Winter is just a few months away. The weather will start to change and so should your skin care regimen. It’s the best time to start preparing your skin for the winter months ahead and following are some helpful tips to keep your skin soft and glowing like never before.

Exfoliate Your Skin

Sudden changes in temperature during winter leaves your skin dry.  By keeping the skin hydrated, you’ll boosta healthy turnover of the cells and the muscle tone. When you exfoliate correctly, you remove the layer of dead skin cells and prepare your skin to absorb moisture. If you have oily skin, you should gently buff your face a few times a week, while sensitive skin needs less exfoliation.

Sunscreen Is A Must

Even in winter, skipping sunscreen is not a good ideaas the sun’s harmful rays are just as strong. Your skin during winter can be more sensitive to the sun than your summer skin. Using a lotion with SPF 30 or higher every morning especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors is a must.

Moisturizer

Your summer moisturizer may not be suitable for winter, and what’s good for your face may not work for your hands. A moisturizer that’s oil-based will form a protective layer on the skin to help absorb more moisture.If you want a lighter moisturizer but with a stronger formula to fight the dryness of winter, go for a serum followed by a light-weight cream.

Proper Shower

When it’s cold outside, nothing feels better than a hot shower! But, frequent hot showers not only wash away the natural oils, but it can also lead to dry and itchy skin.

You always want to consider the rulesto keep you safe, specially when dealing with the food you eat, products you use on your body. The use of safe ingredients on your body is one of the biggest advantages of using an organic body wash. When you use a body wash with chemicals on it, most of it will be absorbed into your body. So basically, chemical based body washes are doing more harm than good. Four most common chemicals are:

  • Fragrance: Most of the time, synthetic and cancer causing toxins like phthalates are hiding under that one sneaky term.
  • Parabens
  • Sulfates
  • Triclosan

Truly, the perfect natural body wash is hard to find. Think about it, using these chemical body washes everyday is adding up over lifetime havoc on your skin. The best organic body wash will have over twenty ingredients. But we don’t even need them all to do the job of a few. During winter, a body wash with all the essential oils and vitamin A and E is the most important ingredient needed for proper hydration, nourishment, softening, antioxidant, regeneration and protection. Since winter is around the corner, choose an organic moisturizing cream body wash.

Keeping all these in mind, you should be all set to welcome winter with a smile on your face. Afterall looking your best throughout the winter should be your main priority.
