Winter is right around the corner which means no sweat or heat. Dropping temperatures reduce our skin’s moisture levels and deplete its natural defenses. Our body tries to retain heat by narrowing the blood vessels, making our skin dry and dull, resulting in ugly looking cracks and flakes.
Change in temperature = Bad day with Skin / Hair
Be prepared to welcome winter, with some top tips and treatments listed below :
1. Stay Hydrated
- Establish a daily drinking water goal, as it is is one of the easiest ways to keep track of your water consumption.
- Carry a water bottle wherever you go, as it acts as a physical reminder to stay hydrated.
- Consume fluid-filled foods like orange, cucumber, watermelon, and yogurt to sneak in more water into your daily diet.
Deep Cleansing is an important step in facial treatment. Regardless of your skin type, deep cleansing is extremely necessary. It is all the more necessary if you are prone to blemishes. This step helps in unblocking clogged pores while promoting healing and restoration. The dust and dirt that has penetrated deep into the skin are thoroughly removed in this process. Clean skin allows facial treatment to give unsurpassed results.
3. Choose your moisturizer wisely.
A great, lightweight moisturizer applied beneath a Serum or face oil is an unstoppable combination. The moisturizer gets to the heart of the skin’s hydration needs. That said, be sure to choose your moisturizer carefully: opt for one that’s free of petroleum-based. Ingredients as this can actually do more harm than good by temporarily hydrating skin, only to go on to block pores and cause the skin to suffocate. Instead, find a moisturizer with nourishing, gentle plant-based ingredients. At Desire Aesthetics, our treatments are personalized to meet your needs & get back your glow and radiate beauty.
4. Sun-Screen is Important.
Yes, You Need Sunscreen in Winter. The sun’s effect on your skin is probably the last thing on your mind during winter. In reality, the sun can just as easily damage your skin in the winter cold as it can in the summer heat. Sun damage also eventually leads to premature skin aging, discoloration and in some cases, skin cancer. Wear a quality sunscreen that protects your vulnerable skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Apply it whenever you spend time outside.
5. Scrub it out
Exfoliating is an integral part of winter skincare. Though it may seem counterintuitive to scrub your skin when you’re trying to make it look blemish-free.
As we try to get as much moisture as possible into the skin, we need to clear a path for those products to penetrate. so remember to exfoliate at least once a week to remove all the dead cells from your skin.
Physical exfoliants – Uses granules to physically scrub off dead skin cells. It can be too harsh for already vulnerable winter skin and result in damage or further dryness.
Instead, try a Chemical peel/exfoliator – Don’t let the name scare you. It’s a Chemical peel that gently dissolves the top layer of dead skin and washes it away.
This is a much kinder exfoliation method and won’t lead to more flakes.
6. Don’t forget your Lip balm
A good lip balm is essential because it creates a protective barrier between your lips and frigid winter temperatures. It moisturizes your lips so they stay hydrated no matter how dry and cold the weather is. Lip balm also promotes healing, so if your lips do get chapped, the skin will recover quickly and more easily if you apply natural organic lip balm. It also seals any cracks in the skin, so if you do get chapped lips, they won’t be as open to infection and irritation.
7. Now to your Hair – Nourish your scalp
No matter how much you like the cold breeze that blows through the hair, it can cause damage. Your scalp also faces the wrath of winter just like your skin and becomes itchy and develops dandruff. As we already know, applying oil is a must to retain healthy hair, during winter it becomes a necessity. Choose organic oils, depending on your preference.
