Skin care in winter

Postby Angelina David » Fri Dec 07, 2012 6:57 am

Image1. It is time to get out the heavy-duty moisturizers. A highly protective day-care cream with appropriate SPF is an essential barrier to protect your skin against the elements
2. Creamy, water-in-oil emulsions are best as they hydrate your skin while also protecting them from loss of moisture in the cold winds.
3. Chapped lips are most noticeable in winter. Use a moisturizing lip balm with vitamin E in it if you want to avoid looking like you have some dreadful, peeling skin disorder.Keep reapplying the balm with a chap-stick throughout the day.
4. Exfoliate! Dead Cells tend to pile up in winter and prevent the moisturizer from getting to the healthy skin. The oils in the skin are being produced at a lesser rate than in summer and due to this, skin tends to lose water that would otherwise have been retained in the lower dermis of the skin.
5. Dry skin can cause premature aging and fine lines can begin to appear in improperly cared for skin.
6. Detoxify your system with plenty of water. If you feel it difficult to gulp down room temperature water, heat your water and take it with a twist of lemon—a sort of watered-down version of lemon tea.
7. Everyone loves to cuddle up and sleep, burrowing under a pile of warm and toasty blankets while the temperature outside keeps dropping. Ensure you get your beauty sleep—7 h is decent if you cannot manage the full 8 or the luxurious 9 h in winter nights.
8. Sun protection is essential now as the outdoor weather conditions are such that moisture is invariably lost from the skin. Natural sunscreens featuring moisturizing ingredients such as aloe vera, cocoa butter and herbal oils can further protect your skin.
9. Moisturize as frequently as possible. Indoor and outdoor conditions are drier in winter and alternating a heavier emollient with a lighter emollient can have your skin feeling cared for while not having to deal with the greasy feeling.
10. Creams and lotions with Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic or lactic acid,can be effective in reversing dry skin and lines at deeper levels.
