4 Simple Tips to Boost Skin Hydration in Winter Months

Winter in Alberta is long, dry and takes a toll on the skin. With a few simple tips you can ensure your skin stays hydrated all winter long.

Drink water
Winter brings with it the joys of hot beverages that won’t replace the need for water. Hydrate your skin from the inside out. Drinking a sufficient amount of water is essential for overall health.

Exfoliate
Slough off dead skin on the surface to allow your moisturizer better penetration. Winter months we recommend you exfoliate 1-2 times a week.

Moisturize while skin is damp
Applying your moisturizure while your skin is still damp will allow the moisturize to penetrate better into the skin.

Add a serum
Serums are lightweight moisturizers that usually contain a high concentration of active ingredients. Their light texture allows them easy penetration into the skin, thus enhancing your hydration power. Always follow the serum with your cream of choice.
