Winter Beauty Dos And Don’ts
Posted On Nov 17, 2016
The frigid temperatures in the cold weathered months can potentially frighten your skin. Yikes! Luckily to avoid this unfortunate mishap from occurring we’ve put together some of the essential beauty dos and don’ts to help avoid dull and dehydrated skin.
Sun Blocker: Using sunscreen isn’t limited to the sweltering heated months. It should also be worn during the winter and applied at least 30 minutes prior to stepping out into the blistering cold to help protect your skin.
Eliminate Hot Water: Who doesn’t love a hot steaming bubble bath or shower. As refreshing as it may feel hot water, unfortunately strips your bodies skin of natural oils. To maintain your skins moisture try bathing in lukewarm water instead.
Moisturize Your Skin: A rich moisturizer is worth the investment during the colder months. Your skin requires extra protection because a light summer lotion definitely won’t do the trick! If you’re in need of a new winter moisturizer we found that Vineyard Hill Naturals, Milk & Honey Body Butter, is the perfect combination towards achieving well-balanced, rejuvenated, healthy skin.
Healthy Hair: Washing your mane more than three times a week can strip your hair of natural oils. Over shampooing your hair can also create split ends, dry scalp and a whole lot of frizz.
Dry Brushing: This is a technique that helps keep pores clean and unclogged while simultaneously boosting circulation. It also eliminates dead skin cells, toxins and aids in minimizing cellulite. Before jumping in the shower, try using a natural bristle brush in a gentle, circular motion. Trust us, your skin will exude radiance by looking and feeling better than ever!
Take Care of Your Toes: Although our feet are constantly covered in the winter, it is still important to treat your toes to a fresh pedicure from time to time. This helps maintain your nails natural health, preventing them from splitting and becoming extremely rigid.
Exercise Regularly: Maintaining a regular exercise routine of 20-30 minutes at least three times a week can help you cope with the seasonal changes. It will also help prevent you from adding on the extra pounds also known as winter weight. Besides a little sweat has never hurt anybody! In fact, it actually releases endorphins which improves our skins circulation and illuminates a natural glow while lessening stress and insomnia.
Drink Up: Drinking plenty of water is not only limited to the humid months but it’s critical to stay hydrated all-year round. Drinking at least eight glasses of water each day allows your body to flush away toxins, sustain a controllable appetite as well as keep your skin cells well-nourished.
