Renourish your beauty with Zeina the Fairy...
We've all heard the saying, "appreciate the beauty of a snowflake but be ready to stand out in the cold.
Yes, winter comes with its own charm, but the colder temperatures can rob your skin of its natural moisture, leaving it dry and itchy. In severe cases, it can cause dry skin and eczema, which require a trip to a dermatologist.
To prevent your skin from drying out this winter, here are some top tips from QV Skincare's Zeina the Fairy to help you keep your skin well-hydrated and healthy this season...
#1 Use warm, not hot water
Hot water removes your skin's natural oils faster!
#3 Use a humidifier
Having one helps to add much-needed moisture to the air around you.
#4 Use a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser
Using one will avoid stripping your skin's natural oils.
#5 Keep baths and showers short to keep skin hydrated for longer
Soaking in water for too long can actually remove hydration from your skin.
#6 Relieve itchiness by applying a cold cloth
Or hand-towel, whichever you have.
#8 Leave your shaving product on for 3 minutes
Before shaving, leave your shaving product on the target area for up to 3 minutes to allow your skin to soften.
#9 Change your razor blade after 5 - 7 shaves
A dull blade can bother dry skin and make it worse.
#10 Apply moisturiser immediately after bathing
When drying, be sure to pat softly and avoid scrubbing... This will help to lock-in moisture!
