Winter comes with many exciting things, from holidays to cozy evenings in front of a fire, but what it doesn’t bring is fabulous skin. No matter where you live, the cold does nothing but wreak havoc on the pores with its harsh winds, low temperatures, and dry atmosphere. Don’t be the victim this year. Take charge and keep up your healthy, glowing skin.
Hot cocoa and eggnog are only a few of the decadent drinkable desserts that flavor the season but it also means we drink much less water. Unfortunately, this is no way to keep that radiant glow. Though you don’t have to cut those winter favorites, be sure to remain diligent when it comes to downing the only liquid that will keep the skin supple and hydrated.
Winter is notorious for being the driest season and nothing makes skin look blander than a lack of hydration. With water working from the inside to counter this, it’s up to you to provide exterior protection. Moisturizers, especially those with vitamin E, replenish the lipids, or fats, found in skin cells that help them hold healthy shapes. The better those microscopic bits look, the better you look overall.
You can certainly achieve a glow with a bronzer, but nothing looks better than a natural glow. Though it’s tempting to stay locked inside all day, remember to get outdoors for at least 30 minutes. This will promote circulation and increase your personal glow, something that can’t be bought in a store.
Before heading to bed, wash your face and then apply either almond or coconut oil in a thin layer on whatever amount of skin you want to keep supple. This oil locks in your natural moisture while providing you with a healthy shine.
