Winter is the time full of wind gusts, snow flurries, and crisp temperatures. But how does this affect your skin? It’s a time of shifting, for sure, from oily skin to dry skin. But fear not, there are ways to maintain your glowy complexion.
Lips: It’s a universally known truth, that when winter comes, so do the chapped lips. So it’s essential you always keep a trusty balm on you wherever you go. For a simple balm, go for Smith’s Rosebud Salve. Its smooth consistency is a relief for any chapped lip. For a little color, try out the Sugar Lip Treatment.
Face: To avoid dry patches, it’s vital that you keep your skin in good condition. To start, use a moisturizing face wash. For some, a cold cream cleanser is ideal – it doesn’t require rinsing with water. Rinsing can often draw out oils that are important for a healthy complexion. A good cream cleanser is SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser. Another great type of cleanser is an oil cleanser – it doubles as a moisturizer and a wash. Try out the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. For an all around classic cleanser, go for the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, found at most drugstores. The formula is soap-free and fragrance-free, resulting in a mild intensity on the face.
Next up is the toner. Toner is an important part of the face routine that many neglect. It clears the face of toxins left by the face wash and moisturizer. Moreover, toner helps rebalance the skin and helps it glow. For a hydrating moisturizer, try out Kiehl’s Cucumber Toner. This product is alcohol-free and non-drying, leaving skin smooth. To apply toner, use a cotton pad to reach all areas of the face and let is soak into the skin. Following toner, moisturizers come in. It’s important at this time of year to find a moisturizer that is alcohol-free and contains natural oils, as that’s going to help maintain a healthy complexion. Try out Origins A Perfect World Age-Defense Moisturizer.
Body: For your body, again it’s important to moisturize. First off, investing in a high-quality body lotion will pay off in the long run. We recommend Jergens Crema Deep-Conditioning Shea Butter. Finally, purchasing a humidifier will help increase the moisture in rooms and helps to prevent dry skin and chapped lips. There are so many to choose from out there but try The Crane Penguin EE-865.
We hope these tips and tricks will help you keep a healthy complexion this winter season. So stay warm and healthy!
