From the vibrant colors of leaves to the falling temperatures, Fall is all about change. But did you know that one other thing begins to change in Fall? Your skin.
With the cooler weather often comes dry, rough, or even itchy skin. Why? It’s a combination of factors. And knowing what these changes are and how to protect your skin against them will make all the difference this winter.
First, the cooler weather of fall zaps moisture from your skin. Couple that with the often drying heat in your home and the damaging harsh winter weather, and you’ll have the perfect trifecta for dry skin.
So how can you prepare and protect your skin against the winter elements? The key is, as usual, moisturizing with one of our amazing tan extenders.
Applying a tan extender is the first step to soft, supple winter skin. Give your skin an extra boost during cooler months by investing in a heavier lotion or cream to help your skin retain its much-needed moisture and overall touch-ability. You can also boost natural moisture by liberally applying your tan extender after showering while your skin is still damp. This will lock in a layer of moisture, helping your skin stay silky smooth all day.
Another “must-have”, even during the winter months, is sunscreen. Although you may not be laying out in the warm sun any longer, you still need to maintain your SPF routine, especially in the winter months. Although you can’t feel its heat, the sun can still damage your skin year-round. If you’re going outside in the daytime, even if the temperatures are below freezing, you’ll want to protect exposed skin areas with an SPF of 30 or greater.
So this winter, take the steps to maintain your soft skin year round. And, as always, stepping into one of our sun beds and using one of Sun Tan City’s tanning lotions is a great way to not only help moisturize your skin, but to maintain your beautiful bronzed glow, no matter the season.
