Skincare Tips for Cleansing & Hydrating
There actually is a ‘right’ way to clean your skin in the winter months, because you can prevent your skin from drying. Here’s the steps to follow:
• Use warm water instead of hot
• Use gentle cleansers rather than harsh ones
• Tap skin to blot dry, never rub (use fresh towels).
• Apply moisturizer immediately following cleansing and drying.
First and foremost, Humidify
As I said before, that heat we blast is super drying, and we are in the heat almost 24/7 in the winter. So, you can imagine what damage that drying heat is doing by the minute. The best thing you can do for your skin is using a humidifier at least at night. This will put moisture back into the air, thereby adding much-needed moisture to your skin. maintaining moisture in the air is one of the top skincare tips for spaces impacted by the use of your heater.
