5 Winter Skin Tips

November is National Healthy Skin Month and now that the temperature in NYC has dipped below 40 degrees we wanted to remind you to keep your skin and lips well protected!

Here are a few tips to help your skin survive the cold:

1. Invest in a good moisturizer and use it well and often! – One that includes Ceramides is great for replenishing skin. The Cereve line of moisturizers is great!

2. Use SPF! - It might not look sunny out, but you have to protect your skin from UVA light 365 days a year. It will also prevent your skin from drying out.

3. Keep those hands covered by gloves when you are bracing the chilly outdoors! 

4. Don’t wash your skin with hot water for too long because, though it feels soothing, it will actually dry out your skin faster.

5. Don’t forget about your lips! Aquaphor Healing Ointment protects and helps heal dry chapped skin.
