Winter Skin Care Tips
If you're findin' that your face is dry, itchy and flaky, you can blame the winter weather for your woes. Cold temperatures and harsh winds can wreak havoc on your complexion, but Kidzworld has the tips to help you care for your skin during the long winter months - check it out!
Winter Skin Care - Cleansers
It's definitely not a good idea to use a strong cleanser during the winter months, even if you're on the oily side, cuz it'll leave you with tight, itchy skin! Use a gentle cleanser like Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, which has chamomile and vitamin E to soothe and soften your skin. Also, resist any urge to use hot water, which will dry out your skin very quickly.
Winter Skin Care - Exfoliaters
It's necessary to exfoliate your skin during the winter to get rid of all those little flakes on your face. Just remember not to scrub your skin too hard, or else it'll turn red and make you look like you got windburned while snowboarding.
Winter Skin Care - Moisturizers
Be sure to moisturize inside and out. That means you should be drinking lots of water in addition to moisturizing your skin to keep it hydrated. You may need to use a heavy-duty moisturizer to combat the dryness and flakiness. A great one to try is Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer, which fights dry, flaky skin and prevents breakouts!
Winter Skin Care - Sunscreen
Don't skip the sunscreen! It's just as important to slather it on in the winter as it is in the summer cuz you can get sunburned even when the sun isn't shining. After applying your moisturizer, rub on sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher, especially before you hit the slopes cuz the rays reflect off snow and ice, doubling your exposure to the sun.
