At this time of year, it feels like winter lasts forever, and we’re all waiting for the trees to bloom again and the sun to re-energize us. You might be surprised to find out your skin feels this way too - pale, chapped, dry, and as tired as you feel after a long day. Luckily, there are ways to brighten and revitalize your tired winter skin both on the surface and below - and you don’t have to wait until spring!
Moisturize dry skin
One of the biggest complaints your skin has during the cold months is dryness - lower temperatures mean less moisture in the air, and this is made even worse by heating inside. So stay vigilant and apply more moisturizer than in the summer, and make sure to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water throughout the day. Dry skin can seem more dull, and moisturizing helps bring back its luster.
The holy trinity: sleep, eat, and move
No matter what time of year it is, these three things are at the top of the list for restoring tired skin. In fact, sleeping has the power to restore skin cells, so losing sleep can lead to those fine lines and wrinkles we’d rather avoid. Similarly, exercise boosts circulation and increases the oxygen flow to you skin, while eating healthy foods full of fruits and vegetables is key to hydration and a healthier complexion.
Brighten your day - and your face!
When you think of winter, one thing that comes to mind is dark, dreary winter days when the sun is hidden behind clouds. Your skin needs brightening on those days just as much as your spirit, and you have plenty of options to help you. The first area to darken on your face is usually under your eyes, where dark circles can form from tiredness or lack of sunshine, take your pick! Whether going the natural route with cucumber slices and tea bags, or trying out a new illuminating concealer, there are lots of ways to lighten things up.
Refresh with a dermaplaning tool like The Hollywood Browzer
One of the best ways to refresh and revive your tired winter skin as a whole is through dermaplaning, a procedure that can make every other aspect of your skincare routine more effective. It rids your face of fine hairs and peach fuzz while exfoliating away dead skin cells, leaving you with a beautiful, healthy glow that can last you through the winter.
Dermaplaning also maximizes the absorption of your skincare products and cosmetics that no longer have to work through a barrier of hair, dead skin cells and built up debris. That means you’ll make the most of your beauty regimen with the greatest bang for your buck on expensive products! Best of all, you can take this holistic technique into your own hands with The Hollywood Browzer, a multifunctional beauty tool that takes you through the entire dermaplaning process at your convenience.
