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.
