Winter Beauty Tips for Your Skin, Hair and Lips
This season can play havoc with your skin, leading to dry, flaky skin and chapped lips, if adequate care is not taken.
Here are a few winter beauty tips that will help you keep your skin hydrated and glowing throughout the season.
Dry skin suffers more than oily skin so if you have dry skin, you should follow these tips more religiously. However, the following measures are helpful for all types of skin-
1. Watch Your Diet
Your skin texture depends not only on external treatments, but also on your food intake. A proper nutritious intake helps in rejuvenating the skin from within. Water is essential for our body. This helps in retaining the moisture of your skin as well as keeping skin disorders at bay. Fruits and vegetables in your daily diet release a lot of water into your system. Primrose syrup / capsules and olive oil in your diet aid in softening the skin.
2. Moisturise Daily
Cold weather and cool winds aggravate dry skin condition. Natural Moisturisers
and cold creams are a must during winters. Tone and moisture after each cleansing to preserve and replenish the moisture in your skin. Use a moisturising night cream
every evening. Apply a daytime moisturiser around your eyes
and on dry areas each morning.
3. Oil Therapy
Pamper you skin with a little coconut oil before a bath to heal dryness and chaps. Use a natural cleanser
that renders that extra suppleness to your skin.
Wait 30 minutes after bathing, or washing your face, before going out into frigid air. Splash your face with cool water when you come back inside as it’s known that extreme temperature changes can burst capillaries near the skin’s surface.
4. Include Flaxseeds and Almonds
Although it doesn’t necessarily taste fabulous, flaxseed oil can moisturise your body from the inside. Since it is rich in vital fatty acids, it can do a lot for your overall health. It is available in oil form as well as in capsule form.Give your skin lipid support from within by including soaked and blanched almonds, soaked walnuts and coconut oil in your diet which will definitely add wonders to your skin.
5. Lip Care
Avoid licking your lips and don’t bite the skin on the surface of your lips. The skin will never have a chance to heal if you chew on it. It will end up becoming thicker, giving you black coloured lips. This is a hard habit to break but well worth the effort.
Keep lips covered with a good natural balm
applied several times during the day.
8. Hair Care
Don’t go outside with your hair wet as you may risk breakage. Avoid using blow dryers and curling irons on your hair. Even if you are using those equipments, apply conditione
r before using them.
So who said sunscreen is only for the summers? The sun is out 365 days a year and be it summer, rain or winter, you need to protect your skin from the sun. Photo damage could result in early wrinkling, and increase in pigmentation can occur if one does not apply natural sunscreen
