As we are adjusting to fall with the winter season to follow, we can start preparing ourselves for a proper dry skin care regimen.
Dry skin is the result of cold temperatures, low humidity and dry air from the furnace and electric heaters. In order to avoid having dry skin, you need to take measures to control the humidity in your environment and keep it locked into your skin.
A vital part of your skincare regimen, throughout the year and especially in the dry winter months, should be moisturizer. Choose an appropriate lotion for your face, both to keep it moisturized and to fight the signs of aging that come with thirsty skin. Wear chap stick, especially when going outdoors, and switch to a richer body formula when the temperatures drop, applying it directly after towel drying.
Sunscreen is imperative to apply during the winter weather despite those who are only convinced it’s used for hot weather purposes. The sun penetrates the skin at all times and it’s important we protect it during the cold temperatures just as we would during the hot ones.
Exfoliating dead skin cells from the body is undeniably one of the easiest ways to keep your epidermis looking delectable in all seasons, remembering not to overdo it.
Your body needs moisture inside as well as out to keep the skin lush and healthy. Consider kicking your habit for coffee, carbonated drinks, and tea (all of which are diuretics and can cause dehydration), opting instead for pure water, six to eight glasses a day.
Naturally, in the winter time we will opt for hot showers or baths, but keep in mind, this strips away skin’s natural oils. Other things that can cause this is deodorant bars, antibacterial soaps, perfumed soaps, and skin care products containing alcohol
Vitamin C is an essential supplement when it comes to the production of collagen. Zinc and Copper also help maintain collagen’s form and keeps the skin plump and hydrated.
We must try to remember not to neglect our skin’s health and by hydrating and replenishing skin’s nutrients properly, the effects of dry heat and cold air onto our skin can be avoided.
