Winter care

August 8, 2007 RENU

The epidermis, outer layer of skin, constantly peels off and rejuvenates. It is more likely to occur during the winter months as the winds are dry and squeeze out the natural oily texture of the skin.

3elements of skin care are needed for any skin during winter.
1. Deep cleansing milk to remove the dirt or excess oil adhering to the skin.
2. This is followed by astringent applications that cools, tightens and tones the skin
3. Followed by an oil based nutrient rich in vit E to nourish the skin.

Essentials:
1. Fluid Intake helps your skin to retain the essential oils automatically and acts as a natural protection against dryness.
2. Take ample amounts of fruits & vegs.
3. steam facial 1-2times/wk excellent in winter as opens pores & revitalises dead skin.
4. AHA moisturiser- Alpha hydroxy acids are great for reducing flaky skin. Apply 3times/wk to exfoliate dead skin which prevents moisture from being absorbed properly.
5. Always wash skin in tepid water as heat pulls the oil out of skin.
6. wear sunscreen on face, lips.
7. wear alcohol free make up as has drying effect on skin.
