Winter Skin Care Tips to Keep Moisturized Glowing Skin
Winter is a glorious season, but it comes with its challenges as we face chilling winds that draw moisture straight out of our skin. We also loose moisture as we crank up the thermostat in our cars and homes.
Dull, dry, even red cracked skin is often the end result.
Want to Avoid These Outcomes?
Try the following tips below…
1. Hydrate from the Inside Out
Keep drinking those 8 glasses of water and also consider adding extra omega-3‘s that help replenish your skin lipid barrier and protect it against moisture loss. My favourite go to is my breakfast Budha yogurt bowl where I add omega rich nuts such as walnuts, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds and pre-soaked Chia seeds. Top with banana slices & raspberries for an all around healthy and nutritious breakfast.
2. Add a Humidifier in your Bedroom
If you live in really dry, cold places, a humidifier in your room will help add moisture to your skin.
3. Warm Showers & Baths
A hot bath or shower certainly warms you up but it dries out your skin especially on your face. Extreme temperatures damage your skin moisture barrier preventing it from locking in the moisture it needs to remain soft and smooth.
Here in Vancouver, BC we have such damp cold that I still tend to have too hot of a bath so I like to apply organic olive oil after my body lotion to restore that barrier.
Winter Skincare Products Recommended to Protect Your Skin
1. Cleansers that are gentle and pH balanced.
Avoid cleansers that have alcohol as they will strip your skin of its natural oils that hold in moisture.
2. Serums that use hyaluronic acid.
HA it’s natural and one of the best moisturizing ingredient. Look for one that use multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid so it will penetrate all levels of your skins dermis.
3. Moisturizers that use probiotic technology.
This simply means the ingredients are fermented to break them down which make them highly absorbable.
4. Face Oils are a must during winter.
Select one that has multiple skin nourishing oils such as moringa, jojoba, marula to name a few.
