Here are our top beauty tips for keeping your skin refreshed and revitalised this Winter. From avocado treatments to overnight moisturizing, follow these simple tips and look forward to Winter skin.
Avocado contains amazing moisturizing properties - it’s great for both your face and hair. Apply a generous layer of crushed ripe avocado on your face for about 10-15 minutes before washing off with warm water. Following this, apply a light moisturizer instead of a toner.
Start by cleaning your skin with a facial pad and your typical cleanser. Dampen the pad and moisten your skin. Apply a small amount of facial cleanser to the pad and then wipe your face. Splash cool-warm water on your face to remove all cleanser.
Lightly touch your face before going to bed checking for any wet areas. Wait until your lotion dries completely before settling down to sleep because once you fall asleep, you run the risk of turning on your side and wiping the lotion off. Most moisturizers will dry in 10-15 minutes.
When you take a sip of water from a plastic bottle the water molecules left on your lips surface evaporate and will draw out moisture from within the surrounding skin. Try securing your lips pours with semi-solid jelly or try drinking from a straw. This will help you avoid leftover water molecules.
If you have oily skin then the Winter is your season to shine. You'll get away with wearing a small amount of fresh moisturising gel, however for the rest of us, consider trading your moisturising lotions with a creamier substance. If your skin's a little on the dry side, browse for creams with barrier-repairing elements which focus on water loss prevention. Hydration is also key for optimising skin shine, so try layering your daytime cream over a smother fluid.
We can all agree that foaming cleansers feel great in the summer months, however, in winter months when things are much drier, it's worth switching to a creamier cleanser to cleanse without abandoning your skin's protective barrier.
If you like discovering new ways to look after your skin, why not try crushed ripe banana? It's a fantastic moisturizing option. Start by taking 4 to 5 tablespoons of crushed banana and massage it onto your face. Wash off after roughly 10 minutes and give your face a massage using fresh honey. Apply in a circular motion for that extra relaxing, moisturizing feel. Do this for at least 10 minutes and finish off with a toner.
