Many of us look forward to Christmas– the gifts, the get-togethers, and the discounts and bargains. However, most of us dread the coming of the winter season as it tends to dry out your skin. This requires you to establish a whole new beauty routine that will keep your skin moisturized, nourished, and protected against the harsh effects of the winter cold.
To help you out, we have decided to provide you with some unusual yet beneficial moisturizing tricks that can help your skin survive the harshness of winter.
Use satin or silk pillowcases
We all love our cotton pillowcases. Aside from the fact that it is a lot more convenient to lie on, cotton pillowcases are also a lot more affordable. Despite its affordable price, experts advise against using this type of pillowcase because it tends to dry out the skin and your hair. Splurge on either silk or satin pillowcases, and you can be able to reduce skin and hair dryness as well as wrinkle formation.
Get rid of dead skin cells
You may not know this, but dead skin cells tend to block the absorption of moisturizers into the skin. This is why you must regularly exfoliate your skin through a body brush and a body scrub twice a week. Do this regularly, and your skin will not just feel soft—it will be hydrated as well!
Cut off your vices.
No matter how painful this is to accept—coffee and alcoholic drinks negatively affect your skin. These drinks are both diuretics which prevent your body from retaining the body that it needs. Summon all your willpower to abstain from these drinks during the winter season.
