Winter is the time to do our best to protect our skin from extreme cold and wind burn. An interesting upside to the face masks we have been asked to wear is the extra warmth and protection they are providing for our skin!
Another thing to notice is how indoor central heating can be extremely dehydrating for our skin.
Even though UVB rays, the ones that burn your skin, are at their weakest during the winter months, they can still wreak havoc on the top layers of our skin given the right conditions (high altitudes and reflective surfaces such as snow and ice). UVA rays, the ones that penetrate deeper into our skin and cause aging, remain constant year-round and can penetrate through clouds and fog. These are reminders that skipping out on sunscreen during the winter is NOT recommended.
Learning how to layer the right products that hydrate, feed, and restore our skin’s natural acid mantle barrier will deliver a cozy equanimity that will give us skin that endures and thrives through the worst winter season.
