How to Protect Your Skin from Winter Weather

Winter is here, folks, and we are definitely feeling it. While you’re probably doing your best just to keep warm when you venture outside, are you taking care of your skin? Since it’s your body’s largest organ and first line of defense against the elements, you should be taking a few precautions to protect your skin from winter weather.

Use the Right Skincare Products

The dry winter air can be a killer on your skin, so it’s essential that you use the right products to care for it. Purchase a deep moisturizer and apply it to your skin at least every morning and night — more often if you have the chance — in order to prevent dry, cracked, and irritated skin.

You should also use a good chapstick to keep your lips from cracking or splitting — talk about painful.

Drink a Lot of Water

One of the best water to protect your skin from winter weather is to drink a lot of water. When your body is hydrated, so is your skin, so aim to up your water intake during winter. You can drink plain water, infused it with flavors, or sip on electrolyte drinks — just avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks since those can dehydrate you.

Use a Humidifier

We bet you love having your home toasty warm, but the warmer the air, the dryer it is. That dry air can dry out your skin and leave it itchy and flaky. Use a humidifier to add a little more moisture to your home’s air and give your skin some relief.

Install a Water Softener

Hard water can dry out your skin and make it more susceptible to cracking during the winter. Installing a water softener can keep your skin safe and leave it feeling hydrated and soft.
