While there’s no other season as romantic as winter, there is also no other season which can dry your skin and hair out as much! If your memories of last winter involve frizzy hair matched with dry and cracked skin and lips, you’re reading the right post.
The reason why so many people experience cracked lips during winter is because they are using fashionable flavored glosses instead of balms designed to repair cracked skin. Swap out your strawberry gloss for a lip balm which has been designed to protect against cold weather. If you enjoy a scent, try cocoa butter. It can repair your lips and has a pleasant natural fragrance.
When the cold winds start to bite, it is our faces which are always left exposed. This leads to dry skin. While a light moisturizer was great for the warmer, and even transitionary months, a cold winter demands you use something a little heavier. Be careful not to go too heavy; it could lead to a breakout. If in doubt, speak with a beauty therapist.
Next to feel the effects is your hair. The best way to maximize moisture in your hair is to reduce the frequency of which you wash it. Instead of every day, try every two to three days. When you wash your hair, it can strip moisture from it, which can take time to come back. Of course, if you are washing your hair, be sure to use a thick hair treatment every week or so to help your hair battle the cold.
In addition, it is important to remember that your eyelashes are hair to, and will also feel the effects. Once a week at night, take a cotton tip and lightly coat your eyelashes with olive oil. If they continue to dry out and break, eyelash extensions in Edinburg, TX is a great way to keep your lashes looking fuller during cold weather.
If you don’t like wearing gloves, then you likely remember very cracked skin on your hands last year. To battle these effects, look for a thick moisturizer designed specifically for hand use.
It can be tempting to use the same moisturizer for both your hands and your face; however hand moisturizer tends to be heavier which can lead to skin breakouts on the face.
Don’t let cold weather get the best of your social plans this winter. Keep these tips in mind and stay looking and feeling your best this cold season.
