Winter is a time of temperature fluctuations, frost, strong winds and lack of sun. Under the influence of these factors, the skin of the face peels off without special attention, acne and redness appear. In order to maintain a healthy appearance, it is necessary to draw up an algorithm of procedures that differ from the care at the rest of the time.
Eliminate all alcohol-based lotions and tonics from your daily routine. Use cosmetic milk instead, which then carefully rinse off with boiled warm water. Tap water is very hard and has a detrimental effect on already weakened skin. For deep cleansing, scrubs with a creamy structure are well suited.
Due to the constant changes in temperature and humidity, the skin begins to peel off. Complete care includes the right mix of nutrients and moisturizers. It is recommended to apply a moisturizer before bed and a nourishing cream in the morning. Do not leave too much on your face, otherwise the pores can become clogged, leading to other cosmetic inconveniences.
A dense and greasy cream with a long stay in the cold is perfect for the role of a protector. Also, it will not be superfluous to use homemade masks containing cottage cheese, fat, yolk, vitamins.
During this period, apply all products to the skin with extreme caution, avoid sudden movements. Smoothly and gently spread the cream over the face to avoid the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
An excellent protective agent during cold weather is decorative cosmetics - powder, lipstick, foundation. Such cosmetics should be fat-based, otherwise the water that did not have time to be absorbed will turn into ice crystals on the surface of the face, which become an additional irritating factor.
Cover your face with your hands for a few moments when you go out into the cold, so that the skin has time to adapt to the temperature difference.
Do not wrap a scarf around your face to avoid chafing and irritation. The exhaled air settles into pieces of ice on the tissue, which can cause additional friction.
When returning home, do not strive to sit closer to the warmth. This dries up cold-dehydrated skin. Emergency restoration of dry and irritated facial skin will take you more time, money and energy than systematic and gentle care. Take care of yourself today to look as great as you did before the cold weather!
