These Top 5 tips are your secret weapon for healthy looking skin this winter
As the temperature drops, as it will in the upcoming months, so will your skin’s ability to retain moisture. Depleted and dehydrated skin can be itchy and uncomfortable but with a few simple tips, you can nurture and replenish your skin through the long days of winter.
- The warm indoors
It’s tempting to turn up the heat and snuggle in after an active day in sub-zero temperatures. However indoor heat is very drying to the skin. A humidifier will help to keep moisture in the air but don’t forget to keep up a daily skin care regime that will replenish and hydrate dry skin. Gold Bond Ultimate daily lotions have a unique blend of seven moisturizers and three vitamins that adapt to your skin’s needs all day long. A daily and gentle replenishing routine using Gold Bond Ultimate lotions is proven to keep skin soft, smooth and touchable all winter long.
- The gloves are… on.
The skin on your hands is thin, which can make it harder to keep them moisturized. Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Hand Cream moisturizes dry problem skin, eliminates roughness, and nourishes hands. This non-greasy, long-lasting formula ensures that your hands will stay smooth and soft, even in the harshest of climates. Once applied, be sure to further protect your hands by throwing on the gloves when you’re heading outdoors.
- Softening those soles
It’s easy to forget your feet after sandal season has passed. Who sees them anyway? But dry, cracked heels aren’t just unsightly; they can be a cause of great discomfort. Put your feet on a weekly exfoliating schedule and follow up with a moisturizer that will hydrate and replenish them for healthier- looking heels. Gold Bond Ultimate Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief Foot Cream provides great relief for dry soles due to poor circulation – especially through the winter months.
- A luxurious lukewarm lather
It’s tempting to warm up and unwind in a hot shower after a day of fun in the cold outdoors, but hot water depletes moisture from your skin head to toe. Hot baths and showers are one of the biggest culprits of moisture loss to hair and skin. A lukewarm shower or bath with oatmeal or baking soda can help soften rough skin. To seal in moisture, apply a lotion immediately after your shower or bath. Gold Bond Ultimate lotions absorb rapidly so you can slip into those cozy pj’s right away.
- Keeping kissable lips
Winter can be rough on every part of your body but especially your lips, since they receive regular exposure to the elements. Keeping lips moisturized can be a real challenge during the colder months. It’s important to treat them to a skincare regime as well. Gently exfoliate dry or flaky lips by brushing them with a toothbrush or facecloth and follow up with a lip balm or moisturizer. To keep lips soft and healthy throughout the day, moisturize repeatedly as needed.
