Winter is upon us and it is wreaking havoc on our skin. Today we are going to share with you our favorite skin care tips to help you survive this winter season.
1. Moisturize with natural oils.
Our skin gets extra dry in the winter so we need to hydrate it with the good stuff. Using natural oils gives it double the moister and vitamins and healing properties as well. Some of our favorites are Rose hip oil, Coconut oil and vitamin E oil just to name a few.
Drinking water is something we should all be doing more of. In the cold dry bitter winter (depending on where you live) we know it can be hard to drink ice water but our skin NEEDS it. Drinking at least a liter of water a day and add in some tea of your choice and your skin is well on its way to glowing again.
Humidifiers save noses and throats especially when you have a cold, but did you know they are also great for your beauty regimen? They help along in the moisturizing of your skin. It is recommended by beauty experts to start using a humidifier in your room to help you towards glowing skin.
