Easy Skin Care Tips For Cold Weather

Start using your humidifier. To remedy a dry home, bring in a humidifier and set humidity level between 45% and 55% to infuse the air with enough moisture for you skin to reap the benefits.

Don’t use harsh soap. Deodorant and antibacterial soaps are especially harsh on your skin, compromising your skin’s natural moisture barrier. Instead, opt for mild, fragrance-free cleansers.

Give your hands extra TLC. Moisturize hands every time after washing. Trade in traditional hand sanitizer for a combination sanitizer that contains moisturizer or lotion.

Soften your soles. Your regular body lotion may not be enough for your feet. Look for a thicker cream to penetrate rough, dry skin on feet.

Ease up on facial exfoliating. Reduce the frequency of facial peels and masks to avoid irritating your skin.

Always go fragrance-free dye-free options. Avoid irritants often found in everyday products by selecting fragrance-free or dye-free options. Un-scented means there’s a masking scent and this is just another form of fragrance designed not to have a smell.

Eat the harvest. The best high-antioxidant fruits and vegetables in their peak season right now. My favorites are cranberries, blueberries, pumpkin, pomegranate and squash. These foods will help feed your skin from the inside out and keep it looking its youngest most beautiful best

TIPS TO HELP PROTECT COLOR-TREATED HAIR & KEEP IT LOOKING FABULOUS!

Long-Lasting Hair Color Depends on Well-Conditioned Hair

Hair color can make hair more porous, which causes it to absorb and release moisture more easily. This can cause loss of color molecules every time your hair gets wet. Here are tips on how to keep as much moisture in your hair as possible, by maintaining the best possible condition.

Have Your Stylist Use Only Quality, Conditioning Hair Colors

Begin by asking your hair colorist to use a professional hair color with conditioning properties that will continue to condition the hair as the weeks go by. Hair color with natural oils will help retain moisture in your color-treated hair and leave it looking shiny and healthy. Ammonia-free haircolor is another great professional option that treats hair with TLC?
Remember: Red Dye is Most Susceptible to Color Loss

– Red hair colors tend to fade faster because they have the largest molecules. The molecule size makes it more difficult for red dyes to penetrate deeply into the hair, thus they dissipate more rapidly. So when going for a red hue, be sure to have your stylist use hair color that maximizes high-definition color results with minimum stress to the hair’s cuticle.

Shampoo Your Color-Treated Hair Less Frequently

– To prevent water from washing away your vibrant color, the answer is simple: Wash your hair less often. To retain those natural oils that help condition your color-treated hair, shampoo just two or three times per week, and never more than every other day. This will help your color last longer and help maintain health in your colored hair.

On the In-Between Days, Use a Color-Safe Dry Shampoo on Color-Treated Hair

— To help keep color-treated hair looking fresh, flip your hair over and spray dry shampoo at the roots to soak up oil.
After Coloring, Wait 2 Days Before You Shampoo

– When you color your hair, wait at least 48 hours to shampoo, preferably longer. If you can go three or four days before shampooing, even better. This will give the color plenty of time to set.
When You Don’t Shampoo, Keep Your Hair Dry in the Shower

— During those off days, wear a shower cap to keep your color-treated hair from getting wet while showering as this can cause some color to fade. Or, pull your hair up into a loose bun or a ponytail to protect it from getting wet.
