Now that autumn is officially here, we all know that winter will soon be upon us bringing its cold, dry air. And with that cold, dry winter air, comes dry, itchy and cracked skin. Our skin is very susceptible to damage from cold weather and we must take extra precautions during the autumn and winter months.
These colder months also bring a wide range of other skin conditions as we bundle up in layers to keep warm and dry. These extra layers often lead to chafing, excessive sweating and more. To prevent the additional pain and discomfort during the colder seasons, we are going to share some useful tips that will help you prepare your skin for the seasons' change. Let’s get started:
5 Tips To Help You Prepare Your Skin For The Seasons' Change
Use A Moisturiser - the air during autumn and winter is typically much less humid than in summer. That means that you need to take extra steps to keep your skin moisturised. Using a high quality moisturiser will leave your skin softer and more hydrated while helping you avoid dry, itchy skin all season long.
Apply Moisturiser To Damp Skin - just after your shower, while your skin is still damp, apply your moisturiser. Why? Applying moisturiser to damp skin will help lock in that additional hydration, keeping your skin softer and healthier.
Hydrate - to keep your skin healthy and soft all season long, remember to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water during the cold winter months including hot tea and other herbal drinks designed to replenish your body’s natural nutritional balance.
Take Shorter Showers - those long, hot showers might seem like a comforting idea on a cold, snowy day, but they are actually drying out your skin. Taking shorter showers and moisturising right after will help you avoid drying out your skin.
