It’s the most wonderful time of the year. But this season can also play havoc not only with your skin but also to your hair and lips. Now that winter is here.
Compared to summer, winter is less humid which means the colder temperatures become outside, the faster the air becomes dry leading to having flaky skin, frizzy hair and chapped lips. So, why wait until it happens to you when you can change your winter beauty routine now?
We have listed below some tips to help you winterize your beauty routine.
Save Your Skin
Skip hot baths or long showers
Since it’s cold outside, you might be tempted to take a good soak in a steamy bath to relax. However, bathing in hot water can lead to dryness and irritation as it strips the essential oils from your skin. Instead, take a warm bath for a few minutes.
If there’s one product you shouldn’t skip in taking care of your skin, it’s your moisturizer! Apply an oil-based moisturizer when your skin is damp as it helps seal the moisture in.
Repair Your Hair
Get Regular Trims
Keep the frizz down and prevent split ends from coming by getting your hair a regular trim. Don’t forget to dry and cover your hair when you go outside as the cold wind can damage hair strands leading to breakage.
Invest in a Good Conditioner
Don’t skimp on using conditioner before blow drying or curling your hair. Use a leave-in conditioning treatment to detangle strands, reduce flyaways and tame frizz. Remember to only use lukewarm water in washing your hair.
Protect Your Lips
Balm It Up
Coat your lips in a moisturizing balm with shea butters and Vitamin E. Most lip balms are now available with an SPF factor to keep lips protected during the day.
