For many of us, “ber” months only means one of two things: (1) the Christmas season, and (2) the cold weather. And while we’re all too excited to celebrate with our loved ones and *finally* wear our favorite cozy sweaters again, let’s not forget that it has its own drawbacks, too—especially on our skin.
So before you go outside and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, find out what this season really does to your skin and what you can do to avoid these cold weather-related skin problems!
The cold weather can dry out your skin. You’ve probably heard about this already, but we just cannot stress it enough. While we’re all about enjoying the outdoors during this time of the year, we should keep in mind the risk of drying out our skin. To save yourself from trouble like chapped lips and cracked skin, be sure to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
You can still get sunburn on cool days. You probably have a good reason to believe why you wouldn’t need to apply sunscreen when it’s cold. Hate to break it to you, but sunscreens are still a must, a non-negotiable, during this time of the year. So, keep your trusty sunscreen handy and never (ever!) leave your house without applying it!
Pollution can damage your skin. You may be wondering what this has to do with the cold weather. Just because it’s (too) cold, doesn’t mean pollution doesn’t exist anymore. Surprise, surprise! Pollution and dirt are pretty much everywhere. And it won’t leave you anytime soon. If you asked us, we’d highly recommend trying Vaseline Healthy White Sun + Pollution Protection. It comes with Pollution Protection Formula that protects your fairness from the darkening effects of the sun and pollution. Plus, it has microdroplets of Vaseline Jelly that will surely keep your skin moisturized! We know what you’re thinking: something that whitens, protects, and moisturizes is like hitting not just two, but three birds with one stone!
We get it, you love the cold. But before you step outside, shield your skin from sun damage and pollution! Trust us; your skin will thank you later!
