Diverse Beauty Winter 2012 Tips

Ok, it is snowing and it is extremely cold and worrying about how we look is not our top priority correct?

I really hope you stopped before answering this question and gave some thought. I will share few tips regarding winter beauty and I assure you it will not take much of your time, and most of all it would make you look beautiful!

Diverse Beauty Winter 2012 Tips:

  • Drink water-I know I seem to be repeating that a lot, but it is very true. In wintertime, we don’t really feel thirsty and we end up drinking very less amount of water. Drinking plenty of water helps smooth our skin and provide “life” to it.
  • Turn on the humidifier. Our skin becomes really dry quite fast, especially with the harsh winds and chills that are in the air. Our face needs moisturized air that is consistent and soothing.
  • Don’t stop using sunscreen because summer is gone. Sun doesn’t disappear in wintertime, so neither should our sunscreen. I use SPF 15 sunscreen in winter, because it protects the skin from sun rays.
  • Clean your face on daily basis, if you have extremely dry face, I would urge you to use face mask (which I will be providing various options and ways in my upcoming posts) that would help get rid of dead cell and birth to new skin.

These tips and tricks shouldn’t take too much of your time!

Wintertime Dry Skin

In wintertime, which we currently are in, our skin gets extremely dry. I would like to discuss this next, because I know my skin gets dry pretty quickly and it hurts after a while due to itching.

Let’s first explore what is dry skin, reasoning behind dry skin and later discuss tips how to avoid dry skin.

Dry skin is a very common and gets quite worse in winter. In winter the environmental humidity is low or often known as “winter itch”. This can occur at all people of all ages regardless of any/all skin conditions.

You may be familiar to some degree with the appearance of dry skin.

  • Normal fine lines in the skin become more visible
  • Skin feels rough and appears dull and flaky

Dry skin usually occurs mostly on arms and legs, which can overall affect our body.

Dermatologists often call dry skin “xerosis” or “asteatosis“.
