Winter is a welcoming season, with its quietness, calmness and coziness of staying indoors in the blankets. However, along with it, the cold weather brings harshness in the winds, snow and blizzards which can be stressful on your skin. The transition from warm weather to the cold weather makes the skin look dull, dry and older, and may also cause flare-ups of skin conditions. This is where the cold weather skin care becomes a mandate to keep the skin soft, supple and glowing.
It is of utmost importance that cold weather skin care and the products used are free of any chemicals, as the chemicals only end up increasing the harshness and roughness of the skin and compromise the skin’s natural moisture. Using harsh peels, masks and alcohol-based toners or astringents can strip vital oil from your skin. Always go for fragrance-free, dye-free options. The products used must necessarily be free of wax, sulfates, petrochemicals, harsh synthetic chemicals and artificial colors and fragrances. This is exactly what Lumavera skincare range is about.
Keeping the cold weather in mind, cold weather skin care must include a lot of natural sunscreen and natural moisturizers. Moisturizers must be used after the bath and again before going to bed at night. The cold weather skin care is not limited to the skin of the face, but also includes the entire body, including hands, feet, elbows and knees. Hydration forms a crucial part of the cold weather skin care regime. You should drink at least 8-10 liters of water every day to keep the skin hydrated and to keep the dry patches away. Avoid toxins and exfoliate the skin regularly to ward off the dead cells.
As the cold weather already causes a lot of harshness to the skin, the skin care products must be as natural as possible. There are various fruits, vegetables and plants in the nature that are a boon in the cold weather. A lot of hydrating masks provide the needed moisture using home products like honey, avocado, olive oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, bananas and aloe vera. The vegetables like carrot, spinach, kale and brussel sprouts have natural phytonutrients that nourish and protect the skin in cold weather and they also have the ability to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Citrus fruits like orange, lemon and pomegranate help in providing suppleness and elasticity to the skin naturally and help the skin glow. The Moroccan Argan Tree oil works wonders on the skin’s natural repair process and helps build collagen and elastin. All these natural plants, fruits and vegetables form the basis of the skincare range of Lumavera.
So this winter you should treat your skin to more nutrition and less chemicals, using the natural products that are free of harsh skin-damaging chemicals and look beautiful and glowing!
