1: Stay hydrated
With hot temperatures during the summer months, it’s natural to automatically drink more fluids. Don’t lessen your water intake just because it’s getting cooler outside. You might not be craving a tall glass of ice water like you would in summer, but try room temperature water or a refreshing cup of warm tea to keep yourself hydrated.
2: Take care of your lips
Chapped lips in winter are a downer. They can be painful when exposed to extreme cold temperatures, and chapping makes it harder for any cosmetics to stay in place and look good. Make sure to protect your lips with a moisturising balm that includes SPF.
3: Wear sunscreen
Just because it’s not warm outside doesn’t mean there aren’t UV rays in the air. So, don’t skimp on the SPF just because it’s winter. If you need extra moisture in your winter skin care regimen, look for moisturising sunscreens or wear your sunscreen over your existing moisturiser.
4: Don’t forget your hands
Just like your lips, the skin on your hands is thin and delicate and can be susceptible to chapping in cold weather. Keep your hands moisturised with hand cream, and reapply throughout the cold days. To make it convenient, carry travel-sized hand cream wherever you go – keep some at your office, in your car and in your bag.
5: Consider changing products based on season
Your skin care needs may change drastically between seasons. That’s particularly true if you live in an area with extreme temperature fluctuations between summer and winter. Only you know what feels good on your skin. If you have skin that experiences more dryness in winter than other seasons, for example, you might consider switching to moisturising formulas in everything from cleansers to cosmetics.
