Our body requires constant care. In winter, this becomes especially noticeable, because it is exposed to the aggressive effects of cold. Therefore, at this time of the year, it is worth changing your usual rules of personal care.
For healthy skin
All perfumed cosmetics should be removed as they can cause irritation. Replace your regular soap with a moisturizer or gel, as regular soap can crack and flake your skin. To moisturize your skin in winter, you should use oil-based moisturizers, but no later than 30 minutes before going outside, otherwise you risk getting frostbite.
For beautiful and strong hair
Try to wash your hair less often, as the protective barrier is already too weak in winter. Replace dry scalp sulfate shampoos with naturally organic shampoos. Use hair masks twice a week to prevent dandruff and itching.
Moisturizing is required both outside and inside the body. Drink plenty of water. Keep in mind that caffeinated drinks and alcoholic drinks remove moisture from the body and lead to dry skin. Humidify the air in your home.
In addition to vegetables and fruits as a source of vitamins, eat fish, walnuts, herbs, eggs, cabbage, seafood, red meat. These products are rich in ingredients that are good for the condition of the skin.
Take a warm shower, not a hot shower, as too hot water will dry out your skin. Also, do not take baths in winter for more than 10 minutes, as longer procedures will make your skin more sensitive. Add milk to a full bath and the skin will stop flaking.
For strong nails
Use hand creams with active ingredients that strengthen the nail plate. To prevent brittle and dry nails, polishing and varnishing should be avoided as much as possible. This is due to the fact that such procedures thin your nail plate, and also poorly pass vitamins from hand creams to it. To strengthen your nails, brush them with lemon.
For soft feet
Apply a thick layer of nourishing cream to your feet at night, and put on socks made from natural materials on top. This will significantly soften the skin of the feet and prevent irritation.
