• Game On! Skin Care Tips for Winter Sports

      1 comment

    Sun Protection & Skin CareIf there’s one thing that we know about Canadians, it’s that we love our winter sports. From the sacred hockey rink to snowboarding, ice skating and downhill skiing, Canadians don’t look at winter as a time to go inside and hibernate. Instead, those of us in the north like to get out and experience all that the outdoors has to offer in the winter months. That may be great for our overall health and athletic development, but it can play havoc with our skin. Fortunately, with the right skin care products and a little personal responsibility, your skin can enjoy the outdoors as much as your body does!


    Winter Sport Skin Care Tip: Use Sun Protection for Outdoor Winter Sports

    Your skin is going to take a beating when you participate in outdoor winter sports. The dry, cold air and the often harsh weather will absolutely take its toll. However, while you can’t avoid the air and the precipitation, you can minimize the impact of another outdoor element: harmful UV rays from the sun. Be sure to wear sunscreen or sun block with the same level of protection that you’d use in the summer. Believe it or not, UV rays can actually be more damaging in the winter because you absorb both the direct UV rays from the sun and the diffuse UV rays reflected off of the snow.

    Winter Sport Skin Care Tip: Wear Sunglasses

    All of the anti aging and anti wrinkle products in the world will only be able to minimize the crow’s feet that develop deeply around your eyes if you allow yourself to become a serious sun squinter in the winter! Because the reflection of sun off of white snow can make your surroundings extra bright in the winter, the impact of squinting and the wrinkles that develop from it can be even more intense. Both be sure to wear sunglasses to minimize this impact and consider using a moisturizing eye cream after outdoor sporting events to preserve your youthful looking eyes.


    Winter Sport Skin Care Tip: Keep Moisturizer Handy and Nearby

    When you finish your outdoor sporting event, your skin will be dry. Even if you have acne prone skin and are using an effective acne treatment product, your skin will still be susceptible to drying and flaking from the outdoor conditions, and that can actually cause more acne breakouts. Carry a nourishing skin moisturizer to apply to your face shortly after you come indoors (make sure that it’s an oil-free moisturizer if your skin is acne-prone). You may also want to consider a moisturizer that has soothing ingredients to take that “just out of the cold” sting and redness off of your face!


    Winter Sport Skin Care Tip: Don’t Forget Back Acne!

    Winter sports often mean sweating below several layers of clothing for hours on end. That may be great for losing water weight, but it’s not great if you’re trying to avoid back and body acne. Make sure that you have a plan for back and body acne treatment that includes an exfoliating body scrub that also includes an acne medication. Murad Acne BodyWash in combination with Murad Clarifying Body Spray is a great way to ensure that your back stays clear even if you’re sweating under a t-shirt, a thermal shirt, a sweater and a puffy jacket!


    Winter sports are great fun, great exercise and a great way to show your Canadian spirit, but they can also be harsh on your skin. Follow the tips above to keep your skin healthy through all the winter sporting months no matter what outdoor activity you’re embracing when the weather gets cold.
