In winter, a big problem faced by most people is the dryness or brittleness of skin. For several, skin around sensitive parts starts exfoliating and peeling off in layers. It is important to therefore take care of our skin and hydrate it frequently during winters. Here are some ways in which skin can be kept moist and supple, radiant and glowing during winters.
Moisturize skin daily and nightly. If you find yourself out of energy at the end of a tiring day, find a moisturising make up remover that will do your job for you. It is important to protect skin from UV rays especially during winter. Although UV damage can damage skin all year round, in winter the snow and the sunlight glares can be even more damaging. Try investing in a tinted moisturizer with SPF to use as your foundation. Invest in a humidifier and have it on at night when your skin does the most replenishing work. This helps keep skin soft for very cold conditions where heaters are needed at home.
It is also important to take care of our internal bodily functions since they affect the skin and it’s outside glow. It is most important to drink as much water as possible. Winters reflect on the dryness of skin by dehydrating you internally. As much as it is needed to moisturize the skin on the outside, it is important to drink as much water as possible to keep healthy.
In winters it might be tempting to take long showers. However, try and limit showers and baths to ten minutes and keep the water warm to lukewarm. Staying in water for too long makes skin crinkly and wrinkly. In the summers you might want to avoid oil-based products but in the winter they will do your skin good. Use a radiance-boosting facial oil three times a week to remove dullness and replenish the top layers of your skin. Healthy eating is a must during winters. It is very important to get a good dose of vitamin A and C in your diet.
These are some healthcare tips to follow in order to maintain healthy and glowing skin in winter. Finally, keep healthy, eat healthy, drink healthy; all else shall fall in line.
