Winter Skin Protection

Winter is quickly creeping around the corner and with it comes the freezing temperatures. Although it’s fun to go out and find cute winter coats and other accessories for the long haul of cold winter ahead, we often forget about protecting our skin until it’s too late. Red, itchy and painful skin can be an annoying and unfun way to spend a snow day, so why not make sure that you don’t have to worry about it?

   Vitamins and Food

Fighting against illnesses, keeping your body the right temperatures and the various daily things your body has to put up with can leave it worn out. And since your skin is the largest organ on your body it can feel run down just like the rest of you. Winter is the time of the year when your body needs vitamins the most. So make sure you eat fresh fruits and vegetables to help support your skin.

   Changing Skin Care Products

Put your light weight basic body lotions ladies and bring out the heavy duty moisturizers. Dry skin needs nourishing cream, not only is the ai rdry  but the winter winds seem to dry out any drop of moisture it can. Look for denser lotions that give extra protection, but make sure that it also won’t block your pores. Try looking at Nivea Creme, it’s reported to help smooth and reduce roughness for up to 12 hours after being applied, and more than 98% of its ingredients are natural. Keep an eye out for products with a cream base, not gel, because cream bases have less water and won’t cause your face to peel in the cold weather.

   Don’t Forget Your Lips!   

Your lips can be super sensitive and needs to be protected just as much as your skin. Make sure you choose moisturizing balsam based. Burts Bees are the most highly recommended lipbalms out there for their price and amazing ingredients. But for some slightly medicated relief go in search of Blistex, they can help heal, sooth and protect your susceptible lips.

Handy Reminder

Make sure that you apply lotion to your hands regularly. It’s recommended that your reapply lotion at least two-three times a day. If you wash your hands in soap make sure you reapply, the soap draws moisture away from theskin.
