Tips To Keep Your Skin Healthy, Hydrated and Luminous In The Winter

The cold weather came and with it, the hottest clothes, the warmth of the fireplace, but also the time has come to pay even more attention to the skin! Lower temperatures, wind and rain can alter the skin on your face, making it need different care from those you kept in the summer. It is necessary to pay more attention to hydration of the skin so that the effects of winter do not make much difference on the skin.
During winter, due to weather conditions, the excess of dry air, the skin tends to dry faster. For the skin to remain healthy, smooth and hydrated, it is advisable to take into account some care.
There are several types of skin: oily skin, combination skin, dry skin, sensitive skin and normal skin. In addition, there are young skins and mature skins and all these need specific care that must be adapted according to the lifestyle and seasons of the year to always maintain a beautiful and healthy skin.

In winter, the skin types that suffer most are dry skin, mature skin, and sensitive skin. The first does not generally exhibit a very high natural hydration level which is further diminished by low temperatures, the wind, and heat. Sensitive skins, on the other hand, are generally reactive skins that can give warning signs like redness, and dryness in this season of the year.
It is important to fill the nutritional deficiencies of the skin with suitable products and food so that it does not feel discomfort and that the appearance of the skin remains beautiful and luminous even on colder days.

Here are some tips and what types of products you can use to have a healthy skin during the winter.

How to keep a beautiful and healthy skin? 
  • Regularly clean the skin with a mild soap, those of glycerin are a great choice;
  • Use an exfoliant to remove dead cells and impurities;
  • Treat acne with special products;
  • Stay away from the stress: take time for face masks or leg creams, as well as being a great way to keep the skin looking more beautiful, helps to relax the mind and therefore leaves the skin brighter;
  • Always remember to use sunscreen (even and especially in winter) as it is the best way to keep your skin youthful (not what we most want?) And stain-free;
  • Use a deep nourishing daily cream in the winter. It can be the same range that you use in the summer but it should give to the skin of the face greater hydration;
  • Always use highly nutritious and sun protection indexed lip protection. Sun protection may be lower than summer sunscreen but should never be neglected;
  • Apply a moisturizing serum before your daily cream. Serum will help keep the skin of the face moisturized throughout the day;
  • Invest in a good night cream that allows the skin to recover from the aggressions of the cold, wind and the heat;
  • If you do not live without air conditioning, apply thermal water on the face regularly during the day, so that it does not lose water or give back;
  • Drink water and eat fruit to maintain an adequate hydration;
  • Apply a moisturizing mask one to two times a week, especially if you have a dry and mature skin;
  • If you have a sensitive skin, use suitable products that allow you to fight against signs of cold and heat;
  • The body also needs a greater hydration, since the use of more and warmer clothes cause greater dehydration. Apply moisturizing cream daily.
  • Enrich your diet with foods rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids such as blackberries, strawberries, walnuts, nuts, artichokes, almonds, flaxseed oil, cereals, grains, tuna, and turkey.
  • Avoid fried foods, besides being highly caloric they end up reflecting in the skin, leaving it oily, facilitating the appearance of pimples;
  • If you really want to have beautiful skin, never sleep with makeup, always remove it with a good astringent before going to sleep;
  • Sleep well, a good night's sleep can work wonders for your skin and beauty.

Body Lotion
Look for lotions that contain ingredients such as alpha hydroxides (A.H.A.), hyaluronic acid and glycerin. When looking for a moisturizing body lotion, consider two variants: hydrating lotion, which helps to moisturize, and an occlusive, which helps maintain the hydration of the skin. During winter, the skin tends to lose water due to weather conditions and excess dry air so it will need to replenish and balance the hydration of the skin after all the baths. To maintain hydration, dry the skin (without rubbing) with a soft towel and apply a moisturizing body lotion and a neutral pH.

Facial moisturizer
Look for moisturizers that contain ingredients like glycerin, antioxidants (vitamin C or E), softening oils (avocado oil or jojoba oil). Applying moisturizer to the face is essential to protect the face from severe weather conditions. In addition to the basic need for a humectant and an occlusive, such as glycerin, for example, antioxidants are also essential to combat the damage caused by free radicals. Ingredients that help soften the skin, such as avocado oil, help moisturize the skin without clogging the pores and reducing redness.
