Winterize Your Skin Care Routine

Unless you live in a tropical paradise, winter's cold, dry air can really throw your skin for a loop! So what should you do when Old Man Winter assaults your healthy, beautiful skin? Just follow these easy to remember tips and start dreaming of spring!

Moisturize more, lots more! Replenish missing moisture indoors by using a humidifier through your home, or at least in your bedroom. Soaking in a hot bath feels great, but it can lead to a loss of moisture. Heat breaks down the protective lipids in your skin and creates dry, irritated skin. So use warm water instead.

Apply a moisturizer right after bathing when the skin is still moist. This helps lock in the water on your skin and forms a protective seal to prevent dryness and irritation. Use a moisturizer specifically formulated for winter. Look for products that contain feverfew, a natural ingredient related to chamomile, known for its soothing properties. Feverfew delivers multiple skin benefits including soothing dry and sensitive skin.

And remember, sunscreen isn't just for summer. Winter sun combined with snow glare can damage your skin. Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen on your face and hands about 30 minutes before going outside. When you know how to prevent winter skin dryness, you'll always have That Certain Something.
