With the cold weather rolling in, and the increased stress levels of the holidays, your winter skin is taking a toll. Using LifeCell All-In-One Anti-Aging Treatment will definitely make your skin glow and give you a more youthful appearance. What else can you do to make sure your winter skin is looking its healthiest? Here are some simple tips to help practice flawless winter skin care:
Dead skin cells accumulate on your epidermis (the top layer of your skin) and they cause your complexion look dull. Gently exfoliate once every other day to keep your skin looking radiant and fresh. You should exfoliate often, whether it’s winter skin care or not. Many products are available in your local pharmacy, and there are plenty of ‘Do It Yourself’ scrubs available throughout the internet.
Be Careful While Shaving
A lot of people rush through when they are shaving in a hurry, and this can really irritate the skin. Take your time when you are shaving and soak with warm (not hot) water in the shower. Hot water dehydrates your skin, which leads to wrinkles looking more prominent. Make sure your skin isn’t dry while you’re shaving because dry skin in winter can further irritate the skin. Rinse gently when you’re done and dry with a bath towel.
Keep a Healthy, Balanced Life
The way your body is doing on the inside will show on the outside, especially on your skin. Eat balanced meals consisting of whole grains, fruits and vegetables (they’re loaded with antioxidants), and stay away from foods that are chemically processed. Drink an adequate amount of water (8-9 glasses daily), and make sure you get enough rest every night.
Change the Air Quality Around You
You know that second hand smoke is bad for you and can lead to lung cancer. But did you know that being around the smoke (and not even inhaling it) can have detrimental effects on your skin? When you’re around smoke, free radicals that harm your skin and fasten the aging process release, so try to stay away from smokers while they’re lighting up. It’s also a good idea to have fresh air circulation in your house. Change our your AC filter regularly, and if you have pets, make sure you get the anti-allergy kind.
Keep Your Daily Skin Regimen Simple
People make the common mistake of making their skincare regimen too complicated, and this may cause some products to cancel each other out. Or, some of us use too much of the products. Keep your daily skincare regimen simple with two products. First, use a quality cleanser to thoroughly clean your skin, like our LifeCell pH Balanced Cleanser. Cleansing your skin is important because it gets rid of built up dirt and bacteria. Next, use an anti-aging/moisturizer, like our LifeCell Anti-Aging Cream twice a day. Sticking to this simple regimen will unquestionably have your winter skin looking its best!
