    Did the Groundhog see his shadow? What a longer winter could mean for your skin.

    As tradition goes, on February 2nd of every year in, Pennsylvania, the Groundhog exits his hole after a long winter and looks for his shadow. If our little groundhog sees his shadow, it is an omen of six more weeks of winter. However, if the day is cloudy and therefore without the ability to cast a shadow, the Groundhog will take it as a sign that spring is on its way and he should stay above ground.

    Alter your Skin Care Routine

    Winter weather is damaging to our delicate skin in more ways than we may imagine. From dry skin to wind blisters, our fine lines and wrinkles can become more visible and harder to treat. That is why Hale Cosmeceuticals recommends you alter your daily skin regimen to ward off the bad side effects of a long winter.

    Skin Care Tips

    During the winter months, cold air, wind and indoor heat can make your skin suffer. Here are a few tips from Hale Cosmeceuticals to help you keep your skin soft and supple all winter long:

    • Overhaul your routine. Ways to alter your skin care routine include taking shorter showers and using warm water, not hot as it can strip your skin of moisture. Use a body wash rather than a bar of soap and add a humidifier at night to not only help your skin, but your breathing.
    • Moisturizing your skin on a daily basis is very important, especially in winter. Try using our C-Fine Milk Lotion. It uses Vitamin C to help decrease lines and wrinkles while improving your skin's elasticity as you age.
    • Cover up. Protect your skin from the wind by dressing weather appropriate. That means hats, gloves, long sleeves and more! We also recommend applying sunscreen to any exposed areas of skin such as your face, the tops of ears and the back of your hands. Check out our Complexion Protection sunscreen. It is vegan, cruelty-free and comes with an SPF of 35.
    • Eat differently. Try avoiding caffeinated drinks like coffee and soda. These can cause you to use the restroom more, decreasing your fluids and cause dry skin. Substitute these drinks with more water and other fluids that are natural and non-diuretic.
