While you are not sweating off your makeup, the winter season brings its own special grooming requirements. Keep these three tips in mind to maintain a healthy glow in the rain, hail, sleet, or snow.
It’s easier to remember to drink a healthy amount of water in the summer, our bodies also become parched in the colder weather. This is important for a fresh face; dry insides are a key player in a dull complexion. Look for symptoms such as dry lips, acne, headaches, and even nosebleeds to let you know that you need to up your water intake.
Guidelines for water intake are as follows:
Drink 6 to 8 glasses daily for a sedentary lifestyle
Drink 8 to 12 glasses daily if you exercise
Drink 7 to 10 glasses daily if you’re breastfeeding.
Drinking a cold glass of water in freezing temperatures may seem like the last thing you want to do, but rejoice; water at room temperature is better anyway. You can also increase water-based foods such as oranges, grapes, and berries to lubricate your insides.
A light spread of your typical face lotion may work in the hot summer, but the air quickly risks this away in colder temperatures. Replenish your skin with a more potent and thicker cream that absorbs in the skin to lock in moisture. Also try placing natural oils such as coconut oil or olive oil on your face at night to allow the body to soak in its complete moisture goodness overnight.
Change Your Make Up
In the summer, it might have been great to just use a tinted moisturizer for complexion evening. The wintertime, however, requires a bit more since the elements may simply whisk this away. Visit your local makeup store to find a foundation that best fits your tone and skin type to enjoy the same even effect you enjoyed in more pleasant weather.
