How to Save Your Skin in the Winter

Although we associate cold weather with pulling on our coziest sweaters, drinking hot chocolate and curling up in bed for movie marathons, there’s a rougher side to winter we all know too well - dry skin. Nothing is worse than the look and feel of dull, dry and even flaky skin. While exposure to cold air might make it seem like avoiding skin mishaps is an impossible task, I’m here to tell you otherwise.

There are plenty of simple steps you can take to prevent and cure a case of dry, winter skin. The first and most obvious step is to increase your amount of daily moisturizer. The most common cause of dry skin during winter months is believing that your regular dosage of moisturizer is enough. On the contrary, a lack of warmth in the air means you will need more moisture than usual, so be sure to give your skin as much love as it needs!

Another tip for maintaining a glow despite the weather is to treat yourself to a facemark once a week, or as needed, to give your skin a soothing boost of moisture. For an all-natural option, we recommend Tierra face mask, a product filled with organic ingredients that will keep your skin happy during both cold and warm months.

Last, but not least, one step people seem to forget about when it comes to skincare is taking care of your body from within. Staying hydrated is equally important in the winter as it is in the summer in order to keep your skin looking healthy and fresh. Drinking enough water, eating healthy foods and taking vitamins are all small steps you can take that will add up to ensuring your skin’s satisfaction.

There you have it, Janes! With just a few easy steps, caring for your skin in the winter can be as easy as hitting snooze in the morning and curling back into your warm covers.
