Don’t neglect your skin in winter

Just because winter’s cold front is fast approaching, it doesn’t mean that you should neglect your skin.  What should be one of your greatest assets becomes one of your biggest beauty problems.  Extra care is needed for your skin during this season.

Steam your face once or twice a week to open pores and revitalise dull skin.  Steaming can easily be done at home.  Use a facial steamer or just soak a washcloth with steaming water, wring lightly and bring the cloth close to your face, steam your face for at least two minutes.

What you need is a healthy diet and peaceful mind.  Your meals should have ample amount of juicy fruits and vegetables along with at least 8 glasses of water a day. 

Try a moisturising facial mask of avocado pear to restore skin damage from cold air.  Applying facial mask once or twice a week will beat the cold, open up pores, clear blemishes and moisturise the skin.

It is crucial to moisturise your skin during the winter months.  As soon as you get out of the shower, moisturise your face and body.  Use a moisturiser that doesn’t have too much fragrance.  Lotions like Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter or vitamin E with SPF 15 will assist in protecting and softening premature wrinkles and dry skin.

Always wash your skin with lukewarm water; heat pulls the oils out of your skin, and you will find that having a beautiful skin during the winter months is not as difficult as you think!
