Winter started on December 21st and the temperatures are dropping. It’s time to start protecting your skin from the cold, harsh, dry air. There are many things you can do to protect and even improve your skin during the harsh winter months. Read below for some amazing products and how-tos to get your skin winter ready.
STEP 1: Prevent – Harsh winds, cold temperatures and even having your heater on too high can all have a negative impact on your skin during winter. So bundle up to protect your skin before you go outside and keep your heater under control or opt to use a humidifier.
STEP 2: Exfoliate – During the winter months our skin tends to build up excess dead skin cells, which can cause your skin to look dry and flaky as well as block your pores. It is important to exfoliate 2-3 times a week to allow your skin to breath. This will leave your skin clear, soft and smooth.
STEP 3: Maintain – Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! In the winter your skin can easily become dehydrated and can feel cracked, scaly, and sometimes itchy. Your skin needs moisture so we recommend that you drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and apply moisturizer morning and night.
