As Nemo showed us we are not free from the winter quite yet. Spring is around the corner! The first official day is a month away on March 20th and if groundhog Punxsutawney Phil is correct, we might be seeing Spring sooner. In the meantime are you experiencing dry itchy skin? Keeping your skin hydrated in the winter is essential not only to keeping your skin dry free and soft, it also helps delay the aging process and prevents wrinkles.
Tip #1: Sun Protection
Did you know that according to the Mayo Clinic the most important thing anyone can do for their skin is protect it from the sun. That means even in the winter. Ever noticed how after shoveling snow or going skiing you get a tan? You need SPF15 or more at all times.
Tip #2: Smoking
Are you working on kicking the habit this year as part of your 2013 new years resolution? Here is just another reason why you should quit smoking. Smoking makes the blood vessels narrow, depleted the skin of nutrients and oxygen which decreases blood flow to the skin. Smoking will damage collagen and elastin which keep your skin beautiful and wrinkle free.
Tip #3: Washing
Make sure to always wash your face every night especially ladies to remove your makeup. Keeping your pores clean and fresh will help keep your skin happy. Use a good moisturizer to continue to keep your skin hydrated throughout the night, especially with the dry winter heat on. Come in for a skin consultation and we can help you find the best moisturizer for you.
Tip #4: Drink Enough Water
We know this is one that all of us hear over and over again, yet many of us don’t drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day. Naturally water keeps us and our skin well hydrated. Happy hydrated skin means a beautiful glow.
Tip #5: Eat Foods that Keep your Skin Hydrated
Your diet will also make a difference. Have nuts, avocados, and fish for wonderful hydrated skin. You can also ensure hydrated beautiful smooth and soft skin with foods that are rich with anti-oxidants like, pomegranates, blueberries, goji berries, and dried small red beans, tomatoes, beans, nuts and green leafy vegetables.
Keeping your skin hydrated is easy. Just follow these tips and you’re sure to have a smooth skin like a baby.
