With all the dropping temperatures around the province this week it’s hard to keep your skin protected! Lotions and moisturizers become our best friends for the next few months, and sometimes even they don’t help!
Check out a few tricks below to beat the winter chill!
- Invest in a humidifier for your home over the winter months – fireplaces and other heat sources can actually dry out your skin and lead to dry nose, throat, and chapped lips! Lowering the heat in your home can also help!
- Cut back on the time you spend in the shower and try using lukewarm water as opposed to hot! Similar to being exposed to the fireplace for too long, a shower that’s too hot and too long can dry out your skin as well
