As we begin to gear up for springtime weather in northern Nevada, are you finding your skin to be in less than tip-top shape? Here’s how to add moisture back in easy, natural ways.
You don’t need to be a medical aesthetician to know: Dry, cold climates can often wreak havoc on your body’s largest organ — your skin. These tips from Renown Dermatology, Laser & Skin Care will quickly, naturally put moisture back where it belongs and relieve dry, chapped skin.
Prep Your Skin for Spring with These 11 Moisturizing Tips
- Always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen, even during winter months.
- Don’t forget to use an SPF lip balm, too.
- Heaters dry out your skin. Use a humidifier to keep moisture in the air. (And try these simple tips to make sure you’re keeping that humidifier clean.)
- If your skin is especially dry, try using a nighttime moisturizer during the day.
- Use a hydrating mask or moisturizing mask twice a week.
- Don’t forget your hands and feet. Apply a rich cream to the hands and feet at night and cover them with gloves and socks to restore moisture while you sleep.
- Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
- Try adding a hydrating serum to your morning and nighttime skin care routine to heal the skin.
- Use a gentle exfoliant to remove dry skin at least once a week. This will also help your skin absorb your moisturizer.
- Apply body oil or lotion in the shower while your skin is still damp to trap in moisture.
- Hot water dries out your skin, so turn down the temperature in the shower and bath.
