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.
