– Use skin oil and serums before applying your moisturizer.
Incorporate a skin oil or serum for hydration, increased nourishment and skin brightness this winter. They also help in strengthening skin cells. Using a moisturizer with vitamin D during the winter will give your skin a protective barrier and help to restore the levels lost during the gray months. These products are able to deliver a much greater concentration of nutrients, deeper into the skin.
– Be gentle when you take a shower.
Shortening the amount of time you spend in the shower and turning down the water temperature can help lock in moisture and keep your skin from drying out. Moisturize right after your shower with a body oil or lotion for best results.
– Stay hydrated.
It’s just as important to hydrate your body by drinking lot of water as it is to moisturize the skin.. Dry, cold air dehydrates you inside and out, so drink extra during the winter months. Incorporate more herbal and green teas into your daily routine, and increase your water consumption in order to stay hydrated and refreshed. Oils or serums are also very beneficial during the winter months to keep skin glowing.
– Don’t neglect your lips.
Use lip balm or hydrocortisone ointment on the lips over a lip pencil so the color bleeds into the lips and you get the look of lip gloss but the healing effect from the balm.
– Avoid hats in winter.
Hats contribute to flyaway, dull and tangled hair. To stay warm, use ear muffs or a headband instead to prevent winter frizz caused by woolen hats.
