Skin care tips for winter
In winter, the skin needs a rich care, because with the low humidity, a normal skin care is usually not enough.
Without regular care, the skin becomes particularly sensitive and dries out.
Drawing attention to just a few simple skin care tips can help support natural skin health and avoid winter adversity!
Try these tips to give your skin a fabulous look.
Winter skin care – moisturize skin more
Use a good winter moisturizer, because this is the key to retaining the natural moisture of your skin.
Try to use a moisturizer that contains ingredients like natural oils.
These ingredients contain essential fatty acids that our bodies need.
Jojoba oil is the most similar to our skin’s natural oil and works very well in synergy with our skin.
Other powerful oils include argan oil and almond oil naturally rich in vitamin E.
The advantage of these oils is that they are easily absorbed and they should not leave a greasy feeling on the skin.
Vitamin C Kick
Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, experts say.
It is known for its collagen boosting properties, which is essential for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of our body.
However, try to avoid oxidized vitamin C, because it can do more harm than good. Try to buy a high quality vitamin C serum or make your own:
- 4 tsp distilled water,
- 1/4 tsp vegetable glycerin,
- 1/4 teaspoon of pure aloe vera,
- 1/2 tsp L-ascorbic acid powder.
Mix water, glycerin and aloe in a small jar until it is a uniform mass. Add the vitamin C powder, cover the jar with a plastic lid and shake it until the vitamin C is dissolved.
Pour everything into a dark glass bottle. It is important to use colored glass because vitamin C oxidizes quickly!
This serum has a shorter shelf life than most cosmetics because the vitamin C oxidizes over time in water. So redo it about every 1-2 weeks.
Apply a moisturizing night cream on your face
You can also try using a night cream for your face. Night creams are made with natural ingredients like avocado oil, which slowly penetrate the skin while you sleep and restore the skin’s moisture content.
Exfoliation is very effective for your skin to slough off dead cells. It allows the skin to better absorb the moisturizer.
Find a good exfoliating mask and use it on your face and hands. After that, apply a moisturizer right away to really see a smoother difference.
Use natural DIY masks
Depending on your skin type, a DIY mask can be designed as a moisturizing treatment. Use natural moisturizing ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olive oil and jojoba oil, argan oil, banana and aloe.
In a small bowl, mix together the ingredients you’d like to use to create a cream or paste and apply to the skin for 10-30 minutes for lasting moisturization.
Winter time is often a much needed respite from hot summer weather and humid climates.
This shift in weather is often best categorized by low humidity and the potential for dry and itchy skin.
Take some simple steps to make sure you’re helping to support your skin’s natural health. Here’s how you can prevent winter from taking a toll on your skin!
