As winter approaches, our skin starts feeling dry and uncomfortable. We’ve all experienced it! But the elements don’t have to get the better of your skin. You can still maintain that beautiful, radiant complexion all season long. As the season changes, it’s time to change your skin care regimen and we are here to tell you just how!
1. Sun Protect
Don’t over look the sunscreen in winters. The sun is equally harmful in both the summers and the winters. This is one part of your skin care regimen that must not change.
A good body scrub and facial exfoliant will help remove dead skin cells from your body, leave you feeling fresh and make your skin more receptive to moisturizer! Add this to your cleansing routine once a week.
3. Lukewarm Bath
Avoid long steaming hot showers which are tempting in the winters. They lead to dryness and moisture loss. Bathe with lukewarm water instead and follow up by applying a rich moisturizer or body oil immediately after the bath to retain moisture.
The best time to moisturize is right after you shower because it will help seal in the moisture. Use a natural oil-based moisturizer for your face and a rich body butter for your body. It will help fight the excessive moisture loss which makes your skin flaky. Your elbows, knuckles and knees are dryness prone areas so lather on generously.
5. Happy Feet
For your feet, apply foot oil or cream at night and wear socks. This will ensure the moisturizer fully seeps into your skin, making it soft and well-hydrated by morning.
6. Go Mild
7. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Stays hydrated and drink loads of water. Eat fruits and vegetables that are packed with water, such as apples, celery and cucumbers. Herbal tea is also soothing when it’s really cold. Drink up and don’t let your skin go thirsty.
8. For Soft Lips
Protect your lips with a good-quality lip balm. Don’t lick your lips; this will only chap your lips more. Instead, keep the lip balm in your purse and apply whenever you like! Natural lip balms are non-toxic and do not contain any harmful chemicals, which is important because we always end up licking some, don’t we!
9. No Blow Drying
Give the blow drier a miss this season. Hot air dries the scalp & irritates the skin. Try the tousled look or the wavy style instead. And don’t forget to oil your hair before washing. This will give your hair the added moisture it needs and prevent it from looking rough.
Also, remember to invest in products which suit your skin and simply stay away from products that have sulphates, parabens and phtalates. We recommend using products made from all natural ingredients and which are absolutely chemical-free. Just avoid the dirty dozen when you buy any cosmetics! You are sure to notice a difference in your skin right away! Get set to bring on the new season and keep your skin happy!
