If you wish your face would look as healthier as it does in summer, in winter, continue reading to discover a few tips which you can use to look after your skin this winter!
How to Take Care Of Your Skin During The Cold Winter:
- Make sure to moisturize your face twice a day, instead of once a day
While many individuals only moisturize their faces in the mornings, your skin will look far healthier, especially in the long, cold winter months if you make a habit out of moisturizing your skin twice a day. Ideally, you should use a lightweight moisturizer each morning and should opt for a more heavy duty, night specific moisturizer to hydrate your skin at night.
Although if you’re on a budget and can’t fathom purchasing two different moisturizers, you can use the same moisturizer on your skin, twice a day.
- Make sure that you hydrate regularly and drink plenty of water
If you fail to drink enough water in winter your skin will be more likely to look dry and scaly. Worse yet if you don’t consume enough water your face’s fine lines may look more prominent than if you were to drink at least 6-7 glasses of water per day.
- Invest in purchasing an eye mask or an eye cream to decrease the visible signs of under eye wrinkles
It’s well worth investing in purchasing a high-quality eye mask or an eye cream, which you’ll be able to use to try and decrease the signs or even get rid of under eye wrinkles. Which may cause you to look far older than you actually are. Just be sure to use the same product for a few weeks, before you give up on it as sometimes even quality eye masks or creams can take a couple of weeks to create visible results.
- Purchase a coat which boasts a large hood, which you’ll be able to use to shelter your face from the elements
Another item which you may be interested in purchasing is a coat which boasts a large hood which you’ll be able to pull over your head and tighten when you want to shelter and protect your face from the elements. Such as rain, gale force wind and frost.
- Limit the amount of time which you spend outdoors
Another tip which will help you improve the quality of your skin during winter is to limit the amount of time which you spend outdoors. As the longer, your face is exposed to the elements the more damage will be caused to your skin.
- Treat yourself to a hydrating face mask once a week
Another tip which you may be interested in following is to get into the habit of treating yourself to a hydrating face mask once a week. As a well-hydrated face will look youthful and fresh.
If you can’t justify paying to visit a spa on a weekly basis, don’t worry as you should be able to pick up an inexpensive hydrating face mask from your local pharmacy or even make your own.
If you follow the tips listed above, your skin will look as youthful and healthy as it does in summer, in the middle of winter.
