The winter can be one of the harshest seasons when it comes to maintaining your beauty regimen. The cold and nasty weather can wreak havoc on your face and skin. When it’s cold outside, your skin tends to dry out. This can make scars and other blemishes more apparent. It also makes wrinkles more obvious. The dryness can be itchy, cause acne, and create other issues. Don’t succumb to weathering looks.

Use these 7 winter beauty tips to look your best this season:

1. Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine

This can be tough during the holidays. You might feel like you need all the coffee you can get to keep up with the holiday hustle, and it’s hard to avoid the wine at holiday parties, but stay strong. These ingredients can dehydrate you, so your skin loses moisture and is more likely to dry out.

2. Soften Your Skin

During the winter, it’s important to make sure you’re doing your part to keep your skin as soft and hydrated as possible. Take your skin’s softness into your own hands with this tip. Use emollient-rich body wash or skim milk with lukewarm water to soften your skin.

3. Apply Lotion Regularly

Like we said above, it’s up to you to make sure you stay moisturized during the winter months. One of the best ways you can do this is also the most simple, regularly applying lotion. Opt for a moisturizing lotion with ceramides and use it right after showering for the best results.

4. Try Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo can be a girl’s best friend, and it’s for more than when you may not have time to take a shower. Regular shampoos can rob your hair of valuable natural oils and make it lose its shine. Applying dry shampoo in between your regular shampoos can help your hair to maintain those natural oils and look beautiful all season long.

5. Switch to Cream Blush

If your face is drying out, sometimes the biggest culprit could be in your makeup bag. Powder blush tends to look obvious and crack in the cold. Cream blushes apply more smoothly. Find one that you like to keep your makeup looking great all winter.

6. Visit a Med Spa

The season can be a stressful time, so why not take the time to treat yourself while also looking great? The holidays are all about taking time to pamper yourself. Zannis Plastic Surgery offers a med spa where you can get facials, skin care, specialized makeup, and more.

7. Use a Humidifier at Home

When the heat gets turned  on the air in your house can quickly become dry. While it might keep you warm and cozy, it’s not doing your skin any favors. Keep the air in your home moist by using a humidifier daily so your skin is less prone to cracking.

8. Choose Fabrics Wisely

This can be easier said than done when it’s so cold out, but choose your fabrics with care. Many warm-weather clothing can actually be irritating to the skin. Try to avoid wool or other fabrics that can be harsh on your skin to look your best this season.
