Winter can put a whooping on your skin and hair. That blistery, and sometimes unpredictable, weather could have you doing the most to make sure that your hair and skin are well cared for during that time. It can be a lot to deal with, especially if you have combination skin and curly hair. But, the stress of creating and maintaining a good routine for the winter won’t last forever. In fact, it’s time to change things up a bit.
With the warm and sunny weather approaching, you will want to take some steps to help your skin and hair adjust to the new weather patterns. That being said, now is the time for you to bring your skin and hair out of that winter hibernation. Making the appropriate adjustments to your routine will help to ensure that you look good and feel good about the state of your hair and skin.
Here are a few tips for transitioning your skin and hair care routine once you’ve said, “Bye Bye” to Old Man Winter:
Give Your Hair A Little Snip
If you’ve been wearing your hair in protective styles throughout the winter, you may have quite a bit of length to it. However, the cold and dry weather may have caused a little bit of splitting to happen to your ends. It will be best for you to give your ends the attention that they need and get them trimmed. The overall result will be healthier looking hair that is ready to take on those warm weather styles!
Give Your Skin A Super Dose Of Hydration
Winter dries out the skin. Unfortunately, when you compound the cold, wintery weather from outside with going back and forth into dry, heat-filled environments, it can wreak all kinds of havoc on your skin. For the more humid weather and to give your skin a bit of a boost, you will want to try to incorporate hydrating products into your skincare routine. These products will give your skin that much needed hydration to get its soft, smooth feeling back. Nobody wants flaky, crepey skin. So get your hydration on!
Keep That Water Flowing
One of the most vital tips for bringing your skin and hair out of hibernation is to get replenished from the inside out. Water! Make water your beverage of choice and you will begin to see your skin respond by being suppler, and potentially even clearer.
Exfoliate For A Fresher Look
Having dry skin is not the move. You definitely can’t look your best like that. So, you will need to make exfoliating a priority. There are many products that will help you to gently exfoliate your skin. Additionally, you can use a soft, body brush to remove any dead or flaky winter skin. Just remember, under the dead skin is a layer of beautifully renewed skin that will have you glowing and looking fantastic!
Resist The Heat
With the humidity about to be in full effect, you are going to want to cut through the frizzies. But, try to resist the urge to apply too much heat to your hair. After the beating that the winter put on your tresses, using too much heat could cause greater damage to your hair. So, try not to overdo it on the heat.
