3 Winter Skin Care Tips
The weather outside may be unsightly, but your skin doesn't have to be. How to banish dry skin and give your winter skin care regimen a boost.
DRY FACIAL SKIN:
If your facial skin is uncomfortably dry, avoid using harsh peels, clay masks, and alcohol-based toners, all of which can strip vital oil from your skin. Instead, find a cleansing milk or mild foaming cleanser, a toner with no alcohol, and masks that are "deeply hydrating," rather than clay-based, as clay tends to draw moisture out of the face.

Sure, soaking in a burning-hot bath feels great after frolicking out in the cold. But the intense heat of a hot shower or bath actually breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin, which can lead to a loss of moisture. Try a slightly cooler temperature and stay in the water a shorter amount of time.
TIP: A lukewarm bath with oatmeal or baking soda, can help relieve skin that is so dry it has become itchy
GET OUT YOUR HUMIDIFIER:
Central heating systems blast hot dry air throughout our homes and offices. Humidifiers get more moisture in the air, which helps prevent your skin from drying out. Place several small humidifiers throughout your home; they help disperse the moisture more evenly.
Get started ASAP, don't wait till signs of dryness has surfaced...
Oh and get those 2 litres of water too!!
