3 Tips For Keeping Your Skin Glowing In The Winter Months
Yay! We love this time of year! Gingerbread lattes, faux fur, minced pies and mulled wine – all of our favourite things! Of course, we could do without the sleet and bitter winds messing up our hair and makeup, but with these amazing skin tips we’ve discovered, we’ll be able to ensure our skin doesn’t suffer during the winter months! Here’s how you can keep your skin glowing right through ’til spring.
Avoid hot showers!
There’s nothing quite like a hot shower or bath to really warm your tootsies when you get home from work, but this winter, we’d advise you to try and resist! The hot water can strip your skin of the oils it needs to stay healthy and stop going dry. Instead, try a lukewarm shower or bath. Leave your towel or dressing gown on the radiator, ready to step into as soon as you get out.
Exfoliate and moisturise
Exfoliating and moisturising tends to be the top of our lists during the summer, because we know it’s the best way to get a deeper tan! However, come winter, when we tend to cover up more, it becomes less of a priority. If you want to keep your skin looking radiant all year round, you must continue to exfoliate and moisturise more than ever! The sudden change in temperature and hopping from your cosy, heated house to the cold outdoors can really dry out your skin. Exfoliating and moisturising will help not only revive your skin, but protect it from the harsh weather too.
Don’t forget the water
If you’re anything like us you’re much more likely to opt for a peppermint mocha than a bottle of water at the coffee shop, but trust us, your body is crying out for the water! Your skin needs water to remain supple and healthy. If you can’t bear a cold drink on a freezing day, warm your water and add a little lemon to make a comforting and refreshing drink!
