Hello there, pretty belles! So we’ve reached that annoying time of the year where it is mid-monsoon and mid-winter at the same time, and we’d freeze ourselves to death if we don’t wear sweaters or jackets in the morning and by the afternoon, we’re likely to faint by heat stroke. Nevertheless, we are used to it, and we adapt ourselves to it. But then, there are certain things that need to be taken care of, during this brutal weather. Let us see what they are!
Moisturizing is the most important step of one’s skin care regime. Never skip that, no matter what and specially in this season, we must pamper the skin with the moisturizers, and better if it’s oil or cream based, but only for dry skin. And the oily skinned beauties, first off, consider yourself blessed, and yes, you have to moisturize too, but go for a water based moisturizers. You can also use organic ones, the best of all, and if you are worried you wouldn’t get them at your average drugstore, order them online and you can easily get them for a lower price by using the Purplle coupons, discounts and offers!
Yes. Cardigans, jackets, coats, scarves, gloves, socks, boots, tights, get them all ready. Oh, we forgot hats! Protective clothing is very important, owing to the fact that the brutal morning wind and the chilly weather chaps your skin and makes it look like cracked porcelain! Therefore, get your clothes all sorted and use them! And if you are worried about those clothes in your wardrobe that you think you can’t use, here are some winter clothing hacks to ease your turmoil!
Sunscreen and Facial oils
Another blunder we do is, skipping sunscreen. Somehow, we just associate sunscreens with just summer but however, it must be used all the time, to prevent any skin damage. Invest in a good one with minimum SPF of 30, to block the sunrays and as per the hydrating part, along with the moisturizers, facials oils can be used. Specially the ones that have lavender, chamomile and jojoba will give a new life to your skin.
You might want to write this down, but moisturizer before anything. So before you apply foundation or BB cream, use moisturizer first and choose the foundation according to your skin type. If oily, go for matte ones, and if dry, go for cream or oil based ones. And coming to the ey makeup, check the expiry dates, use under eye serums to avoid any dryness under the eyes and use a creamy concealer to hide the dark circles. And lips, take special care of them! Exfoliate them properly and use hydrating lip balm to keep them soft and pretty.
No, external care isn’t just enough. You must be healthy on the inside too. Drink loads of water, as they will flush the toxins out and eat fruits like berries and tomatoes to keep your skin health and supple. Cut out the junk food, that has too much salt and sugar in it, as they’d do nothing but dehydrate and make your skin look dull and lifeless. And yes, make sure you get your beauty sleep too. Eight hours, no less.
Take a little time for yourself from your busy schedule and care for yourself. Wake up a little early, exercise and sweat the toxins out, be fit and healthy, after all, health is wealth!
