Dryness – an integral part of the winter. The facial skin in winter is usually dry, cracked, and thirsty for moisture. So, winter skincare is necessary to keep skin healthy. We at Lavender love to treat the root of the problem rather than the symptom, with the understanding that treating the cause will reduce the feeling of dryness and keep the skin elastic and refreshed.
Why Does Skin Get Dry In Winter?
Winters have low humidity levels, which cause skin dryness. When the humidity level drops and the air is cold, the water in your skin begins to evaporate. Lower the humidity levels, quicker the evaporation. Apart from that, windy weather can speed up the process and make your skin dry and chapped.
Lavender’s beauticians explain how you will succeed in the dry season and enjoy soft, supple skin:
The temperatures are low, the air is dry and the heat dissipates and the air conditioners work overtime. The skin of your face reacts to changes and you get dry skin in winter, slightly cracked, and sometimes red. We have compiled a list of tips for dealing with dry skin and maintaining facial skin even during this period.
1. Exposure To Heat Sources
Most of the heating devices today do not regulate the humidity in the air and create a situation that we spend many hours under hot and dry air. Try using less dry sources of heat and in any case place a bowl of water in the room to increase humidity.
2. Drinking Heavily
In the winter we tend to drink less and staying in heated places causes more fluid loss. Make sure to drink between 8-12 glasses of water a day throughout the year and especially in the winter. Drinking heavily moisturizes the skin cells and keeps them elastic. We recommend that you open the morning with warm water with lemon – they will treat the body after a night without drinking and will help cleanse toxins.
Most shelf products contain Harsh detergents like SLS and alike, which dehydrate the skin. Our recommendation is to clean the skin with natural products based on oil soap and allow thorough cleaning of the skin without leaving it dry.
4. Water Temperature
When washing, try to keep the temperature warm. Using too hot water lowers the natural fat layer, allows moisture to escape, and contributes to dryness.
It is recommended to do on a weekly basis. Peeling helps to shed dead cells and stimulates new cell renewal. Our Medicinal herb peeling with our Natural olive oil facial soap will do an excellent job.
Give your facial skin proper and meaningful nourishment both day and night. It is very good to choose cream based on natural oils, nutritious butter, and essential oils that enhance the activity of the cream. It is important to distinguish between preparations for the day and night and to use the sleep time to introduce more massive moisture. Our antiaging night cream and antiaging day creams will give you an excellent moisturizing effect all day and night.
It is highly recommended to use a serum before applying moisturizer to the face. The serum enriches and nourishes the skin of your face and nourishes it with vitamins, antioxidants, and vegetable oils rich in carotenoids that are good for the skin, magnesium, and amino acids needed to restore and whiten the skin. Use our Natural face serum before our creams (if your skin is not dry they will do the job alone).
8. Around The Eyes
The skin around the eyes is thinner, more delicate, and tends to dry quickly. For the eye area, use appropriate preparations. Make sure to apply eye cream day and night. Wonderful antiaging eye cream you will love.
The use of SPF is also important in winter. It is true that the sun is less noticeable but radiation is active and affects the skin even in the cold season. Be sure to apply sunscreen, preferably with natural ingredients, since non-natural protection factors increase skin dryness. Antiaging natural protection cream with the red algae.
Proper nourishment of the body will also affect the skin of the face. In the cold period, keep the foods warm and nourishing. Prefer casserole dishes, soups, hot tea over empty carbohydrates, carbonated and sweetened drinks.
