Tips to keep yourself beautiful this winters

Here are some tips to keep yourself beautiful this winters.

Keep your whole body hydrated. Drink about 64 ounces or more of water daily. Limit the amount of caffeine and alcohol you intake; these act as diuretics releasing fluid from the body.

When applying moisturizer after your shower, do it while your skin is still damp. This will help lock in the hydration that is present on your skin. Pay particular attention to the dry areas on your elbows, knees and heels.

Using a humidifier will help reduce the dry conditions in your home. Central heating and generally dry winter conditions can be combated by infusing moisture into the atmosphere by using a humidifier.

Protect your skin from sun damage. Apply sunblock, preferably SPF 25 or higher, as a part of your daily skin care routine all year-long. Remember to apply to all parts of your body that will be exposed during the day: face, arms, neck, etc.

Keep these handy helpers on you at all times, and you’ll never be caught with dry hands or chapped lips again.

A decent lip balm with added SPF protection.

Hand and Nail cream (To prevent chapping and split nails).

A hat (the cold can be awful to your hair too – and don’t forget your ears!).

Eye – area moisturizer.

Stop Licking Your Lips.

Take warm-not hot showers or baths or at least cut the amount of time. While this may not seem best during the cold winters it will actually help prevent the amount of natural acid mantel that is stripped off by the hot water which leads to dry skin. A soak in a warm bath amply infused with sweet almond or jojoba oil would be a soothing and skin-nourishing way to end the day.

Ditch your usual soap and use an emollient-rich beauty bar, such as Dove or Oil of Olay. Cleanse gently and don't soap up dry parts such as legs and arms.

Smooth on body oil or lotion as soon as you get out of the shower, to trap in the shower's moisture. Apply petroleum jelly on problem areas to seal in moisture and heal very dry skin. This includes your face -- petroleum jelly is noncomedogenic (it won't clog your pores) and very soothing.
