Fall and Winter Skin Care By Karen

chapped

I have a love/hate relationship with fall/ winter. I love the changing of the leaves, pumpkin spice everything, and getting to see the family for the holidays. Then there’s eggnog, decorating of the Christmas tree, and my middle daughter, Mary’s Birthday! But I hate the cold weather because my skin gets dry and chapped. Your skin routine is important year round but now that the weather is changing, your skin routine is almost a necessity .  There are a lot of great products/tips to help keep your skin glowing throughout the fall/winter season.

1). Skin must be hydrated!!!  Drink 8  8 oz. glasses of water.

2). After you shower put on moisturizer. My Dermatologist recommends   Product Detailshttps://www.amazon.com/CeraVe-Moisturizers-Moisturizing-Cream-Ounce/dp/B001V9SXXU/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1480890687&sr=1-1&keywords=cerave

3). Eat foods rich in coconut oil and fatty fish.  It moisturizes the skin from within.

4). Put on a daily sunscreen,( even in the winter) when you are out in the sun to reduce risk of skin cancer and ageing.

5). Get enough sleep. Not enough sleep can make your skin look dull.

6). Reduce pore size by applying a mask made of Honey!

7). Talk with your Doctor if certain skin conditions persist, for example psoriasis or rashes or when you do your monthly breast exam also do a skin check.  Examine your skin for irregular moles or suspicious blemishes. It could save your life!

8). Read the label on what you put on your skin. Some products contain alcohol which can have a drying affect on your skin. For those that have acne: Don’t use products that irritate your skin. Talk to your Doctor about alternatives. I always try to find products that same sensitive skin!

9). Exercise ! It opens your pores.

10). Let your skin breath. If we have on make up all the time our skin doesn’t have time to breath. Never go to bed with makeup on!

Take time to care for your skin!  Unfortunately, no one stays young forever. And how you treat your skin now- will affect it later. Happy Holidays!
