I know, I know, summer isn’t even over yet! However, before we know it, we’ll be putting on our winter jackets and getting our cutest fall boots out of the closet. When the seasons change, so does our attire, hairstyle, and makeup routine – but did you know you should change your skincare routine as well!? The light products you used during the summer months should now be replaced with thicker creams that will moisturize your skin and protect it from the cold weather. Here are a few ways you can protect your skin from the cold, dry air and windy weather this coming fall and winter seasons:
One of the best ways to protect your skin is to cover it up. Wear gloves, warm socks, layers, scarves, and hats. The longer you’ll be outside, the more protection you need. When your skin is left unprotected, you’ll be left with cracked skin that is not only damaging, but painful as well.
Dehydration takes a toll on your skin, and since winter weather is extremely drying, it’s easy to become dehydrated without even knowing. Try to avoid drinks with too much sugar and swap them with drinks that are more water based and can fight off dehydration.
STEER CLEAR OF HOT WATER
While hot showers and hot tubs may sound AMAZING in the winter, they will leave your skin more dry and cracked. Lukewarm water may not sound as luxurious, but it is much better for your skin.
This is the most important part of protecting your skin during the colder months. However, a lot of products claim to moisturize skin when in fact, the ingredients they contain will only make your dryness worse. All natural products are a must when moisturizing! Our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme is the perfect option! Use it twice a day to fight off dry, cracked skin!
