Tips to save your skin during winter

Tips to save your skin during winter

Here in Michigan, we love our winter seasons, but dry skin is less than desired. If your everyday moisturizer isn’t cutting it, we have some tips for you to survive the winter skin.

Stay hydrated
water

Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Hydrating your body greatly helps your skin trap natural moisture.

Switch lotions
aveeno

Your skin reacts to lotions differently throughout the seasons. It may help with the summer sun but not through the winter cold. Switch to a cream instead of a lotion because they are thicker and richer in moisture. This will offer more protection for your skin. We love Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion. With anti-inflammatory chamomile and soothing lavender, this dermatologist-recommended salve won’t sting even cracked skin.

Apply oil

Coconut oil, avocado oil, and olive oil are miracles for your skin. They provide moisture deep in your skin and it lasts longer than most moisturizers. These oils also remove dead cells from your skin’s surface that create the flakes from dryness.

Buy a humidifier
