During the winter we always want a hot drink and a blanket to shelter us from the cold, however, at this time of year it is important not to forget to spend time caring for our skin.
The sudden changes in temperatures that we face this season are not our best allies in skin care, so let's not overlook that the cold can also mistreat our skin.
Just as the sun seems the great enemy of the skin, the low temperatures, wind and humidity to which we usually expose ourselves in winter also have adverse effects on our dermis, such as dehydration, redness, loss of luminosity , tightness and even the appearance of small wounds.
Maintaining habits such as a balanced diet, proper hydration and a daily facial cleansing routine help you take care of it and protect it so that it looks healthy, bright and full of life throughout the winter. At María D'uol our fundamental pillar is skin care, therefore, we want to share some tips that you can include and adapt to your routine during the winter season. Take note!
Don't forget to clean your face
Although we often want to avoid it, this step is essential to achieve and maintain healthy skin. Whether in hot or cold season, facial cleansing is essential so that our skin remains clean and well oxygenated throughout the year.
Therefore, it is important to create a proper routine with products that suit your needs. This will help you eliminate all accumulated impurities, oxygenate and renew your skin.
Hydrate your interior and exterior
As the cold and wind expose the skin to situations that cause dehydration, loss of elasticity and, as a consequence, the appearance of wrinkles, it is important to include a suitable moisturizer for your skin type to use in the morning and at night. that acts as a shield against external aggressions that seriously compromise it.
In the same way, do not forget that internal hydration is necessary for our body to function properly, so it is important to drink water constantly, as well as to eat a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables that provide vitamins, antioxidants and an extra of water thanks to the properties they provide.
Avoid drastic temperature changes
Although in winter we only want to get home to receive the heat from the heating and enjoy a hot shower, sudden changes in temperature are very harmful to our skin.
Therefore, try to maintain a neutral temperature in your home, take lukewarm baths and avoid showering more than once a day, especially if you were exposed to the cold for a long time, as this could increase dehydration of the skin.
Remember to dry your skin very well afterwards. We do not give it enough importance, and by doing so, our skin appreciates it.
Exfoliation is also important
Exfoliating your face once or twice a week, as appropriate for your skin type, helps remove dry and dead cells that accumulate from day to day. This routine allows our skin to remain soft and very luminous by providing oxygenation, stimulating its cells and thereby increasing collagen synthesis.
Remember to choose scrubs that are right for you to avoid irritating your skin.
In addition, after finishing your exfoliation, it never hurts to apply a mask rich in antioxidants and hyaluronic acid that allow you to maintain a more hydrated and radiant skin.
Protect yourself from UVB rays
It is true that UBV rays are more intense during the summer, however, in the winter months it is essential that you continue to use a high protection of at least SPF 30, since UBV rays even during this time of year can continue to penetrate into skin and cause damage.
On the other hand, it is advisable to use a product to care for the eye contour , because the skin in this part is thinner, more sensitive and susceptible to dehydration.
To protect this area from the cold and wind, do not forget to always carry sunglasses with you.
And to take care of the delicate skin of the lips, use a balm to help protect them and prevent their dryness.
Remember that at María D'uol we are here to help you live calmer and happier.
