It may be hard to believe, but we’re starting a new year! The harshest winter months lie ahead and this is when it can seem like you’re fighting to keep your skin looking and feeling great.

The winter season is one of the busiest seasons of the year and it may seem like you don’t have the time to give your skin the attention it deserves. Not this winter! Take the time to treat your skin with the extra attention it needs against the cold, dry air. You’ll thank yourself when your skin is glowing like the holiday lights this season. Read more to find out just how important skin care is, especially in the months to come.

Your Skin Will Dry Up Without Proper Care

It’s important to keep your skin moisturized no matter the season, but with the cold air biting at your skin, not to mention the lower humidity levels, it becomes even more crucial to moisturize during winter. No one wants to have dry and flaky skin, but that’s what could happen if you neglect to care for your skin. Not only does dry skin just not feel or look good, but it can also lead to wrinkles appearing.

Even drinking water should be an important part of how you keep your skin moisturized. There’s nothing worse than having dry and chapped lips when you’re trying to enjoy the season’s festivities. Water is so important for maintaining healthy skin. So much so, clean water is something that our Douglas J family is passionate about supporting for our communities.

Everyone Has a Different Skin Type

Do you have a friend who seems to go through winter without using any type of moisturizer and somehow always manages to have flawless skin? If you do, then don’t feel bad if you can’t get away with that no effort regimen. Your skin type won’t be the same as your friend’s and most people need to put in that extra care to keep their skin glowing. You may already naturally have dry skin and you might have to put in even more care to your skin care routine during the dry winter months. Don’t compare you skin journey to anyone else because yours is unique to what your skin needs.

Skin Care is an Ongoing Process

You might be acknowledging the importance of making skin care a necessity of your life, but maybe you’re questioning if you really need to care for it everyday. After all, winter is a busy time and it would be so much simpler if you could just apply at the beginning of the season and call it good. This is not the case! Keeping up a daily skin care routine is a must if you want to ensure that your skin stays looking healthy when the cold weather comes rolling in. Your skin can do amazing things like shedding itself to make room for new skin. That means that even if your skin is looking moisturized at the beginning of winter, it won’t stay that way throughout the season. It’s not easy making sure that your skin gets the treatment it needs, but it’s more than worth it. Take a look at some of our favorite Aveda™ products for hydrating dry skin here!
