Winter Skin Tips Inside and Out
It is winter and cold, blustery dry air outside can leave your skin feeling and looking itchy, red, and irritated and indoor heat sources can zap moisture from the air. There are a lot of simple things we can do to keep our skin happy during the chilly winter months.
Use these tips for retaining your skin's natural moisture this harsh winter season:
Use a humidifier to maximize moisture: Using a humidifier in your home or office will add moisture to dry winter air and help keep your skin hydrated.
Limit your shower temperate and time: It can be tempting to take a long, steamy hot shower during the cold winter months, but your skin will love you a lot more with a 5- to 10-minute lukewarm shower.
Apply sunscreen, even on overcast days: On bright winter days, snow reflects the sun’s rays — up to 80 percent, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Frequently use moisturizer: Healthy skin can be maintained by moisturizing after cleansing to help replenish what has been lost.
Turn your thermostat down to avoid dryness: When it is cold outside one of our first instincts is to crank up the heat inside. Do your skin a favor and try setting your thermostat to a comfortable setting between 68 – 72 degrees.
