The weather outside might be unpleasant, but your skin doesn’t have to look dull. Yes, cold temperatures and winter weather can significantly contribute to your skin feeling drier and duller than during other seasons of the year. However, you don’t have to wait until spring to regain that radiant look.
You can try simple hacks such as staying hydrated, using a cleansing oil, using a charcoal mask and taking shorter showers this winter. Here are prime tips on how to winter-proof your skin care routine.
- Stay Hydrated
The skin has lipids and proteins that create a barrier against damage from external factors. Moreover, these elements lock in moisture. Unlike in other seasons, winter has extreme temperatures, and most people tend to take frequent hot showers that strip the skin of this barrier. That’s why most people tend to have flaky and dull skin during winter. Since the natural barrier is removed, you become more susceptible to skin disorders and infection. The secret to preventing dry skin this winter is keeping your skin moisturized. You can try products such as Elon Daily Facial Moisturizer that is designed to restore suppleness.
- Cleansing Oil
You should try a cleansing oil this winter. A product such as Elon Daily Facial Cleanser can help with dehydrated winter skin. The product is enriched with botanical extracts that assure you of a healthy complexion. The cleanser will dissolve oil, thus unclogging pores and keep your skin fresh. The process of applying a cleansing oil is simple. You start by massaging a few drops of the oil into your skin and then rinse with warm water to wipe away the oil. This final step will turn the cleansing process into an ahh moment.
- Add Charcoal Mask into Your Skin Care Routine
During winter, harsh environmental conditions such as debris can easily turn your complexion to look dull and tired. You can try a charcoal mask that is designed to draw out any buildup of impurities such as dirt. After using the face mask, the dull look on your skin will be replaced by a radiant-looking complexion. The process of applying a charcoal mask is simple. You begin by cleaning your face and applying an even layer on the dried skin. You should leave the mask for up to 15 minutes. After this period, you can remove it with water. To get the best results this winter, you can use the mask three to four times a week.
- Taking Shorter Showers
Nothing beats a steaming-hot bath during a cold day. This winter, you might be tempted to take frequent hot showers. Well, this will strip your skin of the protective oils that naturally protect it, which will lead to moisture loss. Moreover, using harsh soap can aggravate the situation leading to tight, dry, and uncomfortable skin. It is recommendable to try short showers in lukewarm water.
You don’t have to wait until the end of the winter to rock your gleaming skin. You can try the tips above or purchase Elon Facial Care Package that will leave everyone wanting to know the secret to your skincare routine.
