Winter is about to make an entrance in a big way in a few weeks time and it is time to start prepping your skin for this change. While the cosmetic shelves in every supermarket are flooded with options you don’t have to worry about spending money on being safe this winter. With the help of our tips and guidelines you will be able to flaunt soft, silky and gorgeous skin throughout the season.
In order to take care of your skin you need to focus on the physical as well as the mental aspect. Rather than investing in products that are expensive you need to invest time into following a strict skin care regime. One of the main steps in a winter skin care regime is exfoliation. Normally most women let go of this step during winter and this results in dry flaky skin. When you exfoliate your skin you will be able to get rid of the dead skin and reveal soft smooth skin cells.
Exfoliate your body with a soft loofah or an exfoliating scrub. It is best to exfoliate your skin when you are taking a shower. After you have taken care of this step you must use a rich moisturizing cream on your body in order to seal in moisture and soften your skin. Lotions that contain Shea butter, cocoa butter or those products that contain glycerin help to lock in moisture.
Bathing in milk once a month in winter will help to promote healthy skin and prevent dry skin. Add some milk powder to your bath water and soak in it for a few minutes. This will help to nourish your skin and reveal healthy glowing skin.
Massage your entire body with almond oil or coconut oil every night in winter. The oils will nourish your skin and reveal soft glowing skin through the season.
The mental stress of the holiday season takes a huge toll on your skin and complexion thus it is important to control your stress levels. Take relaxing baths, ensure that you get adequate sleep and also ensure that you eat healthy meals as often as possible to keep your skin in good condition. Avoid eating foods that are rich in fats and oils as they will increase the amount of oil in your body and this may lead to acne breakouts.
