Winter skin is no fun! Before we have even completed 30 days of our “new year, new me” resolutions, that dry, winter skin has crept up on us!
So how do you keep your skin looking hydrated and supple in 2018?
Simplify and go back to basics.
Here are 3 easy tips to maintaining great skin throughout this dry and extra chilly season.
1. Think about your skin from the inside out!
Most of us have some sort of diet and fitness goals in 2018. We are making a conscious effort with our diet. Do this with your skin! Foods rich in omega-3 such as salmon really make a difference on the outside. Choose fruits and veggies rich in antioxidants such blueberries, kiwi and spinach. As always, drink lots of water or swap for a green tea. Stay away from sugar, which is a skinemy, as much as possible. When you eat sugar, your insulin level goes up and this produces inflammation which in turn produces enzymes that break down collagen and elastin resulting in sagging and wrinkles.
2. Stick to a skin regimen!
Whatever you do, be consistent with this because that in itself makes a huge difference with your skin. Skin solutions are easy- cleanse, tone and moisturize day and night. Exfoliate to remove dead skin at least once a week. This Works has a wide range of products to choose from and at a great price point of $28-58, it is very affordable.
3. Fake it ’till you make it!
Use a primer to “fake” great skin. Primers are magic, little cream fairies that fill pores and forge supple, hydrated skin. Be sure to find the right one for you as they all serve a purpose. For example, do not by a mattifying primer if your goal is to look hydrated. Below is one of my favorites.
