Cold, wind even indoor air can leave your skin dehydrated and flaky. Rescue your skin from extreme winter dryness and read on for some TLC recommendations for your winter weary skin.
Cold weather, winds and spending much of the time in a home or office with dry heat blasting, all contribute to dry skin. That isn’t just on your face, but your entire body. Use creams which are typically more moisturising as they do a much better job at protecting against temperature and humidity extremes. Active Agents to Consider:
The sun damages skin every day, all year round. In fact, rather than sun protection we should think of daylight protection. Sun damage facts:
Avoid harsh face washes and opt for a soft cream cleanser. Gently exfoliate the skin to help get rid of dry skin cells. Exfoliation is the removal of the tired, dead cells on the surface of the skin and is one of the most important aspects of your skincare routine for both face and body. Exfoliation not only increases blood circulation, which in turn helps you to achieve healthy and glowing skin. It also speeds up the skin renewal process, allowing new healthy cells to take their place. This process helps turn your complexion from dull and dry to bright, vibrant, and smooth. Because you are increasing blood circulation and lymphatic system, breaking down toxins and encouraging new skin cells to come through make sure to drink lots of water to help with draining of the toxins and help give the new cells a healthy glowing appearance. After exfoliation the skin is ready to absorb a good moisturizer.
As they can leave our skin crying out for moisture over the long-term. Opt for shorter more lukewarm baths and make sure to add oils, as they leave your skin soft and supple. Pat your skin dry afterwards and remember- add a layer of moisturizer from head to toe!
Pay extra attention to them and remember to moisturise them each time you wash your hands. After exposing your hands to water, gently pat hands dry and apply a dollop of hand cream while skin is still damp to lock in moisture. 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. Look for your hand cream to include hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, antioxidants, Shea butter and essential fatty acids for the most effective hydration possible. Keep a tube in your handbag, one near your desk and one at your sink, so you remember to apply throughout the day.
