Save Your Skin
Now that the colder months are upon us you might have noticed that your skin and hair is feeling drier than usual. One of the biggest contributor to dry skin and hair is the drastic temperature change that you’re exposed to when you leave your cosy home. Your central heating also has a drying effect. There’s not much you can do about this, other than freeze, but there are some steps you can take to minimise its effects.
First of all, turn down your shower temperature! A daily surrender of oils occurs in the shower because the heat draws it out. Try to shower at a mid-range temperature, or colder if you can handle it. It’s also a great idea to finish washing your hair with a burst of cold water because this will make your locks luscious and shiny.
It’s really important to remember to moisturise daily and if you suffer from dry skin you will probably remember to do it anyway. But you should also look into changing the type of moisturiser you use. The impact of the weather on your skin means you need something a bit more heavy duty. If you only moisturise once per day you should think of upping it to twice and using a different cream for the night. A night cream is usually oiler because no makeup will be going on top of it. Don’t forget the power of the hair mask either! Coconut oil makes a great softening treatment.
Finally, it’s important to make sure that your diet is incorporating all the good fats that you need because good skin starts from within. Think oily fish, nuts and seeds, avocado etc. We also recommend taking Bionic Bodies Omega Vitality as a top up to a good diet.
So there you have it, ladies. There’s no need to fear Jack Frost. With a few simple steps you can keep your skin and hair looking beautiful.
