Today is the 1st of December. Whenever I think of December I think of Christmas, snow, cold weather, comfortable sweaters, high socks and cuddling. But what about beauty? Do we think about how the climate change has a huge effect on our skin? If you've continued with your summer beauty routine, it's time to stop. Today I'll be sharing the best 10 winter beauty tips that can keep you from having flaky skin this winter.
1. Moisturize with SPF - Yes, you're probably finding this beauty tip weird because there's no hot sun. You don't have to use a SPF that you would usually take to the beach, though find a good moisturizer that contains SPF. The suns UVA and UVB rays are still strong in winter, even though you can't feel the warmth of the sun.
2. Avoid hot water - shower with warm - I know, I know. It's winter and all you want to do is hop into a hot shower and get all warmed up. But, hot water actually dries out your skin. For the sake of your skin, shower with warm water and then have a nice hot beverage to warm up your body in the cold winter days.
3. Use natural oils - To keep your skin smooth, soft and moisturized use a natural oil. We recommend that you use an organic argan oil. Product recommendation: Mirage Argan Oil.
4. Drink more water - Your skin needs hydration. Even though you might not be feeling as thirsty as you did back in the hot summer days, drinking water helps with skin hydration, beauty, and pretty much everything. Water is a must, no matter what season it is.
5. Wear lip balm - Protect your lips from dry air and strong sun by wearing lip balm that contains SPF. Invest in a long lasting moisturizing lip balm this winter to keep your lips soft.
6. Bring your leafy plants inside - By bringing your gorgeous leafy plants inside, not only does it brighten your living room but the plants also diffuse through the leaves adding moisture to the room. You'll see the difference in your skin right away!
7. Warm mug of tea - On those cozy winter days when being with friends, or just watching your favorite TV show, treat yourself to a warm mug of herbal tea. Caffeinated and alcoholic beverages dehydrate your skin.
8. Hit pause on nail polish - In the dry months, nails can become more brittle and break or peel. Hydrate them with a hefty Shea butter balm. It prevents lotions and balms from hydrating nails. To get nails healthy, keep them bare, and moisturize them every time you slather your hands. Once your breaking and peeling days are behind you, return to polish.
