Your skin often shows the first signs of stress, so why feed it with negativity and neglect? Begin thinking of, and treating, your skin like a beautiful garden. If you’re proud of your garden you nurture it to help it flourish. You wouldn’t neglect your garden from nutrients, water and treatment, so why would you forget to nourish and treat your skin?
The Impending Arrival of Winter and Dry Skin
With the winter months upon us, it’s vital that you keep your skin moisturised and hydrated. Winter is a time where nutrients are lacking in your skin due to harsh weather changes, and a lack of climate control due to air-conditioning and recycled air. Unfortunately, with the arrival of winter comes the impending arrival of dry, dull and unhappy skin. Fortunately, there are ways to help tackle this.
Food for Thought
If you notice your skin pigmentation starts to become dull, that’s a vital sign that your skin is not getting the essential nutrients it needs for it to look healthy. If you aren’t already eating essential vitamins and nutrients, make some changes to your daily diet. Begin to incorporate fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C such as berries, citrus fruits, sunflower seeds, broccoli, leafy greens and vegetables that are dark orange and red in colour. These won’t only help your skin but are also beneficial for your whole body.
Hydration is Key
Like any garden, the key to it flourishing is to ensure it’s getting plenty to drink. If your skin begins looking dull and dry, up your water intake. The recommended water daily intake for adults ranges from about 8 to 10 cups of water daily. Keep in mind that when you begin feeling thirsty, you’re already dehydrated.
Care on the Inside and on the Outside
Treating your skin on the outside, as well as on the inside is a wholly beneficial idea that can only improve your skin’s overall complexion. Enjoying a relaxing facial spa treatment is full of restorative benefits, and can tighten, tone, brighten, smooth, replenish and refine your skin and features, helping it to reflect that hard work you’ve been doing to get it looking good from the inside out. Facials often use essential oils, herbal infusions and healing vitamins to feed your skin the extra nutrients it needs.
Like a beautiful garden, treating your skin with the extra love and care it deserves in its months of need is vital to your overall health and wellbeing. Practicing healthy eating, hydration, and even enjoying facial treatments can help reverse the damaging effects that winter has on your skin.
