Caring for Skin on Those Windy Winter Days

Caring for Skin on Those Windy Winter Days

Check out our easy ways to tackle dry skin during the cold winter months.

Whether your skin is oily, dry or something in between, it’s never easy to care for it during the winter months. Between battling blustery winds, colder temperatures and the lack of moisture in the air, it can seem like a daunting task. Not to mention you probably don’t have time to keep up with a daily skincare regimen, so keeping that pesky dryness at bay can be a constant struggle.

Here are some simple ways to restore moisture to your skin – and they fit nicely into anyone’s busy schedule:

Rethink Your Shower

Some like it hot, but our skin doesn’t. If you’re one of those scalding-hot-shower-loving individuals, it’s time to throw in the towel.

Turn down the temperature of your shower to lukewarm and curb the time you’re spending in the steamy space. Our beloved shower time is one of the only solitary getaways in life nowadays, but your skin will thank you for dialing it back a bit.

Increase Hydration

After cleansing with a replenishing body wash in your quick, warm (not hot) shower, reach for a quick absorbing facial moisturizer while your face is still damp. For an all-in-one moisturizer that fights seven signs of aging, try Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Anti-Aging Moisturizer. It also contains Broad Spectrum SPF 30 with SolaSheer Technology™ to protect your skin against UVA/UVB rays.

Also, be sure to keep an all-over body lotion – like Olay Total Effects Body Lotion – under your bathroom sink or on the counter so you can easily lather it on after toweling off or washing your hands.

Bundle up
And lastly, don’t forget to bundle up! Whether you’re in the temperate west or the frigid east, everyone could use a little protection from the outdoor elements. Throw on a knit scarf, a pair of gloves and a brimmed hat to quickly cover up before heading out the door.
