Summer time is great. Your skin feels young and alive. But as winter approaches your skin begins to dry and you feel uncomfortably and itchy. What do you do?
1 Drink water ...
Hydrate your skin from within by drinking lots of water. Carry a bottle with you when you go outside. Herbal tea is also great when it’s really cold. Your skin will soon have a healthy glow. So drink up and don’t let your skin go thirsty.
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.
3 Exfoliate ...
A good boy scrub and facial exfoliant can help remove dead skin cells 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!
This will help protect your skin from moisture loss. 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.
6 Gloves ...
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.
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.
Now how does a jojoba oil or sweet almond bath sound to you? Relaxing isn’t it! 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 No blow dry ...
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 we mean. If you do, you’ll only chap your lips even more. 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.
Lillie Hi, I am 50+ ,I need help with wrinkle,lines and sagging,Please,Help!
Heather Hi Lillie! Have you tried any of the tips above? :)
David Hi dear, Your article is excellent. Thank you for delivering a lot of very helpful information and facts. for example- Winter is the worst season for those who have dry skin – flaking, itchiness and tautness is usual and neglect of daily care can certainly lead to habitual dehydration, with sensitive skins and red patches.
Lyndsie Hi David, welcome to AWS! Thanks for your kind comment!
raluralu I have to disagree. Lip balms are simply a myth, they were invented purely to get you thinking you need another beauty product. Licking your lips is healthy as saliva is antibacterial an moisturizes them. Also, I recommend putting honey on your lips, it makes them very soft and sweet :)
Sheila Honey is amazing isn't it! Thanks for sharing that tip raluralu :)
manish really thanks a lot
beauty Cold weather can be especially harsh on your skin. During the fall and winter seasons, the combination of cold temperatures and low humidity pulls moisture from your skin. It is this loss of moisture that causes our skin to become dry, red, and scaly. Moisturizers protect your skin from the elements. Think of moisturizers as a daily barrier between your skin and the air. Even if you have oily skin, you still may need a moisturizer in the winter.
