Winter finally arrived in South Africa with a bang and the best place to be is cuddled up before the fireplace, woolly socks and a cup of hot cocoa! But with Winter expect an onslaught on your skin that will make you wish you took a trip to the tropics! Brace yourself for dryness, itchiness, sensitivity and seriously dehydrated skin.
Besides soothing your skin with a top-notch skincare routine, here are some other tips to make sure your skin stays radiant with a healthy glow:
Control the temperature
If you are already suffering from skin sensitivity, rosacea, eczema or any other form of inflammation of the skin, change in temperature can aggravate the conditions. Even though cuddling up in front of the fireplace might be nice, your skin might not feel the same. Best is to keep your home temperature to a low or moderate temperature to avoid extra dryness in the air.
The dryer the air, the dryer your skin. If you are living in an area where the weather is cold, crisp and dry, it is advisable to make use of a humidifier to increase moisture levels in the air.
Change your diet
Increase your intake of healthy fatty foods such as avocados, nuts, olive oil and oily fish. Also, a glass of red wine sounds like a great way to warm up, try to limit the intake of alcohol and caffeine. Drink plenty of water.
Yungskin has an arsenal of dryness-fighting products to lock in moisture, keep the skin hydrated and ensure a healthy Winter’s glow.
