Winter Beauty Tips

Posted on: November 2, 2009

It’s definitely sweater weather now, but just because you’re all bundled up doesn’t mean your skin and hair can’t feel the effects of the cold weather.  Cold weather can be extremely drying so here are some winter tips:

It's getting colder....-If you can, try to shampoo every 2 to 3 days – shampooing too often can deplete natural oils and dry hair out.

-Don’t forget conditioner! Winter is a good time to opt for a heavier conditioner than you would normally use. Try leaving conditioner on for a few minutes in the shower before rinsing out.

-Avoid styling products with alcohol- they can be very drying and cause static, which is also a result of dryness.

-Try to minimize the amount you use hot styling tools such as hairdryers and flattening irons –they can be additional culprits behind dry and brittle hair

 -Use milder cleansers in the winter, avoiding harsher detergent ingredients. Examples of more gentle ingredients to look for are sodium laureth sulfate and cocoamidopropyl betaine.

-Make sure to moisturize skin using a rich moisturizer, which is especially beneficial post-shower. In the winter, an oil-based cream is more effective at warding off dry skin and itchiness caused by cold weather than a lighter lotion.

-Don’t forget to apply a moisturizing lip balm, especially one with SPF (you still get sun exposure in the winter!)

-Drink water to stay hydrated (inside and out)
