Six tips for glowing skin this winter

Tight dry skin and chapped lips don’t have to be a way of life during the colder months though. This edition we’ve searched high and low to bring you the best tips for flawless winter skin. These handy tips are perfect for the professional woman on the go.
Say Goodbye To The Winter Skin Blues
As part of your daily routine you should use a mild face cleanser to wash your face and avoid taking very hot showers. Harsh cleansers and hot water will dry out the skin. Try looking out for oil-based moisturisers with vitamins C and E. Oil based moisturisers rich in vitamins are better at sealing in moisture and keeping skin hydrated than water based products. However, if you tend to have oily or problem skin, use a lighter lotion.”
The Sun Still Shines In Winter
It is recommended to always use a moisturiser with SPF even in winter. It’s important to protect your skin from the sun. Believe it or not, the sun can be even stronger and harsher on the skin in the winter than it is during the summer.
Three Things Everyone Should Have In The Medicine Cabinet
Skin specialists advise every woman should own, Aloe vera pure gel for any burns, cuts or rashes. Vitamin E capsules. Break open a capsule and apply the vitamin E to any scar or cut to help it heal quickly. And coconut oil. It’s very underrated and it’s perfect for winter because it’s so moisturising. You can massage it onto your hands and scalp.

Your skin changes each season with the weather, so you need to switch your skin care products accordingly. Most people use the same type of lotion all year, but it is advised you should choose a light lotion in the summer and combat dry skin in the winter with a heavier lotion.
