Winter is here, and with it the joys of snow and family time. We may have taken out the big coats from the closets, this duck cold can have harmful consequences on the appearance of our skin! It is therefore imperative to take good care of your skin in winter with these 12 beauty and well-being tips!
Nourish your face
Your skin needs attention, so it's important to adapt and change your skincare routine depending on the season. When winter arrives, the skin needs more nutrition. So replace your makeup remover with a cleansing milk to nourish the epidermis. The milks contain moisturizing agents like shea butter and argan oil, but also vitamin E: these all help to take care of our skin in winter.
Don't forget the sunscreen
Even when you cannot see the sun, its effects are very present. To make it easier for you, choose a daily moisturizer that contains UV protection. This way you protect your skin from wrinkles and discoloration.
Drink enough, ie about eight glasses of water per day. It's one of the cheapest beauty tips and yet a lot of people forget about it. Hydrating from the inside shows on the outside. So drink water to have radiant and hydrated skin.
Stop smoking! (please)
Smoking decreases the flow of oxygen to the skin, causing it to look bland and grayish. In addition, the action of smoking accentuates the wrinkles above and below the lips.
Avoid too hot water
Taking baths or showers that are too hot dries out the skin in addition to facilitating hair breakage and the appearance of varicose veins. Taking care of your skin in winter is sometimes also resisting temptation!
Oil from time to time
Use facial oils to invigorate your skin and help your cells regenerate. The oils work in depth; moreover, the fact of applying them while massaging promotes microcirculation.
Use an eye cream
It is never too early (nor too late!) To use an eye cream. It is a great way to fight fine lines and wrinkles.
Exfoliate your skin
Use a gentle scrub to exfoliate the skin on your body and face about twice a week. This will help you get rid of dead cells, and will increase the effectiveness of your products by allowing them to penetrate more easily.
The face is good, but we must not forget the hands! They are also subject to aggression from the elements. So think about nourishing them with a moisturizer, preferably with UV protection.
Use a shower milk
If you tend to get dry skin after showering, and especially in winter, use a shower lotion or cream instead of soap. Some soaps tend to dry out the skin.
Don't forget the hair
Taking care of your hair in winter is just as important as taking care of your skin. For this, opt for a moisturizing shampoo, to strengthen your hair against external aggressions.
Speaking of good scent, why not take advantage of this new season to sport a new scent? Vanilla, musk, iris, exotic woods, white flowers, jasmine, magnolia or even patchouli, so many scents that will suit you perfectly in winter. And what could be easier than starting with clothes that smell great using Lenor's scented fabric softener?
A mask once a week!
If, despite all these tips, your face is still crying out for hydration, it's because winter must be really harsh! Don't panic, an ultra-nourishing and hydrating mask will help you take care of your skin in winter. And the effect will be visible almost immediately!
And you, how do you take care of your skin in winter?
