How to: maintain the top skin of a diva this winter
When frost creeps around your windows and you can see your breath in the air, your skin is going to begin taking the toll. Indeed, winter might be a time when the festive season fills you full of cheer, but it’s also when your skin is most likely to take a beating.
The wind will beat against your face on your walk to work, you’ll seldom see sunlight and the strip-lighting in your office will make you seem paler than an anorexic Nosferatu. No wonder your skin is looking less than fantastic.
And you’re not the only person who’s feeling the effects of the cold when they look in the mirror – we’ve been chilly in the cold snap, too.
That’s why we’ve come up with a few ideal skincare tips to help you emerge out of the other side of winter with pores looking like they’ve enjoyed a relaxing summer.
Erase any wrinkles
Although wrinkles aren’t directly brought on by the cold, it certainly doesn’t help matters. And without a few potions and lotions, those wrinkles will continue to worsen largely unabated.
There are thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of skincare remedies on store shelves and online, but few will have any discerning effect on you. But don’t go reaching for the Botox just yet – we’ve found at least one that works.
Crepe Erase comes with our seal of approval, removing crepey wrinkles with a few applications – and giving you a cracking winter look.
Wrap up warm
We’ve all wandered through city centres on a New Year’s night and witnessed hundreds of women wearing as little as possible, their teeth chattering as they try to blag their way into the coolest nightclubs. You don’t have to be like them – it is possible to stay stylish and warm.
Before you head on a night out, find a thick coat that will keep you cosy and a woollen scarf. And once you’re in your favourite club? Simply take off your outerwear to stop your skin suffering. This might seem like common sense, but it’s a lesson some people never learn.
Look to H2O
No matter what the time of year, water is always the best way to go when it comes to skincare. Are you busy guzzling Diet Coke, downing black coffee and imbibing more fruit juice than any human being ever should? Then it’s no wonder your skin is looking worse for wear.
Drink an average of eight glasses of water a day and you’ll enjoy clearer skin that will be less likely to dry out in the freezing weather.
