Did you know that climates like Colorado cause you to age seven years faster than in a humid climate? As each season comes and goes, prepping your skin for the weather can save you from scrambling for a way to help skin issues before they arise. If you are not prepared, the changes to your skin can make for a long winter. We have prepared the following information and tips to prepare you for the upcoming colder weather.
How Cold Weather Affects Your Skin
The cold temperature and low humidity results in dry air leaving your skin without moisture. Since the temperatures are so cold, most people have their heat on which can take even more moisture out of your skin. Those with eczema or psoriasis may notice their symptoms are exacerbated by the cold weather. These tips and tricks on how to get your skin ready for the cold can help you avoid severe effects from the cold weather.
5 Tips to Cold Weather-Proof Your Skin
1 ) Revamp Your Skin-Care Regimen.
Your basic skin-care routine should get an overhaul when the temperature outside starts to drop. Research what brands you are using, not all products are created equally. We recommend and offer professional products from Epionce and Alastin. For the evening you will want to use a deep moisturizer like the Epionce Intense Nourishing Cream. For daytime use something a bit lighter like the Alastin Ultra Light moisturizer
2) Use A Mineral Sunscreen
Mineral sunscreens provide protection from UVA/UVB, IR rays, pollution, and blue light. We recommend Alastin SilkSHIELD All Mineral Sunscreen, or for a tinted version try Epionce Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50. We offer both products available for purchase.
3) Protect Your Lips.
An area of the body that is often forgotten about are the lips, but it’s one of the most important areas to worry about as cold weather hits. Preparing your lips for the cold weather is as easy as applying a lubricating lip balm daily, both before the cold weather arrives and during the cold weather season. If you are not hydrating your lips, they can become dry and chapped.
4) Use a humidifier.
Even the inside air can dry your skin and make it uncomfortably itchy and patchy. A humidifier will infuse the air in your home with moisture and help hydrate your skin.
5) Treat Yourself To A Skin Treatment
Skin treatments like HydraFacials deeply cleanse, extract, and hydrate the skin through serums filled with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The Perfect Dermapeel uses a mixture of chemicals applied to your skin and the upper layer of the damaged skin is removed. It removes layers of damaged skin cells due to blocked pores and controls acne and prevents acne scars.
