1. HYDRATION IS VERY IMPORTANT

Your skin does not like dry and cold air. In the absence of moist air, our skin dries out. Therefore, use an intensive moisturizer. Ingredients that provide intense hydration include hyaluronic acid and glycerin. For example, try Etude House Soon Jung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream and Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream EX. These moisturizes protect your skin against the cold for 24 hours.

2. SUN CARE IS JUST AS IMPORTANT

It is not the case that your skin is safe from the damage effects of the sun in the winter. Therefore protect your skin against the sun in winter. Especially if you are on the ski slopes this winter, sun care is a must have. For effective protection against UV rays, Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence offers a protection factor of SPF50.

3. DRINK ENOUGH WATER TO HYDRATE YOUR SKIN FROM THE INSIDE

Drinking enough water is essential to protect your skin from the winter weather. In the absence of moist air, our epidermis (the outermost of the three layers that make up the skin) dries out. You can avoid this by drinking a lot of water. This way you bring moisture into your skin from within.

4. YOU CAN'T DO A HOT SHOWER

A hot shower sounds tempting in winter, but it only dries out your skin further. You rinse away all important skin oils, which protect you against dehydration. After drying your skin can start to pull. That is why it is better to shower with lukewarm water. Always apply a moisturizing lotion to your skin afterward.

5. INVEST IN A HUMIDIFIER

One of the biggest reasons that your skin dries out during the winter period is because of the inevitable dry winter air. Therefore, provide a moist air. You can do this by buying a humidifier. It is a good way to help moisturize your dry skin all year round, especially during the winter period. Your skin will thank you for it.
