As our favourite TV show’s line says, winter is coming, and we need to be prepared. As we all need to start wearing layered clothes and eating more caloric food in order to make it through the long and dark winter, our face and skin also need special care in order to adjust. Clearly, we’re not supposed to use the same cosmetic products during every season. Our skin requires different treatment depending on the factors, such as outside temperature, wind strength and speed, as well as humidity. This is why you need to carefully select the products you use, especially in spring and autumn, as these seasons are transitions between radically different weather conditions. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a few tips for preparing your skin for the winter season in the best possible way.
Autumn is the best time for a chemical peel as the weather conditions are not as severe as they are during the winter, so the air is not that harsh and won’t harm your skin. On the other hand, it’s not nearly as warm as in the summer, so this way, you won’t have to worry about sweating. This is the best period for using a moisturizer, as your skin will need to recover from the chemical peel. Plus, when winter comes, it will already heal and be fully ready for that crisp air.
Laser hair removal
The optimal conditions for laser hair removal include as high a contrast between hair and skin as possible. This way, it’s much easier for the laser to detect the hair and remove it. That’s why you should wait until your summer tan fades and use the cool season to your advantage since it is the perfect time for your skin to rest and recover from this treatment. Also, you’ll have enough time to let your hair grow before the procedure as it’s autumn and you don’t have to think about dresses, skirts and short sleeves.
Autumns are also great for tattoo removals. Use this time to erase the mistakes you’ve made at the spur of the moment. As winter is approaching, you’ll have a solid few months to let your skin recover and forget about the ugly past when you had the tattoo that you didn’t like.
Another key aspect of taking care of yourself is making sure you stay hydrated by drinking lots of fluids and choosing proper cosmetic products. When it comes to hydration, altering your eating habits is a smart move. Nutrition is important and by eating a lot of fruit and juicy vegetables, you can keep your skin moisturized and healthy. You should also explore options for night and day skin creams. Unfortunately, this is trial and error procedure, so you need to take some time until you find what works best for you.
All in all, autumn is a great season to take care of your health, beauty and skin in general. Use this time to nurture yourself and prepare yourself completely for the winter. By introducing a few good and healthy habits, you’ll soon be well on your way to being the best possible version of yourself. You’ll start glowing and people will be able to notice how amazing you look and that will not only be the result of appropriate beauty treatments, but your healthy lifestyle as well.
