Taking care of yourself has positive consequences for your skin!The skin care does not only involve the use of cosmetic products. Your rhythm of life and your daily habits play an important role.
HydrateThink about drink water in sufficient quantities (tea or herbal tea is a good way to warm up while hydrating in the winter). Hydration on the inside shows on the outside. We recommend that you drink eight glasses of water (a little less than two liters) per day, your skin will be more radiant and hydrated.
Stop (or reduce) smoking
We endorse November as "Smoke Free Month", but if you quit smoking all year round, it would be even better for you and your skin! Smoking decreases the flow of oxygen to the skin and accentuates the wrinkles above and below the lips. On top of that, it gives you a dull, grayish complexion. We agree... It's high time toquit smoking?
Limit the pleasure of hot waterYes, we all like to take hot showers to warm up after a very cold day! Unfortunately, taking baths and/or showers that are too hot dries out your skin, promotes hair breakage and the appearance of varicose veins. If you have dry skin, you should choose to shower rather than take a bath.
For the more courageous, you can also finish your shower with a cold water jet. Cold water revitalizes blood circulation and thus promotes the circulation of oxygen in the body, venous return and the transport of nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of organs.
In addition, cold water gives your hair strength, softness and shine. It prevents the appearance of dandruff and prevents hair loss. As you can see, cold water, the cold shower So it's not all torture, just turn the tap gently to get used to it gradually. For an optimal effect, the temperature should be between 10 and 20 degrees.

A balanced diet will limit skin aging. Excess alcohol and caffeine can also dehydrate your body. Drink in moderation!
To limit the drying of your skin, remember to cover yourself well (especially your hands) to avoid exposing your skin to the cold and wind.
