Cold winds, low temperatures - just general dryness in the air that comes with the chillier months – these can all take a toll on our skin.

Each of our skin types is unique to us as individuals, but just because of the nature of winter, we could all be susceptible to a level of dryness not usually present in milder climates.

This means, that as the air turns icier, you may need to add slightly stronger skin care options in the dryness-fighting element of your skincare regime.

There are a number of measures that can be put into place to protect your skin from the cold, while you wrap-up, get the heaters out, and add more blankets atop the duvet.

At Vaseline, we have those measures. But before we chat through some of them, take a look at some winter hacks to reinforce your skincare plan, when things get frosty.

What are the top Winter skin care tips and hacks?

Here is your quick round of top tips on how to keep your skin feeling supple and good in winter:

Don’t skip the sunscreen

We all know that the sun is just as UV intense in winter as it is in summer. In fact, even in overcast or cool weather, sunburn and skin damage is still a very real issue.

Remember, don’t neglect the sunscreen. Keep applying every day, even when it’s cold and cloudy.

Don’t neglect your lips

Your lips are a part of your body that is particularly exposed. What’s more, the skin there is sensitive, so cold weather and the dry air that comes with, can do a real number on them, if you don’t keep them moisturised. And we all know, dry-chapped lips can be a real pain.

Try the Vaseline range of lip therapy, for a soft, supple, beautiful pout all winter long.

Control indoor temperatures

In winter, the air is dry. But, as we all huddle inside more, and fire up those heaters and fireplaces, they do a lot to sap even more of the vital moisture that keeps our skin hydrated, out of the atmosphere.

The trick, then, is to warm up those rooms, and then bring the temperature down to a more controlled state, for longer. This will help you maintain some atmospheric moisture, indoors.
