But whilst you are enjoying all these, don’t forget that dry heat is a common factor that comes with all of these indulgences and unfortunately it promotes water loss from the skin.

Quite often this will result in a dry/dehydrated skin, a flushed or a sluggish complexion. During the winter months keep up your fluid intake. Water is absolutely crucial for maintaining your health and beauty in optimum condition.

Try drinking water instead of tea or coffee at work. As a healthy alternative when dining out, try sparkling mineral water with a wedge of lime or lemon….it still has that desired fizzy sensation but with no hidden calories. Remember also that the full range of herbal teas that are available on the market . There are many that are most appropriate for the cooler months. A chai tea is a wonderful caffeine free option. Providing a luxurious warming feeling , but also has lots of liver detoxifying benefits .

To combat a dry/dehydrated skin make sure that you have a well-balanced diet and follow a skin care routine that provides important nourishment, rejuvenation and protection.

An effective skin care routine will not only make the skin look better, but make you feel more confident and positive about yourself.
