Winter is here, and the air is getting drier. Everyone who has dry and sensitive skin knows what to expect, dry, red and itchy skin. You do not have to be doomed to be dry ice. There are some simple tips and advice on how to counteract dry skin and avoid flaking your way through autumn and winter.
1. Moisturize the skin while sitting at the computer
A common moisture thief, which you may not think of, is the computer. Some people experience that the skin becomes dry and that the radiation from the screen stresses the skin. As soon as you feel that the skin starts to get tight, spray your face with a good and moisturizing face spray. Then the skin will be like new again.
2. Turn off the heat in the shower
No matter how nice it is to take hot showers when it is cold and rough outside, your skin will be dry. Hot water dries out the skin as heat dissolves fat. Shower a little cooler, and your skin will thank you.
3. Use a good face oil
When it is cold and windy outside, investing in a good face oil that moisturizes and soothes the skin is good. Face oil gives a more profound moisturizing effect than face creams. It also does not contain any water, perfect during the winter months.
4. Avoid moisturizing the skin before going out
Using water-based and moisturizing creams on the face before going out in sub-zero temperatures is not a good idea. The water cools the face and instead dries out the skin rather than giving it moisture. Instead, lubricate yourself properly before going to bed or lubricate yourself well before going out in the cold.
5. Drink water
You probably already know this, but it can be repeated for your own sake and the sake of your skin. Drink water! Whenever you feel thirsty, you should drink water, preferably two litres a day. Your skin will be much stronger.
6. Change cleaning
If you have dry skin, your cleaning product may be the culprit in the drama. Do not wash with a lathering cleansing product if you have dry skin. Instead, use oil-based products or natural oils such as cold-pressed almond oil, oil dissolves grease and dirt. Effective against makeup residue and gentle on the skin.
Omega3 is a polyunsaturated fat that helps the skin stay strong and moisturized. The fat is found in fatty fish such as mackerel, salmon, and avocados. By eating oily fish and avocados regularly, you keep your skin hydrated. If you want to give the skin an extra boost, you can add extra omega3 via supplements.
If you have dry skin and have tried all the creams available, nothing helps? Then you have to ask yourself the question; when was the last time I scrubbed my face? If it was a long time ago you did it, you apply the creams on top of dead skin cells and do not go down into the skin. Bathe your face with water and then take a wet towel and scrub with small circular motions on your face. Rinse your face when you are done. Keep in mind that the skin on your face is sensitive, so take it carefully.
