Temperatures are dropping and winter is right around the corner. For some of us, it’s already here! Now is the perfect time for a check-in on our skincare routines because with winter comes different skin issues. The cold, dry air can zap skin of its moisture, drying it out and leaving it itchy, red, and irritated. The key to a winter skin care routine is hydration.
Tips to Retain Skin’s Moisture
There are some easy things you can do to make sure you are retaining the skin’s natural moisture throughout the day. Hot showers seem amazing in the cold but they are actually bad for you skin, drying it out. Try taking shorter, lukewarm showers or baths and use gentle soaps or shower gels. Use a body lotion or cream when you get out of the shower to lock in moisture. And while we know how important it is to stay hydrated in the summer, we don’t think about it as much in the cold. Make sure to drink enough water, even if you’re not thirsty. Finally, keep a lip balm with you all the time - chapped lips are no fun!
