3 Tips for Banishing Dry Skin this Winter

New // Leila Nemra

As it gets colder during winter, your skin takes quite a hit and can become dry, dehydrated and sensitive.

Hands down, here are the easiest and best ways to ensure your skin is feeling and looking good!

Tip one: moisturise

It’s so important that you moisturise throughout the colder months to avoid dry skin.

Between the cold air outside and the heaters on indoors, our skin is being dried up to a crisp!

Apply moisturiser after you shower when your skin is still damp, so it absorbs more effectively.

As for picking a moisturiser, make sure there’s a little SPF in the moisturiser as, even in winter, the rays can hit your skin just as hard as a summer day.

Tip two: keep hydrated

You already know just how crucial water is for your day-to-day function, and in winter it’s no different!

Your body constantly needs the regularity and nutrients that water provides. It can seem harder to drink water during the colder seasons, but don’t forget to keep fluids high, as this will help your skin stay hydrated (read more here).

If you struggle to drink water, try drinking hot water or herbal teas to stay warm.

Tip three: eat the right foods

What you put in your body is just as important as what you do on the outside. There are foods you can eat that will help you maintain a healthy glow and keep your skin feeling fresh.

Avocado, carrots, almonds and drinks such as green tea (read more here) nourish your body with nutrients and antioxidants.

Avocado is said to be a good source of vitamin A, C and E, as well as magnesium and potassium. You can also make a great face mask with the leftovers!

Finally, don’t forget to keep a chapstick or lip balm on hand so you prevent yourself from getting chapped lips!
