As the air becomes cold and dry our skin needs a little extra time and care. Making a few changes to our lifestyle and skincare routine can really make a difference. You do not have to spend much money either to improve your skin’s health.
One action is to be more mindful of the food and beverages you take in. Along will drinking more water, cutting back on alcohol and caffeine will help your body be less dehydrated.
For food you can add more olive oil, avocados, leafy greens, and nuts into your diet. These foods include a variety of vitamins that will have skin moisturizing benefits. If you are like me and enjoy seafood, there are many delicious and easy salmon recipes to try!
Another super simple step is putting humidifiers in the house. You can have one in your living room while watching tv, your home office, or in your bedroom to work its magic overnight.
I will admit, I thought humidifiers were only good for air breathing quality and allergies, but it is really good for your skin too! The air around you will pull moisture from your body if there is not another sufficient source.
When your skin is being adequately hydrated it will build a stronger barrier to protect it from the environment.
HIT THE SACK
Sleeping is when your skin restores the most. It is at this time when your skin sets into recovery mode, making it the perfect time of day to boost your skin routine. Make sure you have bedding that’s comfortable for you!
For the body try adding a few drops of vitamin E oil to your lotion before putting in on. Vitamin E oil also serves as a great overnight mask. Vitamin E oil that is not super thick will not clog your pores and will help soften and heal your skin.
After cleaning your face with a gentle exfoliator, I would recommend using a serum and overnight eye cream to optimize your facial before putting on the vitamin e oil. In the morning use a vitamin c serum and switch to a heavier moisturizer.
Vitamin C is great for anti-aging and will help protect your skin during the day. The heavier moisturizer will help keep your skin hydrated longer during the day.
For on the go, keep toner water either in your car or bag. It will give instant hydration whenever you fell you need it most. If you want something a little stronger try Winged Radiance Everywhere Facial Oil.
