5 Ways To Keep Your Skin Hydrated This Winter
As winter slowly starts to arrive, our skin gets exposed to all the dryness, dust and the cold in the air which leads to our skin becoming very dehydrated, flaky and itchy.
With sensitive skin it gets much worse because it could lead to skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema which creates a bigger problem for us.
Here are a few ways you can try to protect the skin and keep it nice and moist.
- Switch Moisturizer:
Every season the skin has different requirements, in winter’s the skin requires a lot more care and nourishing ingredients. Buy a thick moisturizer for example; Nivea, Palmers Cocoa Butter formula, Jergens etc. They are deeply hydrating and an immediate relief from dry skin and any other discomfort.
2) Keep Lips Protected:
It’s always handy to keep a good lip balm or chap-stick in your purse, especially in winter when your lips tend to get very very dry. Licking them will only make them dryer because the saliva evaporates very quickly, therefore the best remedy for chapped lips is a soothing, protective lip balm which will keep the moisture locked in. ‘BODYSHOP’ has a great variety of lip balms you can try that’s meant to restore the lip barrier.
3) Choosing Hydrating Makeup:
Taking care of your skin is vital but its also important to make sure that the make-up we put on our skin is equally beneficial for it even in winters. Use cosmetics that will help keep your skin hydrated as well, such as L’Oreal Paris True Match Minerals is a great foundation or Neutrogena Hydro Boost. The bareMineral foundation will leave a nice dewy look to your skin.
4) Replenish Moisture On Your Skin:
Our hands are very often exposed to the dryness and the cold air, which is why it is necessary to keep them warm and moisturized. After washing your hands you should put on a good cream that will make your hand feel soft and protected from the dryness in the air.
5) Don’t Neglect Your Body:
It’s natural to have the urge to take a hot shower, during winters, especially when its the weekend and your thinking of just relaxing with a good bath. However, you should try avoiding harsh, stripping soaps and body washes, and instead use non-irritating, moisture replenishing body moisturizer, on clean and damp skin, for example; ‘BODYSHOP’ body butter, or Vaseline cream. Also try taking warm baths rather very hot ones.
These steps should help you have cosy and comfortable winter.
