Winter’s weather conditions affect our bodies in a different way than the summer ones. So, we need intensive daily skincare.
First of all, choose the proper clothing. Comfortable and cotton fabric clothes help us avoid layering that overheats our body.
Right next, take good care of your adequate hydration. Drink plenty of water (recommended dose 8 glasses per day, depending on the needs of your organism), to prevent the dryness of your skin, to enhance its elasticity, and also eliminate toxins from your body. Healthy juices and tea from the purest herbs of Cretan land are also your allies in this!
Take a short and warm shower. Avoid hot water for long periods as it brings the exact opposite effect, intensifying the dryness of your skin. Choose a light-and-soft-composition shower gel, in order to achieve a healthy result. Use a nourishing body butter throughout the winter immediately after the shower. Its thicker structure compared to body lotions, will nourish your skin deeply, reducing the damage caused by cold air.
Do not skip the exfoliation once or twice a week. By removing dead cells from our skin, we encourage the young ones to regenerate it, so that it looks more delicate and more radiant! Use a clean and soft towel to wipe the moisture away and never miss your moisturizing cream. It is the food of your skin, especially during the winter time, when the freezing air leaves it dry and irritated.
Eat properly following a diet rich in minerals and vitamins that will keep your body and skin healthy. Do not avoid the “good” lipids of olive oil and nuts! They are the key ingredient of the epidermis that prevents it from drying out enhancing its shine and elasticity.
