Keeping Your Skin Healthy This Winter
Drink plenty of water: Dehydration often reflects in your skin. To help heal your dry winter skin, make sure that you’re consuming at least 8 glasses of water a day.
Consume healthy foods: Eat foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and collagen: avocados, nuts, fish, spinach, blueberries, carrots, etc. Cut back on the caffeine and drink more water.
Apply sunscreen: Although winter brings cooler weather, it’s still important to protect your skin from any sun damage. Before exposing your skin to the sun, be sure to apply a sunscreen with an SPF of (at least) 30. If you have a hard time remembering to apply sunscreen before heading outdoors, use a daily moisturizer that includes sunscreen.
Use a humidifier: Help your skin soak in added moisture while you sleep by using a humidifier.
