With winter right here our skin is always the first to feel the effects. A few ideas on how to keep our skin “living well” in the colder months.
- DRINK WATER
Drinking water keeps your body hydrated and helps it to flush out toxins and carry nutrients to your cells, which promotes healthy, hydrated skin.
Tip: Get yourself a nice BPA free 750ml bottle from Typo and refill it at least twice in the day. That way you will know just how much water you’ve had and if you need more.
Wash your face thoroughly with a facial cleanser or face wash, and pat the skin dry with a towel. Cleansing removes dirt, pollution and buildup from the pores, while providing antiseptic and antibacterial benefits to detoxify and reduce congestion in the skin helping to keep it clear.
Tip: Makeup removal is the first step in the cleansing routine
Exfoliating daily can have a huge impact in the texture and brightness of your skin, because it clears away the dead skin, pollution, and environmental toxins that accumulate on the surface of our skin every day.
Tip: Use the right kind of exfoliation for your skin type to get the best results and avoid skin irritation.
- TAKE A BREAK
It always a good idea to give your face a break from makeup so that your skin can take a good deep breath. For those with sensitive or acne prone skin, this provides a rest from fragrances, allergens, preservatives, and oils.
Tip: . At least once a week, spend a full 24 hours without makeup.
Apply a nourishing cream on your face and neck. moisturizing balances the water percentage within the skin layers. So soon after coming out the shower, always apply moisturizer.
Tips: Damp skin absorbs moisturizer faster than dry skin.
