Skin care tips and tricks do not differ much in every season, however dry skin women have to be consistent with such care. Check out this article and learn how to look radiant and protected in the cold weather.
Skin care tips for winter
Basic against the cold
Although it sounds trite, this is one of the Skin care tips most forgotten during winter. In the morning and at night wash your face with some warm water; it will help you better absorb the creams you use and at the same time promotes oxygenation. Preferably do it with soap or neutral PH balanced face-wash.
During cold we are used to bathe with very hot water and that is totally wrong for the skin exposing it to such a high temperature as it causes dryness. So change your habits and opt for showers with warm water and for short periods.
If you think that there is no sun during winter and you need not use a sun block you’re wrong because the skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays. We recommend using a sun screen with 15 or 20 SPF for normal skin, or higher if the skin is very sensitive.
Make up foundation
The makeup foundation is the best choice for this season, it will create the effect of a second skin which of course will help you to protect. If you have oily skin, look for oil free makeup foundation.
Do not forget that a good diet and exercise are essential to have a beautiful body inside and out. Drink plenty of water, eat foods rich in vitamin C and exercise at least 30 minutes a day.
What you should do
In times of cold first thing you need is heating but it tends to dry the atmosphere and therefore your skin subjected to sudden temperature changes that cause dryness, blemishes, stretch sensation, etc. Also factors such as smoking and stress accelerate aging of the skin.
Masks for cold weather
For this season’s essential your best friends are the masks. Here are some easy choices to make with kitchen ingredients. Try it!
If you have a dry skin, it is likely to feel irritated during cold weather; you can fix it with medium tomato, 1 tablespoon of yogurt and a few drops of almond oil. For the process just shred the tomato, mix with the other ingredients and leave on your face for 15 minutes.
The oily skin instead has open pores that’s why you must not use a mask with many ingredients because it can make open pores issue worse. Use 1 egg, 2 tablespoons orange juice and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Just mix the ingredients and put it on your face for 15 minutes.
For this type of skin the chances of irritation are much high. You need: 1 egg yolk, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 drops lemon juice. Mix all the ingredients; apply a thin layer on your face and leave on for 20 minutes.
Last but not least, remember that areas like your knees and elbows are always prone to cold moisturize them with the cream that suits you. Remember that the skin is the prominent organ of our body, take care and protect it.
