The cold icey winter weather can cause wear and tear on your skins moisture and appeal. Maintaining beautiful skin during such a cold and drying period can be a challenge but is most definitely possible.  These are a few tips to maintain healthy beautiful skin in the harshness of the winter. 

 

1.) Moisturize, moisturize, MOISTURIZE! - since your skin is more prone to dryness in the winter. Moisturize often during the day to help your skin remain hydrated. 

2.) Wear Sunscreen - you may think since the weather in the winter isn't hot you won't need sunscreen when the fact of the matter is you need it more in the winter. The sun is even closer and the rays are even stronger. Wear sunscreen in thevwinter to protect your skin from the damaging UVA and UVB rays.

3.) lightly exfoliate - the cold wind in the winter dries skin out and causes your skin to produce more dead skin cells at once. It is important to lightly exfoliate for brighter, cleaner skin in the winter.

4.) Keep the showers short - a long, hot shower may seem enticing in the coldness of the winter, but these long hot showers can strip your skin of moisture and cause it to dry out. Keep your showers warm and short.
