It is absolutely possible to keep your skin glowing even through colder months. You just need to know what to do and how to do it!
Beating winter is possible. Here are some tips that will definitely help you keep your skin glowing.
Apply yin energy
Yin energy is known to be slow and relaxed, and winter is the most yin season of them all. Is a time to slow down, so you should apply the same principles to your skin. According to experts, winter is the perfect time to get your self-care game on point.
Avoid dehydration by strengthening your skin's outermost layer. The healthier this layer, the brighter and glowy it looks. Alesha Marie, a skin therapist, says that “in winter, your sebaceous glands dramatically reduce their oil production in order to prevent your skin from drying out, so it’s important to increase your lipid content through ingredients like wheatgerm, rosehip and avocado oils. Apply a nourishing oil before a shower or bath to prevent your skin from drying out and becoming heat-sensitive.”
Check your neck
Modern life has brought a lot of great things, and our phones are definitely somewhere on top of that list. But, there's another side to every story. In this case, it's called "tech neck." Tech neck is all about the wrinkles slackness and sagging skin that affects us a lot earlier than it used to.
As the skin on your neck is really delicate, applying skincare products is important. So, when it's time for your next routine, remember to include the neck and chest!
Ingredients you should definitely use during winter
Peptides are something you should revisit during winter. Peptides are formed by different amino acids, and when they combine, they form different proteins. Those proteins you want to make sure you apply during winter are collagen, keratin, and elastin.
Remember to include a good anti-aging, too!
