It is that time of the year when the cool air blows pasts your skin and somehow creates goosebumps (for some), eczema (for others), or dry and cracked skin (for many). It may not be entirely understood as to what causes this. For some, the cold whether means a simple adjustment by adding on a few layers of clothes. For others, the cold creates an the opportunity for dry and cracked skin to take over. If left unattended, dry skin (whether it is visible or not), leads to accelerated damage and ultimately accelerated aged skin.
To fight the cycle of damaged and dry skin you must get ahead of the curve. Prevention is the key when it comes to treating your skin. The cold whether should only have a small affect on your skin. The easiest way to break the cycle is to create a regimen for yourself. It is said that it takes about 30 days to create a habit. Every morning, make it a point to moisturize your skin, face, and hands. Even if you regularly wash your hands during the day (sometimes required for work), that extra time of healing (in the early part of the day) for your skin will go a long way. Think of it like breaking fast in the morning. Your body may not let you know that your skin is dry, but it is up to you to let your inner self know that you must do something awesome to protect your skin's health.
So, to conclude, make moisturizing your skin an essential part of your morning routine. Your skin will begin to heal and you will see the difference over time. If you are in need of a skin moisturizer, we recommend a high quality body butter that will leave your skin smooth (not greasy), and smelling good.
