As we move through fall and transition into winter, we need to step up our skin care routine. Seasonal drops in temperature and humidity cause our skin’s moisture levels to drop and dull, dry skin can result. Heaters, cold winds, and hot baths or showers also quickly dehydrate and irritate our skin. Finally, movingback and forth between cold and warm environments in winter and resultant dry, irritated skin can increase risk for chronic skin conditionssuch as rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis. Thus, our cold weather skin care routine should be all about protection, deep hydration, and rejuvenation.
