I bet like me growing up you didn’t think a lot about sun protection and skincare in the winter. I mean it’s cold, so obviously you can’t get sunburned or have any sun damage right? Well wrong. Winter is JUST as important as summer, so today I am sharing 3 ways to care for and protect your skin from the sun this winter.
3 Ways To Care For And Protect For Your Skin In The Winter
Sun Protection: Every morning when I get ready for the day after I wash my face and moisturize and go through my entire skincare routine I apply SPF. I have very sensitive skin and spend a lot of time outside with Liam going on walks, to the park, etc. Of course I make sure he is protected, but I have to make sure I am protected too. This also means making sure you get your ears, hairline, back of your neck, etc. Even if you are layered up head to toe make sure you are protecting your skin. My secret weapon for keeping my hands hydrated and protected from the sun is Eucerin Daily Hydration Hand Creme with SPF 30! Its portable size makes it super easy to throw in my bag and bring with Liam and me wherever we go.
Hats/Sunglasses: For some reason I always felt funny in sunglasses in the winter when I was younger. It felt unnatural. But you guys your eyes are so sensitive. You have to protect them! You also need to protect your head! So hats and sunglasses on yourself and on littles to protect the most sensitive parts of our body to the sun. Again DON’T FORGET THE EARS!
Stay Away: I mean if you don’t have to be in the sun just don’t be. Umbrellas, covered porches and patios, even being in the shade at the pool (some people have pool weather in the winter) just don’t be in the sun. Tans are kind of overrated in my opinion. I have embraced the paleness that is my skin so try my best to limit my sun exposure.
