Winter Skin Guide

Cold, harsh climates and dry indoor air during winter can take a toll on you and your child’s skin. Keeping your skin healthy all season long takes just a little extra time and effort to maintain. Here are some tips for keeping your skin protected and moisturized all season long.

● Avoid long baths and showers, and don’t wash your body too frequently

○The natural oils produced by your skin can help protect it. Too much washing or overheating your skin can remove those oils and dry you out
○ Try to pat dry after bathing and always apply moisturizer to damp skin

● Add moisture into your indoor air

○ Incorporating humidifiers into your space allows the dry indoor heat to be infused with moisture, which your skin will readily absorb

● Don’t forget sunscreen

○ Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean the sun isn’t affecting your skin. You’re still getting damage from the sun’s rays in the winter, so be sure to continue wearing our daily SPF

● Switch up your skincare routine

○ Opt for more hydrating options for maintaining your skin during the cold months and put away products with drying ingredients until spring or summer

● Take extra care

○ Winter skin is more fragile, especially for those with skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. Be sure to avoid irritants and allergens that may flare these conditions
