With the onset of cold weather and the beginning of the work of heating devices, we begin a desperate struggle for the health of our skin. Dry air created by heating systems adversely affects our skin, depriving it of moisture.
Due to the lack of proper moistening, microscopic cracks appear on the surface of the skin. These unprotected wounds can become a breeding ground for all kinds of infections. Excessively dry skin can provoke various skin diseases on the body and face. Start to look after the skin right now, and within a few months there will be no trace of problems with the skin. Follow simple advice, and you will fully meet winter cold.
Reducing the time of taking a shower
In the cold season many of us try to prolong the time of taking a shower or a bath. It is not right! Doctors of dermatologists recommend not to abuse long and frequent washing. Instead, they recommend:
1. Reduce the time spent in the shower; 2. Wash the body with warm, not hot water; 3. Refuse aggressive detergents, replacing them with more gentle; 4. Do not wipe, but soak the body with a dry and clean towel; 5. Apply moisturizer to damp skin.
Nourishing the skin
With changing weather conditions, it is necessary to revise the approach to moisturizing the skin. In winter, it needs maximum nutrition. Regularly use creams and lotions. It is best to moisturize your skin immediately after washing.
Wear the right clothes
Clothing is something that our skin comes into contact with throughout the day. Choose clothes from soft "breathable" fabrics. Avoid overly tight clothes, as they can provoke skin irritation.
Moisturize the air
Too dry air in the room is harmful to the skin. If the humidity level in the room is below 40%, then doctors recommend moistening the air. To achieve the desired humidity level, you can use an air humidifier, or you can simply put a large container of water near the radiator.
Take care of your health
Various infectious and viral diseases worsen the skin condition. Watch your health, eat well and drink more water. Morning exercise and proper rest will help to increase immunity, and strengthen health.
Keep Yourself in the Hands
Constant emotional stress and stress are the enemies of beautiful skin. Scientists have proven that during the period of stress, the skin's ability to retain water drops sharply. Look for ways to deal with stress. Yoga and meditation classes will help you to get distracted from problems and restore balance.
Watching the weight
Avoid oily, sweet and spicy food. Excessive use of these products may adversely affect your skin. Eat right! Nutritionists advise eating raw vegetables and fruits, as well as drinking at least two liters of water a day.
Get rid of bad habits
Smoking and excessive consumption of alcohol harm the health and, accordingly, worsen the condition of the skin. If you want the skin to stay young and beautiful longer, then get rid of bad habits.
As you can see, the path to beauty and health of the skin is not so complicated. Take care of your skin, and then the result will not keep you waiting!
