Why It’s Important to Protect Your Skin During the Winter

January 04, 2017

We’re all familiar with protective measures we should take for our skin in the summer. From wearing hats, sunscreen, and cleansing regularly, we all have a pretty good idea of what we should be doing to take care of our facial skin in the summer. But what about in the winter? Are you as familiar with how to protect your skin in the winter as you are with the summer? Here is everything you need to know on how to protect your skin during the winter.

Our first tip may surprise you. Yes, even in the winter, you should still wear sun screen. This is because UV rays are strong in the winter. If you don’t wear sunscreen, you may accelerate the aging of your skin, and see more wrinkles or fine lines. Even more importantly, if you don’t wear sunscreen you may be at risk of skin cancer. When outdoors and exposing your skin to sunlight, make sure you’re wearing an SPF of at least 30. You may also want to consider using a lip balm that has SPF as well.  

Our second tip comes naturally in the winter – make sure you’re moisturizing! Harsh, cold winter air and constant exposure to dry, heated indoor air can wreak havoc on the natural balance of your skin. In the winter, make sure you’re using a moisturizer twice a day – in the morning, and at night. In the winter, you may need a more hydrating moisturizer than you use in the summer. Speak to your IG Beauty expert to ensure that you’re using the right moisturizer for your skin.

Our third and final tip is to maintain your skin as best as possible with facials. Our Multi-Vitamin facial restores the natural glow you saw from your skin in the summer. It enhances radiance,  smoothness, and makes the skin appear younger and smoother. By using a blend of vitamins, this facial is highly effective to remove full surface sells and stimulate the growth of new, healthy, and radiant looking cells. The facial improves the skin’s elasticity and tone. We typically recommend 4 facial sessions to achieve the best results. We have several other facial treatments that can help protect your skin in the winter. Simply stop by IG Beauty and we will help you determine which facial is right for you.
