There’s so much I love about the holiday season! I enjoy decorating the house for Christmas, shopping for gifts for my family & friends, and celebrating special moments with the ones I love. However, one thing I don’t love about this season is the cold weather. Today, I will be sharing my top 7 simple & easy tips for keeping my skin healthy during these cold winter days.

7 Tips for Healthy Winter Skin

1. Drink Water: There’s nothing more important to overall health and wellness than drinking enough water on a daily basis. During this time of the year, I really enjoy several cups of hot tea during the day. Sometimes, when I want a refreshing, healthy drink, I’ll add some ice & frozen fruit to a glass of water. The fruit adds a lovely boost of flavor to the drink!

2. Apply Sunscreen: Even when the temperatures are low, it’s important to apply a sunscreen every day. The sun’s rays are still damaging to the skin during fall and winter, so it’s essential to protect the skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays.

3. Keep Bath Water Lukewarm: During the cold winter days, it may be tempting to come indoors and soak in a hot bath. However, the hot water can be very drying to the skin. Avoid super hot water when bathing or showering. Furthermore, keep showers & baths short to minimize the drying effect to the skin.

4. Use a Humidifier: During this time of the year, we often have our heating systems powered on for much of the day. This means that hot, dry air is being added to our environments constantly. To combat that dryness, invest in a humidifier that will add some more moisture to the air. This moist air is good for the lungs and the skin.

5. Apply Neutrogena Body Oil: To combat dryness during the cold winter days, I love using Neutrogena Body Oil. This light sesame oil instantly gets absorbed by shower-damp skin, effectively sealing in moisture! I love that this product doesn’t cause a greasy after-feel!

I keep a bottle of Neutrogena Body Oil in my bathroom so that I can apply some after showering, bathing, sunning, or shaving. This dermatologist-tested body oil leaves my skin soft & silky and effectively protects against moisture loss! Featuring a light oil extracted from pure white sesame seeds, this Neutrogena product helps to soothe the mind and body!

6. Moisturize the Hair: To keep my hair looking soft and supple throughout the year, I like to whip up an easy DIY Hair Mask in my kitchen. All I need is one part coconut oil, one part honey and one part lemon juice. This moisturizing mask really softens and moisturizes my hair.

7. Use Gloves to Lock In Moisture: My hands get so dry during the bitter cold days of winter, so I like to occasionally slip on some moisturizing gloves that lock in the hydration. I will often do my manicure afterward and then place a rejuvenating mask on my eyes. A few simple steps really create a lovely at-home spa experience.

  1. I never thought sunscreen was really needed during the winter unless we were up on the ski slopes. Always thought with the sun so dimmer during the winter it wasn’t really needed. Drinking plenty of water to keep a person hydrated is so important. Most people don’t drink nearly enough water. Moisturizing every aspect of your body is so important to over all good health.

  2. You’ve shared really great tips on caring for skin in the winter. My skin is dry year round, even more so in the colder months so these are easy, practical tips that I can apply for (hopefully!) better skin this season.

    Your tip on sunscreen is one I often overlook – but am reminded to be diligent with just as we would in the summer. The hair mask is a definite for me as well – this is another area I normally think of as being a ‘summer issue,’ but the tip and hair mask recipe you shared have reminded me to not overlook taking care of my hair as the temperature and humidity drop.

  3. I suffer from extremely dry skin, especially now that we’ve turned the heat on. I love Neutrogena and need to check out this oil. I’m sure it would be incredibly helpful.

  4. These are great tips. I need to do something. The last few weeks my hand and legs have looked terrible.

    My hubby saw the skin on my legs and freaked out.

    I usually sleep in gloves with lotion on my hands during Winter.

    I’ve never tried the oil and I need to buy a new humidifier.

    Thanks.

  5. These tips will be so helpful. I struggle with dry skin so much in the winter months. I’ve tried a lot of different lotions and I drink a lot of water, but that doesn’t seem to help all of the time.

  6. I have never thought about the bath water temperature as far as protecting my skin during the winter but it makes sense. I will have to use these tips because here in Iowa the weather has gotten so cold and dry, I need all of the tips I can get!

  7. I cannot live without a humidifier….and a salt lamp! Also, I exfoliate my face and body often, and douse myself in coconut oil!!!

  8. Those body oils really are miracle workers! I use and love them too! And drinking tons of water is so important!

I Love to Hear From You!
