3. Avoid Long, Hot Showers & Baths
We know how great a long, hot shower or bath can feel, especially when it’s cold outside and after a stressful week. However, as much as we love soaking to relax, this can strip our skin of important oils, damage the acid mantle, and weaken our skin barrier. Yes, long, hot showers and baths can dry your skin even more! This is why we only recommend lukewarm showers instead. We also suggest using lukewarm water when you wash your hands or face.
4. Always Use Sunscreen
The sunscreen craze begins with summer when people go to the beach. But, as we already mentioned in an article dedicated to sun exposure, sunscreen is not only for hot, sunny weather. The winter months sun can also damage your skin, especially when combined with glare from the snow. So, even when freezing outside, apply sunscreen to your face and hands every time you go out. And don’t forget to reply if you spend a lot of time outdoors.
5. Never Skip Your Beauty Routine Steps
While these are the aspects you should pay more attention to during winter, your skin needs you to follow all your care routine steps. So, don’t skip pampering it with moisturizing face masks, massages, as well as a good, healthy diet, and plenty of water. Also, if you already notice wrinkles and fine lines, using smoothing pads and patches is a fantastic choice. They act as a non-invasive treatment for these annoying skin aging signs and promise to treat the existing lines and prevent new ones, whether caused by facial expressions, sleeping on your side, phone scrolling, sun damage, or aging.
