With the winter weather here our skin becomes the victim through these months. We should all take the attitude that prevention is better than cure. The harsh weather conditions take the natural oils from our skin so the need for moisturiser is imperative. The cold dry air leads to dehydrated and flaky skin and at times even eczema (where the skin has become inflamed). Obviously with the weather outside being so cold we heat our homes, no matter how you heat your house, it still counteracts and dries your skin at the same time.
You may have found a good moisturiser throughout the spring and summer but with the change of the weather conditions an oil basis moisturiser would be advisable. Putting oils into your skin is highly recommended. Once you have showered you should moisturise and/or use oil into your skin.
Using a face mask once a week. There are many different types available but during the winter months, firming masks should be considered as these will double the muscle contractions around the face and doubling the effect. This will help against anti-ageing. Ex-foliating the skin quickens the skin turnover and this then triggers the natural repair process.
One part of the face that we cannot forget is the lips. You should make sure that you nourish and protect against the harsh weather conditions. A good quality lip balm should be applied regularly. Also applying balm to your lips whilst you are sleeping allows the lips to restore to their natural beauty.
These guidelines should be put into action for all members of the family. Remember your children will not know about skin care so you will have to lead by example and apply mosituriser cream, oils, lip balms etc for them. The worse thing is to look upon your young child and see red inflamed face and/or lips which look sore and itchy and knowing that there was something you could have done to prevent this from happening.
