This, the second post of the #2014BloggerChallenge, is all about winter skincare and taking extra special care of your skin during the winter is very important.
First off, it’s really important to start from within when it comes to skincare, so try drinking at least 8 cups of water daily – something that I’m guilty of not doing – and try not to overdo it with the processed foods.
As I live in a tropical area, winter doesn’t really hit hard for me but there’s still a bit of coldness. What I do really is, at night I put on a very thin, light layer of Vaseline on my face, and I wouldn’t have to worry about my face going dry during the night.
During the day I use a moisturising face cream, and reapply when I feel the effects of it fading. I don’t use any one product, I just get any really. For my lips, at night I put on a layer of Vaseline, but that doesn’t really last long on my lips. During the day I apply a moisturising lip balm and reapply as needed, or if I’m wearing lipstick I try to use a moisturising one.
And, for my overall skincare, I just simply use a lotion with more moisturising qualities than I’d use any other time of the year. Basically, the key to winter skincare is just to try and keep your skin hydrated and moisturised.
And remember, work from the inside out.
