We are halfway through the cold months, which are some of the hardest months for the skin. We almost all relate to the problems, the low temperatures outside, and the dry heat from the radiator, make the skin dry out and generally look dull. But do not despair, it does not take much for you to get both a beautiful winter skin and a healthier porcelain skin tone. To achieve the best result, it is important that you treat your skin both inside and out. Below you will find Beauty Bears best tips.
Wellness for the 'exterior'
Keep the water in the bath lukewarm
In winter, a steaming hot bath may seem like the best cure for the winter cold, but unfortunately the skin does not completely agree. In fact, a hot bath is the quickest way to dry and tight skin as the natural oils that protected the skin are rinsed away. Therefore, keep the water in your bath lukewarm or ice cold.
Remember to exfoliate your skin
You need to start by removing all the tired and dead skin that lies as a thin layer on top of the skin. Be careful not to be too violent and scrub too hard, it should not hurt. After a round of exfoliation, moisturize your fresh skin, either using a good moisturizing cream or an oil. You can advantageously make the exfoliation a regular part of your weekly routine for a fresh look.
Wellness for the 'inside'
Eat lots of healthy fats
If you want to avoid dry skin, it is important that you think about what you eat. First of all, it is necessary that you eat a healthy varied diet with lots of good unsaturated fatty acids. The two essential fatty acids that you need to focus on eating are omega-3 and omega-6. Omega-3 acid is found in fatty fish and algae, while omega-6 acid is found in nuts, avocados and vegetable oils.
Remember to drink plenty of water
It is just as important to drink water in winter as it is in summer. In fact, it is recommended to drink as much as 6-8 glasses of water a day, which many people forget in the winter. When it is hot, you are automatically reminded that you are thirsty, but drinking cold water in the winter can be less than inviting. If you have difficulty drinking enough water, a good tip is to add fruit juices or herbs to the water, to give it a little flavor.
Give your skin a vitamin boost
In winter, your skin needs extra vitamins and minerals. You can therefore take advantage of Beauty Bear SKIN Vitamins. The skin vitamins from Beauty Bear consist of a combination of Vitamin A, Ceramide Oil, Zinc and 9 other nutrients, which gives you a healthy and beautiful skin. Remember that vitamins and minerals support each other, and it is therefore not natural to only take supplements of a single vitamin or mineral. Beauty Bear SKIN Vitamins has for this very reason composed as many as 12 vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in their skin vitamins.
