- Posted on: Dec 30 2016
Although Kris Kringle himself is known for having rosy cheeks and a rosy nose that pops out of his beard, you are going to want to do everything you can this December to combat red, dry skin. With winter fast upon us and cold winds and temperatures wreaking havoc on everyone’s skin, it can be hard to know just exactly how you can protect it from winter’s harsh elements. However, by moisturizing and covering up when going outside, you can help to lock in the moisture and look like your less red self once again. Read on to learn more.
Your skin’s natural defense against dry, cracked skin is to moisturize. However, during these cold months, it’s hard for your skin to keep up with all the dryness and so you need to keep it moisturized using a face cream or lotion. When shopping for a face cream or lotion, you don’t need to spend oodles of money. In fact, brands like Cetaphil— which can be bought over the counter— can help to give your skin the nourishment it needs without you having to spend hundreds of dollars.
If it is a particularly cold and windy day, you can protect your skin in the best way possible by covering up. By protecting your skin from harsh winds, you can help prevent it from cracking and drying out. Simply cover your face up with a sweater or scarf when going outside— it’s an easy and quick way to protect your skin.
If you are a believer that you only need to wear sunscreen when you are either at the pool or beach, then you are mistaken. In fact, it is just as easy for you to get a sunburn in the winter than it is in the summer. And, as you’ve likely experienced in the past, a sunburn can easily dry out your skin and cause it to become red and irritated. To protect your skin as much as possible, make sure that you are wearing a daily sunscreen over your moisturizer.
Keep your skin moisturized and nourished all winter long by using the tips listed above. To learn more about other skincare tips or to schedule an appointment with one of our skincare experts, contact Allure Skin and Laser today!
