When cold winter temperatures begin to drop, a dry and dehydrated complexion is likely to emerge. Dry and frigid outside air, combined with intense inside heat, create a recipe for seriously parched skin. But don’t despair, there are great tips to help combat and turn thirst-quenching complexions into a dewy glow. Here are a few of our favorite ways to help lessen these affects and shine through the winter:
Vitamin Intake: Vitamins A , C and D can not only impact the health of your skin, but also the health of your immune system. Fill your diet with dark leafy greens, such as broccoli and kale. These vitamin rich foods can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, firm and tighten skin and protect against UV radiation.
Sun Protection: The daylight hours may be minimized this time of year, but no matter what the weather forecast may predict, sun protection is a year round necessity. Unprotected skin can leave you with dryness, discoloration and eventually wrinkles. Be sure to add a broad spectrum based sunscreen to your daily skincare routine.
Hydration: Hydrate from the inside out and moisturize from the outside in. Keeping yourself appropriately hydrated in the winter months is just as important as it is in the warmer weather. Proper hydration can aid in keeping moisture levels regulated, but you must also moisturize to keep scaly skin at bay. Mii amo’s Hydrating Facial is the perfect therapy to help boost hydration. This soothing facial will help lessen hyper-pigmentation, while adding intense hydration. Additionally, the nourishing mask and foot massage make this 90-minute treatment a must for the winter season.
Exfoliation: Skin exfoliation is crucial all year round, but is especially essential in the winter months. Dead skin cells sitting on top of your skin may affect your skins natural luminosity. Improve your texture, tone and glow by adding this to your weekly skin routine.
These are just a few on our go-to list, what’s on yours?
