Skin Care Tips for Cold Weather

As temperatures plummet, many people begin to suffer from dry, itchy skin. Combine frigid temperatures with exposure to dry air from your furnace, and it's no wonder your skin is itchy and uncomfortable during the winter months. Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to feel more comfortable in your own skin as the weather cools down.

Watch Your Diet
Start by assessing your diet; are you getting enough hydration in your daily intake? Aside from drinking plenty of water (at least half your body weight in ounces per day, preferably), there are also some foods you can consume that are great for dry skin. Some of these include:
  • olive oil
  • avocado
  • fruits
  • eggs
Try incorporating more of these foods into your diet and notice the difference in your skin this winter.

Hydrate and Protect
Hydrating, moisturizing, and protecting your skin is key to combating dryness and damage. This is especially important if you live or work in a place with dry air. In addition to using an air humidifier to increase moisture content, you should also use a daily moisturizer. Consider, for example, LiftVector Facial Oil Serum from Cellbone Technology; this serum restores your skin's water balance and keeps skin properly hydrated with the added benefit of slowing down those pesky signs of aging. These and other oil-based creams help to create a protective skin barrier that will help retain water.

Also, don't forget to wear sunscreen even during the winter months; damaging UVA and UVB rays are dangerous year-round.

Exfoliate Regularly
In addition to keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized, regular exfoliation is especially important during the winter months. Specifically, exfoliating at least once a week during the winter (and more during the summer) helps to remove layers of dead, dry skin to reveal softer and healthier skin underneath. Cellbone Technology's Collagen Rejuvenating Rice ScrubCollagen Rejuvenating Rice Scrub is great for exfoliating dead skin cells and deep cleaning pores, thus allowing active ingredients to better penetrate and restore youthful complexion with each use.

With these tips, and with help from Cellbone Technology's wide range of skin care products, you can put your best skin forward this winter!
