Where did that cold weather come from?!? We are having a cold snap here in Texas and I wasn’t prepared for it to come so soon! I’m sure you weren’t either so as we prepare to bring out our “winter” clothes, let’s not forget about our winter skincare. As the temperatures cool off and the air gets drier your skin will definitely feel the effects. You will probably notice your skin become dry and patchy or it may even produce more oil in an attempt to hydrate itself. Our skin can tell us a lot if we listen to it. Changes in our skin just mean it’s doing the best it can to adjust. Be sure your home care can support the weather change this season, and don’t get too caught up if you see a blemish or two along the way.

Winter Skin Tips:
As seasons change so should your skincare. It doesn’t need a complete overhaul, adding in one or more of the products above will help your skin stay hydrated and minimize winter dryness, but your environment and lifestyle is another facet to consider. While many of us love a hot, steamy shower, including me! The heat from the shower can cause your skin to dry out. You will also want to make sure you are applying your moisturizer well before going out in air below 30 degrees. A few more things to consider would be avoiding pointing the heater in your car right at your face or even using a hot blow dryer near your skin as that can cause extra moisture to escape, when you know you know.
I know we don’t’ get many extreme cold winters here in texas so this next advice is for all of you who love skiing, even in those heavy winter states experiencing extreme temperatures anyt time you hit the snowy slopes don’t forget your SPF! SPF is a MUST when skiing since the UV rays are reflected off of the snow!
