Is your skin feeling dry and irritated lately? Ah, the joys of winter. During these dark cold months it is important to pay close attention to your skin regime, which should change with the weather. For many people, the ice cold days of winter bring more than a rosy glow to the cheeks, but a severe dryness that can lead to cracking and flaking. Kucumber Skin Lounge provides skin care services that will help rejuvenate sensitive skin even in the harsh conditions of winter. Come on in out of the cold and follow these winter skincare tips until spring arrives!

- Moisturize more. Your moisturizer may work just fine in the summer and fall, but changing weather conditions should dictate a difference in your skincare routine. Use a moisturizer that is oil-based to increase the protective layer on the skin. Make sure oils are non-clogging and non-greasy like avocado, almond, or mineral oil.
- Take cold-warm showers. Cranking the shower to full heat feels great after being in the cold, but the switch in temperatures can irritate your skin. If the water is so hot your skin turns red, turn the temperature down a few notches. Hot water breaks down lipid barriers in the skin, leading to further loss of moisture. A lukewarm shower or bath can help relieve dry skin.
- Don’t forget about sunscreen. Winter sunrays can affect your skin just as much as in the summer, especially with the reflection of snow and dry air. Apply a moisturizer with SPF or a broad-spectrum sunscreen about 30 minutes before going outside on a sunny day.
