Protecting Your Skin during Cold Winter Months

            Dry, winter air can be very brutal on the skin. The cold weather can leave your skin feeling dry, irritated, and itchy.
Lotion Review has compiled a list of simple yet effective ways to protect your skin during the cold winter months, to help keep it healthy and feeling supple and moist all season long:

1.     Use a humidifier when you are indoors to keep the air moist.

2.     Take showers instead of baths. Use warm water instead of hot water and shower for a shorter amount of time.                                                                                                                               
3.    It is best to apply moisturizer immediately after showering while your skin is still somewhat damp. This will lock in the extra moisture that you received from the shower.

4.    Apply moisturizer in the morning and at night before you go to bed. If possible, also reapply moisturizer once in the middle of your day.                                                                                    

5.    Use facial cleansers that are less harsh on your skin. Ingredients to look for are:  Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, and Essential Oils.

6.    Drink lots of water to keep yourself and your skin hydrated. Try and cut down on beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol. 

7.    If you spend a lot of time indoors, do not over-rely on the heater. It can dry out your skin quickly, so it’s best to wear layers to stay warm.

8.    When you’re outdoors, cover your skin as much as possible. Wear gloves to protect your hands. Wear a hat or hooded jacket to protect the sides of your face and wrap a scarf to protect the lower part of your face.

  1. It's funny because the lotion that is pictured with this article is actually my favorite moisturizer to use year around! I never let myself run out of DS Angel, and even my husband (who does not tan) uses it daily and loves it because it is so hydrating. If you haven't tried Angel as your tan extending moisturizer, I would definitely recommend it! It smell amazing also- Kiwi Pear is the fragrance.

  2. This stuff is hands down the BEST moisturizer I have ever used. It is super hydrating and really locks in moisture. I have also been told that it has even helped clear up skin irritations. The smell is awesome and really allows you to feel clean all day.

  3. I have had several clients have a slight breakout while using DS Angel. Personally it is my favorite extender, but I dont sell to clients who have sensative skin.
