The Heat Is...OFF! 4 Tips to Care for Your Skin During the Winter

Posted on January 22, 2015 by Southern Hospitality | 0 Comments

The temperature outside may be falling, but the need to give your skin the proper care is still at an all-time high. Here are 4 tips to help your skin win the battle against Jack Frost.

Exfoliate

Cold weather brings low humidity and high winds that strips your skin of its natural moisture, leaving your skin dry and- over time- thickened and rough. To rid your skin of those excess, unwanted layers, exfoliate your skin 3 to 4 times WEEKLY. You always want to make sure to exfoliate on wet skin (particularly after soaking, bathing, or showering) to prevent causing further damage to your skin.

Moisturize

Once you remove the skin you don't want, the next step is to nourish the skin that you do want. To make your skin go from rough and scaly to supple and smooth, moisturize your skin 2 to 3 times DAILY- giving priority to the areas that are in direct exposure to the cold.

Sunscreen

Yep, you read right! Sunscreen shields you from sun's harmful ultraviolet rays that are problematic, EVEN during the winter months. A minimum SPF of 15 should be used and applied to sun-exposed skin 30 minutes before going outdoors and RE-applied every 1 to 2 hours. Hitting the slopes this winter? Then you should "up" your SPF to 30. High altitudes puts you closer to the sun, making the sun rays even more damaging to the skin. 

What the foot !?!

Socks

Avoid wearing cotton socks in freezing cold temperatures. Instead, look for socks made of synthetic materials (nylon, special polyesters, etc.) to wick away excess moisture and alleviate chilled tootsies. To learn more, check out Jack Frost Nipping at Your...Toes.

Pssst! Your Epidermis is Showing (Winter Edition)

Posted on January 12, 2015 by Southern Hospitality | 0 Comments

Coat...check! Hat and gloves...check! Scarf...check! But did you grab your sunscreen? That's right! See why applying sunscreen is a must, even when it's cold outside.

Apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15. Even when temps turn frigid, sun rays are still strong enough to be harmful against your skin. That's why it's always best to apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15. The combination of cool weather and high altitudes can put you at an even greater risk for sun damaged skin by greater than 10%. In this case, you should look for sunscreen with a SPF of 30.


Make sure all exposed skin is exposed. Even as you bundle up in layers and layers to stay warm, chances are there is still one part of your body that is still exposed...your face! Make sure to cover your face- and any other exposed skin- before braving the sun and the cold. Remember, it takes 15 minutes for your skin to fully absorb sunscreen and it should be applied at least 30 minutes before going outdoors, for maximum protection.


Reapply. Be sure to always reapply your sunscreen every 1-2 hours. Excessive sweating or engaging in outdoor activities may require more frequent applications.

Lastly, be sure that your sunscreen of choice is marked "broad spectrum" and "water resistant." Also, inspect your skin regularly for any potential changes, such as moles and lesions. If you suspect any changes, report to your physician immediately
