The skin is always exposed to the environment, which means it’s much more vulnerable to changes in that environment than other organs in the body.
With this shift in weather, our skin has to adapt, so our skin care routine has to change along with it. Here are 5 tips for your best winter skin:
1. Change your cleanser
This is probably the most important thing you can do for your skin. Sweat and activity in the summertime often call for a more clarifying cleanser like the Citrus Mint Cleanser, while fall and winter hibernation demand that you take a gentler approach.
2. Change your moisturizer
You’ve probably already heard that it’s best to use oil in the summer and cream in the winter. In the late fall we’re transitioning into colder windy days, blasting heaters, and less water in the air—all of which suck that hydration out of our skin.
Switch to a more deeply penetrating moisturizer at night to help keep your skin from developing dry patches. Don’t forget the eye area. This delicate skin also requires more moisture.
3. Indulge in a New Hand Cream
Your hands are in and out of water on a very regular basis, so you need to apply moisturizer more frequently to your hands than the rest of your body. That's why it's so important to have a hand creme in your handbag.
4. Remember Your Feet
Having nice feet just make you feel good, so grab a foot scrub and keep it in your shower. Scrub your feet 1-2 times a week and you'll enjoy soft feet that won't snag your sheets.
5. Don't Forget Sunscreen
Just because you may not be laying on the beach doesn't mean you can forget the sunscreen for the next 6 months. Sunscreen is a daily essential, so don't set it aside.
