Glowing skin can be simple when you have longer days of sunlight, temperatures are above 70, and the air is full of humidity. Unfortunately, if you live in an area where you experience the winter season, this can be quite the opposite. However there is still hope, and today we are going to share with you a few practical ways to get glowing skin, even during the winter season.
Firstly, let's remember that the air is usually drier, during the winter season, this means that you want to create a routine that infuses moisture and/or water. This can help to prevent excess water loss and dry or irritated skin conditions.
Turn down the Thermostat
If you have the heat blasting all day long in the office, car, or home, this can draw water out from your body. In addition to this, having the heat up while wearing heavier clothing, can cause you to lose even more water. Of course, you'd want to wear suitable clothing that can keep you warm, but you may want to bring the thermometer down a bit, to prevent excess much moisture from escaping your body.
Drink More Water
It can be a challenge to want to drink water when it is cold outside, but there are ways to get around it. Instead of just drinking cold water, you can opt for herbal infused waters that have a bit of flavor to keep you motivated enough to drink water. If you drink caffeinated beverages, you may also want to increase water intake, because caffeinated drinks can cause you to lose water. You can make a goal of drinking 2 cups of water for every 1 beverage that contains caffeine.
Use Facial Mist
Herbal infused facial mists and floral hydrosols can help soothe parched skin by putting moisture back into your skin. Look for ingredients like rose, lavender, chamomile, or aloe vera to help replenish and revive your skin.
Use a Humidifier
A humidifier can help to counteract the effects of dry heat in your environment. Having more water in the air can help keep your skin from becoming dry and cracked, or irritated. Even your house plants may enjoy the moisture.
Use Oil Facial Cleansers
Oil facial cleansers gently cleanse the skin without robbing your skin of the moisture it craves. Oil cleansers are great for removing dirt, and even makeup from your skin. These cleansers can even be used on oily skin. Before using a product, make sure it is formulated for you skin type.
Eat more Healthy Fats
Salmon, olive oil, avocado, nuts, eggs, and seeds are all great sources of Omega 3 and 6, which help to add radiance to your skin and protect the cell membrane within your skin. These foods can also help you feel support a healthy whole food eating lifestyle.
