Do These Things to Protect Your Skin From Cold Weather
With cold weather blanketing the region, now’s the time to prepare yourself for the months to come. Doing so can go a long way in keeping you happy and healthy – and there’s nothing more important than that.
Your skin is one of the first things to feel the impact of colder weather. Here are three ways to protect your skin over the next few months:
· Use a winter moisturizer. By getting into this habit, you can be rest assured that your skin never dries out. For most people, applying a moisturizer once a day is more than enough for the relief they’re seeking.
· Don’t take long, hot showers. While it’s okay to take a hot shower or bath every now and again, don’t stay in contact with the water for too long. This can remove important oils from your skin, thus making it dry, flaky, and itchy.
· Wear sunscreen. It’s easy to believe you don’t need sunscreen when the temperatures dip below freezing, but it’s a mistake you’ll end up regretting. If you’re spending time outdoors, such as on the ski slopes, protect your skin with sunscreen.
These aren’t the only ways to protect your skin from cold weather, but you’ll definitely want to incorporate all three ideas into your daily life.
