Lisa from Montreal, Canada e-mailed us because she needed tips agains a dry winter skin she suffers every winter from. Well Lisa, and all people who suffer from a dry winter skin, here are 3 important tips.
- Your diet
The food you eat, affects your skin. Eating avocados helps a lot, it moisturizes your skin inside out. But Fresh orange juice also helps your skin because te vitamin c helps to get rid out the toxins in your skin.
Other winter superfoods (I actually hate that overrated term) are:
– All fruits with a high dosage of vitamin C helps
- A thick (anti-aging) cream
Avoid using to much mudmasks in the winter, because it dries your skin out. Also avoid harsh cleansers, wash with a non-soap liquid cleanser, preferably one with ceramides to replenish the skin’s outer layer.
Use a thick anti-aging cream without alcohol after you have cleaned your face and before you go outdoors. Remember a thick cream doesn’t have to be expensive. Not using a good moisturizer, means faster aging.
- Warm shower, Not hot.
A steamy shower feels good, but that hot water is not a good idea for your dry skin.
When you hit the shower, try a lower temperature and don’t linger too long. Skin care experts recommend short, normal-warm showers or baths that last no longer than 5 to 10 minutes.
Always pat dry and moisturize your body afterwards.
