How To: Protect Your Skin During Winter

Even if  we see Spring’s new trends and collections everywhere, it is still cold outside–very cold! And with these temperatures our skin could become fragile and sensitive. Do you really know how to take care of your skin and keep it looking healthy during this cold time of the year?


Rule Number 1: Water, Water, Water! You’ve heard it thousand times but do you do it? Drinking water is good for your health and when you are healthy that reflects on your skin.

Wash your face with lukewarm water and not hot. I know, it’s cold and hot water feels good when you wash your face, but it could damage your skin- and I am pretty sure you don’t want that. Use a mild cream based cleanser. Gel cleansers or bar soaps could strip your skin of natural oils and make it drier and fragile. I recommend you Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser.

Don’t forget to exfoliate and apply a hydrating mask once a week.

Invest in a great moisturizer, keeping in mind your skin type. Prefer hte ones that are free of chemicals that could irritate and dry your skin. My favourite moisturizer for cold weather is Estee Lauder Hydrationist SPF15, pricey but it’s worth it.
Slather on the SPF. Even when it’s cloudy, the sun rays can be harmful for your skin. If it snows, the sun ray’s could be harmful as well, because of the reflections. Apply an SPF to all exposed areas of skin and enjoy your winter days with no worries!
Use a good moisturizing lip balm. Chapped lips could be so annoying, so remember to moisturize them often. Prefer lip balms with beeswax or shea butter. Which lip balm do I use? This winter I am totally in love with Apivita Lip Care Bee Princess (click! for the review).

What are your beauty secrets for these cold months? Do you do anything special to protect your skin?
Kisses beauties! Enjoy your day!
