Winter skin care poses a set of challenges that are a direct result of cold weather. The cold winter weather can be very harsh on the skin. Cold air and low humidity can rob your skin of moisture.
Indoor heat can further strip away moisture from the skin, leaving it dry and prone to cracking, chapping, redness and itching. You should take some steps to protect your self against dry skin. So here are a few simple tips to keep your skin healthy during the cold months:
Avoid hot showers – Only use luke warm water. Moisturize immediately after a shower or washing, to seal in the moisture. We recommend Dr. Spiller moisturizers from Spring Mist Spa with natural, hydrating ingredients like lavender, chamomile and jojoba. These ingredients help to soothe dry, itchy skin.
Drink water – Drinking plenty of water should be part of all good skin care regimes. Your skin needs hydration from inside out. Drink plenty of water. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time.
Consume fruits and vegetables with high water content – This will help to hydrate your skin from the inside out. Also, remember to Increase your intake of vitamin C and zinc to support healthy production of collagen and elastin.
Use homemade hydrating masks – Give your skin additional moisture by mixing a few natural moisturizing ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas and aloe. Create a paste or cream and apply to skin for 10-30 minutes for lasting hydration.
