Caring For Your Facial Skin During Winter
In the winter especially, Mother Nature is not always nice to our skin. The chilly air and brisk winds can make our faces feel raw and red while we are walking to work or shoveling snow. Along with the environment, even little temperature fluctuations can cause our skin to scream in protest. Winter skin care is really important, and it’s even possible that we take greater care of our faces in the chilly months. An ideal method to reset our skin for the winter is with a revitalizing facial that will enhance circulation and restore hydration. Your skin will be refreshed and kept glowing as if it were summer with the right facial.
Our goal in increasing facial blood flow is to promote the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. Exfoliants, masks, and peels are all stimuli that take the form of removing old skin cells to reveal new cells behind. Putting away the jargon, relaxation and stress reduction are two additional advantages of getting a facial that go beyond having healthier skin.
For all skin types, but especially for those prone to blemishes, cleansing is essential. A basic facial comprises washing, which will aid in clearing blocked pores and encourage skin healing and regeneration. While we may believe that taking a shower or removing our makeup is washing, a deep cleansing with a facial will yield the best results.
Exfoliation is the key to skin turnover and brightens one’s complexion
In the winter, we also have a tendency to forget the following information:
Skin cells tend to renew more slowly in the winter, so exfoliation will assist slough off the gray winter skin and even help with discolouration and pigmentation. Exfoliation is the key to skin turnover and will brighten one’s complexion. A light peel is a fantastic technique to exfoliate, and even though they typically call for avoiding the sun, that is not an issue when it is chilly and dark outside!
Hydration isn’t just about drinking water
Drinking water alone isn’t enough to stay hydrated.
Water evaporates from the skin in cooler temperatures, leaving it dry and flaky. A hydration mask can provide moisture and a medical grade facial will help in reducing the redness associated with dry, irritated skin.
Vitamins and antioxidants give your winter skin that summer glow –
The summer glow you get on your winter skin comes from vitamins and antioxidants.
Vanity offers custom facial treatments like our Glow Facial that lock in antioxidants and vitamins that help shield your skin from environmental damage. These mixtures can assist in undoing the harm that pollution and sun exposure cause to our bodies. Many antioxidants also aid in reducing inflammation, enhancing cell circulation, and promoting the production of new skin cells.
Quick Tips for Winter Skin
Winter can really wreak havoc on our summer complexions but it doesn’t have to. Following these basic guidelines will ensure that your skin will glow through the winter months
* Use lukewarm water
– hot showers dry out the skin and if not properly moisturized can cause cracks and winter eczema.
* Stay hydrated
– moisturize to prevent water from escaping the body.
* Protect your skin
– wear gloves, hats, and most importantly sunscreen to shield the skin from the cold temperatures.
* Use Skin care products wisely
– avoid masks and astringents and lotions that contain alcohol as they dry out the skin.
* Do not exfoliate too much
– while exfoliating the skin helps in ridding dead cells, you have to be careful during winter because the skin barrier is already compromised by the cold weather.
* Don’t forget the hands!
– the skin on the hands is thinner and has fewer oil glands than other body parts. Moisture escapes from the hands quickly, making them prone to cracks and itchiness.
* Care for your feet
-choose glycerin based creams and petroleum jelly to moisturize. Make sure you exfoliate the skin on your feet occasionally so that it can absorb moisturizer easily.
* Follow a skin care regime
– Being consistent with a basic and simple skin care routine will make your skin happy during the winter months.
