Taking care of your skin is so truly and deeply important. You might think that it does not matter, that it will grow back healthy over time. But firstly, huh? What does that even mean? Why would
you not want to take care of it starting now? I mean, your skin is basically the first thing that anyone sees when they look at you. If you want to make a good first impression and look your best, you best be looking good. So take care of your skin, no matter what the season is. And depending on the season, there are different ways to do this.
Let’s first start with the cold winter months. It’s super easy for your skin to get dried out during this time. If you’ve ever experienced chapped knuckles and even some bleeding, this is not ‘just because’. It’s because your skin is dry and is simply begging you to help it out. So the best way to prepare is to take the preventative approach. As soon as summer starts coming to an end and fall approaches, carry hand moisturizer with you wherever you go. Put it in your bag, and apply it to your skin often. Do it in the morning before you leave the house. Do it again occasionally throughout the day, especially if you’re out and about a lot. The harsh air and wind can do a tremendous amount of damage if you do not protect yourself adequately. If you do this from the beginning of fall, you should be golden. Otherwise, you might fall into the pitfall that is dried hands.
Lips are also crucial. When you speak to someone, that’s what they see. So of course, it’s best to have luscious lips instead of dry, cracked ones. Always carry a lip moisturizer with you. The more natural, the better. Also apply it before you go to sleep, since otherwise that means 8 hours (wishful thinking) of going sans hydration. This can be even worse if you’re a mouth breather.
And then there’s the face. Now, you might think that you don’t want to get acne so you should not apply moisturizer to your skin. But that’s where you’re wrong. When your skin is too dry it sends signals to your body to produce more sebum, which can actually cause an overproduction and make your skin oilier than you want, thereby leading to more breakouts. So hydrate, and hydrate well. Test out a few moisturizers before you commit to the right one for you.
And lastly, summertime. Don’t underestimate the strength- and danger- of the sun. always, but especially in the summer, apply suntan lotion or something with SPF in it to protect you from harmful UV rays. Luckily, most moisturizers and chap sticks already have SPF in them, so you don’t have to worry. But you do have to worry about applying to the rest of your body, as well as stronger SPF even in those areas if you’re going to be in direct sunlight for an extended period of time.
