5 Skin Care Tips of 2022
Tip 1: Layer Up On Moisture
The changing seasons means changes with our skin. As our first line of defense against the harshness of our environments, our skin needs some help in adapting to colder climates and seasons. Cooler temps can drain the skin of hydration, deplete our natural moisture barrier, and contribute to developing fine lines and wrinkles. A great way to combat this is to switch to products that are more suited for the season, like a richer moisturizer.
Tip 2: Exfoliation Is Key
Exfoliation is not a new concept, but it is one you should absolutely adapt into your skincare routine this year to enter 2022 glowing. Removing the top layer of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin will reveal more radiant fresher skin cells below and helps to promote cellular turnover. Whether you're using gentle daily exfoliation or once weekly deep peeling and exfoliating, you will absolutely see results.
Tip 3: Vitamin C Isn't Just Good for Colds
If you are not already using a vitamin C serum, this is a must. Vitamin C is a powerhouse ingredient that will help diminish dull tired looking skin and boost a glow worthy of bragging about. Not to mention, vitamin C also helps with dark spots, hydration and firmness — basically everything you want to make your skin look phenomenal.
Tip 4: De-stress Yourself
We live in a stressful world, so anything you can do to take that edge off...whether its reading your favorite book, getting a massage, working-out, taking a bath, sauna, or doing meditation. Stress produces cortisol in the body which can produce excess fat around your waistline, as well as these other negative skin issues such as:
- Itchy, ugly rashes
- More severe acne
- More deadly skin cancers
- More severe dermatitis
- Cold sores
- Frown lines
Tip 5: Don’t Miss Your Lips:
Using a lip moisturizer would be a perfect choice. During the winter season, our lips get dry, because of which we sometimes create the pattern of licking our lips. This can lead to dermatitis around the lips . To avoid this, even use a basic moisturizer for the lips.
