Do you switch out your summer clothes when the temperature drops? What about your skin care? You wouldn’t go out in a bathing suit in October, your skin shouldn’t be going out like it's summer too!
Winter is super tough on the skin. The lack of moisture paired with indoor heating can leave your skin completely dehydrated and even itchy. When the seasons change, your skin regime should change too.
Between the harsh winter weather and indoor heaters, your skin is constantly being drained of its natural moisture. This happens because your skin has more moisture than the air during this time of year, so the dry air is constantly trying to draw that moisture out. #rude So it’s super important to replenish moisture and prevent dehydration, as that dehydration can cause flakey skin and makes it more prone to wrinkles.
- drinking plenty of water
- use a humidifier
