Winter Survival Guide: How To Fight Wrinkles

With lower humidity, higher winds and colder temperatures, winter weather is not our friend, especially to our skin. It often leads to dryness and roughness, in addition to making our skin more susceptible to damage. During exposure to extreme temperatures, your skin loses water, ultimately making it dry, flaky and wrinkled. Although winter weather is inevitable, there are ways to help protect your skin from it’s damaging effects and to help keep your skin healthy and radiant. 

1. Apply Sunscreen

Many believe that you only need to UV protection in the summer, when the temperatures are high and your exposure to UVA/UVB rays increases. Although during the winter, the strength of the sun’s UVB rays slightly decrease, the UVA rays remain constant throughout the seasons. Snow can also reflect up to 80% of the sun’s rays, making a broad-spectrum sunscreen just as essential in the winter, as it is in the summer. Applying sunscreen should be the final step in your morning skin care regimen!

2. Moisturize, Hydrate, Repeat

As stated in last week’s blog, Hydration vs. Moisturizing, moisturizers and hydrators both tackle the importance of making sure our skin is getting the proper amount of moisture, in order to prevent environmental damage, signs of aging, and of course, dryness. It is important to use both in order to maintain healthy skin, especially in the dryer air. Choosing a moisturizer or hydrator that addresses our specific skin type and sensitivity level is important, in order to give our skin exactly what it needs. 

3. Check Your Products’ Ingredients

Some skin care products contain harmful ingredients, such as added colors, synthetic fragrances and other irritants that can dry out your skin. It is important to read the label on your products, in order to make sure you are using what is best for your skin, especially during the winter months. 

4. Even More Hydration?

Aside from hydrating your skin with topical products, drinking as much water as you possibly can will also help keep your skin cells hydrated. 

5. Protect From The Inside

Supplements and Vitamins are designed to give your body the key nutrients to nourish your skin from the inside out. H&H Science’s Anti-Aging Vitamins help promote skin radiance and helps to maintain a more youthful and healthy appearance. In addition to providing antioxidant protection, the anti-aging benefits of our Anti-Aging Vitamin vary, and may include: supporting collagen and elastin production, increasing or normalizing skin cell turnover, providing anti-inflammatory benefits, speeding the healing process of blemishes, hydrating and plumping the skin, and protection from harmful UV rays.
