
Getting plenty of water in during the day helps keep our skin moisturized and glowing. And it’s good for so many other reasons, so invest in a glass bottle and carry it around with you all day.
Remembering to exfoliate gently on a regular basis is important to keep your skin refreshed and able to soak up the moisture from lotions and oils.
