Skin is the most sensitive part of our body. It must be taken well care of in changing seasons. A wash with hot water can prove to be fiercely drying as it draws out the natural oils and water from it. Therefore as winter draws near make it a point to lower the temperature of the water you wash your face with. It is perhaps a very gentle part so extra care should be taken by being extra gentle with your skin during winter season.
Irrespective of skin type, water is one thing that all complexions need, as cold air sucks away moisture from anything it comes in contact with, including your face. To compensate for the loss of moisture it is necessary to fortify moisture reserves. It is very important to drink plenty of fluids, as many as eight to ten glasses per day. This will help to keep the skin cells from dehydrating. There are many toxins that lurk in our body during our less active winter months, thus it also flushes them out of the body.
Some skins regardless of its kind or humidity in the air, always feel dry and dehydrated. This problem increases with advancing age. As one grows older the skin gradually becomes thinner and less able to retain its natural water levels. Blood vessels diminish, while sweet and oil glands production decreases leaving older skin more prone to dryness. It wrinkles and sags in old age.
Greasy skin is at ease as it takes care of itself by producing a cocktail of chemicals known collectively as natural moisturizing factors, or NMF for short. A visit to a massage shop is must. Take it as a routine as it scales dead cells, and replenishes moisture loss thus fortifying the face and neck with much needed rejuvenating face packs.
Diet, exercise and sufficient rest hold the key to resolving many a skin ailment. Fruits, raw vegetables, water and yoghurt should be included in one’s daily diet. Carrots, cucumbers and cabbage contribute tremendously towards skin care.
