When the weather outside is frightful, our skin is not delightful. Blotchy, flaky, itchy, scaly, pimply complexions are common skin maladies that plague the best of us during the winter time. Fortunately, SKINNEY Medspa has some winter skin care solutions.
Moisturized skin is beautiful skin, but keeping your skin hydrated can be especially hard during the winter months. The lack of humidity in the frigid winter air dries up your skin’s natural oils, leaving your face, hands, and feet thirsting for moisture. Fortunately, Marisa Martino, licensed esthetician and owner of SKINNEY Medspa in NYC offers some simple tips and products to help you keep your skin hydrated, healthy, and looking beautiful during the bitter months of the polar vortex.
The Top 4 Secrets for Keeping Your Skin Hydrated in the Winter Months
1. Chug! Chug! Chug!
It’s easy to cut down on your water intake during the winter, but cold weather is when your skin needs h2o the most. Hydrate your skin from the inside out by drinking more water.
2. Remember the sunscreen
While it may seem counter-intuitive during the winter months, your skin still needs protection from the sun. Help keep your skin moisturized by wearing sun screen in the winter time. Choose a sunscreen that is infused with a moisturizer to give your skin the extra care it requires in cold weather.
3. Get a humidifier
You cannot control the weather, but you can effect the atmosphere inside your home. During the winter people dial up their thermostats with central heat in attempt to stay warm, but a toasty home traps your skin in a harsh and arid environment. Put some moisture back into the air with a humidifier.
