As the temperature drops, your skin needs all the help it can get.
Your face is exposed to the elements and when it’s cold, it can take a beating. The winter air can be brutal to the health of your skin.
You want to be one of those extraordinary creatures whose gorgeous skin just never quits. Someone whose fresh visage inspires with its youthful glow.
So, we’ve put together these 5 genius tips for glowing skin to help you put a brave, glowing face on winter, weathering it like a champ.
1. Masks Really Work
Masks (products which you apply to your skin and then leave on for extended periods) really work. And if you’re thinking that the masks you’d really like to try are too expensive, we have great news.
The cheaper ones can be just as good.
Look for anything that’s made with Dead Sea mud. This substance cleans your pores and over time contributes to a healthy glow. The Dead Sea is noted for its high salt and mineral content. In fact, there’s so much good stuff in the Dead Sea that people go there to cure skin conditions like eczema.
2. Use the Toner
Many people skip this step in their regular skin care ritual but it’s important that you don’t. Here’s why: after cleansing, toner serves to help your skin retain moisture and that’s not all. Well-hydrated skin is a better medium for other products like serum, moisturizer and treatment creams.
3. Take Your Vitamins
And no, we don’t mean vitamin supplements (although there are special vitamin formulations for the skin that many swear by). We’re talking about two things – the first is applying a serum with a high concentration of Vitamin C.
You’ll find many cosmetics manufacturers highlighting the benefits of Vitamin C as a topical product to treat your skin to before applying moisturizer. With a distinct brightening effect, the Vitamin C serums on the market now will also reduce the appearance of brown spots.
And food is a far more desirable source of nutritional Vitamin C than supplements. Choose sources like citrus fruit, broccoli and green and red bell peppers.
4. Massage Your Face
Massaging your face encourages blood flow to the skin, as well as lymph. Performing a daily facial massage is a great tool to put in your toolbox, promoting healthier, more vibrant skin that’s brighter and fresher and better muscle tone.
The best time to perform your daily facial massage is before you turn in at night, so you’ll be happy to hear that it’s also relaxing.
