Winter skin saviours
Although the colder weather and shorter days means we won't be baring as much skin this season, it's no excuse to stop looking after our skin. In fact, the combination of the drying effect of central heating and biting cold winds can have a serious effect on our skin.
To help keep your complexion looking great during the winter months and to protect it against the harsh elements, just follow our top tips. We promise you'll have glowing skin through to next spring.
1. Stock up on omega-3s
Foods that are high in omega-3s, especially fish, should be on the top of your shopping list this winter if you want to keep your skin looking healthy. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is one of the omega-3s found in oily fish and studies have found that is helps maintain the collagen - proteins responsible for keeping skin firm - levels in your body. EPA has also been linked to protecting against skin cancer by reducing inflammatory compounds which could promote cancerous tumour growth.
2. Stay hydrated
Dry skin is probably the biggest problem we face during the winter months, but it can be easily avoided. Apart from your skincare, drinking plenty of water and fluids is the best way to boost your skin's hydration levels. Our bodies need at least 2 litres of water a day to function, but remember that caffeinated drinks only dehydrate you further, so bare this in mind when you're having your morning coffee. Drinking herbal teas is a great way to improve your daily water intake and keep warm when the temperatures drop.
3. Protect against the elements
Take the time to look at your skincare routine and see if there is anything that needs replacing or improving to suit the winter months. Just because the hot weather has disappeared for a few months does not mean you can stop wearing SPF - our skin can still be damaged by UVA and UVB rays through cloudy weather so keep including it in your daily beauty routine. Similarly, a good hydrating mask or night serum will help protect against the drying effect of winter and keep your skin supple and soft.
