As 2021 has started and most parts of the country, harsh winter weather conditions can very difficult at this time of year. We need winter skin care tips 2021, especially on the face, lips and hands. Frequent exposure to extreme cold temperatures and low humidity outside, then constant exposure to indoor heat accumulates moisture from our skin – leaving it itchy, dull and extremely dry.
7 valuable Winter skin care tips 2021 are given below for taking very best care of your skin from dullness and roughness of this harsh weather.
1) Drink More Water
Stay Hydrated! You’ve heard the old rule: Drink minimum eight glasses of water a day. You may not feel too thirsty while running a bundle and running in the cold, but drinking fluids is one of the keys to maintaining and maintaining the elasticity of your skin. Stick to distilled or pure water and herbal teas.
2) Take Essential Acids
Increase your intake of essential fatty acids (EFA). This plays an important role in the health of your skin, hair and nails by making your body a healthy cell membrane that can effectively hold water inside the cells. The more water is retained in your cells the sooner your skin is hydrated. To get this, eat more nuts, seeds and wild Alaskan or Pacific salmon.
Take quality flaxseed or fish oil supplements to ensure adequate omega 3s and evening primrose or borage GLA (gamma linolenic acid), which you cannot easily get from food.
3) Increase Blood Flow
Improve circulation and blood flow to the skin. Massage, do facial or do 10-15 minutes of aerobic exercise a day. You can give yourself a mini aromatherapy face by adding 2 drops of each rosemary, lavender and geranium essential oil (EO) to a bowl of boiling hot water. Hold your head straight over the bowl and place a towel over it to keep it from steaming.
4) Take Antioxidants
Increase taking of antioxidants through foods and supplements regularly. Eat more tomatoes or tomato sauce for lycopene; Eggs for lutein (which is found in yolk), and blueberries for other valuable phytonutrients. You can also supplement with alpha lipoic acid (ALA), which neutralizes free radicals in the body and promotes healthy cell function, and beta carotene, the regular intake can help protect the skin from sun damage.
Add a drop of peppermint if you need more dense solution. Both peppermint and rosemary stimulate the production of skin oils and increase circulation. Finish off with a gentle hand massage on your face with Organic Moisturizing Body Oil.
Both certified organic jojoba oil bases balance the essential oils of lavender and geranium in the skin – the oil that is closest to the composition of our own natural sebum. To help increase blood circulation you can add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to a tablespoon of our live body oil for live foot and foot massage.
5) Body Oil
Use Body Oil regularly as your primary moisturizer instead of body lotion. Lotions mostly made of water. Winter conditions will evaporate water from your skin before working. Body oils do not contain water. They are the purest form of moisturizer, but to increase absorption. They need to applied on wet skin i.e. immediately after you shower.
6) Organic Body Wash & Soaps
Avoid traditional soaps and body washes whose detergents and synthetic ingredients remove natural oils from your skin. Gentle Purifying Body Wash is a high choice made from highly moisturizing and protective organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils.
To make a gentle creamy cleanser for your face, mix a teaspoon of lotion and massage lightly in a circular motion. Soak in tap water and rinse with a wash cloth. Divine, sooth or revival, are all the best choices for winter baths. This is the best choice for winter skin care tips 2021.
7) Maintain Humidity
Use an indoor humidifier to reduce the drying effect of pressurized-air heat indoors. Add a drop of rosemary and peppermint to the water to keep the sinuses clear and stimulate your circulation.
I recommend applying any of our body oils to your skin and face after showering. Massaging on it will increase blood circulation, and by the time you stop bathing. You will completely absorb into the skin’s epidermis and the oily layer of skin. Which gives it its deep moisture, it needs to stay hydrated and supple.
Vitality is a great combination for winter as it contains rosemary (to increase blood circulation) and geranium (skin balancing and moisturizing) essential oils not to mention eucalyptus to help keep your head and sinuses clear.
