Though we all have glowing skin throughout the warm summer months, it can be difficult to maintain that glow through the harsh winter season. However, with the right products your skin doesn't have to suffer during the cold months.
Tips for Glowing Skin
The skin cleanser you use during the summer isn't necessarily the same one you should be using during the winter. The drier and flakier your skin is, the more important it is to switch to a skin cleanser with the most powerful moisturizer you can get. The exception to this rule is if your skin is particularly oily. If it is, you can stick with the skin care products you use during the summer. However, it is best to use a lightweight cleanser during your morning beauty routine. Argon oil can also be used to keep your summer glow until spring begins.
Another thing that you can do to keep your skin glow all winter long is to use a humidifer at home. As long as you keep it on overnight while you are sleeping, you can help fight the loss of water in your skin that causes your summer glow to fade.
Keeping your summer glow is about more than just what you apply on your skin. You can also help maintain that glow all winter by regularly drinking two liters of water everyday and filling your diet with water based foods. When planning meals during the winter, choose foods that are high in zinc, Omega 3, copper, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Blueberries and green tea should bot be staples in your winter diet, as they will give you healthier skin. You can also keep your skin moist by eating tomatoes, carrots and grapefruits.
How to Get Glowing Skin
Remaining physically active during the winter can also help you maintain your glow. By exercising, you will keep your blood moving through your body, which keeps your skin healthy and glowing all winter long. It will also help drain your lymph nodes, which also helps you maintain the glow.
One way to keep the skin on your face looking fresh is to get regular massages. You can give yourself a facial massage at home by starting at the center of your face and pressing your fingertips deep into your skin. Repeat the process for eight repetitions, three times a week and that summer glow will never leave your face.
Though these are the best ways to maintain healthy skin all year long, you can also give the appearance of healthy, glowing skin by keeping your winter wardrobe full of white clothing. The contrast between the clothing and the skin will make you appear to be as tanned and healthy as you would be during the summer. If all else fails, this should be a last resort.
By keeping in mind the above tips, you will be able to make it through the winter with glowing skin. The most important thing is to ensure that your skin is strong enough to endure harsh weather.
