BBRRRR: Taking Care Of Your Skin In Winter

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

winterBBRRRR! Winter is in full swing with many days of below zero temperatures ahead. So here are a few helpful tips to take care of your skin: (1) Moisturizing: The most common mistake people tend to make is over-moisturizing their skin. Do you really know your skin type? Here is a simple way to find out > Wash your face with a gentle cleanser (e.g. Spectro Gel), wait for 20 mins to test your skin, and then touch your face with clean hands: if there is no shine/oil on your skin surface, then you are likely combination dry skin; if your skin feels tight when you smile, then you are likely very dry skin; if there is visible oil in the t-zone (forehead, nose, chin area), you are likely combination oily skin; and if your face is completely shiny, then you are likely oily skin. (2) Winter Face Care: When your skin complexion feels flaky and sensitive that means you are dehydrated (even though you may have naturally oily skin). I know you hear this all the time but drinking 8-10 glasses of water and getting 6-8 hrs of sleep daily are the 2 best ways keep your skin hydrated and your blood to bring necessary to nutrients to your body. Also it is important to exfoliate once a week in the winter (all skin types) as dead skin can’t get hydrated properly. Do apply face cream on a daily and nightly basis. Please don’t fall for expensive skin care products. Some of you may love brands like La Mer (which is great) but did you know that Oil of Olay and L’Oreal are amongst the selling skin care lines today? (3) Winter Eye Care: During the winter months use a good eye cream to protect the delicate eye area day and night. Also keep a pair of sunglasses handy to protect the eyes from wind and glare from the sun that will quickly contribute to tiny wrinkles and dehydrated skin. (4) Winter Lip Care: Applying a lip balm as and when needed is important. Use one with SPF 15 or more during the day. Warm sesame oil will soothe your lips too. Avoid licking your lips and don’t bite the skin on the surface of your lips (p.s. skin will never have a chance to heal if you nibble on it constantly. This may be hard habit to break for some but well worth the effort. (5) Sunscreen In Winter: It is just as necessary to wear a sunscreen during the winter as it is in the summer. The temperature has nothing to do with it other than how often to reapply. Snow is highly reflective and can intensify the sun’s rays. Wear no less that an SPF15 on your face, neck and ear area while outdoors (whether driving, dog-walking, skiing, running, snowboarding or shopping). Stay warm and be safe!!
