How To Protect Your Skin During Winter

Winter-Proof Your Skin

Cold weather and heat will dry and damage the outer barrier of your skin. The way we can prevent this is to “winter-proof” it by sealing in the moisture that those layers need to stay healthy.  Here are some things you can do to keep your skin hydrated and protected.

Here’s how to get the most out of your skincare regimen.

  • Layer products like you layer clothes in the winter
  • Use a a daily exfoliant to slough off any dead skin cells on the surface
  • Use a moisturizer to trap moisture
  • When outside, be sure to use a product with silicone and/or shea butter

Here are some product suggestions
