For many of us, the cold winter brings more than just a rosy glow to the cheeks. It can also bring uncomfortable dryness to the skin of the face, hands, and feet. As soon as you turn the heat on indoors, the skin starts to dry out. It doesn’t matter if you heat your home using oil, wood, or electricity. The skin gets dry. Try these 3 methods to help your skin through winter.
1. Moisturize More
You may have found a moisturizer that works just fine in spring and summer. But as weather conditions change, so should your skin care routine as well. Find an “ointment” moisturizer that’s oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion. Try UltraLuxe’s BB Oil. It visibly reduces dark spot, evens out the skin tone, provides immediate hydration and moisturizes skin while restoring skin’s luminosity, helping to smooth and firm fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Don’t Forget Those Hands
The skin on your hands is thinner than on most parts of the body and has fewer oil glands. That means it’s harder to keep your hands moist, especially in cold, dry weather. This can lead to itchiness and cracking. Wear gloves when you go outside to keep your hands warm. You can also get extra help from UltraLuxe’s MicroVenom Hand Cream with SPF 30. Our exclusive MicroVenom technology with wrinkle-smoothing Synthetic Snake Venom and rejuvenating Apple Stem Cell technology will help smooth and firm the fine lines and wrinkles of the hands while hydrating to help restore the skin’s youthful glow. Helps lighten and diminish discoloration while it evens out skin tone and reduces the appearance of spots.
3. Invest in a Humidifier
Central heating systems (as well as space heaters) blast hot dry air throughout our homes and offices. Humidifiers get more moisture in the air, which helps prevent your skin from drying out. Place several small humidifiers throughout your home; they help disperse the moisture more evenly and your skin will thank you!
