Two Reasons Winter Ages Your Skin Faster

Reasons Winter Ages Your Skin Faster
When your skin is over-exposed to harsh weather conditions, such as hot sun or cold wind, it can get damaged. Protecting yourself with moisturizers, sun block, and other products can help mitigate the sun’s damage in summer months. Winter though, is another story altogether.
The dry, flaky, pale skin associated with winter weather can enhance the signs of aging. Here are a few of the top reasons winter weather ages you faster, and how you can fight back.
The air in winter is much drier than the air in the summertime. Cold, dry air can sap the moisture from your skin in minutes – especially if it’s windy. The harsh climate can cause your skin to be irritable and sensitive, and make you more susceptible to experiencing skin conditions, including rosacea, which is more common in winter than summer.
Not Using Sunscreen
The sun can harm your skin all-year-round. There are two main types of UV rays that affect your skin: UVA and UVB. UVB rays don’t penetrate very deeply and are primarily responsible for sunburn on the surface of your skin.
UVA rays, however, penetrate deep into the dermis and cause premature aging and wrinkling. The good news is there are fewer UVB rays hitting your skin during winter months. The bad news is there is little change in the amount of UVA rays you’re exposed to.How to Fight Premature Aging
You’d have to stay inside all day every day to prevent the weather from affecting your skin. Since that’s all but impossible, the next best thing is to
use quality anti-aging products in your skincare rand body care regimen. Skin and Senses offers a variety of powerful anti-aging products that will help reduce the damage weather does to your skin. For the face use Illuminate, our anti-aging night oil serum, before you go to bed and wake up to a bright, vibrant complexion every morning. Pair it with Difference, our anti-aging eye oil serum, for maximum benefits.
For Body use our Fearless Body Butter our formula has been perfected to deliver results. No Water, No Fillers, made with only the highest quality pure ingredients. It has vitamin E as a microbial and is so pure that it melts as soon as it touches your skin. It is a thick, creamy body butter meant to keep your skin extremely well moisturized.
Fearless is a rich, creamy butter so a little bit goes a long way. We chose ingredients that will not only moisturize the top layer of skin but also soak in deep and penetrate beneath for long lasting extreme moisture.
Fearless has also been known to help eczema, psoriasis and keratosis pilaris.
There is no avoiding the effects of weather on your skin, especially if you live in a cold winter climate, unless you stay inside. Since that would be unrealistic, be sure to protect your skin to maintain its youthful appearance.
