- Long hot showers can strip away essential oils your body creates to keep your skin from drying out. Stick to shorter luke-warm showers when the weather starts to get colder.
- Not only should you continue drinking ample amounts of water but applying moisturizing products to damp skin helps seal that moisture into the skin. Eating foods high in water content can also help hydrate your skin.
Use A Protecting Serum
- Many serums contain hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to penetrate the layers of the skin. Serums should be used under your moisturizer to create added nourishment since skin tends to be dryer in cooler months.
- Continue wearing sunscreen! Winter sun can be just as damaging as the summer sun. The easiest way to do this is through an SPF-packed moisturizer.
Don’t Forget Your Lips
- In the winter exposure to the sun, wind, cold and dry air can contribute to chapped lips. The solution: apply a nice, thick lip balm before bed.
