The cold weather is upon us and now is the time that your skin needs a lot of love!
When the air around us gets cold, our skin dries out quicker than ever, leaving us with Itchy, flaky, or wind-burned skin.
Look and feel your best this winter by taking the time to look after your skin!
Why Hydration Is So Important
With different moisture levels in the air this time of year, it’s more important than ever to ensure skin gets properly hydrated. If your skin is not getting enough hydration, you risk seeing dryness and flakiness, rough texture, outbreaks of acne or eczema, poor elasticity and worsened appearance of lines and wrinkles. Keeping your skin hydrated means you will avoid the skin becoming too stiff and dry and will improve the overall appearance and feel of your skin.
Tips for Hydrated Skin this Winter
When the air gets dry and cold, we need to pay attention to both internal and external hydration. The easiest way to do this is by making sure we drink plenty of water and take the time to properly moisturise our skin.
Here’s some other tips for good winter hydration for your skin:
- Invest in a good moisturiser that suits your skin type and use it day and night.
- Consider switching to an oil-based moisturiser for the cold months.
- Try layering different moisturisers – a spray followed by a serum can lock in moisture better than a lotion alone.
- When washing, use lukewarm water rather than hot water, which can wash away natural oils.
- Minimise your use of soaps.
- Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day.
A Hydrating Facial Is Not Just a Luxury!
Hydrating facial treatments are perfect for replenishing your skin’s moisture. They also offer deep-cleansing and exfoliation to lift dirt and dead skin cells to freshen the appearance of your skin. Exposing new skin cells helps in winter as they will absorb moisture better and lock it in for fresh, plump, and hydrated skin.
Amaroo Retreat & Spa offers a range of different facials, all designed to make your skin look and feel amazing.
The most popular facial for winter is our Freshness facial. This offers a hydrating treatment with aloe vera and hyaluronic acid. After a delicate skin exfoliation, an ultra-moisturising bio cellulose mask infused with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera is applied, followed by a massage using cryospheres.
