Do you find that your skin gets dryer during the wintertime? This happens to most people, and it can lead to premature aging of the skin during the winter months. How can you protect your healthy glow? Here are some of the best tips for skincare during the harsh winter months.

  1. Drink more water – Proper hydration is a must if you want to keep your skin moisturized. When you are not hot, you may tend to feel thirsty less often, so now may be the time to get an app to remind you to grab a glass of water every 60-90 minutes.

  2. Don’t forget sunscreen – You wouldn’t think of leaving your home without it in summer, but in the winter – who wears sunscreen? The funny thing is, we all know the sun still exists in winter. We just don’t think about it because it isn’t as warm outside. But that won’t stop UV rays from causing sun damage, so wear that sunscreen all winter long.

  3. Maintain moisture in the air – One of the worst things we do to our skin in winter is heating our homes and workplaces. Obviously, you want to stay warm when you are indoors, but most sources of heat also suck all the moisture out of the air… and your skin. You may need to get a humidifier for winter to use while the heat is running.

  4. Use the right moisturizer – We don’t sweat as much in winter, so we tend to shower less often. Don’t do that. Shower every day and apply your moisturizer while your skin is still damp. This may also be a good time to look at your skin products and see if you need to replace or upgrade any of them.

  5. Get softer PJs – We also bulk up on what we wear to sleep in the winter. This, too, can cause an issue if your skin is touching a scratchy material all night. Stick to natural fabrics both for your sheets and anything you wear to bed on a cold winter night.
