Even if the weather is gloomy this winter, your face can be fresh and rosy. All you need are a few beauty tricks to keep your lovely glow through the season. Follow these tips to look your best even with the harsh winter weather.
Although you probably know how important it is to use moisturize year-round, you may want to use a thicker cream rather than a light lotion in the winter. Cold air can rob your face of its dewy freshness, so replenish daily with moisturizing cream. Your hands and feet may also need a thicker lotion to keep from cracking and peeling from dry weather.
A relaxing facial scrub will remove dead skin cells and encourage new cell growth for a rosy glow. Use a gentle exfoliating soap or cloth to remove debris and grease from your pores. Rinse with clear water, dry your face completely, and then moisturize.
Adjust Your Makeup
Winter makeup may be a little brighter than your summer look. Try a foundation that is a shade darker than your natural skin to add more color. Bright eye shadow can bring your eyes into sharper focus. Cheery lip colors give your overall face more of a wow factor. Don’t forget a bit of blush on the cheeks to bring back color that you may naturally get from the sun during the summer months.
Whiten Your Teeth
Have your teeth whitened for the holiday celebrations and to brighten your face in general. White teeth are youthful and attractive, and give you a healthy look. While your skin is important, yellow and stained teeth can be a distraction to even the most flawless face.
Try a New Hairstyle
To bring your face into seasonal focus, experiment with hairstyles to find one that accents your best facial features. Maybe it is time for a soft bang across your forehead, or layers along your cheekbones. Chic ponytails tied with ribbons or decorated with bows help to center attention at your face and head.
Add Colorful Accents
Earrings and a nose ring or other facial piercings, if tactful, can add an exotic element to your wintertime beauty. A colorful scarf at your throat, a cute hat or cap, and a hair accessory can all contribute to a fresh look that is a completely new you for the winter.
You don’t have to spend tons of money or time to look your best in the winter. Just freshen your facial features and add accents for emphasis and you will have a beautiful and memorable appearance. Clean, wholesome, decorous and bright will be your new defining words. Informational credit to Knellinger Dental Excellence.
