Quick Tips To Care for Your Skin in Winter

If our cold, gray days make your skin feel uncomfortable, you’re not alone. Dry, red, itchy skin can crop up all over your body, but it’s especially likely to impact your face due to greater exposure.

Here are four ways to care for your skin during the winter months.

1. Consider changing your facial products.

Your lightweight cleansers and moisturizers probably aren’t doing enough to combat the cold weather’s effects. Choose a more hydrating cleanser than you might use during the summer, and invest in a thicker moisturizer to help with dry skin. Seasonal skincare allows you to give your skin what it needs all year.

2. Stay fully hydrated.

When the weather gets chilly, we aren’t as likely to drink enough water. Hot coffee might sound a lot better than a cold glass of water. And during the holidays, folks are likely to up their alcohol intake, too, further drying the skin.

Be sure to drink plenty of water or herbal tea during the cold months to give your skin a boost. Using a humidifier at night can also help your skin stay hydrated during the winter.

3. Remember your sunscreen.

Sun damage can happen every day of the year, no matter where you live or how little sun you see. Even on cloudy days, UV rays can reach your skin and wreak havoc. To care for your skin in winter, be sure to use high-quality sunscreen each day. This habit will protect your skin from sun damage and premature aging.

4. Visit your favorite Xenana esthetician.

Winter is the time that your skin needs extra pampering and attention. By getting regular facial treatments, you can help fend off the winter woes for your skin so that you feel your best. Most likely, your skin will need some exfoliation and intense moisturizing, but your esthetician will determine the right course of action for your skin’s current needs.

If you feel ready for some YOU time, grab a facial or massage appointment on our calendar. And don’t forget that exercise, stretching, and any movement that gets the blood flowing is also great for your skin. So perhaps now is the time to check out the Xenana yoga studio.
