Tips to Taking Care of Your Skin During the Winter Season
The Californer/10054776

SAN FRANCISCO - Californer -- The winter months can hold the magic and beauty of the season but also can wreak havoc on our delicate facial skin.  According to acclaimed natural and holistic anti-aging master, Richard Haxton of Richard Haxton's Transformational Skin Solutions of Los Altos (, skin needs extra attention during cold weather.  During this time of the year, external moisture loss of the skin is accelerated when forced dry heat like heaters and radiators pull moisture out of the air and the skin, making it the time to wear heavier moisturizer to create a barrier against this moisture loss.  Additionally, solutions such as running a humidifier or a small indoor fountain will help to put moisture back into air.

Cold weather also slows down the flow of blood and lymph which nourishes skin. This decreases the internal moisture level of skin. During the winter months, we also tend to drink more hot beverages to stay warm. Many of these beverages contain caffeine. Caffeinated drinks deplete 4 times their weight in water, actually further causing dehydration. Imagine having to drink 4 cups of water to replenish the moisture lost with every 1 cup of caffeinated coffee! On a daily basis, you should be drinking 64 ounces of spring water, herbal teas or decaffeinated beverages.

Remember that topical creams will not replace moisture in skin; they only serve to lock it in. The reason why night creams are heavier than day creams is that skin loses a lot more moisture at night (cellular repair from the stresses of the day occurs while you are sleeping), and a heavier cream does a better job at preventing moisture from escaping. In addition to drinking plenty of water, taking fish oil supplements can help maintain internal moisture levels of the skin. Check with your doctor before taking any supplements.
