Cold Weather Skincare Tips
Just because you can’t see very much of the sun does not mean it’s not there. Cover up to avoid harmful UV rays, and be sure to layer with wicking fabric. You’ll want to avoid any irritation from scratchy fabrics, especially if you suffer from eczema or psoriasis. Also, check to make sure you are covered head to toe. No one needs frostbite after a day of fun. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen, as windburn is sunburn. A broad-spectrum SPF 30 should do the trick. Just reapply every couple of hours, especially if you are sweating.
Take care of your lips
When the cold air hits your lips for hours at a time, lips can become chapped and cracked. So, before you strap into those skis, layer on the lip protection and reapply regularly. Make sure it has hydrating ingredients like natural coconut or jojoba oils, vitamin E, beeswax, and shea butter. For an added bonus, try to get a lip balm with an SPF in it. Lips can get sunburned too.
Just because it’s not hot out and you’re not sweating, does not mean you can slow down on your water intake. A hydrated body helps your skin stay hydrated too. Soaking in a hot bath may feel like it would keep skin moisturized, but it doesn’t. A long, hot soak will strip natural oils from the skin, drying you out. Take that hot shower, but then apply a good moisturizer all over. Products with hyaluronic acid will draw moisture right back into your skin.
