Skincare during Winters and how to prevent skin damage
I love winters more than summers because I get to wear all those knee high boots, furry cozy coats and scarves. But winter has its own drawbacks. As winter is setting in, listen to the cues that your skin is subtly giving you. Winds and cold weather are just as damaging to skin as over exposure to the sun. Before turning on the geyser, think of the effect of the relaxing warm shower on your skin; before sipping that hot cup of coffee, think of the effect it may have on your skin; before using a blower to keep you warm, think of how dry it is making your skin.
Girls with dry skin have to be extra careful during winters as it makes skin drier. I have dry skin that turns into super dry during winters. I will share some tips with you that will make winters a smooth ride for you all irrespective of what skin type you may have –
Use a body scrub/ Exfoliator – Try to use any body scrub at least once a week to get rid of all flaky skin and dead cell build up. Regular exfoliation will keep your skin healthy, soft and flake-free.
Fight skin damage this winter – Depending on how dry your skin becomes, you may need a more emollient moisturizer. Any moisturizer should be loaded with ingredients that help keep moisture in your skin. Look at ingredients and try to spot vitamin E, glycerin, ceramides, fatty acids, and hyaluronic acid there. Dry and dull skin is only a manifestation of a deep cell level damage. It is essential to fight the invisible damage at the cell level rather than just surface level visible damage. Focus on the importance of a repair and fortify regimen that penetrates deep down into the skin working at a cell level. For that I will recommend using Cell Renew Body Lotion & Cell Renew Moisturizer for face. Vivel Cell Renew products have 10 times Vitamin E Benefits that repairs & fortifies skin at cellular Level.
Additional Moisture – If your skin becomes dry no matter how intense moisturizing formula you use, try mixing few drops of Jojoba or Vitamin E Oil with the lotion on your palm and then apply it over your body. I have tried this on very dry parts of my body (like feet, elbow) and it works for me everytime. Not to forget that different parts of our body need different type of care as the skin of hands versus body versus face are very different. So I would recommend using complete range of Cell Renew that includes a moisturizer, Body Lotion & Hand Cream.
Don’t forget Sunscreen – During Winters you don’t see sun often, that doesn’t mean you can skin Sunscreen. UVA & UVB rays are still there and will harm your skin. Do not step out without wearing sunscreen (with atleast spf 30)
