7 Things You Should Avoid this Cold Season
Cold season is already in the corner and the cold breeze can be a problem for your skin especially when you do not know how to take care of it during the cold season. So we gathered up all the DONTs to help you overcome the cold season while maintaining a healthy, youthful and brilliant skin this cold season.
- DON’T OVERWASH
The cold season is very demanding especially when it comes to the skin. In regular seasons, washing once a day is not enough to remove impurities such as oil, dirt, dust and bacteria from your skin. But during the cold season, washing more than once or twice a day can be harmful as it can strip the essential oils or even dehydrate your skin.
- DON’T STAY TOO LONG ON HOT WATER
A basic yet very important reminder is not to linger for too long on hot water or frequently bathe in hot water. This is because hot water can be harmful to your skin by stripping your essential oils. A good practice is to keep the temperature below 110 degrees.
- DON’T USE SKIN SCRUBBERS:
Skin scrubbing is recommended once a week but the use of skin scrubbers is incredibly harmful since the skin is delicate during the cold. Skin scrubbers can easily cause flare-ups and stripping of layers of skin, even those healthy and fresh ones.
- DON’T USE ALLERGENS
There are certain products that contain chemicals that are way too harsh and irritating to our skin. When used, the chemicals trigger flare-ups that can cause huge problems to the delicate and sensitive skin brought by the cold season.
- DON’T USE MAKEUPS WITH ALCOHOLIC CONTENT:
These types of makeup are not recommended during the cold season because they are capable of drying the skin. Oftentimes, the use of these makeups lead to irritation and peeling.
- DON’T CUTBACK EXERCISE
The cold season is without a doubt a time for laxing as the temperature induces cozyness. But, a common mistake when it comes to skin health is cutting back an active lifestyle. Needless to say, exercising is incredibly beneficial to our skin because blood circulates better with nutrients needed by our skin cells to make the skin youthful and healthy. Cutting back means there is less chance of increasing proper blood flow and lowering the effectiveness of skin rejuvenation and production of collagen and elastin.
- DON’T TAN:
The cold season is best enjoyed with a fresh and natural skin. Getting on tan beds or artificial sun lamps can greatly harm your skin since the skin is already sensitive in the first place brought by the cold season.
