Winter weather is not fun for skin. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which then steals moisture away from the skin every second of every day.
To keep skin more healthy and comfortable, try these tips:
1- Wash in Lukewarm Water
Hot showers and baths always feel good in the winter, but lukewarm water avoids stripping as many oils away from the skin.
2- Hydrate from the inside-out
Eating foods high in water content can help hydrate your skin in and out. Try watermelon, cantaloupe, apples, oranges, kiwi, and watery veggies like celery, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and carrots.
We often forget to help the skin slough off dead cells in the winter, particularly on our hands. Yet moisture can’t get in if the dead cells block the way in.
4- Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
Following exfoliation, quickly apply moisture to your skin to truly feel a difference. Skin will be smoother, feel deeply nourished and refreshed.
Opt for a moisturizer that complements your skin type, and preferably has all of these components: humectants, hyaluronic acid, collagen, vitamins and peptides.
A peptide-packed formula helps to help revitalize skin’s building blocks so it becomes more resilient.
Don’t forget the sunscreen. Even when the sun doesn’t appear to be shining brightly, its rays are there, working their damage.
Winter sun can be just as harmful as summer sun, so apply a safe option like zinc oxide to any exposed areas.
Remember to use a formula such as Bonapiel's Sunscreen Moisturizer on all exposed areas of your body, including your face, ears, arms and hands. It should be applied 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating to ensure the most protection.
These guidelines should be followed year round, no matter what the weather. Protecting your skin will not only help you look younger, it will help protect you from developing skin cancer.
