Winter is not only the season of cold and flu but this drier and colder weather can also wreak havoc on your skin – making it itchy, dry and downright uncomfortable. According to Cleveland Clinic report, you lose oil and sweat glands as you get old, which can make your skin even drier.
Here are a few tips that can help you keep your skin hydrated, smooth and healthy throughout the winter.
Your facial skin needs more TLC in the winter season because it is directly exposed to the harsh elements. In order to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day and night make sure that you apply moisturizer after drying off in the shower. The use of sunscreen is also very important in the winter. The glare from the snow and the winter sun can still damage your skin.
Your lips can easily become dry, and chapped in the winter because their skin is especially thin. You can protect and hydrate them if you apply a lip cream or balm before going out in the cold winter. We recommend you to cover your lips with a scarf when you are outside. And never, ever, lick your lips! When you lick your lips the saliva evaporates faster than before.
You must take care of your hands throughout the winter season as they also have thin skin. You need a hand cream that can help you protect your skin.
Our scalp can get extremely itchy in the bitter cold, but we don’t consider thinking about it. Use a substance that can help ease redness, irritation, itching and flaking.
