Beauty Tips to look flawless this party season.

Simple solutions to beat Old Man Winter

Looking great in the winter comes naturally—when you have a winter beauty plan. Follow these beauty tips for top-to-bottom, inside out, frigid weather fabulosity.

Sun savvy

Protect skin with natural sun blocks that include titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Wear UVA- and UVB-blocking shades to shield eyes and prevent wrinkles from squinting.

Circulate

Stimulate your circulation and tone your skin through regular dry brushing.

Start fresh

Healthy skin begins with a clean slate. During winter months, use an emollient-rich body wash when you shower or bathe.
Extra-sensitive skin, simply lather coconut oil onto your body before you enter the shower, and gently wash with a cotton cloth. Dry or Dehydrated use Coconut oil or olive oil are excellent facial cleansers. If you have oilier skin, try cleansers containing botanical soapwort (Saponaria officinalis) or Castile soap, which is a simple combination of olive oil and soda.

Moisturise

Cold winds and furnace-dried air parch skin and hair. Use emollients such as healing jojoba, sweet almond, or Moroccan argan oil to replenish moisture. Always moisturise when skin is slightly damp.

Pucker perfect

While cold sores have nothing to do with the temperature, winter weather can boost stress, while being trapped indoors with bacteria and viruses often taxes your immune system, triggering an outbreak. Look for lip care products containing lysine, and boost intake of lysine-containing foods such as eggs, fish, and lima beans. For supple lip skin, roll on a balm containing nourishing castor oil, olive oil, vitamin E, and cocoa butter. Avoid licking lips, which can lead to chapping.

Be sensitive

Conditions such as eczema and psoriasis tend to worsen in winter months. Friction irritates skin, so sleep on silk sheets, and gently pat skin with a towel after washing.
Wear cotton and natural fabrics close to skin, and be lavish with emollient lotions. Soothe skin with extracts of calendula, cucumber, or mallow. Use soap-free cleansing milks containing healing aloe vera and chamomile.

Beauty sleep

Adequate sleep not only helps to prevent the tell-tale dark circles and bags of a night owl, but also is necessary to keep your immune system strong and to allow for much-needed body repair and maintenance. Aim for seven to nine hours nightly.

Fabulous foods

Retaining moisture is the number one winter survival strategy for healthy skin, nails, and hair—and what you eat can play a huge role. Be sure to include adequate dietary omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, from fish oil to create healthy lipid membranes that help to keep water in cells.
Fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E are also key to healthy skin: consider taking a multivitamin for insurance. Of course, having adequate H2O available is crucial, so aim to drink about eight glasses of water daily.

Winter care cautions

  • Avoid any skin care product containing alcohol and sodium lauryl sulphate, which can dehydrate skin.
  • Take warm showers, not hot.
  • Opt for a warm mug of herbal tea.
  • After an excursion in the frigid outdoors, avoid rushing to sit in front of a roaring fire. Temperature extremes stress skin.
  • Apply moisturiser at least 30 minutes to an hour before heading outdoors.
