Winter Survival Guide: 3 Simple Hacks To Keep Winter Skin Away and have a soft skin naturally this winter
Winter is already around the corner. I I have a Hate love relationship with Winter. I love how beautiful It is when the snows. A And to my surprise at actually enjoy skiing. But my skin hate winter the dryness, the scratchy itchy skin; it is just not pleasant. Plus I have body hives that are worst during winter. Dermatologists say that the combination of lower humidity, increased winds and colder temperatures are the perfect storm for dryer skin.
So, I have this specific body skin care regimen to deal with dry skin on my body. Read about it here! I also have few tricks In my bag to deal with winter dry face and wrinkles. Did you notice how your fine lines get worst during winter? Or, those dry patches show even more? Ugh, winter...
We all heard it so many time: it is so important to keep your skin moisturized during winter. But, it is also about making sure we use natural skin care products that do not strip moisture from our skin.
This is what I learned: The first thing is to take care of two layers of our skin. The outermost layer the stratum corneum (made of dead cells) and the layer under the natural moisturizing factor - NMF (made of lactic acid, urea, salts and amino acids). Stratum is the first line of defense and NMF role is to maintain adequate skin hydration. [Source: Practical Dermatology].
Both layers needs good level of water to keep our skin soft and supple. In winter, the cold temperatures disturb the water content of these layers and the skin loses water and, becomes dry, flaky and wrinkled.
So, our job is to help maintain the water content in these two layers. It is so important to drink enough water during winter. Some of the water we drink goes to our ski and flush out toxins. But, here are three simple tweaks I did last winter and I had so many compliments on my radiant skin.
The first thing I did was to stop using abrasive exfoliators and anything that is alchohol based in my skin care routine. These are moisture stripping products. Our skin could be easily irritated and suffer from dryness during winter and these products can make it even worst. Switching to gentle exfoliators and peels helped my skin so much during winter. My skin was glowing.
