Think bundling up and moisturizing are the only things you need to avoid dry winter skin? Think again! Your skin changes every hour, just like the weather, and winter can be especially temperamental on your skin. Here’s how to prep your skin for winter:
- Polish from Head to Toe: Polishing (aka exfoliating) removes dead skin cell debris and revives your skin to stay soft, supple, and rosy all winter long. If you live somewhere with lower humidity, polish 2-3 times a week instead of every day or use a sensitive skin polish.
- Hydrate: Sugar, alcohol, and coffee intake promote inflammation and dehydration so avoid them! Drink plenty of water to stay well— inside and out.
- Nourish: In order to prevent further dryness on your skin, use a high-quality moisturizer such as the Nourish for an extra layer of protection against extreme temperature, humidity, and water loss.
- Avoid Hot Showers: Hot water breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin. Stick to warm water and keep your showers short to avoid parched fingers.
- Wear Sunscreen: Winter sun and snow glare can still damage your skin. Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher at least 30 minutes before you go outside and make sure to reapply every 2 hours!
