While the sun has taken a little vacation we are left with cold and bitter days. It’s that time of year when we wear three pairs of socks instead of one and we have a great excuse not to leave bed. But it is also that time of year when our skin suffers the most if we do not take care of it.

What can you do to protect you skin from cold weather?

Central heating = dry skin – Heating makes the air dry, you should buy a humidifier or if possible switch off your heating during the night. We alway have massive bottles of water (about seven around the house) and cut the top off and leave it open. The water will evaporate and moisten the air.

Eat more vitamins – Your body needs more vitamins during this period. You should eat more fresh vegetables and fruits.

Don’t fall for the lazy trap – Winter always gives us the excuse to do nothing but try your hardest to avoid this. You need lots of fresh air and movement, do not deprive your body from fresh oxygen and physical activity.

Less alcohol more water – Limit the amount of alcohol you drink and try to drink at least eight glasses of water per day because the hydration of our skin will moisturize itself from within.
