Everyone is complaining that we have experienced one of the harshest Winter in so long. Degrees dropped dramatically and affected our skin with extreme dryness and other problems. Corporita Health and Beauty team is sharing with you our top ten tips to maintain the health of your skin this Winter.
Clean skin is an important step no matter what season we are in. However, in Winter, harsh soaps and strong cleansers will cause more dryness to your – already – dry and more sensitive skin. Choose a gentle soap-free cleanser with a pH. Usually, such purifiers do not produce a lot of foam, but it is OK, this does not mean they will not clean your skin thoroughly.
Mild exfoliation is essential during the cold weather to get rid of the chappy dry layer on your skin. This step not only will remove dead skin, but it will also allow the new layer to absorb the moisturizing products you use later. Choose exfoliating products that include fruit enzymes and avoid the more strong exfoliating agents such as lactic acid or glycolic acid.
Choose products that moisturize your skin. For example, opt for a moisturizing toner or face mist to balance out your skin’s pH. For makeup removers, use moisturizing removers that can remove your makeup without stripping your skin of moisture.
- Hydrate Effectively
There is a difference between moisturizing and hydrating and both are equally essential steps in your Winter skincare routine. Select a hydrating liquid serum an use it regularly before you use a moisturizing cream.
- Lock Moisture In
Moisturizing products of high quality that include active ingredients such as glycerin, jojoba oil, shea butter and mineral oils, will moisturize your skin, make it softer and smoother and will lock the moisture in and protect it from the elements.
- Treat Overnight
You might have been neglecting your skin while you are asleep during the summer months, but not in winter. Treat your skin using an overnight nourishing mask every few weeks. The overnight treatment will give your skin the boost it needs during the harsh winter months.
- Deep Moisturize Bi-Weekly
If it is hard for you to use a face mask overnight, try a thick moisturizing mask during the weekend and give yourself the spa treatment to rewind. Make sure that your skin is clean and exfoliated, so, the nourishing ingredients work their magic on your skin.
Lips might suffer extra dryness during the winter and crack. Find a high-quality lip palm. Have the lip balm handy in your purse and use it more often during the day. If you find your lips are parched, try exfoliating them gently before applying the palm.
In The Shower
We usually put great emphasis on the face neglecting the rest of the body. During the harsh winter months, you might find other parts of your body suffer extreme dryness. In the shower, and right after you clean your body thoroughly, lather the skin using body oil or shea butter to keep the moisture locked in.
Although the skin on our hands is not as sensitive as the skin on our faces, during the winter months, we need to take extra care of the hands. Keep your hand cream in your purse and use it several times during the day to keep your hands look elegant and feel smooth.
