While most of us are aware of the negative effects of the sun on our skin, few of us stop to consider how the cold affects our skin. Cold air and wind literally depletes the skin of any natural oils, resulting in it becoming red, itchy, blotchy and tight. It’s very important to hydrate the skin with the correct skin products on a regular basis if you’re going to be spending time outdoors. This is especially important for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts that hike, cycle, run and swim. A cream like Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Glow is high in glycerine that infuses moisture into the skin, counteracting these damaging environmental effects. And remember, always use sun protection when outdoors – even in winter!
