The weathers getting colder by the minute as you can tell from the random hit of snow that has occurred within Britain yesterday. This made me think about doing a post about tackling winter skin because although we wrap up to ensure that we stay warm, we normally forget to ensure that our skin is healthy and protected at the same time.

I know this sounds like a stupid suggestion but drink plenty of water! We are meant to be drinking lots of water everyday however that is not the case! We forget to drink water normally due to the taste so instead we will drink things like fizzy drinks and coffee instead but we need to drink water to ensure that our body which includes our skin is being hydrated everyday which needs to happen in this cold weather!
2: Moisturise Regulary
This also sounds quite stupid but moisturise regularly as if you leave it quite a while then your skin may become slightly chapped or sore and nobody wants that! Also, purchase a good overnight moisruriser to ensure that your skin is not becoming dry via the coldness of your room at night.
This time of year calls for a heavier moisturiser. Something that will sort your skin out and keep it looking radiant. Something that is thick in consistency and says to help all skin types would be a safe option. I think that a good moisturiser would keep a nice barrier between your skin and the freezing weather. I would also choose a body moisturiser/butter that contains a good variety of oils/butters within it.
Yes, this is another beauty tip! Guess what, this is a post about skin so there should be a good few beauty based tips. This one is about exfoliating as exfoliating helps to get rid of dead skin cells. This means that skin cells have regenerate which helps to protect the skin. I use Ocean Salt from Lush but any exfoliator is good! I also think things like lip and hand scrubs are needed throughout the Winter period!
5: Use Protection!
I obviously don't mean use condoms and such on your skin! What I mean is that you shouldn't forget things like hats, gloves, scarves and other winter essential accessories which will cover you up and keep your skin from drying out quickly! I love massive scarves and beanies!

I hope that you have enjoyed this blog post and I hope that you are coping well with this cold weather. If anyone needs me then I'll be hibernating!
