How to take care of your skin in Winter?
The cold winds and harsh temperatures of the winter season can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it dry, irritated, reddened and deprived of moisture. Whether you have an oily skin, dry or combination skin, it is important for everyone to take effective measures to help restore moisture and fight off dryness. Remember, dryness is the ultimate culprit that triggers the worst skin woes, including inflammation and acne.
We’ve compiled all the tips and tricks that will help you pamper and protect your skin through the cold winter months.
Here, take a look:
The health of your skin is always more than an inch deep, and you need to understand that beauty is always inside out. Therefore, staying hydrated by drinking sufficient amounts of water is incredibly important to make sure the lack of humidity doesn’t deprive your skin of all its moisture and essential oils. We urge you to keep a reusable water bottle with you at all times so you can sip some water every now and then. A tall glass of freshly squeezed orange and beetroot juice will also work wonders, while we also suggest you to invest in herbal teas, such as ginger, lavender and lemon grass.
A Good Moisturizer
Depending on your skin type and beauty woes, you need to arm yourself with a powerful moisturizer or body butter cream that will help your skin replenish all the moisture it loses to the harsh winter winds. Be sure to lather the skin on your arms, face, hands, legs, feet and neck with a good moisturizing lotion or body butter cream to dry away dryness and the awful skin conditions that come with it. Take extra care to apply liberal quantities of moisturizer especially while going out so your skin remains supple and moisturized.
Mindful Cleansing & Exfoliation
When choosing your winter skincare products, especially cleansers and exfoliators, it is important to avoid products that are powered with harsh chemicals, damaging ingredients, alcohol and artificial fragrances. You see, these additives deprive your skin of it all its natural oils and moistures, and cause damage to your already dry and cracked-up skin. We recommend you to invest in creamy cleansers and hydrating exfoliators that help you remove your makeup and dead skin cells without causing any moisture loss.
Essential Oils & Natural Products
Protect your skin against the harsh winter temperatures by arming yourself with powerful essential oils and natural DIY homemade scrubs and masks that will replenish your skin with essential nutrients. Bentonite clay masks are a great skin rejuvenating remedy, while turmeric and frankincense essential oil will also help drive down dryness and acne. Cedar wood blended with vanilla will uplift your skin and calm your nerves, while the soulful blend of geranium and lavender will eliminate dryness and pamper your skin along with your nerves and mind.
Always Wear Sunscreen
Even if the day is grey and snowy, don’t forget to wear your sunscreen. You see, even on the grayest, snowiest of winter days, the snow increases your risk of exposure to UV rays by reflecting more than 80% of the sun’s harmful rays. So, be sure to wear sunscreen whenever you leave the house.
