Skin Care Tips for Winter (Cold Weather)
Hope you are enjoying the long winter nights sleeping – to get your much needed beauty sleep. At the same time, winter does affect your hands, skin and overall body a lot.
Here are some handy tips to make your winter better – not warmer, ofcourse, but you’ll feel the warmth of beauty once you use these beauty tips to look even brighter, happier and more beautiful.
1) Drink a lot of water:
Give your skin abundance of water. Always Carry a bottle of water with you when you go outside. another option: Tea can be a good option during cold. This gives your body extra moisture that you lost due to winter.
2) Exfoliate Your Skin
A nice body scrub can help reduce dead skin from your body. Add this to your cleansing routine once a week. Not only will you feel fresh but your skin will be free from all that old dry cells. Now you’re ready to moisturize
3) Use A Humidifier
One good option would be to put moisture back into the air. A humidifying system can help your skin remain supple instead of cracked and dry. You can buy a system from your local drug store.
4) Using a good Moisturizer, preferably oil-based
As your skin looses moisture during winters it needs a good moisturizer. Choose one that comes in an ointment form as it will contain 80% oil. Creams and lotions may tend to dry out the skin rather than keep it moisturized and soft.
Don’t say goodbye to your sunscreen just because summer is over. Before you leave your house, apply a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 or more. This will protect your skin from the elements. Alternatively, choose a product can combines a sunscreen with a moisturizer.
It’s simple but it works! Why expose your hands to the cold. Choose a good quality pair that does not irritate the skin. If you’re allergic to wool, wear a cotton mitten underneath. It will help keep your hands dry and warm.
7) Flaxseed oil
Although it doesn’t taste very great flaxseed oil can moisturize your body from the inside. Since it is rich in vital fatty acids it can do a lot for your overall health. It is available in oil form as well as in capsule form.
8) Oil bath
A good jojoba and almond oil bath will relax your body. You don’t have to keep these for holidays. Nourish you skin by adding a few drops of these oils into your every day bath. It will do wonders for your skin.
9) Say no to blowers
Yes, sadly so. The blow drier is not your friend in winter. Try the tousled look or the wavy style this winter. Hot air dries out your scalp and can irritate your skin as well. So give the blow drier a miss this cold season.
10) Don’t lick your lips
Lips have no oil glands, we are tempted to lick our lips during winters but we should avoid doing it. Keep a lip balm in your purse and apply it when you’re tempted! Or read more advice on How to Get Rid of Chapped Lips.
