                                              WINTER SKIN CARE :
1. The skin needs hydration from the inside,out.A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time.But we tend to drink less water in winter,we turned to hot drinks like tea,cocoa etc.It is not good the skin.
2. Use Lukewarm Water :- When washing your face or hands use lukewarm water to avoid stripping .as many oils away from the skin.Hot showers and baths are always feel good in winter.
3. Moisturize Immediately Afterwards :- Skin needs more moisture,so moisture right after wash.Applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that dampness in to the skin.Keep a bottle near the bathtub,shower and at every sink and use liberally every wash.
4. Carefully Choose the Moisturizer :- Choose a smart formula that has natural,nourishing ingredients.Avoid petroleum based ingredients which actually further dry your skin in the winter.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.
5. Protection :- Use gloves and scarves to protect skin from cold winds,rain,snow and sunscreen.Winter sun is damaging instead summer sun,so apply a safe option like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to any exposed areas.
6. Humidity :- Heating systems dry the air,so consider installing a humidifier in your home,specially in bedroom,to put moisture back in to the air and help prevent your skin from drying out.
7. Moisturize Overnight :- Dry areas like feet,hands,knees,elbows,have thin skin and tend to lose moisture faster than other areas on the body.Consider slathering on a deep moisturizing balm.Skin Food by Weleda at night,then wear cotton gloves and socks to steal in the moisture until morning.
8. Exfoliate :- Use exfoliating mask on face and hands as well as gently on lips,then follow immediately with moisture to truly see a smoother difference.Exfoliating body washes are also helpful in the winter season.
9. Avoid Toxins :- If you have eczema dermatitis or psoriasis,avoid allergens and irritants that may trigger a flare up.Winter skin is more fragile,so avoid irritating fabrics like wool and chemical laden detergents and use mild cleansers and moisturizers designed for sensitive skin.Glutathione is considered the master anti oxidant and helps body detox.
10. DIY Masks :- Homemade hydrating masks can provide needed moisture in the winter.Use natural moisturizing ingredients like avocado,olive,honey,yogurt,almond oil,aloe,jojoba oils,bananas etc.Mix what you like to create a cream or paste and leave on skin for 15-30 minutes for lasting hydration.
11. Change Cleanser :- Use like Suki Naturals Moisture Rich Cleansing Lotion,or for really dry skin,try a cleansing balm like Ren No.1Purity Cleansing Balm.After cleansing don't leave the skin nacked for more than 30 seconds as this can dehydrate it,leading to increased dryness.Apply a hydrating toner and moisturizer to seal in moisture.
12. Hydrate From Inside Out :- Eating foods high in water content can help hydrate skin from the inside out.Try apples,watermelon,oranges,kiwi,cantaloupe and watery veggies like celery,cucumber,tomatoes,zucchini,carrots etc.Make sure that there is enough vitamin C and zinc to support the healthy production of collagen and elastin and also consider Be Well's omega-3 supplement,or consume more fatty fish and flaxseed to give your skin the building blocks it needs to appear supple and smooth.
