When it starts to get cold outside, it can be hard to make sure that you look good. Even if you have lived in a cold climate for a long time, it can be a challenge to make your look hot when everything is dry and cold. Here are some beauty tips for the winter season.
Make sure you moisturize. In the winter, the air is cold and very, very dry. That’s why you have to do your best to moisturize. Make sure you use lotions and moisturizers on your hands and your face, the two most likely places to see the most cracking and dryness. Do your best to moisturize every day, and make sure that if one brand doesn’t work so well, that you can change to a brand that works better with your skin.
Drink enough water. That may seem like a strange thing to say, but when you drink enough water, you are going to be able to moisturize your skin from inside, in a way. Staying properly hydrated will help to make sure that your lips don’t get too dry.
Use winter colors. The winter means it’s time to break out your deep, warm colors. Bring out the dark reds and the plums for your lips, and the gold and silver shades for your eyes. Use a golden shimmer across your brow bones and cheek bones, so that you can still glow a little bit even though the sun is nowhere to be found.
Cover your lipstick with lip balm. It’s easy for lips to get dry; they get the worst of it during the winter season. To fight that, make sure you use lip balm on top of your regular lipstick, so that your lips don’t become dry when it’s cold.
Gloss your hair with glossing treatments. Hair can also seem dry during the winter, but not if you take some steps to nourish your hair. Do a hot oil treatment every month, and make sure that you keep your hair styled with products that will make it shine and look glossy. See what works, and use a little product at first until you get a suitable amount of shine. You don’t want to overdo it and end up looking like your hair is greasy at any time of the year!
Be careful when using heat for your hair in the winter. This heat can really damage your hair. Some curling irons and straightening irons dry your hair out, so try not to use them as often as you might during the warmer months.
If you keep these suggestions in mind, you will be able to look glowing, radiant and beautiful no matter how cold it gets. Use the tips here to form the basis of your beauty looks in the winter, so that you can know that you look great even though the weather is uncooperative.
