After the harsh conditions of winter, the chances are that your skin might not be in its healthiest of conditions. The bitter cold, icy winds, and even central heating can lead to your skin drying out and not looking, or feeling, its best. So what can you do to get your skin rejuvenated and back on track?
- Drink More Water
Is there anything that drinking more water can’t do? With your skin being 64% water, it makes sense that not consuming enough water can be problematic. Drinking plenty of water could mean that your skin becomes plumper, reducing the sign of wrinkles, as well as reducing acne due to the lowering the concentration of oil. This, alongside all the other health benefits water promotes, is reason enough to get your H2O on.
- Oxygen Facials
Oxygen facials are becoming big news. An affordable way to get youthful skin, oxygen facials rely on replenishing your skin with all the nutrients that it may have lost during the Winter months. Along with it being a non-medical procedure, meaning that you can go back to your normal activities after its completion, it lacks in side effects due to being a gentle treatment. However, to get optimal results, it is worth finding a reputable company to carry it out. At the Belgravia Clinic, we pride ourselves on being able to perform the treatment and making sure we deliver it with an incredible outcome. The plus sides to getting an oxygen facial are immeasurable: youthful skin that’s hydrated and rejuvenated. What’s not to love?
- Moisturise Moisturise Moisturise
It’s hard to emphasise the importance of moisturising enough. When you’re always stuck between two extreme temperatures, that of the cold outside and the blast of warmth from your radiator, your skin isn’t happy. Both heat and the bitter cold dry out your skin and the back and forth between the two makes it even worse. Moisturising can help to lessen the damage, especially when you moisturise when your skin is still moist, such as after a shower.
- Eat Well
Although drinking water will help your skin, it’s not the only change you can make to your diet. Eating fruit and vegetables, which are full of antioxidants, and even eating fish full of omega-3 will help to hydrate and give your skin a new lease of life. Furthermore, avoiding fatty and oily foods will help protect your skin against breakouts. Easy changes that will make you look and feel better both inside and out.
- Sleep More
Another obvious answer but sleep is often underestimated when it comes to skin health. Sleeping enough will not only get rid of any dark circles underneath your eyes or puffy eyelids, but it could even make you look younger. Studies have shown that those not getting enough sleep look older, with more wrinkles and uneven pigmentation. So next time there’s a choice between another episode of Dexter and getting an early night, it might be worth heading upstairs!
