What your skin needs through spring, summer, fall and winter
Many of us think that our skin can take a break from a daily moisturizing routine during certain seasons. We know how tough winter can be on our skin but summer seems like a breeze, so many of us swap lotions and creams for sunscreen. For the best skin possible, it’s important to keep a moisturizing routine all year round. Not only does a regular routine help prevent dryness and itching, it also helps prevent premature signs of aging. Who doesn’t want that?
Why apply 12 months of the year?
Every season presents a new challenge for the skin. The harsher temperatures of winter can lead to dehydrated, rough and depleted skin, if not taken care of. Summer presents a different set of challenges for the skin. Sun damage is a serious concern during the warmer months and can cause fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. While we love to cool down by the pool, chlorine strips our hair and skin of its natural oils. While the rays feel good on our face, it’s important to protect skin from the sun’s damaging effects.
Spring and fall are transitional seasons and it’s important to nurture skin through this change. Remember, the sun is always on us and even though the skies may be gray, UV damage is still possible. Keeping up a regular moisturizing routine throughout the seasons will help ensure your skin is nourished, healthy-looking, and soft.
Ditch The Itch
Have you ever noticed that skin can become dry, cracked or flakey? Since the body is made up of mostly water, a lack of moisture will leave skin dehydrated, causing irritable and scaly skin. Gold Bond Ultimate Soothing Lotion and Cream protect and relieve skin irritation from itching, dryness, roughness and rashes that a lack of moisture can cause.
For some, conditions like Eczema can create further dryness and irritability to skin. Using a special moisturizer on a daily basis like Gold Bond Ultimate Eczema Relief Cream will help you kiss scaly skin good-bye.
When is skin most vulnerable to moisture loss?
There are several times during the year when skin experiences extreme moisture loss and not all of them are Mother Nature’s fault. One of the more serious risks to skin in the cold weather is deprivation of water. This is the primary cause for scaly, dry skin and, if not taken care of, can lead to permanently depleted capillaries and inflammation. An intensive moisturizer like Gold Bond Ultimate Moisturizing Skin Therapy Lotion contains Aloe to help soothe and nurture dry problem skin for up to 24 hours.
Summer is equally as depleting- as our body releases moisture to cool our internal temperatures. The hot temperatures also mean that we sweat more and shower more.
While many of us want to escape during the cold and explore during the warm weather, travel also takes a toll on skin. So while you think you’re jumping on a plane to save your skin from winter’s harsh temperatures – airplanes lack humidity, which can cause dry skin. Make sure to apply extra lotion the night before you hop on a plane and head for the tropics.
When’s the best time to moisturize?
Every night as we relax and drift off to sleep, our bodies lose a lot of water. As our body goes into repair mode, a good moisturizer can help with the repair process. Gold Bond Ultimate Restoring Skin Therapy Lotion can help restore depleted, dull skin with seven nourishing moisturizers, three vitamins and CoQ10 help to nurture skin while you sleep.
Gold Bond Ultimate’s intensive moisturizers are proven to nourish, hydrate and smooth the roughest and driest skin. The result is irresistibly soft, smooth and touchable skin, 24 hours a day and all year round.
