The season of warm sweaters, suave coats, and hot chocolate is upon us. Winter collections and beauty looks are extremely fun to experiment with, in that regard. But the experimentation and harshness of low temperatures can dry the skin out, too. While Christmas and New Years’ might be days to spend with loved ones, cold weather is not a well-wisher to healthy hair and skin. But fear not! We’ve got some tightly knit beauty hacks to keep yourself glowing this winter!
1. Modify Your Diet
The change in temperature can have a huge effect on your organs – skin included! One of the most important things to remember this winter is to increase your water intake! A hydrated body translates into hydrated skin, which glows on its own and is less prone to acne. This is also a good time to introduce antioxidant rich foods, to avoid falling sick and to boost your immunity – not to mention, they give your skin a natural elasticity and radiance. Fruits and food products high in Vitamin C like oranges, kiwis, gooseberries, and lemons are abundant in the winter months. It acts as a powerful antioxidant that boosts the immune system brighten the skin, and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It plays a crucial role in collagen synthesis – helping to maintain the plumpness and bounce in our skin.
2. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
If the season is dry, then moisturizer is your go-to. It’s best to go for a light-weight hydrating formula, which includes organic skin oils. Make sure to use it not only before you apply your make-up, but to also incorporate it into your day & night-time skincare routine. Having a hydrating night cream and under-eye serum is also a good way to protect the thin layer of skin from losing moisture. You might feel your face tends to get dry, itchy and sensitive during winters – wonder gold oil is your wonder savior! For body, cold pressed oils like Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil and Avocado Oil are the ultimate nourishers. Don’t forget about providing moisture to your pout, apply a lip oil like Pout It for a healthy and nourished pout.
3. Oil Is Your Best Friend
Coconut oil, and cold pressed essential oils like Argan oil, grapeseed oil, and avocado oil – decide to opt for a cold pressed oil, oils are a great way to protect your skin and hair. A delicate massage can go a long way to increase blood circulation and soften severely dry skin. Similarly, Neem oil can help all skin types, especially sensitive skin and acne prone skin. It contains zero grams of trans fatty acids and is naturally cholesterol-free.
4. Retain your natural oils
As good it feels to take a hot shower in winters, but one should abstain from it as it washes off natural oils from your skin as easily as hot water washes off grease from the dishes. Amp up your body oils with Squalane and Grapeseed oil – the closest alternative to your body’s natural oil – Sebum
5. All About Lips
Aah, lips – the base for your perfect red pout or winter-chic plum lipstick. Yet, one of the most easily forgotten parts of a skincare routine. Just like the rest of your skin, lips get dry and chapped during winter. Once a week, show them some TLC (tender loving care) with a gentle exfoliating scrub, preferably one with an organic oil base (like coconut or olive). Usage of a lip oil infused with 24K gold flakes like Indulgeo Pout It can give your tender lips the nourishment they need.
6. Treat Those Tresses
Your luscious locks deserve as much attention this winter as your skin, especially if they’re colored. This is a great time to get some keratin treatment or oil massages. Using the Luxuriant hair Vitalizer can help in keeping your hair frizz free and significantly improves volume, texture and overall health of the hair. A unique blend of pure organic essential oils can treat pattern baldness and more serious hair issues. Winters can be harsh on you, but with the above tips, you can enjoy the cold breezes without any worries as your skin will glow with health!
7. Don’t forget sunscreen
In winters people often tend to ignore the need of sunscreen as the sun is a rare sight. However the need of sunscreen is still constant to battle skin damage. Go for a natural sunscreen like Wonder Gold Oil that provides both nourishment to your skin and protection from UVA/UVB rays.
