Winter is finally upon us, and in Colorado that means trekking up into the mountains for skiing, snowboarding, and winter fun! Dr. Todd Becker, Rinnova’s own Harvard-trained dermatologist, has some tips for keeping your skin glowing during the fun winter months.
1. Apply Sunscreen, always!
A common misconception is that you don’t need sunscreen on cloudy days, but winter is one of the most crucial times to stay protected. Damaging UV rays can bounce off snow, causing lasting damage to unprotected skin.
2. Moisturize regularly.
Whether you’re out in the wind skiing, or at home by a fire, the winter air can dry your skin out. Make sure to moisturize twice a day, and consider switching your moisturizer and cleanser to more hydrating versions.
3. Exfoliate too!
While you should always moisturize, make sure to scrub off dead skin too! Encouraging cell turn over will keep your skin bright throughout the winter. Glycolic peels, Microdermabrasion, and manual scrubs are all good options.
We hope your skin stays bright and happy throughout this holiday season! If you ever need ideas or support on keeping your skin healthy all year round, come visit at a free consultation.
