Cold, harsh winds, low temperatures – not our favorite time of the year! Aside from the fact that it is quite cold, these weather conditions are never good news for your skin.
Cold weather simply sucks the life out of your skin. Humidity levels drop as the temperature drops and the drier the air, the more moisture it will pull from your skin, leaving you with dry and flaky skin. Rough skin, redness, tightness, cracking and peeling are all common during these months. Believe it or not, cold weather can also cause dehydration from losing water via respiration and since we are 40 percent less likely to feel thirsty when it is cold, you are less likely to continuously rehydrate your body with water as you would in the summer. Dehydration, as we are sure you have heard repeatedly, is never good for your body or skin.
So how can you help your skin during the cold season? By keeping it hydrated of course. Drink plenty of water even though you might feel like you don’t need it; remember that your body is losing more water than it should. A good way to provide your skin with some much needed moisture is to use a moisturizing face mask like the nügg Hydrating, Soothing, and Exfoliating Face Masks. Developed with dry skin in mind, these natural face masks will nourish your skin providing it with the moisture it needs to make it through these tough months.
