Keeping Skin Beautiful During Winter Weather

Even though we live in warm central Texas, we still experience some colder days and nights during the winter months. Colder, drier weather and artificial heating can really take a toll on your skin. But you don’t have to live with uncomfortable dry skin all winter long! Here are a few ways to combat the wintery weather until springtime comes:

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Drier winter air combined with artificial heating can really deplete the skin’s moisture. If you use a lighter, water-based moisturizer in the spring and summer, it might be necessary to switch to a richer product in the winter. Products with non-clogging oil bases like avocado oil or almond oil can create a soothing protective layer on the skin that helps lock in moisture. Keeping a humidifier in your bedroom at night can also help replenish your skin. And don’t forget to treat your hands and feet! Stop in for our super-moisturizing paraffin wax treatment, included with our Spa Manicure and available as an add-on for our Spa Pedicure.

Don’t Skimp on Sunscreen

Just because you’re not hitting the lake doesn’t mean you can forget about your SPF! Using a daily sunscreen is an essential part of protecting your skin all year round. In fact, some studies have suggested that we are more prone to skin damage in colder, cloudier weather, simply because we think we don’t need to protect with SPF! Luckily, the SkinCeuticals line of sunscreens offer excellent protection from the sun’s rays all year round. We love the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. It goes on sheer and boosts your skin’s natural radiance while keeping you protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
