Winter Skin Care Tips

Don't let the winter weather wreak havoc on your skin!
Winter Skin Care

If you're findin' that your face is dry, itchy and flaky, you can blame the winter weather for your woes. Cold temperatures and harsh winds can wreak havoc on your complexion, but Kidzworld has the tips to help you care for your skin during the long winter months - check it out!

Winter Skin Care - Cleansers

It's definitely not a good idea to use a strong cleanser during the winter months, even if you're on the oily side, cuz it'll leave you with tight, itchy skin! Use a gentle cleanser like Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, which has chamomile and vitamin E to soothe and soften your skin. Also, resist any urge to use hot water, which will dry out your skin very quickly.

Winter Skin Care - Exfoliaters

It's necessary to exfoliate your skin during the winter to get rid of all those little flakes on your face. Just remember not to scrub your skin too hard, or else it'll turn red and make you look like you got windburned while snowboarding.

Winter Skin Care - Moisturizers

Be sure to moisturize inside and out. That means you should be drinking lots of water in addition to moisturizing your skin to keep it hydrated. You may need to use a heavy-duty moisturizer to combat the dryness and flakiness. A great one to try is Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer, which fights dry, flaky skin and prevents breakouts!

Winter Skin Care - Sunscreen

Don't skip the sunscreen! It's just as important to slather it on in the winter as it is in the summer cuz you can get sunburned even when the sun isn't shining. After applying your moisturizer, rub on sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher, especially before you hit the slopes cuz the rays reflect off snow and ice, doubling your exposure to the sun.

I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
