Five Steps to Keep Your Skin Healthy This Winter
The winter has finally arrived which means our skin must combat harsh winter elements like fake heat, cold wind
and abnormally low temperatures.
On top of everything, we are redheads with extremely sensitive skin. When our skin faces these battles, it begins to peel, flake and even cause acne breakouts.
It is up to us to prepare and protect our skin from these elements.
These 5 Easy Steps will help you fight winter pains, increase your knowledge about how to maintain perfect skin and most importantly, keep your skin looking beautiful all year long:
1. Use Cleansers to Maintain Clear Skin
The purpose of cleansing your skin is to keep dead skin from building up in pores and forming traps of acne oil beneath them.
Make sure to find a cleanser that is free of chemicals and works well with your skin type.
It is also important to remember to not over wash your face. Do not use your cleanser more than twice a day.
2. Avoid Fake/Processed Foods
This topic has been debated over the years, but it has also been proven that certain kinds of fatty cooking oils increase the production of inflammatory hormones in the skin.
It is best to eat healthy and clean because what you put in your body will show on the outside.
Try cutting back on red meat, cow’s milk dairy, sugar, and junk food and replace them with poultry, fish, fresh organic produce and nuts.
3. Different Parts of Your Face Have Different Triggers for Breakouts/Problem Areas
We learned this many years ago when we started getting facials; where you break out and/or have problem areas like dry skin, is actually an indication of what is happening inside your body.
Nose Breakouts: If you break out a quarter-inch from the sides of your nose, this may reflect what’s going on in your stomach. If you’re constantly eating the wrong foods, not chewing thoroughly eating too quickly, or eating late at night, you’re skin may be breaking out as if to say: stop feeding my stomach this way!
Forehead Breakouts: Breaking out on your forehead may be a direct reflection of what’s going on in your small intestine.
Eyebrow Breakouts: If you break out near/the middle of your eyebrows, it is because you’re stressing your liver. The liver breaks down fats, so you may be in-taking the wrong food.
Chin Breakouts: It’s usually indicative of hormone imbalances- especially for women.
Use these tips and change the way you treat your body!
This is probably the most important step. Why? Because most of the time, when one has dry, flakey or acne prone skin, the only thing they need to do is moisturize! It gives the skin life and protects it from chilly winter elements.
5. Drink Water!
Water plays a vital role in the proper functioning of the body and is also essential for radiant skin because it eliminates toxins. It has been advised that you drink one-half ounce of water for every pound you weigh. For example, if you weigh 150, then you should drink 75 ounces of water.
