Thanksgiving is right around the corner…so is the winter, so are the low temperatures. Cold, dry air and heat both dehydrate our skin; leaving it dry, itchy and irritated. There are several ways to keep you skin hydrated during the winter months.
One way is to moisture the air in your house or office by using a humidifier. Humidifier adds moisture to the air by releasing water vapors.
Another way to help your skin feel less dry and itchy is to avoid long and hot showers, because they dehydrate the skin. You should also add a body moisturizer to your daily routine. After bath or shower, towel dry your body without rubbing and apply moisturizer while your body is not completely dry. Don’t forget about your hands. Our hands tend to dry and age first, because there are no oil glands to keep them hydrated. If possible, apply hand lotion after each hand wash. Ask us about the body moisturizer and hand cream that we offer.
Now, let’s talk about skin care for your face. To make sure your skin stays hydrated, don’t forget to exfoliate at least once a day, using daily polish or scrub and follow these steps as your daily skin care regimen:
Step one: use gentle milky cleanser to remove make up and wash away any dirt from the pores; towel dry, do not rub.
Step two: use tonic to balance, hydrate and purify the skin. Before the tonic is completely absorbed by your skin, apply serum.
Step three: use serum to protect, enhance, increase hydration, and sooth the skin. Before serum is completely absorbed by your skin, apply moisturizer.
Step four: use moisturizer to seal in the moisture from tonic and serum and to add antioxidant-rich blend of moisturizing ingredients.
To make sure your skin is still protected from the sun; use a moisturizer with at least SPF 15 (even in the winter).
