Baby, it’s Cold Outside! Prepare your skin like you would prepare your outerwear for winter’s drier, colder air
For those of us who live in colder climates, we need to think about the effects of the weather each time we get dressed in the morning and step out our front door. Is it a good day for boots? Will I need a hat and gloves? Where is my warmest scarf? As the mercury falls, the cold winds start blowing and our heaters kick on, we also need to give the same daily consideration that we give to our outerwear to the health and hydration factor of our skin, especially the thinner skin on our face, lips and hands. If we don’t, we risk the unnecessary unpleasantness of having chapped, dry, brittle or rough skin.
Certainly, there are a few things we can do daily to help reduce the discomfort of extremely dry skin. For one, using a gentle face and body cleanser and being extra careful to dab the skin instead of rubbing it harshly will help minimize red, rough skin. Drinking plenty of water and following a diet rich in vitamins can also help to keep your entire body hydrated. However, to be 100% hydrated during winter’s coldest months, your face, body, lips and hands need some additional gentle-but-effective emollients.
