Here's how you retain glowing skin. Follow these pre-bedtime rituals to bolster your skin to be the best ever.
The most important cold weather skin care tip is to prevent excessive drying of your skin by following a skin care regime that can keep it moisturized in every step.
Sleeping position: Switch from cotton to silk pillowcases. And lie on your back.
Rehydrate: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin soft and supple.
Cleansing skin: Skin cells shed naturally every 28 days, but sometimes they can stick around, building up on your skin and causing an uneven texture. To keep these dead cells moving, use an alpha-hydroxy acid-based cleanser at least twice a week, which will leave you with glowing, smooth skin, since the acids in cleansers reach deeper into your skin's layers than physical scrubs, breaking the bonds between dead cells and loosening them
Double cleanse: Often you will find a rogue makeup still lingering on your face despite cleansing and washing your face. To avoid this, first use an oil-based cleanser once you’ve removed your make-up, followed by a gentle facial cleanser.
