Tips for Winter Skin Care

in Health

Winter often causes harmful effects on our skin such as roughness or tightness. Suppose you wake up in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror and see that your skin looks chapped. A good way helping you prevent this situation is knowing a little bit about how skin functions in the winter and learning how to take extra care for your skin during this season.

 

Bathing with hot shower


In winter, you should bathe with warm or hot shower because it is both invigorating and highly beneficial to the skin by stimulating the flow of blood through the body. You should practice this habit when the cold weather is coming up.

Having enough sleep


It is often said that “money cannot buy the benefits of a good night’s rest”. You rarely know your oxygen levels will drop if you do not get enough sleep, which means your cells will not be renewed as quickly. This is when degenerative skin aging sets in. Try not to sleep too late.
