Why Change a Skin Care Routine in Winter?

Your skin thrives in moderate temperatures where it is neither too cold nor too hot. Each of these extremes is bad for your skin and a change in your skin care routine is important so that you can keep your skin in the best possible condition.

Winters, apart from being cold are often dry. The cold weather and drying winds, accelerate the rate at which your skin loses moisture. This makes your skin dry and flaky.

Dry skin problems are made worse by indoor heating as this tends to dry out the air indoors and contributes to drying up your skin.

The result of winter weather and indoor heating is dry and damaged skin that is prone to infections. To prevent damage to your skin, follow our top five tips for changes to your winter skin care routine!

Why Change Your Skin Care Routine In Winter? Your skin thrives in moderate temperatures where it is neither too cold nor too hot. Each of these extremes is bad for your skin and a change in your skin care routine is important so that you can keep your skin in the best possible condition.  Winters, apart from being cold are often dry. The cold weather and drying winds, accelerate the rate at which your skin loses moisture. This makes your skin dry and flaky.  Dry skin problems are made worse by indoor heating as this tends to dry out the air indoors and contributes to drying up your skin.  The result of winter weather and indoor heating is dry and damaged skin that is prone to infections. To prevent damage to your skin, follow our top five tips for changes to your winter skin care routine!

1. Skip Hot Showers

With the temperatures being cold, showering with hot water is the norm during winter. This, however, is not ideal since the hot and steamy showers dry out your skin and this results in skin damage. Hot showers increase the rate of moisture loss from your skin, leaving it dehydrated. Your skin, therefore, loses its natural texture and glow.

To avoid this happening,

  • Avoid hot and steamy showers as much as possible.
  • Take shorter baths in warm water and pat yourself dry when you are done.
  • Don’t rub yourself dry after a shower since your skin is the most vulnerable at this time and you could damage it with aggressive rubbing.
  • Apply a moisturizing lotion immediately you are done with a greater emphasis on your elbows, knees, and heels since they may get a lot drier during winter.

2. Exfoliate Regularly

Skin damage is high during winter. The result of this is, a lot of dead cells on the surface of the skin. The dead cells combine to give your complexion a tired and dull look. These dead cells on the surface also prevent skin care products from penetrating into the skin and this reduces their effectiveness.

To deal with this problem, you need to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis. Exfoliating removes the dry and coarse cells on the surface, revealing the youthful and glowing skin cells underneath. These new cells underneath are much more receptive to skin care products and this aids in boosting your appearance.

3. Take Care of Your Eyes

take care of your eyes in winter

The skin in the region surrounding your eyes is different to the skin on other areas of your face since it lacks the oil and sweat glands that are found elsewhere. This makes it vulnerable to the adverse environmental conditions outside such as the cold and dry conditions of winter.

The skin in this region loses moisture easily and can result in dark circles and fine lines that give you a tired look. You, therefore, need to boost your eye care routine during winter to prevent this from happening.

  • Use richer eye creams that will nourish the skin and minimize moisture loss.
  • When you are outdoors, wear sun glasses to keep the cold and dry air at bay.

4. Take Care of Your Lips

Your lips are exposed to the cold and dry air and this leaves them sore, chapped and damaged. Your winter skin care routine should, therefore, also include proper care for your lips.

Use a lip balm or a moisturizing cream to keep your lips soft and moist. These products also keep the adverse weather conditions at bay and this keeps your lips attractive for the entire day. If you do not have a lip balm product, use coconut or olive oil instead.

5. Use Hydrating Skin Care Products

The cold environment outside results in a lot of moisture loss from the skin and this makes using hydrating skin care products very important. Skin care products of this type will ensure that your skin is always moisturized and protected, greatly boosting your appearance. Just make sure you are using the right products for your skin type such as primers for dry skin for the best results.

Conclusion

Winter can really damage your skin – but with our top five tips for winter skin care, your skin can stay glowing and healthy all year round!

With most supermarket fridges stacked up with cartons of milk, some might find camel milk labeled cartons and may wonder whether these could be stapled into their routine diet or not. As major portion of our milk diet is sourced from cows, many people are quite skeptical about the health and the healing benefits of camel milk.
Medically utilized by nomadic people for centuries, camel milk is considered closest to human mother’s milk with 10 times more iron and 4 times more vitamin C than usual cow’s milk.

