which can leave us looking dull, grey and dry.
The unpleasant combo of cold wind and central heating leaves our skin
seriously dehydrated and really not looking it’s best.
But don’t panic,
there are plenty of ways to bring a bit of summer glow back into your complexion.
1. Drink more water
An easy one but oh so true: if you aren’t drinking enough water, it’ll likely affect the appearance of your skin. Drinking plenty of water will help boost hydration from below your skin’s surface.
2. Be gentle with your skin
Avoid aggressive scrubs and cleansers which can cause skin irritation, tiny tears, redness, tightness, and flaky skin.
3. Exfoliate regularly
When dead skin cells build up on the outer layers of your skin, it can cause your skin to look dull, dry, and flakey, and can even clog your pores. Regular exfoliation will make your skin more smooth again and decrease the appearance of fine lines.
4. Add a vitamin C serum to your routine
Serums contain a high concentration of ingredients. They (and especially one with vitamin C) will help to brighten your skin, boost hydration, and diminish the signs of aging.
5. Use a retinol to stimulate collagen
Retinoids reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen. They also stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which improves skin color and thereby a healthier complexion.
6. Add a weekly mask to your beauty lineup
Adding a mask is another excellent way to get your skin glowing, especially if they contain antioxidants, hyaluronic acid or other hydrating and brightening ingredients.
7. Avoid water that is too hot
Hot water can strip natural oils, which can cause dryness and irritation. Instead, always use lukewarm water when cleansing your face.
8. Wear sunscreen daily
Even when it's cloudy or rainy, wear your sunscreen. This will help prevent UV-induced damage, including skin pigmentation, aging brown spots and a rough, dulling texture.
