Best Anti-Aging Tips for Winter

Aside from the very cold temperature outdoors, the dry heat indoors during winter can also be very damaging to the skin. Aside from these, the diet wherein people consume more fat, carbohydrates and calories in general can also take a toll and result to faster aging. Let’s take a look at preventive measures to prevent premature skin aging during winter. Follow these winter anti-aging tips and you will be able to delay the development of premature signs of skin aging significantly.

Switch to Creamier Skin Products

Best Anti-Aging Tips for Winter

During winter, everyone needs extra moisture since the skin dries a lot faster due to the very low temperature outside and the dry heat indoors. When the air is either cold or dry, the levels of oil and water in the skin decrease which can result in fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of skin aging to appear worse. This can also cause damage to the skin and result to faster development of signs of skin aging. Try to find “creamier” skin products that contain special ingredients to keep the skin moisturized like linoleic acid, ceramides, essential fatty acids, etc. Consult your skin care specialist to find the best skin whtening products for your skin during winter.

Don’t Stop Using Sunscreen

Studies indicate that harmful ultraviolet rays are just as strong during winter as they are during the summer. These harmful rays from the sun can promote the developments of skin aging and can even lead to cancer. Among the best winter anti-aging tips is to protect exposed skin during winter with the appropriate sunscreen. You should at least use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that is SPF 30.

Keep Your Skin Hydrated All Night

You don’t need to set an alarm and put on more moisturizer every 2-3 hours. All you need is to get a humidifier and keep it near your bed. This is because indoor heat dries up your face quickly especially during sleep wherein the moisture levels of the skin reach their lowest point. A little investment in a good humidifier is one of the most effective winter anti-aging tips that can help you stop the development of skin aging.

Avoid Very Hot Water

Very hot water when taking a bath may feel great during winter but it also negatively affects the skin’s defense. The hotter the water you use for bathing, the more dehydrating it is for the skin. It also wears down the outer layer of the skin which makes it more delicate and promotes the development of skin aging by making it more susceptible to inflammation. Instead of using hot water, you should use lukewarm water, just take a quick bath and prepare warm clothes to warm up immediately after your bath.
