Skin Care Tips for Winter

We know this is no news flash, but cold winter air is harsh to your skin. The low temps combined with wind and low humidity outdoors will dry your skin out, while warm and dry air indoors will further rob the moisture from your skin. Without proper care, dry skin can lead to redness, itchiness, chapping, and cracking, and make other skin conditions such as eczema and acne worse. Taking proper care of your skin- from both the inside and outside- can counteract these effects and keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. The following are some of our top tips to keep your skin looking its best in the winter- and beyond.

1. Consume healthy fats- especially omega-3’s. The best way to keep your skin soft is to moisturize from within! Your skin needs plenty of healthy fats to stay flexible and healthy. Eating whole foods such as eggs, nuts, and avocados, will be a great way to accomplish this.

2. Eat lots of fruits and veggies. Just like the rest of your body, your skin needs the vitamins and minerals in fruits and vegetables to stay healthy. The natural salts will help you retain more water and stay hydrated, while the antioxidants will help fight free-radical damage and aging. 

3. Turn down the thermostat. Don’t crank up the heat too high, and turn the temperature down even lower at night. Dress in layers and use more blankets on your bed at night to help you stay comfortable. This little tip will help your skin retain its much needed moisture, and also help you to be more alert during the day and sleep better at night.

4. Sun protection. The sun can still damage your skin in winter! A high percentage of UVA rays still penetrate the atmosphere, which will in turn age your skin. Just as in the summer, use caution if you’re outdoors during the day. Sunscreen should be worn during extended sun exposure, and hats and full-coverage clothing will also help.

5. Call a pro! Professional facials involve deep cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturizing. We can help to correct any issues you may have with your skin already-such as acne- while also minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Exfoliation is especially important to rid your skin of dead skin cells and allow a good quality moisturizer to penetrate your skin and build a protective barrier.
