5 Tips to protect your skin during winter weather

Skincare is important all year long, but winter has its own special challenges: dry heated rooms, dropping temperatures, biting winds – all of which can lead to dry skin and chapped lips.

And all that cold weather makes you want to take nice long hot showers, which, unfortunately, only adds to the problem by further drying out your skin.

Help your skin survive Mother Nature’s coldest months with these tips:

1. Exfoliate

Try dry exfoliation. Grab a soft brush or dry washcloth and gently brush the skin on your arms, legs and body to remove dead skin cells. Those cells make your skin look dull, and that is the opposite of the look you want to achieve.

For your face, consider an at-home peel for a fast refresher. Using a unique mushroom enzyme, Artistry™ Intensive Skincare Renewing Peel gently and effectively exfoliates your skin, renewing its radiant look in just eight minutes.

2. Don’t skip your steps

There are no shortcuts in proper skincare. It’s important to cleanse, tone, treat and moisturize each day. Switch to a gentle cleanser in the colder months and use lukewarm water so your skin retains its essential oils.

Follow that immediately with a skin-loving toner like. Toners clear away any residue left after cleansing while properly prepping your skin for treatment products. A toner also helps seal in moisture and leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and instantly hydrated.

Next up, treat your skin with a quality serum, like Artistry Signature Select™ Personalized Serum with the hydration amplifier. Serums penetrate deep within the skin’s surface layers to repair the appearance of past damage where it’s most needed and give your skin what it needs to face the cold winter weather.

Your skin is craving extra moisture during the winter so make sure you choose a moisturizer that is right for you. Artistry Skin Nutrition™ has creams and lotions to target hydration, balancing, renewing and lifting.

3. Extra eye care

During drier months, fine lines and other aging effects can appear more visible around eyes, so invest in an ultra-hydrating eye cream like Artistry Supreme LX™ Regenerating Eye Cream. It’s an anti-aging powerhouse that will help you get more radiant-looking eyes instantly.

4. Sun protection

The sun’s damaging rays don’t have a season; they do their dirty work all year long. Make sure you apply sunscreen regularly, especially if you like winter sports. The glare from the snow will only enhance the potential for damage.

Check your product labels to ensure sun protection. Artistry Skin Nutrition™ creams and lotions come with and without SPF.

5. TLC for your hands and lips

Your hands and lips are extra susceptible to damage because they are more often exposed to the elements. Give them some extra tender-loving care to weather the winter. For your hands, try G&H Nourish+™ Hand Cream, a restorative and nourishing cream that relieves and soothes skin.

To protect your pucker, keep a lip balm handy and reapply frequently. Consider using the Artistry Studio™ Pampered Pout Lip Balm + Overnight Mask. At night it acts as an intense lip mask, restoring moisture. During the day, it instantly softens and relieves dryness, leaving your lips feeling smooth and supple.
