Winter is almost here! You have plenty of things to worry about with upcoming holidays and celebrations, the least thing you want to have to deal with is dry itchy skin. Fortunately, we have some great tips on how to prepare and take care of your skin for the winter!
You might have an all time favorite moisturizer you have used throughout the year and has worked just fine but with climate changes you should also find something that better suits your skin. Finding something new to try out is simple! You want something that is going to let your skin lock in moisture during the day. Products that are oil based tend to work better because they keep your skin soft and hydrated all day unlike regular lotion.
Picking out what you are going to wear for the day can be hard but with these tips you might save time and hastle. You might not realize that how and what you wear also affects your skin’s appearance and health. Avoid wearing itchy clothing like wool and other fabrics similar to this too close to your skin, if you absolutely have to wear it try to wear something under it so it is not constantly rubbing against your skin. Opting for the softer fabrics like cotton will not only be more comfortable but it will also let your skin breathe and prevent it from getting dry or irritated.
Your lips need attention too! Lips tend to be more sensitive as the weather starts changing and it starts getting cold out. Wind and cold weather have a drying effect on your lips as it strips the moisture aways since they are more vulnerable because skin is so much thinner. There are many different kinds of lip balms you can use to soothe and prepare your lips, anything with beeswax, moisture-locking effect, soothing and calming is good to use.
Keeping skin radiant and flawless does not only work by taking care of the outside of your body but also the inside. Make sure to increase your water intake to keep your body hydrated because when the temperature drops and winds rise the air gets drier making it almost impossible for our bodies to get the moisture we need and are use to. A full glass of water with ice does not seem so appealing during the winter but there are many different options to choose to make sure you drink more water, like warm herbal teas and flavor add-ins for water.
