Tips to Protect skin From Cold Weather

Exfoliate:

It is very important to remove dead skin cells so that our skin can absorb moisture easily. You do not have to exfoliate every day as this would be very hard on the skin, but once or twice a week is enough to ensure that your skin can absorb the moisture it needs.

Use SPF:

When it’s cold, many of us think we do not need SPF, but in fact we really do. Although we do not have much sun there are still UVA and UVB rays that at first sight we can not see but they are highly damaging to our skin. SPF creates a protective layer for the skin that is needed in this adverse weather.

Hydrate:

It is important to hydrate throughout the year, but during the winter months it is good to use moisturizers that are oil based rather than liquid based as the oil generates a protective layer on the skin & keep moisture.

Water temperature:

When we are in the cold all we want to do is enter and take a hot shower. This may seem like a good idea, but it is making your skin without favors. What you are doing is scratching the skin of your protective oils so it is best to stick to the medium temperature showers.

Protect your hands:

The skin on our hands is thinner than most parts of our body and has fewer oil glands so it is important that we take steps to help protect them during the winter. Cold weather can cause our hands to lose moisture, resulting in dryness and sometimes cracking and itching. To help prevent this from happening, moisten your hands every day and wear gloves when facing the cold.
