How to Get a Natural Glow All Winter Long

Share Tweet Pin

From dry skin to chapped lips and everything in between, keeping your skin glowing through winter can seem like an impossible task. Fear not, because even in the coldest of climates you CAN keep your skin moisturized, tanned, and glowing!

Here's the Influenster guide to glowing skin in the winter time!

 

FIND THE RIGHT MOISTURIZER

Your skin might need some extra moisture in the winter time. It might need more SPF in the summer. Don't get stuck in the routine of buying the same moisturizer throughout all seasons. Pay close attention to your skin's needs. Whether you're trying to lighten dark spots, add extra moisture, or repair dry skin - there's a moisturizer out there for you.

MAKE SURE YOUR BRONZER & BLUSH ARE THE RIGHT SHADE

Similar to your moisturizer, you might need to switch up your bronzer of blush when you're in the thick of winter. The summer is all about playing up the golden bronze you get from sitting by the pool. After your tan has faded, change your bronzer appropriately.

PICK UP A WHITE EYELINER OR EYE BRIGHTENER

A white eyeliner or eye brightener is an easy way to add an instant glow to your beauty look. Lighetning up your eyes, and the area around your eyes, can minimize the "sleepy" look and help give you a fresh face any day of the week.

GRAB A GOOD SUNLESS TANNER

Sunless tanners can seem scary. Can you tell it's from a bottle? Is it all over my hands? But fear not, there are some excellent sunless tanners out there that can give you a nice, subtle, natural glow.

TRY A HUMIDIFER

Run a humidifier at night to moisturize the air in your bedroom. Not only will this ease dry skin, you'll be able to breathe the moist air easily, thus get a better nights sleep. Which brings us to our next point...

SLEEP MORE

Your skin, as well as the rest of your body, restores itself while you sleep. Lack of sleep often causes increased inflammatory response - which can create breakouts and skin sensitivity, among other conditions. The increase of these naughty inflammatory cells in the body also lead to an increase in the breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid - what gives skin its healthy, natural glow! So the simple answer - sleep more, glow more.

WALK OR BIKE TO WORK WHENEVER POSSIBLE

Although it's cold, try and walk or bike to work whenever you can. A couple extra minutes of sunshine everyday will help you get the Vitamin D necessary to keep a natural, healthy looking glow. Keep in mind you can still get sunburned in the winter, especially if there's UV-reflecting snow around. You can avoid this by adding a light SPF to your daily beauty routine.

DRINK MORE WATER

Drinking enough water througout the day can have all different kinds of awesome health benefits, but did you know it can also help you get glowing skin? Drink more water throughout the day so you can hydrate your skin from the inside out.

EXERCISE

Go for a run, ride your bike, work out - anything that gets you sweating will help eliminate toxic chemicals that build up under your skin. Plus, if you exercise regularly you'll maintain healthy circulation and blood flow throughout your body, which will help get blood flow (and glow) to your skin.
