During the winter months, cold weather and low humidity levels can turn your skincare routine on its head. What is worse is that indoor heat can add to the problem by zapping the moisture from the air and from your skin. Well, your skin does not have to go through the entire season unprotected. You simply have to tweak your skincare regime to adjust for this unforgiving time of year. Here are 5 tips to follow when it comes to effective winter skincare.
- Invest in a humidifier to maximize moisture: Using a humidifier in your home will not only allow you to adjust the moisture in around you, but it will also help keep your skin from drying out. If you are concerned with electric costs, try running your humidifier (s) only in rooms where you spend the most time.
- Avoid hot showers and baths: Hot water can dehydrate your skin by destroying the natural oils that it produces. When you do shower or bathe, remember to use water that is hot but not too hot and to moisturize your skin immediately afterwards.
- Use supplementation: Retinol-A Cream, and CoQ10 Cream are just a few products that added to your skincare regime can help nourish and protect your skin. Retin-A (tretinoin) is a form of vitamin A that helps the skin renew itself. One way it helps is by unclogging pores so that other creams and moisturizes work more effectively. Kojic Acid can be used to treat skin conditions, such scars, and age spots. Finally, CoQ10 cream helps deliver antioxidants to your skin and it helps create collagen and elastin. These three creams should all be a part of your natural skincare
- Moisturize often: In general, people wash their hands more often in the winter months than they do in the summer months in order to avoid germs that cause colds and flu. Therefore, you can maintain healthy skin by moisturizing after washing up and by wearing gloves while you are washing dishes.
- Drink plenty of fluids: As you are moisturizing your skin and avoiding cold winds as much as possible, don't forget to hydrate yourself from the inside. Drink plenty of water or hot drinks like cocoa and tea, to replace sodas, sugar-filled juices, etc.
So you see, your skin does not have to go the brutal seasons of fall and winter unprotected. Simply tweak your skincare routine to adjust for this unforgiving time of year by using the above tips and by using our natural health products that are designed to hydrate, nourish and protect skin.
