How to Keep Your Skin Healthy During Colder Months

Winter is here, and it's ready to wreak havoc on your summer glow if you aren't careful. The lower temperatures and the overall drier air can cause a variety of skin problems from slight flaking all the way to cracking and even bleeding in more severe cases. There is hope, however! Although dry skin is common during the winter months, it doesn’t need to be. Here are a few things you can do to keep your skin soft and glowing all winter long.


Turn Down the Heat

In the colder months, there's nothing better than waking up and taking a scorching hot shower to counteract the freezing temperatures outside. But the thing is, hot water isn't the best for your skin's health. That's because hot water can dry your skin and strip away its essential oils that keep it hydrated and healthy. You don’t necessarily need to take frigid showers, but aim for lukewarm water instead.

Also, keeping your thermostat set at a reasonable level can prevent your skin from drying out excessively. Yes, with colder temperatures outside, having an 85-degree home can feel like a cozy haven, but it isn't doing any favors for your skin. Keep the thermostat around 68–72 degrees and your skin will thank you.

Bundle Up

A primary culprit of dry skin in the winter is the cold, dry air. For this reason, you should limit your exposure to the frigid winds of winter by covering your skin as much as you can while outside. Parts of the body such as the hands, neck, and face are especially susceptible to dry skin and the other issues associated with colder weather. Get used to wearing gloves while outside and throw on a scarf to protect your neck and keep you warm. Also, even though it might seem like you're safe from the sun's rays in the winter, if you plan to spend a good chunk of the day outside, throw on some sunscreen to protect your skin.

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

Exfoliating isn't just a summertime activity, and it is even more crucial during these colder months. Exfoliating will help fight against dried-out skin by removing dead skin cells and allowing your favorite moisturizer to seep in and hydrate your skin. For a fast and easy way to exfoliate, upgrade your shower routine with a bath sponge that gently scrubs and exfoliates the skin while delivering cleansing, moisturizing body wash.

Stay Hydrated

Another critical component to keeping your skin moisturized is to be hydrated inside and out. Specialty moisturizers can only do so much, but with the right diet and by drinking enough water, you can see physical results. Common hydrating foods include tomatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupe, and more.

Nourish Your Skin

Your skin needs essential vitamins, minerals, and oils to stay healthy year-round, and you should always nourish it regardless of the outdoor temperatures. Even so, in the winter it's paramount that you follow some sort of moisturizing routine. One easy way to nourish your skin is to shower with a bath sponge that’s infused with a body wash that contains vitamin A and nourishing shea butter, which makes keeping your skin nourished and rejuvenated simple no matter the season.
