TattooRemovers.ink is in the skin beautification business, and a part of that is keeping our clients aware of how they can take care of their skin beyond their treatments at our full-service tattoo removal facility.
As winter starts to have its last shining moments, it’s important to stay on top of your beauty regimen and perhaps even make some adjustments that might make the difference between getting caught off guard by the climate shift. We can sometimes take our skin for granted to the point of neglect. We go through weather extremities, and if you live in Southern California, you can go from chilly to hot and high in humidity in no time.
Switch up your moisturizer.
Dry conditions in the winter affect the skin, so it’s important to revitalize and replenish your skin’s moisture. Try to hit the double whammy and make sure you purchase a moisturizer that is also a skin protectant with an SPF level of 15 or higher. Sunflower oil and vitamin E are great for your skin, trapping moisture inside skin cells.
Make sure to literally hydrate. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Make sure you drink a big glass right when you wake up in the morning. You’re at your most dehydrated, most likely, right when you wake up. You’ve just spent 6-8 hours, chances are, not drinking water. Chugging down a nice glass of water will get your body going in the morning, too. That and a cold shower. As cold as you can stand it.
Alternate between cleansing and exfoliating.
It doesn’t have to be an “either-or” scenario. Try not to exfoliate too often because it will dry out your skin. You really only need to be exfoliating twice a week at most. Avoid walnut shells or apricot pits, because they can irritate your skin. Look for facial scrubs that have beta hydroxy acids, and even brown sugar.
Give those toiletry cabinets a nice spring cleaning.
Try to get rid of products that are six months or older. If you have something that’s gathering dust in the back of your bathroom cabinet, then get rid of it. Old products can actually be hosts to bacteria, which will clog your pores and dull the skin.
Start using a facial cleansing brush!
You’ll be glad you did. Find the right brand and model for you. The winter has been harsh on your skin and it’s important to repair your skin, to buff it out.
Get those vitamins.
Vitamin B3 to resolve your redness, Vitamin C to help clear away blemishes. Vitamin E will add moisture to your skin. Have an arsenal that makes your skin look amazing!
