Winter is coming
It’s turned cold all of a sudden and with that your skin starts to change. It becomes alot drier, duller andflakier due to the cold weather and indoor heat. So to beat these winter woes and to keep your skin
glowing by making a few minor adjustments to your
Warm Not Hot. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. As much as we like to have hot showers to warm us upwhen its cold its actually doing our skin more harm then good. The hot water draws the moisture out of our skin as well as our hair making it drier. So if you can resist turn down the heat and have a luke warm shower instead. And if your game before you get out turn on the cold water for 15 seconds and back to warm. Repeat the process for a few minutes to really stimulate the blood flow and reviatalise the skin.
Lip Smacking: Chapped lips can be a uncomfortable in the colder months so use a rich, moisturising lip balm with vitamin E and apply it regularly (even before you go to bed). Don’t use flavoured lip balms as
these only encourage you to lick your lips causing them to dry out and crack even more.
Happy Feet: Your poor feet don’t usually see the light of day once it becomes cold. Hidden away in socks and boots, neglected until the it’s warm enough for them to come out again. But this is the time when they really need some love and attention. At least twice a week before you go to bed soak them in warm water for 10 minutes and apply vaseline or a rich body butter and slip on some socks. Remember to wash them again in the morning.
