Did you know a good part of the United States can still get blasted with snow even into March, actually March is the month that Denver gets 20% of it’s snowfall for the year!
Living in Miami, we don’t often think about skin protection from the cold, it’s the hot weather that gets our attention. Up north, it’s not uncommon to hear about temperatures below zero. The cold blustery winds and sleet and snow are very hard on your skin. Even in Florida the winter months can take a toll.
When it’s cold outside, we crank up the heat inside the house, the car, the office, but in between we're exposed to frigid temperatures.
What happens in winter is the cold weather dries your skin because of fluctuations in temperature and lack of moisture in the air. Winter is the most common time for your skin to lose the most moisture without you being aware it’s happening.
It’s when you have the heat on that it takes the moisture out of the air. If you add a fireplace to the mix, even more dehydration will occur. Here in Florida we are very dependent on the humidity, we may think we don’t like it, but all that moisture is really great for keeping your skin looking and feeling fresh and young.
To help restore the moisture that has been robbed from your skin during the winter months, I recommend using Dr. Thrower’s SPF 30 Face & Body Moisturizing Lotion.
This “Complexion-Protection” moisturizer has a non-whiting sunblock formula that provides maximum protection without leaving behind an ashy residue on darker complexions, and helps keep skin complexion bright and clear.
The Board Spectrum SPF active ingredients in this formula provide UVA/UVB sun protection, helping to protect face and body from sunburn while soothing and hydrating skin. The fast absorbing, lightweight, and non-greasy formula is effective for all skin types.
Apply to face in morning after Toner/Astringent. Apply as needed to body liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. For children under 6 months of age ask your doctor.
What time of year do you find is most harsh for your skin, winter or summer?
