Taking care of your skin is important year-long, but during the dryer, colder winter months, it’s extra important to properly nourish and care for your skin. If you live in areas prone to colder weather, this is even more important. With the use of a few winter skin care tips, your skin doesn’t have to suffer much during the winter months, though. Check out these simple tips for taking care of your skin this winter and then read on for a fun giveaway that will help you nourish your skin and keep it healthy the rest of the year!
Simple Winter Skin Care Tips for Healthy Skin All Year Long
(*Some tips provided by Eucerin US)
- Save the long relaxing bath for the spring. Bathing for long periods in hot water can cause skin to lose natural oils and nutrients, so Eucerin suggests you take short showers in lukewarm water.
- Get plenty of rest. It seems sleep is ultra-important all-around for just about everything our body needs and our skin is no exception, as a full night’s sleep helps your skin look its best.
- Keep your hands moisturized. Use a lotion like Eucerin Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Creme after washing your hands with a gentle soap and lukewarm water to relieve dryness.
- If in the cold, wear gloves. Protect your hands from the cold weather by wearing gloves when outside – keep an extra pair in your purse for easy access!
- Protect your feet too! Help repair and nourish heels and feet with a foot lotion like Eucerin Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Foot Creme, which you can apply at night before going to sleep.
- Clean and moisturize before bed. I like to wash my face at night and apply a face moisturizer before heading to bed. I know my face won’t be facing much at night, so it’s a great time for it to recover and soak up all that moisturizer.
