Dec 2nd, 2010No Comments




With winter here it is important to be able to keep your skin as healthy as possible during the cold winter weather. It is very easy for a person to suffer from extremely dry skin during this time of the year which could lead to many unwanted wrinkles in the face in the future. There are some precautions you could and should be taking so these wrinkles do not ever occur.

Moisturize as much as you can

Facial cream is a great way to stay on top of any excessive dryness your face might run into from being exposed to the winter elements. It is important to moisturize the face and the hands during the day and during the night time.

Make Chap Stick your new friend

Don’t forget that moisturizing your lips is vital as well. Excessive chapping of the lips could lead to scarring and other ailments that are difficult to repair. Keep it in your pocket at all times so you never forget to keep them plump and moist.

Yup, sunscreen is not just for the beach

Depending on where you live the sun during the winter can sometimes be more powerful than during the summer. If you have to step outdoors quite often trying putting a layer of sunscreen on your face so the sun does not damage your skin.

Time for a humidifier

Indoor heating systems can often times spread very hot and dry air throughout the home leading to dry skin even when not physically outside. A humidifier can help alleviate that dryness in the air.

Stay away from alcohol based products for the face

Toners and astringents tend to have alcohol as the base ingredient which can severely deplete your facial skin from all natural oils, actually too much astringent can remove all necessarily oils from your face ultimately creating a whole series of other problems.

The winter time is a very important time to take care of your face because everything tends to really dry out the pores. If you do not do something to fight that dryness you could create life long lasting wrinkles in your face.
