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.

Summertime Necessities!

FYBC 7:6Part of feeling and looking your best lies within the little details. We all have our go-to summer fragrance, nail color, and hairstyle, but what about the seasonal essentials you may have overlooked? Here are 4 beauty essentials to incorporate into your summertime routine.

Facial Care- Since sun exposure is tough to avoid during the summer months, a great facial mask will come in handy. For some, the sun can dry out the surface of the skin whereas, for others, skin can become oil. Regardless of the effect, the sun has on your skin, a facial can help skin equalize and return to its normal state. If you are looking for a more personal, custom skin care, enlist the help of a professional.

Hair Removal- Short shorts, bikinis and pool days mean you need a reliable way to maintain unwanted body hair! Although shaving and waxing at home are easy, it is certainly not the best approach. Finding the help of a professional means that you don’t have to deal with painful razor burn and embarrassing razor bumps. If you are new to waxing in a salon, you will be pleasantly surprised with how pain-free and quick the process is. Find a salon you can trust and spend fewer summer days hiding shaving/waxing mishaps.

SPF Moisturizer- One of the easiest ways to ensure you are always protected from the sun is to use a skin moisture that has SPF incorporated into it. This is a great way to minimize your exposure to damaging UV rays and hydrate your skin. Look for a moisturizer with an SPF level of at least 30.

Tinted SPF Lip Balm- The perfect lip balm is a dime a dozen! Although there are so many great ones out there, finding a scent, shade and consistency that you love can be hard. Our personal favorites include the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment by Sephora, Jouer Lip Sheer in Santorini and Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Healthy Blush.
