This week we’re sharing some of our top skin care tips to help you keep your skin looking and feeling good this winter as the cold sets in.
- Look after your hands
Hands are prone to more damage than normal in winter, from the cold weather drying them out when you’re outside, to hot water scolding them when you wash your hands or wash up. Ensure you always carry a good moisturiser to look after your hands even when you’re out and about. Wear gloves to protect your hands from the cold when you’re outside and make sure you wear rubber gloves when you’re washing up to shield them from the hot water and detergent.
Another good tip is to place hand moisturiser alongside a moisturising hand soap in your bathrooms and kitchens at home, to ensure your whole family’s hands are hydrated when they’re being hygienic.
- Wrap-up warm
Wrap-up warm when you go outside, put on cosy gloves, a scarf and hat to protect your extremities from the cold temperature and consequent drying effects.
- Stay hydrated
We’ve talked about the importance of hydrating your skin this winter, but don’t forget to hydrate your body too. When the weather is colder, we’re not as naturally thirsty as we are in the warmer months, however staying hydrated on the inside helps to keep your skin hydrated too.
- Brush Your Lips
Lip balm usage reaches the highest levels at this time of year. As well as using balm on your lips, you can also give your lips a little bit of soft exfoliation when you’re brushing your teeth. Sounds quite silly, but do it every night before bed and you’ll notice a great improvement in your lips after just a few days.
