    Winter-Proof Your Skin with Cold Weather Skin Care Tips

    The winter months are upon us, and the combination of dry, cold air, thick, snuggly fabrics, and use of heaters can wreak havoc on your skin. Hands, feet, and faces suffer most, but all of your epidermis can dry out, flake, and pucker with ash – that is, if you don’t take care of it properly. Below are eight winter skin care tips sure to keep your body in a moisturized glow throughout this holiday season:

    • Scale back harsh cleansers to milder formulas. Some soaps, astringents, and facial treatments are great for cleaning in sweaty summer months, but leave skin fragile and even itchy in cold weather. Try soaps that contain moisturizers, oatmeal, cocoa butter, or humectants (moisture-holding ingredients) like glycerin.
    • Space out special facial treatments like masks and peels to once a month or more, to keep from stripping the face dry.
    • Exfoliate the body, especially the feet, regularly. Buildup of dead skin not gives you the look of alligator hide, but keeps the new cells underneath from getting proper moisture and air. Use a heel scraper or pumice stone every few days to banish cracked heels. Try loofahs, sponges, or rough-textured towels to buff up the rest of your body.
    • Thicken up your moisturizers. Opt for oil-based body and face lotions, preferably with natural oils that seep into the skin instead of giving you a greasy look. Avocado, mineral, primrose, almond, and shea oils are all great for most skin types. You may also consider applying your heavier night cream to your face for day time as well, to prevent wind and sun damage. Petroleum-based products are also better for hands and feet, as a night treatment.
    • Turn on a humidifier to pump up arid rooms dried out by heaters. The extra humidity will keep your skin from growing chapped or flaky.
    • Cover up with gloves, mittens, scarves, and the like to keep yourself warm, dry, and out of harsh wind.
    • Avoid boiling-hot baths, as these tend to strip skin’s natural oils (thus the wrinkling). Even though it may feel great after tromping around in the snow, try a soak in warm water with a few drops of natural oils added, or one of many homemade treatments for itchy skin.
    • Apply sunscreen. The sun is still out there, and though it’s not at its strongest, you still need to protect yourself! Especially in snowy areas, the glare of sun off snow can cause severe sunburns.

    So don’t take chances! Protect yourself and your skin this winter; you’ll be glad you did immediately, and especially when bikini season hits again.

    Take care of yourselves,

    PerfectLocks
