We’ve got 6 easy solutions to help beat the cold weather conditions
1. Avoid Really Hot Showers:
A hot bath or shower might feel great but long exposure to hot water strips moisture from your skin. Warm water in a shorter duration is your best bet during these cold winter days.
2. Exfoliate Often:
Skin cells dehydrate and dry faster during the winter season. Exfoliating helps clear away dead skin cells leaving the top layer of skin ready to absorb products. This allows you to get the most out of your moisturizer. Give Tri-Active exfoliant by iS Clincical a try. This highly effective exfoliant combines powerful botanical enzymes, salicylic acid and eco-friendly micro-beads which provide ideal physical and biochemical exfoliation.
3. Moisturize More Often:
Your skin not only needs more moisture, but moisture right after you wash. Choose an oil-based moisturizer over a water-based option. Oil helps protect against moisture loss by creating a protective layer on the skin. A really good option this winter is Reparative Moisture Emulsion by iS Clinical. This intensive, rejuvenating moisturizer is formulated with pharmaceutical-grade botanicals, peptides and powerful antioxidants. It smooths, re-hydrates, and plumps parched skin and is great for all skin types.
4.Don't Forget Your Sunscreen!
Most people want to tend ease up on sunscreen use during the winter months, as the sun feels weaker and they are less likely to burn. Just because it’s below zero doesn’t mean the sun’s rays go on vacation. Sunscreen needs to be worn all year round! and a favorite of ours is Sunforgettable by Colorescience. This 100% natural mineral sunscreen offers powerful SPF 50 UVA/UVB protection, alone or over makeup and is water/sweat resistant up to 90 minutes.
5. Hydrate From the Inside Out:
Water is vital in keeping you healthy but also your skin cells full and hydrated. By upping your water intake you are reducing the risk of chapping and peeling. So to keep your skin healthy, hydrated and glowing this winter drink more water.
6. Eat Healthy:
It's true what you eat does effect not just your health and waistline but also your skin. One thing you could stay away is from salty, processed foods which can rob your body of much needed moisture.
