Winter Skin & hair care
Updated: Oct 6, 2020
Hey pretty people! The seasonal changes are upon us. Some of us are feeling it with our allergies, our skin and even our hair. I'm gonna share with you a few tips to keep you looking moisturized and keep your strands shiny and in tip top shape.
Do an assessment to see if your current skin and hair routine will still work well in the winter months. I noticed that my skin started to feel rough and drier, and I was noticing alot more blemishes. To combat these skin changes I had to find a new skin care routine that would work. I looked into it and found a new line- Good Molecules, that seemed like it would work. I did some research and read alot of reviews and can say after 4 weeks of using it, I'm loving my results and plan to take this line into my skin regimen for winter. Visit their site for more info and see what will work for you.
Access your makeup, sometimes that may need a change as well, be sure it includes an SPF because sun and UV exposure is still a thing, even in Winter.
Make sure you condition your hair, preferably with a leave in conditioner if you are natural and add a weekly hot oil treatment to your hair if you start to notice it looking dull , more shedding or harsher texture. Some good oils are peppermint, Jamaican black castor oil and tea tree oil . Tee Tree oil is my fav since I have the occasional dandruff flair up.
Protect your stresses at night- use a satin pillowcase or bonnet. Cotton dries out your hair and can contribute to breakage as it dries out your scalps natural oils. You can purchase an inexpensive satin pillowcase or bonnet on Amazon or even your local beauty supply. Bonnets also protect your styles and curls for an easy no-fuss routine the next morning.
Clean those makeup brushes weekly! I cant stress this enough. It doesn't matter what product changes you make, if you don't clean those brushes and sponges then you are just gonna spread bacteria around your face. Those breakouts won't get any better.
Lastly, keep your hands out of your face! This is not only a good way to avoid Covid-19, it also helps protect you from picking at your skin especially if you are prone to blemishes. Our hands carry germs, our fingernails are also breeding ground for bacteria. If you must unclog your pores of whiteheads or blackheads, use facial strips or the correct blackhead remover tools-- you know the one that Dr. PimplePopper uses! This will help you remove it correctly and lessen your chances of leaving an ugly blemish or scar behind.
Take some time to assess your skin and hair, drink more water and take care of yourself!
