Winter Beauty Tips

Winter Beauty Tips

With winter approaching your skin, nails and hair will face an onslaught from biting winds, indoor heating and hot showers. Follow these simple tips to combat the effects of winter damage.

Dull Complexion
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water and stocking up on Omega-3 fatty acids found in foods such as nuts and fish; this will keep your skin hydrated and glowing from the inside.

Dry Skin
The combination of cold air outdoors and drying heat indoors may leave your skin feeling dried out. Start your day with a creamy exfoliating was to remove dead skin cells and follow up with a moisturizing emollient such as shea butter or coconut oil to lock in moisture before you leave the house.

Dry, Frizzy Hair
Central heating can leave your hair parched and frizzy, making it prone to fly-aways. One way to prevent this is to take a warm shower instead of a piping hot shower (no matter good it feels). Also make sure to apply conditioner when washing your hair to help seal in moisture and protect from the biting cold outdoor air. Try to avoid shampooing every day as this strips your hair of its natural oils.

Perfect Pout
Cold weather can lead to sore chapped lips; your first thought will be to reach for a lip balm. Take care to avoid lip balms containing menthol or alcohol as these will only dry out your lips further. Instead go for a nourishing vitamin E enriched balm.

Follow these tips to ensure your skin, hair and nails remain healthy throughout winter.
