Daily Guide On How To Keep Your Skin Hydrated During The Winter Months

February 19th, 2013

The following tips can go a long way to keeping your skin hydrated and glowing during the winter months. These is the time when you need to moisturize your skin daily to keep it soft and supple or suffer the consequences of dry itchy skin.

Dry skin ages faster than skin which is dry so keeping your skin hydrated is a priority, it will not only be soft and supple but also youthful.

The following are excerpts from different articles that I found perusing Elle.com.

Daily Maintenance For Glowing Skin

Hitting the Steam Room

There are plenty of ways to get extra hydration into your skin without the application of products. Hitting the steam room for a few minutes at the gym or spa and incorporating those requisite eight glasses of water a day (via pure H20 or fruits and veggies) are just a couple examples of small steps that can make a big impact.

Replace Moisture From The Inside Out

Estrogen keeps skin supple but declines over age, making additional hydration essential for a youthful appearance.

Supplement loss of natural estrogen with plant estrogens, rich in green veggies like broccoli that also contain glow-getting antioxidants like vitamins A and C. Also search for creams or moisturizers with plumpers like glycerin and hyaluronic acid and use them twice a day regularly for best results. Even if your skin is oily, don’t skip this step, as dehydrated skin will only produce more sebum, exacerbating your issues.

Get the Right Fats Into Your Diet

Don’t remove all the fat from your diet if you want supple, smooth skin. Studies show that diets with a good amount of essential fatty acids promote healthy cellular turnover, calm inflammation, and result in a supple, more youthful-looking complexion. Omega-3s are plentiful in salmon, mackerel, tuna, nuts, and seeds, so be sure to keep them on the menu for great skin.

Eat Water Based Foods

Hydrated skin can be achieved not only by drinking water but also by eating foods that are high in water content. Raw fruits and vegetables (and juices containing them) are an impressive way to increase your body’s essential need for water without lifting a bottle or glass.

The Sun: Wrinkle Maker And Moisture Bandit

A good sunscreen is important for sun protection as well as protection against moisture loss. The sun shines all year long, making an SPF lotion a necessity-even when it’s below zero outside. In winter months, look for a more emollient version-there are nourishing moisturizers on the market that contain sunscreen as a bonus-to provide a protective barrier against harmful rays and other weather-inflicted skin conditions.

I hope you like the above references and found them useful for achieving a beautiful and glowing complexion.
