5 top tips to look after your skin in the winter

Just like that, the warm weather has come and gone. It’s time to say goodbye to sundresses and tank tops and say hello to sweaters and scarves. Winter is here and the cold dry air that comes along with these months can leave your skin feeling dry, itchy and irritated. Even though we won’t be showing as much skin during the winter, it is still important to care for your skin.

Yes, you probably won’t be reaching for your waxes and hair removal creams as frequently, but sometimes it is still nice to have silky smooth legs underneath all of those layers. If you are looking to do some winter waxing, you must keep your skin moisturized. Here are a few tips if you’re looking to use Veet® products to wax in the colder months.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

Keep your skin moisturized by moisturizing morning and night. Look for products with ingredients like aloe and vitamin E.

Consider getting a humidifier

Did you know that it is not just the outdoor air that can cause your skin to get dry? Heat sources like furnaces can take a toll on your skin too. A humidifier will help return moisture to the air and your skin.[1]

Don’t forget to exfoliate

Exfoliating weekly will help prepare your skin for moisturizing. Make sure your exfoliant is gentle, though!

Wear your layers

When going outside during cold months, it is important to stay bundled up as the cold air can be very harsh on our skin. Try wearing a scarf around your neck to protect your face from the chilly wind. It’s also a good idea to limit the amount of time you spend outside during the cold months.

Keep your diet in check

Yes, your diet really does play a big role in your skin’s health! Be sure to drink plenty of water and try to eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines are very high in omega-3 fatty acids. If you don’t eat fish, you can also get it from things like walnut and flaxseed.[2]

By following these tips, your skin will be healthy and prepared for waxing. Even though your legs may not be exposed a lot in the colder months, why not give them a wax occasionally? You never know what you might get up to! Also, these months are a great time to focus on the hair on your face. Why not use some of our Precision Wax products, like the Veet® Face Precision Wax Care, Precision Wax & Aftercare Cream. Don’t forget to patch test all products and read the instructions closely beforehand.
