Ways to Keep Skin Hydrated and Healthy {during cold winter weather}

Protecting your skin from the elements can be quite tricky. Whether it’s the heat and sun of summer, or the cold and wind of winter, your face is always being battered by the environment. Often times the skin on your face can look dry, dull, and even gray. Here are some tips to revive, moisturize, and protect the skin on your face to allow it to show its healthy glow.  Thank you Block Island Organics for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. 

Stay Hydrated

It’s quite obvious in the summer and warmer temperatures to stay hydrated.  However, it is often forgotten that you need to stay hydrated in colder and dryer temperatures. Here in New York during the winter, the temperature often hovers around the freezing point.  Many people don’t realize that even though it may be cold out and you don’t sweat,  you are losing moisture through your skin and lungs with every breath you take. If you are exerting yourself, you can be losing a large amount of moisture and not even realize it. Losing this moisture can often leave you dehydrated without even knowing it. This dehydrates the skin as well, leaving it looking drawn and wrinkly.  It is essential that you hydrate and drink water. Water will keep your skin looking plump, resilient, bright, and healthy.



Stay Moisturized and Use Sunscreen Everyday

Often times in colder weather, the air is very dry.  My earth-science-teacher husband Mike, often gives me lessons on how colder air cannot call very much moisture. 🙂  This lack of moisture in the air can often dry out skin leaving it red and chapped if not protected. Since it is colder weather, many people don’t realize that that sun can still damage your skin with UV rays. The sun still is out all day!  If you are spending time where theirs Protecting your skin during the day with a good moisturizer that includes sunscreen is super important to keep in your skin healthy.  A really great choice for an all natural, cruelty- free moisturizer is one from Block Island Organics.
