Value Your Skin For Better Complexions

By: Jon Caldwell

I know a lot of people who don’t really like the idea of exfoliation, but did you know that exfloliating every week helps your skin in getting rid of possible build up of dead skin cells? Also, it helps in exposing the fresher layer of your skin. You still have to be careful in choosing facial exfoliants though. Use only the gentle ones and avoid products with very harsh chemicals on it. If you undergo exfoliation from time to time, you will observe that the fresh layers of the skin will be absorbing the moisturizers that you put on your skin every day.

It is advised that you take cooler but shorter showers on winter. It is important to have a consistent body temperature at this season. If possible, kindly avoid taking hot showers because it has the tendency to remove the essential oils of the body that maintains the balance of a normal skin.

Shampoos and Conditioners are a big part of bath time habits. Most of us rely on hair blowers to dry up our hair. Again, please avoid using hair blowers on winter season because it removes the important nutrients of the hair that leaves it dry and unhealthy. Not only that, our scalp is also affected.
