While quilts, beanies, gloves and scarves allow us to brave the elements, the harsh winter can ruin our complexion. As temperatures drop and the air becomes drier, skin takes the toll of being less able to protect itself. Between the biting winds, the cold outside, and the low humidity and dry heat inside, winter can wreak havoc on the skin , with dehydration, redness, dryness, irritation and more. It's time to update your skin care to keep it healthy, soft and hydrated for months to come. This season, we must be well aware of how to nourish and moisturize the skin, what to do and what to avoid.
Find out below the beauty tips to get the indispensable excess of hydration and how to deal with the other annoying problems that we would like to be able to solve every winter.
First of all it is important to hydrate from within. Our body is 60% water and when we drink water to prevent dehydration, we are actually also helping circulation, strengthening muscles and supporting the hydration block in our skin.
Exfoliate gently and regularly for a healthy glow.
It is the first essential step to mitigate the dehydration of dry skin. Surface buildup of dead skin cells can prevent moisturizers from penetrating. The exfoliator helps the skin absorb the nourishing and moisturizing active ingredients faster and better, and the skin tone also improves. A peeling twice a week frees dry skin from excess dead cells and restores a fresh and luminous complexion. Naturally, overly energetic peelings should be avoided, opting instead for softer scrubs such as the apricot exfoliating scrub that you can discover here: https://www.maternatura.it/prodotto/scrub-esfoliante-allalbicocca-per-viso-e-corpo/
Nourish the skin..how?
Winter calls for targeted skin care. During the other months we may have skipped a day of toner or rushed out applying just a dash of day cream, but when the weather hits hard, our beauty routine needs to be more nuanced to address the different issues that show up. In principle we would need a suitable cleansing product, a cream to obtain 360° results. Find the one that's right for you here: https://www.maternatura.it/categoria-prodotto/viso/
Treat the ends!
It's bad enough to have frozen fingers and toes but cracked or even cracked skin on your lips, feet, heels, hands or elbows during the winter can be an uncomfortable and sometimes even painful experience. We also remember to always carry a hand cream with us to apply every time we wash them or at least a couple of times a day.
Moisturize from the outside by investing in a humidifier or vaporizer.
What do humidifiers do? Central because even internal heat sources (radiators, heat pumps) can contribute to dry and chapped skin, making it dull and rough. Humidifiers or vaporizers humidify the air in the rooms and with the possible support of essential oils, help improve the tone and hydration of the skin and hair. They can also help relieve symptoms of dry eyes, eczema, itching, dry nasal passages and chapped lips.
Bath and shower: shorten the times.
On cold winter mornings, long hot baths or showers tempt us, but strip the skin of its natural protective oils, making it drier and even more itchy. It is better to shorten the bath and shower time to about ten minutes or even less, lower the water temperature, use very sweet shampoo, shower gel or shower gel and then immediately apply a moisturizing and nourishing cream while the skin is still damp to fix the hydration.
