Cold temperatures and changing fall and winter weather can wreak havoc on your skin causing it to dry out, crack, flake, lose shine and plumpness. Help keep that youthful summer glow all year long with these five tips to avoid unwanted cold weather dry skin.
#1 Get a Humidifier 🌧
Investing in a humidifier is a great way to keep your skin (face and body) properly hydrated. Putting it near your bed, home office or anywhere in close proximity to where you are is best.
Healing from the inside out is usually our go-to, but adding moisturizer directly onto the skin helps too! Try choosing a moisturizer that does not contain alcohol as this ingredient usually causes more dryness.
#3 Use Sunscreen ☀️
Even though the sun is not as hot as it is on a hot summer day, the UVA/UVB light can still cause irreversible skin damage. Too much sunlight can result in sun damaged skin, wrinkles, discoloration and even some form of cancers.
#4 Limit Time in the Shower 💦
When it's chilly outside all we want to do is just run into the shower and crank up the heat. But while it helps warm you up, your skin can suffer. Hot water temperatures directly on the skin can lead to dryness which then leaves your skin feeling cracked and dry. Limited time in the shower will help your skin keep its natural oils that help it stay naturally moisturized.
#5 STAY HYDRATED! 💧
We've said it before and we'll say it again... one of the best ways to avoid fall and winter dry skin is by staying hydrated. Having enough water in your body is crucial to its overall function. It will also help make sure that your cells are fully hydrated which helps to keep your skin plump and clear.
A great way to spruce up your water and give your body the minerals it needs to hold onto the water you drink is by mixing in Ultima Replenisher electrolyte powder. With benefits like vitamin c, zinc, 6 electrolytes and trace minerals, it's the perfect cold weather boost for you and your skin. Stay beautiful, beautiful!
