Spending time outside in the summer and topping up our vitamin D reserves results in a healthy-looking glow. As fall approaches, the question is—how to keep this glow for as long as possible? There are some simple tips and tricks to boost your skin health over the colder months, read on for three key steps.
Eating a wide range of fruit and vegetables, as well as plenty of nuts, seeds, and oily fish such as salmon, will help you maintain healthy, smooth skin. Don’t forget to take a vitamin D supplement through the winter months – you may also want to consider topping up your intake of zinc and vitamin C, both of which contribute towards skin health.
Keeping your skin in tip-top condition will retain the glow and help it to feel smooth and soft. Use a natural skin softener, such as coconut oil or olive oil, and avoid hot baths or showers which can cause skin to dry out and flake.
Let Your Hair Grow
Whether you shave, wax, or remove your body hair in another way, try and leave it as long as possible in between sessions. Each time you remove hair, you also risk removing a thin layer of skin. This can cause dryness, but it can also mean the loss of your hard-earned glow.
If you are looking to really boost that summer glow, opt for safe methods – you can self-tan at home, or for a stunning result, enlist the services of a professional.
