Your beauty care in winter times

With the winter ahead us, a lot of cold, wind, rain and spending time indoors is coming. It is therefore important to keep the skin balanced, so it will shine throughout the winter season.

The cold and dryness that comes along with winter, means that your skin can get out of balance. The difference between the indoor and outdoor climate is big, the metabolism of the skin changes and the skin can become somewhat dryer. How do you ensure that your skin keeps shining and glowing throughout the winter? Read below the six winter beauty tips from Beauty Pearl.

 

  1. A nice long hot shower, or a nice bath sounds fantastic of course. Certainly during the cold winter months. But beware, do not do this too often or for too long. No matter how strange it may sound, water and especially warm water dries the skin out. An extra addition: if you have naturally dry skin, be careful to add shower gel or bath foam. The soap elements in these products can further damage and dry out the skin.
  2. Hydration is key! Since the cold outside causes dryness of the skin, it is important to continue to apply moisturizing creams and to keep the skin nourished. Test for yourself how often your skin needs to be hydrated. Of course, some skin types need more hydration than other skin types.[1]
  3. During very cold days, you may want to consider to only clean your skin with an unscented product that preferably also contains an natural oil. This will make sure that the cleansing of the skin is being done very mild, so the skin retains its natural glow.
  4. Is there snow or are you about to go ice skating? Make sure you use a day cream with a minimum SPF of 20. Crazy? Not at all. Ice reflects up to 20 percent of the sunlight and snow up to 80 percent.[2]So, make sure that your skin is also protected against the harmful effects of the sun during winter time.
  5. In the winter, the difference between the outside and inside climate is very big. The difference in temperature in particular means that your skin dries out more than necessary. One option to tackle skin dehydration this winter is to wet the air indoors. For example, by a humidifier or hanging damp trays on  the heater. This will ensure that the climate inside the house is less dry and milder for the skin. A shiny, healthy skin, even during winter time.
  6. Last but not least, it's time for using the exfoliant. An exfoliant, such as glycolic acid from salicylic acid, actively works on removing dead skin cells. Exfoliant salicylic acid is more mild than glycolic acid, but the latter choice is better able to retain moisture during the removal of dead skin cells. This not only deeply cleanses the skin, but the moisturizing and barrier-restoring ingredients in care products can also do their job better.
