How to Protect Yourself from UV Damage

While snow may be falling and clouds are covering up the sun, that does not mean the sun cannot damage your skin. At Hale Cosmeceuticals, our priority is protecting and nourishing your skin however we can. This January, we’re sharing winter skin tips to protect yourself from UV ray, even if it may not be a sunny day outside!

Why You Need to Protect Your Skin in the Winter

It may be hard to believe, but your skin is actually more at risk for damage in the winter months. Because your face endures whipping winds, freezing cold, and dry winter air, the moisture barrier is less effective. This leaves our skin more vulnerable to SPF damage.

How to Protect Your Winter Skin

With Hale Cosmeceuticals, you can protect your skin from the damaging effects of winter weather and sunshine. We recommend the following:

  • Choose a hyaluronic acid or lactic-acid based moisturizer. Our Dermist M3HA moisturizer contains pure hyaluronic acid, giving your skin’s moisture barrier the protection it needs.
  • Cover up your scalp and skin. Remember to wear a hat and a scarf to minimize sun exposure!
  • Always remember to wear sunscreen. 
  • Hydrate! Drinking lots of water and keeping skin hydrated with the right moisturizer can keep your skin from suffering the damaging effects of winter weather.

While you may not end up with a summer sunburn (though, in higher altitudes, you might), your skin will likely endure damage if it is not properly protected. Because major damage is a cumulative effect, you may not notice if your skin is suffering.

Shield and Repair

Protection is essential, but it is also important to repair those damaged cells! Invest in a serum or gentle moisturizer that is specifically designed to repair sun damage. Awe recommend our C-Fine 5% Vitamin C Milk Lotion, which uses the potent power of vitamin C to stimulate collagen cells to rebuild, while also delivering deep nourishment.

And finally – repeat, repeat, repeat. Treat skin to the nourishing care and sun protection it needs every single day! And yes, umbrellas count.

This January, our C-Fine 5% Vitamin C Milk Lotion is 20% off! Contact us today to order yours.
