SIX SECRETS OF SKIN CARE IN WINTER
The low temperature season is a special test for the skin. Skin protective layer, the so-called water-fatty mantle, is damaged by frost, dust, dirt, dry air of heated and air-conditioned rooms. Therefore, winter beauty care has its own important features, and if you know them, you can easily look luxurious, even when the thermometer is below zero.
Why is it important to maintain the integrity of this water-fat protective layer? Because it largely determines the aesthetic appearance of the skin:
If it is damaged, bacteria and contaminants easily penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, causing inflammation and skin diseases.
An interesting fact: on one square centimeter of the skin, there are from 3 to 23 cold receptors, and 3 heat receptors. Therefore, low temperatures have a much more significant effect on skin than high temperatures.
As a result of the influence of frost, the skin condition can significantly deteriorate:
- dryness and wrinkles appear;
- the blood supply to the epithelial cells is impaired;
- sensitivity increases;
- elasticity decreases.
However, even in winter, you can look great, despite the frost, snow and wind. To do this, pay attention to several important nuances.
First, let's determine the type of skin:
- dry and sensitive;
- normal and combined;
- problematic, prone to oiliness, inflammation and acne.
Now let's talk about the secrets of skin care in the winter, taking into account each of its types.
- dry skin – milk or cosmetic cream;
- normal and combined – with fat-containing agents (dry areas) and water-based (places with increased production of sebaceous glands);
- oily skin – toners without alcohol or gel.
2. Moisturizing and nutrition.
An important rule: in the winter, water-containing products must be applied to the skin no later than an hour before leaving the house!
Due to overdrying, an abundant layer of moisturizing or nourishing cream applied in the evening on a previously cleansed face will become useful.
3. The nuances of makeup.
The foundation has good protective properties – do not neglect it in the cold season.
Before applying foundation, irrigate your face with warm, clean water for more hydration.
Fat cream in winter is a lifesaver for any type of skin. Apply it half an hour before going outside, and your skin will thank you with an elastic, fresh look.
Another “shield” for the skin is a cream with SPF, which prevents the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.
5. Lip care.
Hygienic lipsticks or balms are something that you should not forget to put in your pocket or purse during cold weather. Softening and nourishing, they eliminate peeling and saturate your skin with vitamins. This is what you need for a beautiful image! Use them throughout the day as needed.
6. Soft hands.
The skin of the hands is affected by cold air no less than the skin of the face, upset by dryness and redness. To avoid this, apply nutritious creams as often as possible throughout the day and at night.
All these beauty tricks will help you maintain firmness and softness of the skin even in winter. Be always beautiful and loved!
