Winter is here, and with it comes dry skin, redness and chapping. During the winter, low-humidity and artificial indoor heat combine to sap your skin of moisture, resulting in dry patches, rough texture and a dull complexion.
To keep your skin looking and feeling, soft, radiant and healthy all winter long, follow these simple precautionary steps.
1. Moisturize morning and night
Apply skin moisturizer liberally and frequently. Skin moisturizers provide a protective barrier to help skin fend off winter’s harsh elements.
During the winter, not only is the outside air, but because we tend to crank up the heat, the inside air tends to be drier than usual, too. To balance out the dryness and keep it from affecting your skin, use a room humidifier as you sleep.
3. Stop Licking Your Lips!Licking your lips causes evaporation and will just make them more dry and chapped. Instead, use a balm with vitamin E and keep it with you at all times
