Fact: Your skin-care regimen needs a serious upgrade once the temperatures start to drop. The lightweight moisturizers and serums you use in the summer will not give you the protection you need against winter’s different elements. It can get rough out there, and the first thing to react will be your skin. Keep your skin looking flawless this season with these tips!
Try to incorporate fruits and vegetables that are in peak season into your diet. Fall and Winter is prime time for pumpkin, squash, pomegranate and cranberries, so why not do your taste buds and your skin a favor by eating them. These foods will help feed your skin from the inside out and keep it looking its youngest most beautiful best.
Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. If you didn’t get the hint moisturizing is key in these colder months. We recommend applying lotion or moisturizer right after stepping out of the shower in order for it to seep in and be extra effective. Use a moisturizing formula that gently sloughs off dry, dead skin cells, while also locking in moisture. Our Glow Moisture Cream combines omega-3 and omega-7 EFAs oils to provide deep rich nourishing skin hydration without heavy after feel.
Turning up the heat indoors seems like a natural response to chilly winter weather, but raising the thermostat indoors dries the air, and skin out even more. The result is dry, flaky skin that is itchy and uncomfortable. Instead, start using a humidifier. Set the humidity level between 45% and 55% to infuse the air with enough moisture for you skin to reap the benefits.
Last but not least, cooler temps mean darker, dreary days. During this time, it can be easy to forget to use sunscreen. However, the sun’s harmful UV rays can permeate clouds and still cause damage. Especially on bright winter days, snow reflects the sun’s rays. That means whether you’re out on the slopes, playing in the snow, or just walking through a parking lot on an errand run, it’s just as important to be applying sunscreen in the harsh winter weather as it is in the summer.
