Hey everyone, as the weather has changed we need to take care of our skin even more. As always, we put ourselves in the last and neglect ourselves. But we don't realize that the winter season can make our skin very dry. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which then steals moisture away from the skin every second of every day.
I will share a few tips with you today which are not time consuming and are very easy to follow.
🏵️ Wash in Luke warm water :
Hot showers always feel good. But remember,they make your skin more dry. Always wash your face with lukewarm water .
🏵️ Moisturise immediately after you wash your face :
Applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that dampness into the skin.
🏵️Be careful while choosing the right moisturiser:
Most moisturisers have petroleum-based ingredients that can actually further dry your skin in the winter months. Be sure to choose a smart formula that has natural, nourishing ingredients. Go for an oil-based rather than a water-based solution, as it’s more likely to help your skin retain moisture in the winter.
🏵️ Drink lots of water:
We tend to drink less water in the winter because we turn to hot drinks like coffee and tea, but don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time. Or keep a warm water in a flask near you and you can have whenever you want.
🏵️ Overnight Moisturise:
Dryer areas like hands, feet, elbows, and knees have thin skin and tend to lose moisture faster than other areas on the body. So remember to use a moisturizer every night too.
🏵️ Exfoliate :
We often forget to help the skin slough off dead cells in the winter, particularly on our hands. Find an exfoliating mask and use it on your face and your hands, as well as gently on your lips, then follow immediately with moisturizer to truly see a smoother difference.
🏵️ Hydrate from inside out :
Eating foods high in water content can help hydrate your skin from the inside out. Watermelon, cantaloupe, apples, oranges, kiwi, and watery veggies like tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, and carrots.
Do not forget to use your sunscreen even when there is no sun outside. Even if there is no sun, the ultraviolet rays are still there which are very harmful for your skin. A sunscreen is a must.
I hope these winter skin care tips will be helpful to you. Please share in comments your winter skin care routine.
