Winter Skincare | Must-Have Products!

Winter Skincare Blog

National Winter Skin Relief Day is observed annually on January 8. National Winter Skin Relief Day brings awareness to our skincare needs during this time and reminds us of the importance of properly caring for our skin. Since that was yesterday, we were inspired. One of our top blogs EVER was our post last year about preparing your skin during the colder months. So today we are featuring our must-haves for these next few cold months!

Hydrate Your Lips

Our lips are a giveaway of how our skin is feeling. Dehydration, overexposed to the sun, drying, etc., all of these things show in our lips. I recommend keeping your lips moisturized every day. Something I HIGHLY recommend is to sleep with a lip mask on. Now, this may seem crazy but, your lips will appear larger and plumper because they are no longer dry and shriveled. They will be moist and PLUMP! This is my all-time favorite lip mask to sleep with. I cannot go on enough with how much I love it.

Keep It Cool

It may be freezing outside, but cranking up the heater or taking those burning hot showers is a TERRIBLE idea for your skin. The heat will also DRY your skin. I suggest keeping temps at what you have preferred year-round and lukewarm showers. Like I tell my husband – “If you’re cold, BUNDLE UP”. You need to focus less on the temperature of air and water and more on getting your skin the moisture and hydration it needs.

*Tip: Invest in a humidifier!

SPF In Winter – Yes You Still Need It

Sunscreen should ALWAYS be in your skincare routine. The sun may not feel so penetrating this time of year, that is only because the temps are cooler. The sun is still beaming strong UVs on your skin, so Protect it year-round. Up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays can penetrate clouds. You may not feel or see the sun but its damaging rays are still hard at work. UV radiation exposure increases 4 to 5 percent with every 1,000 feet above sea level. So while you may be in the snowy mountains of Colorado, you are thousands of feet closer to the sun.

Exfoliate, Exfoliate – Key Skincare

Exfoliating is such an important part of skincare for so many reasons and no matter the season. The most important reason to exfoliate is to exfoliate all of that dead skin off. I will give your skin more of an opportunity to absorb your moisturizers and serums helping your skin maintain proper hydration levels. A buildup of dead skin cells can dull your skin’s radiance and clog follicles, so keep your skin exfoliated by exfoliating 1-3 times a week!

Don’t Go Crazy on Your Skin

The colder temps seem to irritate our skin. So the last thing it needs is over usage of products. They can contain drying ingredients (think: Benzoyl Peroxides/Alcohols) that can be even more drying during the cooler months. Products containing cucumber or aloe are awesome for soothing and relaxing the skin. Use a gentle cleanser like this one available at Walmart.
