You are protected by your skin, the largest organ in your body. However, did you know that your skin is also responsible for regulating your body temperature and maintaining hydration?

Never underestimate the importance of keeping your skin healthy. Healthy skin protects you from the elements and improves your body temperature and hydration.

Winter is a challenging time for our skin. Dry, cracked skin can result from cold weather and wind. When we don’t take care of our skin, it can become inflamed and infected if we don’t take precautions.

It’s not the end of the world! Keeping your skin healthy and happy all winter is as easy as doing a few simple things.

What’s National Healthy Skin Month?

November is National Healthy Skin Month, the perfect time to take a closer look at your skin health. This month aims to promote skin care and education and raise awareness of skin conditions and diseases.

During National Healthy Skin Month, take some time to focus on your skin health. Taking care of your skin can help prevent wrinkles, sun damage, and skin cancer. So make a commitment to your skin health this month and beyond!

Winter Skin Care: How to Keep It Healthy

Make sure you winterize your skincare routine: Winterizing your skincare routine is one of the best ways to protect your skin during winter. To protect your skin from the cold weather, you should switch out your light, summertime moisturizers for richer, thicker creams and ointments. Winter is also a good time to exfoliate. Dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, resulting in a dull, uneven complexion from exfoliation.

Protect your skin from the elements: You should protect your skin from the sun, wind, and cold when you’re outside. Cover your face with a scarf or mask outdoors, and apply sunscreen before going out. Be careful to avoid hot air blasts, whether from heaters or hair dryers. 

Keep your skin hydrated: Winter is the perfect time to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and applying a hydrating moisturizer regularly. Additionally, you can add extra moisture to your home’s air by using a humidifier if your skin feels extra dry.
