So long as you slap on the sunscreen, the summer rays help your skin glow and fizz with youthfulness. And then comes the woe of winter/rainy season to shut this down. To put it bluntly, winter or cold weather is no fun for your skin. The cocktail of cold weather, lower humidity, and air so dry it puts your favorite white wine to shame, your skin is being robbed of all moisture it needs. The bad news is, the bad news isn’t over yet because indoors, where you enjoy having the heating on and taking hot baths with harsh cleansers, makes life even harsher for your skin.
So, this holiday season, we recommend you try these tips to keep your skin looking smooth and youthful this winter.
One of the best things about the winter months is standing beneath the hot waterfall that is a shower or soaking in an excessively steaming bath. However, you should try and stick to lukewarm temperatures when you can, such as when you are washing your hands or face. This is because hot water strips your skin of its natural oils, which isn’t ideal.
As soon as you are done washing or soaking, slap on the moisturizer straightaway. This is because applying moisturizer to damp skin will help you seal that dampness in your skin, which is just what your body wants and needs in winter. As a little tip, choose a cream that has retinol in which, as www.retinol.com explains, is the number one anti-aging ingredient. Then pop a bottle in your bathroom and then use liberally after every variation of wash going,
It’s no wonder that we drink less water in the winter when there are so many mug-warming options out there like pumpkin-spiced lattes, hot chocolate, English tea and whatever else warms your belly. However, you need to remember to drink water as well because hydrating your skin from the inside out is just as important. Don’t worry, you can still go down warm route by drinking hot water and lemon- which has lots of benefits according to www.gyanunlimited.com - or green tea, both of which are nutritious, delicious, hydrating and refreshing.
Once upon a time, there was moisture that was trying to get into your skin, but it couldn’t because your dead skin cells were too thick and too plentiful. Luckily for you, Prince Exfoliation turned up to save the day, helping the dead cells disappear and your skin gets the moisture needed. That is why we recommend you find yourself a good exfoliator and then apply, focussing on your face, hands, and lips. Once you’ve washed this off, apply some moisturizing cream and smile at your soft and smooth skin. So, stock on exfoliating masks and body washes and fight back against the winter months.
And there we have it, everything you need to protect and love your skin all year round, from summer through winter. All you have to do is remember these tips and you’re skin will smile like never before. Until next time.
