Winter does have its good points – like Christmas, the first snowfall, that drop-dead gorgeous coat hanging in your closet that you bought on sale at the end of last winter! But like the annoyance of snow that quickly turns to slushy mud, we kinda don’t like the effect winter has on our skin! We think that animals have got winter pretty sussed by going into hibernation, but us humans have to keep living life above ground. So here’s some winter-proofing tips to see you through the colder months:
Chilly temperatures, wind, hotter showers and baths plus the low humidity caused by indoor heating causes our skin to dehydrate more than normal. Take your regular face cream with you and apply during the day. Add a night cream to your skin care routine if you don’t already and also remember to wear a lip balm whenever you are outdoors. Switch your regular mask for a hydrating one.
