Winter Skin Anti Aging Care Tips
Our skin suffers from the badly circulated room ventilation and central heating system in winter. And together with this, people take much more proteins, fats, bread and eat more in general, move less.
All these pollute the organism from inside causing skin problems. On the other hand, the cold stimulates and rejuvenates the cells. That’s why the winter coming affects our skin in a good way. But there should be taken some preventive measures to avoid the baneful influence of other factors.
SPA at home
Find a couple of hours a week to do with your beauty in real earnest. Let’s start with the easiest procedure.
Winter face clearness. Take the cosmetic clay and knead it till you get a sour cream consistency. Then apply the clay on to the face and leave it there for 30-40 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and then immediately with cold one. The deepest cleaning provides the black clay, that is wholesome for the body care and fights with cellulite.
Winter face peeling. Mix up 1 tbsp oat meal with 1 tea spoon brown rice meal and 2-3 drops of lavender oil. Add a bit of warm water and 1 tea spoon honey. Massage delicately the face and neck skin using this mixture. Then rinse it off with warm water.
Face bath. This is a wonderful procedure for the normalization of the acid-base balance and skin detoxification. However, you’d better omit it, if you have a very sensitive skin or acne rosacea. Put the herbs and oils that fit exactly your skin type into the boiling water (in the pot or anything).
For example, chamomile goes well for the sensitive and dry skin types; peppermint and rosemary – for normal and combination ones as well as acne-affected skin. Lavender is the perfect herbal measure for all skin types.
Bend your head above the pot about 3-4 inches high and cover your head with the towel letting the towel hang over the pot sides either. Stay that way for 5 minutes and then put a moisturizer onto the face.
Winter face massage. Practice it with the help of a moisturizer or special therapeutic oil. Choose the moistening product that doesn’t contain petroleum, mineral oils and propylene glycol. Do the slight massaging moves over the face and neck bottom-up (from neck to forehead and temples).
If you care about the face this way every day, it will never make you feel uncomfortable and put off the aging.
Ice cubes are also one of the great anti aging measures. Don’t forget about the whole body that needs additional care in winter time.
Dry skin – that’s no great tragedy.
Prepare the following face lotion: blend 10 oz warm water and 3 oz cream and boil it. Cool it, pour it into a glass jar. Pour out the sediment. Rub the skin with this lotion mornings and evenings.
Nourishing mask with egg yellow. Beat up the half of 1 yolk (or 3 quail yolks) with 1 tea spoon olive oil and 15 drops of lemon juice. Apply the mixture onto the face. Rinse it off in 15 min with warm water.
Linseed nourishing mask. Mix 1 tbsp flax seed with 5 oz boiling water. Boil it for 5-10 minutes. Cool it and put onto the face skin for 20 min, then rinse off with warm water.
Honey mask. Grind 1 tbsp oatmeal, 1 tea spoon honey and 1 beaten up egg yellow. Apply the gruel onto the face for 20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
Sour-cream mask. Mix up the equal parts of honey and sour cream. Put it onto the skin. Rinse it off in 20 min.
Oily skin – easy to dry a bit.
Grate orange and grapefruit peel. Squash fruit juice and add it into the peel gruel. Add 3 oz brandy, put in to a warm place and let it draw for 7 days. Filter it. Don’t drink it though it’s tasty. Rub the face with the lotion 2 times a day.
Honey mask. Mix 3 oz honey with 1 oz vodka and 1 oz water. Stir it well and apply onto the face for 25 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
Yolk mask. Beat up 1 yolk and 20 drops of lemon juice. Rub the face with olive oil and then apply the mask. Rinse off in 20 minutes.
None of these masks will require more than 20-25 min of your precious time. But if you practice them regularly, you’ll spend about 140 minutes (2.5 hours) per week on the face care. That’ll be 10 hours per month! And 120 hours – a year! Can you imagine how your skin condition will change having this care.
And one more thing, drink more water to prevent the skin from the hydrating!
Let yourself enjoy the winter season playing snowballs and skiing. Christmas and the New Year are coming. You see, there are lots of reasons to take care of your skin.
