Luckily with spring just around the corner, this is a problem you won’t have to worry about for much longer. Until then, however, make sure that you are taking the best care of your skin by following the tips listed below. Read on to learn more.

Use Sunscreen

If you are a firm believer in wearing sunscreen to the beach and pool, you can’t go wrong. But did you know that you should be wearing sunscreen even in the midst of a winter storm? Although it may not look like you are getting any sun on a cloudy or snow filled day, you are exposing your skin to the same amount of sun as that on a sunny day. By wearing a sunscreen every day you can help to avoid your skin from drying out.

Wear a Moisturizer

The best and easiest way that you can keep your skin from drying out this winter is by wearing a daily moisturizing cream. Moisturizing creams are designed to not only hydrate your skin from the inside out, but they are also designed to lock in any moisture that is also there.

Guzzle Up

Cold winter days are all about drinking a hot, steamy beverage and cuddling up next to a fire. However, people often neglect to drink water throughout the day during the winter— leaving you and your skin a bit on the dehydrated side. To make sure your skin stays smooth and hydrated for the rest of the winter, drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day. Even though this may seem like a lot of water at first, the sooner you get into the habit of drinking this much, the easier it will be.

Keep your skin moisturized and comfortable for the remainder of winter by using sunscreen, wearing a daily moisturizing, and drinking enough water. To learn more about these and other skin care tips, contact Swamy Clinic today!
