Caring for Your Beautiful Skin During the Winter

Dry skin during the winter time is never fun to battle with. Just when you think your skin is moisturized and looks beautiful once more, your dry skin comes back. If you live in a dry climate it’s even more difficult to keep your skin moist and looking its best. Not to mention if you live in an extra chilly climate you have cold and dry weather combined to deal with. Instead of feeling like there is no way out of dry and cracked skin, here are some techniques that should get your skin back in excellent shape in no time.


Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin really is the key to getting rid of dead skin cells and allowing new skin to grow in its place. You don’t want to scrub so hard that you damage your skin, but you do want to scrub regularly so that new skin will emerge. Exfoliate your fact, arm, legs, etc. and do this at least every other day when you take your shower. If you have dry feet you may want to purchase a pumice stone or another tool will help you take care of extra rough skin.


Facial and Cosmetic Surgery

Besides exfoliation and moisturizing, you may have some impurities you would like to remove on your skin. Whether you crave small beauty enhancements or cosmetic surgery techniques finding a healthcare team and skincare specialists you trust is important. Minimally invasive treatments are also available from skincare specialists. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and improve your face and more with a treatment that will enhance your skin.

Invest in a Recommended Moisturizer

If you find that your current moisturizer isn’t doing the trick perhaps the reason why is because it’s not the type of moisturizer that works well with your skin type. Do some research on the recommended moisturizers and be willing to invest some money in a great product such as Kiehl’s or Oil of Olay. You can also make an appointment with a dermatologist and ask them what they would recommend for your skin type. Once you are trying a new moisturizer that is recommended don’t switch to another one right away if you don’t think its working. Give it at least a month to work its magic on your skin.

Use Sunscreen, Even During the Winter

Many people make the mistake and think just because the weather is cold they don’t have to wear sunscreen. It’s quite the opposite actually. When the sun is out you always need to be careful and avoid UV rays for extended periods of time. If you have a job that’s out in the sun wear sunscreen every day. You can put sunscreen on your face and the rest of your body and in addition you can wear makeup that has sunscreen in it. Remember to apply sunscreen regularly because if you’re outside and sweating the sunscreen will come off. It’s up to you to make sure your skin is protected so you won’t get skin damage or worse skin cancer later in life.

  1. Great tips. My skin really suffers during the winter. I need to exfoliate more I think.

  2. winter skin is the worst. exfoliating once a week is usually enough (esp. the face) because i don't want to aggravate the brittle, sensitive skin more. and thank you for telling it all over again...people forget to use sunscreen in the winter. the sun is always out...even when not visible. great post.
