Hydrate Your Winter Skin!

Winter weather usually brings cardigans, cute boots and snuggles by the open fire. But there’s something the colder weather can bring that I’m not so happy about... Cracked, dry winter hands! Dehydrated, cracked hands are a common result of the winter season and the source of my embarrassment until I discovered a few amazing hand saving, moisturizing products. Without further delay, here are some of my favorite skin saving tips for winter!

  • Opting to wear gloves/mittens after moisturizing your hands can help you further prevent cracked, dehydrated skin.
  • The alcohol in your hand sanitizer can also be a culprit to your dehydrated skin this winter so it's best to buy one that is alcohol free.
  • Running a humidifier during the cold months can help add moisture into the dry air caused by running the heater.
  • Super hot showers can faster strip your skin of it's moisture - instead opt for a quick warm shower.
  • Try to apply your chosen moisturizing product as soon as you step out of the shower to quickly lock in the moisture.
