Getting Your Skin Ready for Winter
Now that we are officially in the month of September, that means cooler weather in the upcoming months. Yes, we will no longer be sweating due to the hot temperatures or exposing ourselves to the sun, but your skin is still extremely important in the fall/winter as it is in the spring/summer. It's never too early to start getting your skin prepped for cold weather. Just like we switch out the spring/summer clothes with our fall/winter clothes is the same exact thing when it comes to skincare. In this blog, I will be discussing various ways in how you can get your skin ready for the winter.
Switch From Lotion to Creams or Oils
Switches to creams that have more oil content and less of a water content is key to keeping your skin moisturized. Yes, creams do feel a bit heavier compared to lotions, but they give the added protection needed against the colder temperatures. This also applies to facial cleansers. Switching to oil cleansers will make your skin feel even more moisturizes since the other cleansers tend to dry out your skin (its always a good idea to oil cleanse year round). Doubling up on moisture by using both of our WELLB products, THE OIL & THE BALM together adds an extra layer of hydration to your skin.
THE OIL is a multipurpose product that can be used as both a facial cleanser, makeup remover, and a moisturizer and THE BALM is a multipurpose product that can be used as a face/body moisturizer and a primer underneath your makeup. Both products contain organic oils and essential oils. Remember, using products that have more oil content and less water content is key to keeping your skin moisturized. These products can be used all year round especially if you have dry/combination skin.
I have combination skin and every time I use these products, I can definitely see a difference in my skin from it glowing to being so moisturized. It used to be very hard to find products that would moisturize my skin without my skin feeling dry until I tried these products. I use THE OIL to wash my face and THE BALM to moisturize my face and body. I cannot wait to use them during the winter season because dry skin plus cold weather is no fun.

Yes, we are no longer exposing ourselves to the sun as we would during the spring and summer, but you are still exposing your face. Did you know that you can still get sun exposure even if it is cloudy outside? Clouds do not block the UV rays completely and depending on the cloud type can determine how much of a UV percentage that can pass through the clouds. Continuing to wear SPF daily is very important. THE SPF 30 by WELLB® is an excellent choice in sunscreens. It is a mineral tinted sunscreen that is made with natural ingredients that will completely block off UV rays before it touches your skin when applied as directed.

As mentioned above, doubling up on moisturizer by using THE OIL & THE BALM, plus using an SPF are the 3 most important key points in prepping your skin for winter and keeping it hydrated throughout the colder seasons, WELLB® has a daily kit that includes these 3 products for a great price!

Take Shorter Showers/ Avoid Really Hot Water
The one thing that we look forward to each day, especially after a long day is a nice, hot shower but is the very thing that can dry out our skin. Choose taking shorter showers, lukewarm baths or showers, and pat your skin dry afterward following with moisturizing your full body.
Avoid The Stressors
With the 3 major holidays being back-to-back, this can bring on added stress and stress is not good for the skin. Stress can cause unwanted breakouts. Stress is unavoidable, but it can be managed. Try to manage it and if you’re feeling stress, take a step back, take a lukewarm bath, drink tea, or just do what you know will calm your mind and body.
Doing the above will help get your skin ready for winter. Using cream or oil based moisturizers and cleansers, applying SPF daily, taking shorter and lukewarm baths or showers, and avoiding the stressors.
