Winter is synonymous of cold, dry weather with low levels of humidity. This combination may end up leaving your skin pretty dry. It has an opaque appearance, rough, without elasticity and it peels off.
Unfortunately, dry skin can result in minor abrasions that can be germs and other microorganisms. When dried, the skin has its protective function compromised. So at this time of year, care must be reinforced.
To take care of your skin in the best way, it is important to always pay attention to the products used. When cleaning your skin, especially your face, you should choose techniques that remove impurities, but without promoting the dryness or accentuation of wrinkles. Give preference to natural products, based on chamomile or with plant extracts. These have the function of regulating the pH and moisturize the skin leaving it looking healthier.
Here are some essential skincare tips in winter:
- Shower temperature: Do not abuse hot and long baths. They also make the skin more dry.
- Daily hydration: Use moisturizing lotions, preferably right after bath. Pay attention to rougher parts of the body such as elbows, heels and knees. Also use specific products for the face.
- Escape air-conditioning heaters: It is most commonly used in summer, but we often use it in cold weather, at work or in the car. Avoid it as much as you can, as he steals water from the body and it makes it drier.
- Drink plenty of water: Drinking two liters of water daily is not an indication only for summer, it is for all seasons. In winter, water also helps to moisturize and avoid all those problems caused by the low temperatures.
Preventing skin dryness is the best beauty treatment for this winter.