This article focuses on various marvelous benefits of camel milk:

Fixing Allergies

People suffering from severe food allergies, react well and amazingly recover from all their allergic ailments. Continue reading

Acne Treatment With Home Remedies!

Acne is considered to be a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit part of the skin’s immune system and comprising the hair follicle, sebaceous gland and a hair. These units are found on all parts of the body except on palms, top of the feet, soles and lower lip. Pilosebaceous units are found largely on the face, upper neck and chest. The sebum which is produced by the sebaceous glands keeps the skin and the hair moisturized.

Hidden causes of Acne

Stress

Stress can be a major cause of pimples, acne and skin problems

Researchers have proven over years that stress contributes as a major factor for acne breakouts. According to researchers, the steroid hormones like glucocorticoids and adrenal androgens are released due to stress. This can activate the oil glands causing skin pores to clog and finally resulting in acne breakouts. Based on the research, it was also found that college students were affected with more acne during exams.

Carbohydrates
For a different research study, young men were assigned with two 12-week diets of which one group was given carbohydrate-rich diet while the other was given protein-rich diet. Men having protein-rich diet were observed to have lowered the number of pimples twice as much as the ones having carbohydrate-rich diet. This study proved that an increase in insulin could cause inflammation and skin breakouts. So, eating less sugar and eating more whole grains can help in keeping the skin clean and healthy.

Hydrating Face Serum, Our Review

If you have wanted to try a hydrating serum for your skin, In this article, we are going to take a look at two products, Quench Hydrating Face Serum (the dry skin version) and Oil Free Quench (which is designed for oily skin) Both products are from Kate Somerville and I am providing a review of both products available so you can check out whichever is most suitable for your skin type.

The Philosophy Behind Kate Somerville Products

If you want to keep your skin feeling this hydrated, check out our hydrating serum reviews!

First of all, Kate Sommerville’s business philosophy is refreshingly simple, she works to help people look and feel great by developing products that resolve skin problems. She used to suffer from Eczema herself. This is a form of dermatitis which comes from the Greek word for ‘to boil’ (read more about Eczema here) , so understands perfectly how demoralizing and confidence-sapping it can be to face the world with blemished skin or with skin that feels uncomfortably dry and sore. So, for Kate, helping people comes first and the business success has followed – I applaud her!

Why Both Dry and Oily Skins Need Quench Hydrating Serum

Whether your skin is dry or oily, it needs hydration. What people with oily skin often do not realise, is that by trying to rid their skin of excess oil to remove that oily shine, they may be making matters worse if they do not replace the lost moisture. Our skin makes sebum, a natural oil, to moisturise it. When we remove the oil and leave our skin dry, the oil producing glands (sebaceous glands) can go into a sort of ‘over-drive’ in an effort to compensate causing a vicious cycle that escalates if we are not careful.

Tips on How to Find the Best Skincare Without Parabens

Lean how to find natural skincare products without chemicals such as parabens that could have long term health effects.

More and more people care about the way they look and want to keep their skin beautiful for as long as possible.

The term ‘growing old gracefully’ no longer means quite what it used to and many of us will now use as many products as we can so that we don’t grow old at all.

With the increase in the number of skincare products we use has come a desire to know what those products contain and awareness that some of the ingredients need to be avoided at all costs.

This is one of the many reasons why so many men and women have decided to use only skincare without parabens.

Your Guide To Choosing Paraben-Free Skincare Products

The first thing to understand is that any skincare that is water based will need a preservative to stop bacterial growth from forming. Parabens are the most common product used for this purpose and have been deemed safe to use in small quantities by the governing bodies. However, it has now been discovered that parabens may actually stay in the body much longer than first thought when absorbed through skincare products and this carries potential risks. So the first thing that you need to do when looking for skincare without parabens is to look for products that are not water based.

If you have a favorite skincare product that you want to change but are unsure if you will be able to find skincare products without parabens that are similar, then visit the website of the manufacturer of your existing product. Many manufacturers have listened to their customers and noticed an increase in the demand for skincare without parabens and are making a natural version of existing products. It may be that they have not yet been taken on by the main supermarkets but if they are making a paraben free version then you will be able to either purchase it directly or find a local outlet that is stocking it.
