The fall and winter months bring cold, dry weather, which can have a real impact on your skin. Many people experience increased dryness and irritation, particularly those who already struggle with sensitivity. Revamping your skin care regimen during these months provides relief while also making sure your skin is as soft and supple as ever.
Humidifiers infuse indoor air with much needed moisture. In addition to the effects of dry outside air, inside air can also feel dry when using your home heating system every day. Humidifiers are particularly beneficial in the bedroom, so you wake up feeling refreshed and comfortable.
Much like your skin, your lips can also become dry and uncomfortable as temperatures drop. Look for lip balms with hydrating ingredients, such as shea butter, peppermint oil, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid, which is very good at retaining water and lubricating the skin/lips. Once you find a good brand of lip balm, buy a few tubes and place one in your purse or backpack, one at home, one at work, and one in your car.
After spending the day outside in cold weather, the first thing you want to do is jump in a hot shower. However, hot water will only dry out your skin more, which is why warm showers are preferred this time of year. Using moisturizer formulated to your specific skin type after showering is recommended, as it will create a protective barrier against dryness.
Lotions are light and airy, making them idea for hot weather months. When winter rolls around, cream moisturizers are preferred since they hold moisture in the skin instead of allowing it to dissipate in the dry, drafty air. In addition to moisturizing your face, don’t forget to protect your hands against cracking and redness. Take hand cream with you during the day so you can treat dry skin when it occurs.
