Although this winter has been mild compared to the Michigan winters that most of us know, you might still be noticing that the cold, dry air has your skin feeling dull, itchy, or even painful. Fortunately, with the right skin care routine, it’s more than possible to give your skin the attention it needs to be radiant in even the frostiest winter.
Here are our top suggestions for nourishing your skin this winter:
As a first step toward restoring your skin this winter, it’s important to find a topical moisturizer that works with your skin type. Be sure to read the ingredients to avoid parabens and other toxic chemicals.
Nourish your skin with healthy foods.
In addition to moisturizing externally, adding foods that are rich in omega-3s to your diet can help your body moisturize itself from the inside out. Fatty fish, nuts, seeds, and avocados can all keep your skin healthy this winter. Be sure to drink lots of water, too, to keep your skin hydrated.
Visit your skin care professional.
Your skin care professional can give you advice tailored to your unique skin care needs, including helping you find the best moisturizer and deciding when and how to exfoliate. A skin care professional can also provide a variety of effective services including peels and deep moisturizing treatments.
