Brrr, it’s getting cold outside! Do you know what that means for your skin? Winter weather can be extremely harsh on our skin. Let’s review how to prevent the annual damage.

During the warmer months we tend to use lighter products. Summer months have high humidity levels leaving less of a need for heavy hydration. Colder climates are dryer and that equates to dryer skin. What can happen to dry skin? Redness, irritation and wrinkles to name a few unwelcomed and undesirable skin woes.

Not to worry as there are simple lifestyle hacks to help avoid the effects of winter skin.

Short List of Things to Avoid

These few precautions can go a long way in protecting your skin this season. And, these tips can be money savers too!

Heat. Central heating, wood-burning stoves, space heaters and fireplaces all reduce humidity and dry your skin.

Hot baths and showers. Taking long, hot showers or baths can dry your skin. So can frequent swimming, particularly in heavily chlorinated pools.

Harsh soaps and detergents. Many popular soaps, detergents and shampoos strip moisture from your skin as they are formulated to remove oil.” (1)

Say Yes to This Short List

Protect yourself from the elements. Our parents knew what they were talking about. Wear the hat, gloves and protective clothing when outside in the colder temperatures.

SPF - Sunscreen is essential year round. Everyone needs to wear sunscreen. Men, women and children. Don’t forget your lips. Look for lip balms that have an SPF in them. Make sunscreen protection a daily habit.

Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. This is also essential year round. What changes season to season is the type of moisturizer best for the current climate.

Just looking for Hyaluronic Acid to boost your skin’s moisture?  Having sufficiently hydrated skin can help with the following:

Reduce the appearance of wrinkles - Hyaluronic Acid expands when retaining moisture, giving your skin a plumper, more youthful appearance as time goes on.

Hyaluronic Acid is also beneficial to your body’s natural collagen production, as water is necessary for this protein to be made.

Reduce skin dryness and the discomfort often associated with skin dryness - The amount of Hyaluronic Acid we produce on our own lessens with age, leaving your skin dry, dull, and sensitive over time. This kind of dryness can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Reduce the appearance of skin redness – There are many reasons why we suffer from skin redness. The added moisture from Hyaluronic Acid has a natural calming effect on the skin and can be helpful in visibly reducing skin redness and irritation.

Plexaderm Hyaluronic Moisturizer was formulated to help replenish the levels of Hyaluronic Acid in your skin. It works by capturing the moisture from the air and retaining it within your skin. This increases hydration and promotes healthy skin elasticity, resulting in a fuller and smoother appearance. Our formula is cruelty-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, dye-free, and mineral oil-free, making it suitable for all skin types.

The choice is yours. Just do yourself a favor and keep skin care and moisturizing a priority.
