6 Tips for Winter Weather Skincare
As winter sets in and the temperatures dip, exposure to the elements starts to take a toll on your skin – especially if you live in some of the colder, drier areas of the country. Colder weather means less humidity, so the air dries your skin and suddenly your lips are cracking and your cheeks are chapped. Staying inside doesn’t help either because indoor heaters only add to the dryness.
So, how do you take care of your skin and keep that healthy glow all year round? Here are a few ways to help protect your natural exterior from the elements:
Add a humidifier to your household – This little gadget will add back the moisture to your home, helping your skin to stay hydrated. Your plants will thank you too. If you use a humidifier be certain to clean and maintain it regularly as a dirty system can harbor bad bacteria and mold.
Drink more water – To keep your skin hydrated on the outside, you have to stay hydrated on the inside. While drinking a glass of water won’t make an immediate difference to your face, taking in a healthy amount of water is necessary to keep cells fully hydrated throughout your body.
Avoid hot baths – While a hot bath is a fantastic thing at the end of cold day, spending time in all that hot water can break down the lipids on your skin, allowing moisture to escape. Using lukewarm water is a better choice and don’t forget to moisturize after your bath.
Stay away from harsh cosmetic chemicals – Keeping chemicals off your skin is a good idea year-round, however, when you’re fighting the moisture battle, chemicals can do more harm than good. Whether you are using a peel or a toner that contains alcohol, these products can strip away the oils and moisture from your face. Focus on using products that contain natural ingredients like organic milk and aloe vera. For a more natural approach, give Natasha’s Probiotic Face Mask a try. This state of the art system combines the natural nourishing elements of Lactobacillus bulgaricus, LB-51 super strain and moisturizing aloe vera that gives your face a gentle scrub without stripping away essential oils.
Use good moisturizer – During the winter, you have to be vigilant about using a good face cream several times a day. Look for a cream with probiotics and you will be well on your way to getting your skin to believe it’s summertime. Probiotic enhanced face creams can help replenish the moisture your skin needs and exfoliate its surface. Natasha’s Probiotic Face Cream contains aloe vera and DNA fragments of beneficial bacterial cells that can help enhance your skin’s natural renewal process.
Don’t forget the sunscreen – Sunscreen isn’t just for the beach or the summer. Protecting your skin is a year-round process. Many outdoor winter sports occur at higher altitudes with increased levels of UV radiation, so keep your skin protected.
Keeping your skin in tip-top shape during the winter months is not impossible. Pay attention to the details, drink your water, and use good products like Natren’s probiotic face cream to help your skin from the outside and take Natren’s Healthy Trinity oral probiotic capsules to help your skin from the inside. Natren’s probiotic skin care products combine probiotic scientific research with nature’s gifts to help keep your skin fresh and young.
