WINTER SKIN TIPS
Don’t Lick Your Lips
Your lips are skin too. It may feel temporarily better but saliva will dehydrate the delicate skin on your lips.
During the winter drink plenty of water, and always have a lip balm like Vaseline, Aquaphor, lip oils to keep your lips moisturized.
Pick A Cleanser For Your Skin Type
If you have dry skin you want to pick a cleanser that is not harsh on your skin barrier.
Micellar water is a great way to wash your face without stripping it. It is also great for removing make-up, I also like cream-based cleansers that are less stripping.
Scrubbing or Exfoliating
Once a week maximum and stay away from scrubs if you have dry, red irritated skin.
Exfoliation can be great to remove dead skin cells and will allow your skin care products to be better absorbed into your skin.
In the winter I like to recommend using Creams and ointments instead of lotions. Those are thicker and more emollient. You should always moisturize your skin while still damp after your shower and for your face after using a facial mist. If you are outside skiing or shoveling snow moisturize as soon as you head back indoors to reintroduce any lost moisture and help with any irritation from wind, snow, and cold temperatures.
Not Wearing Sunscreen In The Winter
Even though it is cold outside and definitely not sunny you still need to wear your sunscreen daily. I recommend SPF 50 or above.
