How To Get A Perfect Skin For Winter
05 Nov. 2018 / Uncategorized
It can be challenging to take proper care of your skin, even under the best of circumstances. But in winter months when the weather turns cold and humidity levels drop, keeping your skin hydrated might become even more difficult. By taking extra care to keep your skin moisturized, you can avoid chapping, itchiness, and cracking. During winter time Dry patches build up on your skin’s surface, leaving you less than radiant no matter how much makeup you apply. Get your glow back by using a gentle exfoliate once a week, then follow that up with a layer of moisturizer while your skin is still damp and be sure to hydrate from within by drinking lots of water.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that winter means dry, itchy skin—and nobody wants that. Cream blush and eye shadow not only tend to have longer staying power than their powder compatriots, but they don’t settle into the flaky skin and make it look even drier. Also, Skin-ravaging UV rays are present year-round. Get in the habit of wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, no matter what the season. If you have dry skin as it is, using powder foundation will only leave your skin more dried out than before. The powder will cling to the dry areas of your face, making foundation look patchy, especially from up close.
1. When you’re trying to rehydrate your skin, it may seem like a good idea to soak in lots of water. But water can actually make dry skin worse, especially if you use hot, soapy water. Too much washing can strip the protective oils from your skin, leaving it vulnerable to drying. Keep your baths and showers short — 10 minutes or less — and use warm water rather than hot.
2. Using too much soap or hand sanitizers too often can also cause your skin to dry out. Use soap and hand sanitizers sparingly.
Only apply soap when and where you need it, such as under your arms, in your groin area, and on your feet. Choose mild, fragrance-free options that are designed to be less drying.
3. Skin moisturizers are important weapons in your arsenal for fighting dry skin. The right moisturizers can help you treat and prevent dry skin. There are four basic types of moisturizers that are available without a prescription.
Ointment moisturizers tend to trap the most moisture in your skin, but sometimes they can feel greasy. Petroleum jelly (Vaseline) is an example of this type of moisturizer.
