Way To A Beautiful Glowing Skin

beautiful skinWinter is a beautiful season to look forward to after the scorching summer heat but it can take a heavy toll on your skin, if you do not take proper care. Here are some do’s and don’ts, which if properly adhered to not only help you sport a glowing complexion but let you enjoy this wonderful weather too.

Short Lukewarm baths, will do wonders in keeping your skin hydrated and you’ll save a bundle on heavy creams and moisturizers. You can also add a tablespoon of honey in your last rinse for soft and supple skin. Use glycerin based soap for best results.

Exfoliate; a good body scrub can help remove dead skin cells from your body. Add this to your cleansing routine once a week. Not only will you feel fresh but your skin will be free from all that old dry cells.

Use sunscreen, don’t say goodbye to your sunscreen just because summer is over and it’s cloudy now. Use a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 or more.

Drink lots of water, keeping yourself well hydrated is the key to a healthy skin and a more wonderful you. Make sure that you drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.

Moisturize well, immediate application of olive or coconut oil after bath is extremely beneficial as it locks in the moisture.

Include right kind of fats in your diet, especially Omega-3 fatty acids and fish, fruits, flax seed, almonds, walnuts etc

Dress in layers, so that you don’t overheat your body and remain warm at the same time.

Grab those gloves; don’t overlook your hands and feet. Use good quality gloves and socks so that your skin doesn’t itch. If you have a sensitive skin, wear cotton mittens beneath your gloves.

Oil your hair regularly, as scalp too needs special attention to brace the chilling winds.
Cover your hair with a scarf or cap and restrict direct exposure as much as you can.

Don’t:

– Avoid hot showers, however tempting they may be. In spite of being very appealing after a long, hard day, all it will do is dry out your skin and make you even flakier.

– Soak in too much of winter sun, however relaxing it is, all it will do is burn your skin.

– Overuse heaters & blowers, as it takes away the much needed moisturizer from your skin.

– Drink hot cups of dehydrating tea & coffee.

-Lick your lips often as it will chap your lips even more.

Last but not least, don’t ever forget to wear that killing smile on your face….nothing looks more beautiful than a smiling face.
