Tips for Winter Skin Care

By Sara Butler

You may not think about it this way, but your skin is your body’s largest organ. It protects you from the outside world, so taking the time to care for your skin is really important to your overall health and wellness. With winter on the horizon, you need to take some extra steps to ensure the health of your skin. Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy all winter long.


Your skin is just like any other organ, it needs to be properly hydrated in order to be healthy and function properly. You need to remember to get enough water every day, but if you have a hard time remembering, you can do things such as set a reminder on your phone to sip some water.


Skin can get dry in the winter, so you need to use a rich, oil-based lotion to help fight off the ill effects winter can have on your skin. If you use an oil-based product it will help to seal moisture into your skin better than the water-based lotions – though water-based will work best on your face. Pay attention to the ingredients in your lotion and try to go with something as natural as possible.


Winter air is dry, and heating your home can dry out the air even more. You should invest in a decent humidifier to run in your home to help keep moisture in your home. This will help your skin and your mucous membranes, such as your lips and the inside of your nose!

Veg Out

Add vegetables to your diet in the winter to help with hydration. Cucumbers and celery are great sources of water, plus they’re low in calories with a satisfying crunch for a great snack. Also try to stock up on yellow and orange vegetables such as pumpkin, sweet potatoes, red peppers and carrots. These vegetables are great sources of antioxidants and beta-carotene, both of which are good for your skin and your overall health. Add some spinach and other dark, leafy greens for a boost of Vitamin A and Vitamin B this winter!

Avoid Chemicals

As your body’s largest organ you have to remember that your skin also absorbs some of the stuff you put on it. This is why you need to be careful about the things you apply to it such as soaps, lotions, and fragrances. Essential oils are a great natural option for your skin. You need to try to find things with as few chemicals in them as possible because you always run the risk of absorbing those chemicals into your body!
