Habits to keep in mind to help your skin stay hydrated and rosy in the dry weather

Here are the habits that are "more precious than gold" to keep the skin hydrated and rosy in the cold, dry weather.

Do not use soap in winter

Soaps with high antiseptic properties often affect natural oils. Therefore, if you use soap many times a day, especially in the cold and dry weather, it is very likely that the skin will lose its natural protective layer, becoming dry and cracked. You should use shower gel or soap with high moisturizing properties, natural and benign ingredients.

Add more good fats

Do not forget to add moisture to the skin from the inside. The best way is to consume foods rich in fatty acids, omega-3, lycopene... such as olive oil, salmon, avocado, sesame oil, spinach, beans... Prevents aging, dryness, cracking.

At the same time, please add vitamins such as: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, ... Especially vitamin B - the most important active ingredient that brings vitality to dry, dull skin. Besides, try to drink enough 2L of water every day.

Shower with warm water

We tend to take hot baths during winter to prevent colds. However, if the water is too hot, it will directly destroy the natural protective oil layer on the skin, making the skin dry. Please take a bath with warm water about 37 degrees, within 15 minutes is best. Bathing for too long is not good for the skin.

Apply a mask that regenerates and prevents external pollutants

When autumn arrives the air is cooler and easier to dry because of the loss of moisture. This makes our skin more prone to dryness. When the skin is dry for a long time, it will cause serious inflammation. Protecting your skin from weather changes is an important part of a skincare routine. The solution to prevent dry skin and increase moisture is to apply a face mask.

People with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema may experience discomfort as the seasons change. People with super-sensitive skin like this can experience skin irritation, itching and discomfort for a few days, even weeks when the weather changes.

Don't use exfoliants and retinoids too often

When the weather turns to autumn, the humidity in the air decreases, you should avoid exfoliating and using cosmetics containing retinoids too often because it can lead to dry skin. When the skin loses moisture, the skin becomes wrinkled and dry. At this time, the exfoliation route should be reduced in frequency to protect the skin.

Continue using sunscreen

Although UV radiation is mainly harmful in the summer, the UV rays in sunlight persist throughout the four seasons. Regardless of the season, you should still use sunscreen to help reduce the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays. UV radiation accelerates skin aging, so you should still use SPF 30 sunscreen daily on sunny days.
