Get skin ready for winter 2021 and enjoy good-looking skin year-round
Here’s the thing… as soon as you get skin ready for winter 2020, there’s no doubt you will enjoy good-looking skin year-round…
Now it’s time to get ready for winter 2021.
Every little change causes stress. And the same happens to our skin.
That’s why it’s very common, to face, as soon as the temperatures go down, to face some chapped lips and cheeks, as well as some flakiness from dry skin.
Best Tips to get skin ready for winter in 2021!
The earliest we start taking care of our skin, the better your skin’s barriers will be when the freezing cold temperatures start to knock on your door.
The basics are still the same: Cleanse, Treat, Moisturize, and Sunscreen, however, subtle changes should be considered to keep up the good healthy look, cultivated during the summer!
Embrace changes, the right attitude really make things easier
Either you like it or not, cold temperatures are coming, and like it or not, every year is the same thing.
Just think about this for a second. If you don’t adapt to the circumstance, Mother Nature is gonna do Her “work” anyways, and naturally, you’ll “have” change…
So why resist? Face it, Embrace it. It’s easier.
Your immune system strong to face the winter weather in 2021
For healthy beautiful looking skin, your immune system has to be in top shape.
The change in temperatures creates natural stress in the body to keep it warm.
These constant changes in the temperature, make the body produce a lot of energy, and when all this energy is not replenished, with good, healthy, clean foods, the immune system gets compromised.
The immune system, guys, is nothing else than a combination of cells (protein, hormones, organs working together) that protect our body against infections.
The good thing about that is that when you’re eating that healthy, creating a perfect environment for your body to thrive, your skin will also have the perfect pH, moisture, elasticity…
It’s all about healthy habits…being mindful of what you eat.

Lips first. Cold temperatures may damage your lips in minutes…
Lips are very sensitive and thin. Lips get dry 10X faster than any other part of the face.
For many, the first gust of cold wind, when hits an unprepared lip… you’re done!
Use ones with natural ingredients, such as coconut oil, beeswax…
During the day, the ones with sunscreen are the best alternatives as we can’t stress enough that sunscreen is essential for any healthy skin.
Besides applying constantly, every time you’re going outdoors, during your nighttime skincare routine, remember to slaughter a thick lip balm on your lips… ahhhh and vaseline counts too!
Pay attention to water temperature, to avoid dry skin during winter 2021
As crazy as it sounds, because let’s be honest, who does not appreciate a super warm shower, as soon you’ve been beaten the whole day by freezing temperatures?
It’s good for the soul, right?
Hot showers remove all the skin’s natural barrier, which is a thin layer of natural oils, (aka glycolipids).
These thin layers, when it’s gone, turn the skin vulnerable to getting, dry itchy, and irritated.
One of the best replenishers of the skin’s natural barrier is the X9 Brightening Treatment Serum. Loaded with Antioxidants (Vitamin-E and Vitamin-F) with glycolipids.
Not only to replenish the natural barrier of the skin but also to balance pH, essential for a youthful lifted appearance.
Exfoliate your skin during winter 2021 for a year-round good looking skin
This is probably the best time of the year to explore new boundaries, in the sense of using BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acids), and AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids).
Especially because there’s less sunlight, which helps these acids work well on evening skin tone.
While AHA like Salicylic Acid, and works more in the out layers of the skin, BHA, such as Glycolic Acid, goes deep in the layers to remove dead skin cells.
They are important to keep the year-round good-looking skin.
Both with low pH, which means more results, without irritation. Improving the texture and tone of your skin.
Keep up the water intake during winter 2021 for plumped skin
Probably one of the most neglected things people do during winter is to forget to drink water.
Many people generally believe that only if we’re sweating and hot, that we need to replenish fluids.
Even though we need to replenish fast and more during the summer, our body is still on activity, such as breathing, walking, sleeping, during the winter, and we lose moisture, through perspiration.
Like any other part of the body, made with more than 65% of water, our skin is no different.
If we don’t replenish our fluids, our skin will look dehydrated, pale, and lack elasticity.
Avoiding dehydration to get skin ready for winter 2021
As soon as the freezing temperatures hit our face, sometimes it feels like a crack is forming on the cheeks.
That’s why a lot of people associate applying a thicker moisturizer, or cream on the face.
All of that is true, however, what really keeps the water content of the skin, is the quality of the ingredients on the moisturizer.
Here’s the thing, some creams could be thicker, but if not with the right ingredients, they can lead to breakouts.
Pay attention to the ingredients, jojoba oil, coconut oil, algae peptides are great ingredients to keep the skin moisturized and protected.
Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen this winter 2021 and all year-round
This is just because the sun is in the Top 3 premature aging factors for the skin, so again it’s never too much to say…
Rain or shine, cold weather or hot weather, sunny or cloudy, sunscreen is mandatory to prevent signs of aging. (Wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots).
