6 Tips To Protect Skin From Damaging Winter Cold


Winter is just around the corner, and one of the first victims of cold, blustery weather is our skin. Preventing damage to the skin is sometimes overlooked in the winter compared to the summer when more skin exposed. However, a proactive skin care regime is crucial during the winter to prevent irritation and damage from dry air, harsh wind and indoor heating.

Mannatech offers these tips to help combat skin damage from cold weather:

Healthy body, healthy skin – Don’t let dark days and cold weather keep you from maintaining an exercise program or allow your diet to slide. The healthier you are, the better your skin will look. Moderate exercise with a balanced diet will help you keep your skin glowing.

Lotion wonderland – Keep a bottle of lotion handy to keep your skin, especially your hands, moisturized and supple.

Water wellness – Part of an overall wellness regime is hydration. Just because you do not sweat in cooler weather, doesn’t mean your body isn’t thirsting for water.

Winter UV – If there is light, there are UV rays. It may not feel as harsh as the summer sun, but the winter UV rays inflict just as much damage. So continue applying sunblock when going outdoors during the daylight hours.

Heater beating – Indoor heating is notoriously dry and with that dry air comes the possibility of dry skin. To combat this problem, use skin lotions as well as a humidifier to add moisture to the air.

Hibernation time – An overall wellness program is going to be difficult without proper sleep. By getting enough rest, your body and your skin has time to recover and heal stresses brought on by cold weather.

What do you do to keep your skin healthy during the winter season?

    I’m fortunate not to have this problem! But my husband does, I will have to tell him about these tips!

  • Water and butters like Shea and coconut have always helped keep my skin moist. Winter can wreak havoc on skin.

  • I need to add a humidifier to my home. The dry heat gets my skin so itchy!

  • I definitely have humidifiers running in the winter. My entire family gets dry skin! Your tips are great!

  • I usually have cracked lips and hand skin. Water and lotion must become my new best friends!

  • In answer to your question-probably not enough! I really should try to remember that moisturizer and use it daily. The one thing I do do is drink lots of fluids (mostly water) both winter and summer.

  • Winter is very hard on my skin. We turned our heat on not long ago and already I am feeling the effects of the dry air. Thank you so much for all of these tips.

  • Awesome of you to share these tips! Winter hates my skin! I tend to break out a lot and have crocodile like skin during the cold season!
