Six tips for healthy winter skin

Read Lyudmyla’s six tips to gives your skin a rosy winter glow.

1) Maintain a healthy lifestyle

A healthy diet plus regular exercise is the perfect recipe for good skin. If you take one away, the equation is ruined. Getting regular exercise means your blood circulation is boosted, and a good diet means your body receives all the essential nutrients you need to keep your skin healthy.

2) Watch for chapped lips

Interestingly, your lips are the first place that dehydration presents itself. Use this as a tell tale sign of when you should be more attentive to your skin!

3) Treat yourself

In order to get rid of those old skin cells once and for all, it’s worth booking in for a facial treatment at the beginning of the season. It might be expensive, but your face will thank you for it. Pick up an exfoliation glove too, and make sure you use it regularly.

4) Drink plenty of water

It’s no secret that drinking plenty of water can help give you great skin. If you can, drink around two litres of water everyday. It gives you a radiant, healthier, younger looking complexion by keeping your skin hydrated from the inside.

5) Swap products if you need to

It’s important to pay attention to how your skin reacts to the change in climate over the winter season. It may well be that you have to change your products to suit different seasons, as what works for you in the summer might not work in the winter.

6) Get Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a natural way to help protect your skin from the sun. Either stock up on citrus fruits such as oranges and kiwi, or apply the miracle vitamin directly to your face. This allows for a more concentrated target area, thus resulting in a more noticeable change for your problem areas.
