The frigid temps, cold winds and dry air are quickly setting in, and you might already be feeling winter's harsh effects on your skin. Yes, unfortunately as the air starts to chill and the changing of seasons has set in, dry, rough skin is all too common a consequence.
This time of the year, the humidity levels in the air drop drastically, and as a result the air becomes cold and dry. This dryness in the air causes the moisture in our skin to evaporate more quickly, leaving behind that dry winter skin.
The good news is, you don’t need to plan out a radical new skincare routine in order to keep your skin looking fresh and moisturized this winter. With an eye on simplicity, here are a few tips to winterize your skincare game, to banish dry skin for good.
Hydration tops this list Every. Single. Time. No matter the time of year, staying adequately hydrated is the number one best thing you can do not only for the health and appearance of your skin, but for your whole body. Make sure you’re drinking enough water each day to keep your skin moisturized from within.
2. Wash your face every day.
Cleaning your face should be a daily part of your skin care routine. It refreshes your skin and gives your pores a chance to breathe. There are plenty of facial cleansers on the market, but even simple soap and water is better than leaving your face covered with excess oil, sweat, dirt and dead skin cells that accumulate throughout the day.
3. Moisturize Frequently
It can’t be stressed enough: your skin needs a little extra-hydrating love this winter season. The ELI Skincare Winter Defense Therapy Nourishing Face Cream for men is an ideal choice, as it rejuvenates and protects skin from winter dryness. Formulated with organic oils and rich nutrients that lock in moisture and provides a barrier against water loss. This facial cream easily absorbs leaving your skin comfortable and nourished.
4. Don’t Forget your Lips
Your lips need the same attention that you give your skin - they can just as easily dry out, and worse, become painfully chapped. You can go for a regular daily lip balm, or, for a little more intense moisture, choose an overnight balm to restore hydration as you sleep.
The cold winter air coupled with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on the moisture content of your skin, which means this season it is imperative that your skincare routine includes extra moisturizing and hydration.
That doesn’t mean it needs to be complicated, though!
Follow the tips above to keep your skin looking and feeling its best all winter long.
