Hey guys! Sorry for not posting so often since all of us have been so busy with the upcoming semester and all! I’m kinda here to do that since I kinda run/own the main site.
Anyway… new topic! I mean yes, we do hear this a lot: winter dries out the skin. It’s a terrible thing honestly. Personally, I’m stuck with oily, greasy skin in the summer, and very dry flaking skin in the winter. Almost everyone has gone through the same ordeal! I’ll skip right to it and give you some tips and suggestions on how to keep that skin of your flake free, hydrated, and glowing in the winter and all year round.
- I know almost everyone will say you need to drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin! Hydrating your whole body will make sure your skin stays plump and smooth through the frigid weather.
- Second to water, moisturizing your face is key to locking in the moisture. I usually clean my face with a hydrating cleanser and top it off with a hydrating mist before heading out. Now a days, you can purchase sleeping packs from stores. They help seal in the moisture when you sleep so you wake up with fresh skin!
- If your room is dry, try to use a humidifier. It’ll regulate the moisture in your room so you don’t wake up with dry patches on your skin.
- Make sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially the ones that have a ton of water in them like oranges. Not only will it help your skin look much clearer, eating the right kinds like bell peppers, will help keep those pesky pimples away.
- If you’re skin is usually dry all the time, try using sheet masks. You can buy a pack online from websites like Amazon. I use Korean name brand ones since they are my favorite! These masks are made from cotton and soaked in many types of different essences. The masks do things such as hydrating, brightening, moistening, and all the good stuff. Since that masks are soaked in this rich wonderful goodness, it feels super hydrating on the skin. After you peel it off, just pat your face and let it soak up the moisture.
- If you don’t have sheet masks in hand, you can try making your own mask. You can try a the usual cucumber or mash up an avocado and mix it in with either some plain Greek yogurt, honey, or olive oil.
- In order to have your moisturizing and hydrating products work more efficiently, make sure to exfoliate the skin. It’ll get ride of the dead skin cells that may be clogging your pores. Exfoliating will also help you achieve that winter glow that’s been popular.
Hope this was helpful enough for you guys! Protect that skin!
