Tips For Keeping Your Skin Supple During Winter

Tips For Keeping Your Skin Supple During Winter

Changes in seasons are beautiful, but our skin may not enjoy it as much as we do.  From low temperatures and dry air in the fall to allergies in the spring; from unbearable heat and humidity in the summer to frigid air in the winter; the list is endless.  

Even before your skin gets used to challenges in one season, the next rolls around. Today we'll address how to navigate your skin through the winter.

Cold weather and low humidity contribute largely to dry skin. As the temperatures drop, our lips get drier and start to chap. Our skin is itchier and drier by the day. Our nails become more brittle. 

Whether you lock yourself in warm rooms or walk outdoors in long-sleeved clothing, the winter chill will undoubtedly take a toll on your skin. 

How exactly do the cold winter temperatures dry out your skin? 

  • Cold winter weather consists of very low humidity and dry air. These conditions rid your skin of moisture, leading to blotchiness, irritation, roughness to the touch, redness, and acne in some cases. Acne occurs because as the skin dries out, dead skin cells accumulate and clog pores. 
  • Cold weather tempts us to soak into hot bath water or take steaming showers. However, this harms the skin. Hot water is very drying, so it's best to take warm baths and showers and keep them short.
  • As the days get colder, we tend to turn up the heat in our cars, homes, and offices. Hot air dehydrates our skin, causing itchiness. 

All of these factors stress out your skin. You might have switched from one moisturizer to the next without success. Why don't you try the all-natural hydrating moisturizer from Sole Toscana? We don't use any harsh chemicals, alcohol, or synthetic fragrances that cause and worsen dryness. Using natural, nourishing skincare products guarantees you soft, healthy moisturized skin.
