Basic Skin Care Tips You Should Follow During Winter

FYBC 2:6

Extreme weather temperatures, either hot or cold can do harm to your skin. However. Winter, in particular, can make your skin dry up and flake due to the dry wind and chilly conditions. Your regular skin regimen won’t help in such times. It’s true, during the winter months your skin needs a bit more pampering than usual in order to stay healthy and continue glowing. Here at a few winter tips for your complexion that stop dryness and dull looking skin in its tracks.

Cleanse

Regardless of the product you use, cleaning your face is a MUST! In fact, it’s a skincare step you should follow all year, no matter the season. In winter, you should limit the number of times you wash your face (2-3 times)! It is also helpful to alternatively cleanse your face with cold milk and a cotton ball, which prevents dryness.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin with a quality scrub is help any season. But like cleansing, you want to limit the number of times your scrub your face during the winter. Scrubbing too much can cause abrasion and make your skin drier. A way to eliminate the chance of over-exfoliating your skin, consider using a mild exfoliating scrub. You can enhance your experience but making your own scrub with natural ingredients available at your home.

Try this DIY recipe:

  • 2 tbsp. mashed ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp. of a mashed apple
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 dollops of your Mild scrub.

Mix all the ingredients and gently scrub your face for 2 minutes in circular motions. Washing it off with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

Toning To Tighten

Always use a toner that is chemical free! The harsher the toner, the more likely it is to disturb the PH levels of your skin. The purpose of a toner is to remove the post-cleansing residual dirt from your skin. Not to mention, toning tightens your skin and better prepares your skin to absorb any moisturizer or night serum you apply later.

Moisturize

Moisturizing isn’t necessary for only those with dry or flaky skin, but all skin types. You should always use a natural moisturizer, ones that contain extra virgin olive oil or almond oil.

4 Ways Cold Weather Can Benefit Your Skin

FYBC 1:16.jpg

Often times when we think winter, we think cracked hands, dry skin, basically all the unsavory skin conditions that the cold inflicts on us. But, since there are many more months of cold weather ahead, we have looked into some of the perks of freezing temperatures. Here are 5 ways that the cold actually helps your skin!

1. Helps Keep Pores Clog-free.

The great news is that the cold weather helps reduce and keeps pores less visible and refined. Acting as a sort of tonic or astringent. the cold weather slows down the secretion of sebum which reduces acne and keeps the shine away.

2. It Can Improve your Sleep.

Getting a full night’s rest is necessary for skin health and wellness, from reducing under eye circles to keeping your skin glowing. High heat during the nighttime is proven to disturb sleep whereas the cold supports the body’s natural temperature drop during sleep. Research shows the colder the temperature in the room, the better sleep you will have.

3. It Can Reduce Puffiness

The cold promotes blood circulation in both the body and the face, which reduces inflammation and swelling!


4. It Can Help With Anti-Aging.
The cold enhances your complexion and rejuvenates your skin. It also slows down the aging process—think of cryotherapy spa treatments or splashing cold water on your face in the morning—and keeps skin tight and vibrant.

Give Yourself A Post-Holiday Detox

fybc 28.jpgHappy almost new year! Hopefully, your holiday season was everything that you wished for and you are looking forward to the rest of your year. Feeling very positive about the year ahead but maybe a little guilty about your over-indulgences? Read along for some basic post-Christmas detox tips.

Exfoliate
Exfoliating and dry body brushing are fantastic ways to help to boost circulation and improve the appearance of dulling skin. Both of these methods offer a great vitality boost for neglected skin. Start your first week of detox with a gentle exfoliation mask or face wash every two days, then drop back to once a week as you do not want to damage delicate facial skin. The body, however, can benefit from dry brushing every day. For glowing skin, brush your skin daily, towards the heart, from your feet upwards.

Cleanse

The rich foods and alcohol we consumed of the holidays tend to be more than usual, which means now is the time to cleanse the body of those additional toxins. A great first step is to start each day with a cup or glass of warm pre-boiled, or cold bottled water, with some added lemon juice. This is a fantastic detoxifier and your body will thank you for it! Avoid alcohol and caffeine (if possible) completely for the period of your detox.

Diet

If you haven’t already, give your body a break from heavy, rich or processed foods including red meat and products that contain wheat. Try to keep dairy to a minimum (a probiotic yogurt or eggs). Smoothies and organic vegetable soups provide a great meal alternative to a detox.

Aromatherapy Oils

Patchouli, lemon, juniper, grapefruit or geranium oils are all great for detox. Add 6-8 drops to your bathwater for the best results! It is always a good idea to patch test any oils that you have not previously used before including them in your detox in the event of any sensitivity.

Exercise

Exercise is the best thing you could include in your detox plan. Yoga is a fantastic option for both mind and body and as little as ten minutes in the morning and ten in the evening will help you to remain focused, relaxed and better able to deal with cravings.

Certain Ingredients For Your Thanksgiving Meal Can Make Your Skin Shine

fybc 11:21

Although professional facials are our forte here at FYBC, we are never opposed to a little DIY skin care. In fact, we have put a list together of Thanksgiving Day foods staples that are good for your skin. Who would have thought that your favorite Turkey Day meal is also a facial?

Cranberry

Not only are cranberries high in collagen-building vitamin C, they contain ellagic acid, which helps prevents wrinkles by blocking the formation of an enzyme that breaks down elastic tissue. So, coat your face with it in between meals or eat it with bread. Whichever way you choose to take advantage of the power of these tart berries, you are winning.

Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor and your dermatologist away. Apple extract is commonly found in anti-aging lotions. Why? Apple contains malic and mandelic acids which reduce skin discoloration and scarring.  

Pumpkin

We have talked about the positive effects of pumpkin before but in case you missed it, here is the scoop on the pumpkin. Pumpkin is a rich source of vitamin A, C, and E and contains essential fatty acids that keep your skin protected from free radicals.

Cinnamon

Just about every Thanksgiving meal contains cinnamon. It’s a wonderful spice that not only tastes amazing but it can improve your skin. Cinnamon helps fight acne by boosting circulation!

Thanksgiving leftovers are your best friend this holiday season. Be sure to try out a few of these ingredients and share your results with us!
