The cold winter winds are blowing across much of the country these days and for many of us that means dreaded dry skin or even worse. Here at The Skin Rejuvenation Clinic, we want you to know that even when the weather outside is unsightly, your skin doesn’t have to be! Today we’re going to give you some tips to boost your winter skin care regimen so that you have healthy skin throughout the colder months.
- Consider seeing a specialist or coming into The Skin Rejuvenation Clinic! You’ll be hard pressed to find a salesperson at your local drugstore who can give you good advice specifically for your skin. That’s why it’s a great investment to go to an esthetician or dermatologist even once.
- Moisturize more and often! While your moisturizer may work just fine for you in spring and summer months, your skin care routine needs to change as the weather conditions do. Oil-based, ointment moisturizers are better than water-based ones for winter months as they create a protective layer on your skin that helps retain more moisture. However, remember to choose with care when it comes to oils because not all of them are appropriate for your face.
- Don’t forget the sunscreen! It isn’t just for the summer months. That winter sun, especially when it’s combined with snow glare, can and will definitely damage your skin over time.
- Don’t forget your hands, either. Did you know that the skin on your hands has fewer oil glands and is thinner than most other parts of your body? This means that it’s harder to keep your hands moist, which can lead to itchiness and cracking in the winter months. Don’t forget to moisturize your hands, too, and wear gloves when you’re outside.
