During the cold winter months we need to take a little extra care of our skin. Here are some of our tips you can use for an effective winter skincare routine, so that you can feel your best all winter long.
It is always important to listen to what your skin needs and responds to. When you feel as if your skin needs a change, you can usually solve this by either changing your skincare routine or adding one or two products. The foundation of your skincare routine is very important. Always use a daily cleanser to remove any excess oils or dirt from your skin. Then follow with an exfoliant to remove any dead skin cells and finally moisturize your face to get that ultimate GLOW!
Skin Care Hack #1: Limit shower time and temperature
We all love a good hot shower during these cold months, but keep in mind it will dry out your skin and even strip away the natural oils your skin needs to maintain proper moisture levels. We know it’s tempting babe.. but shower in lukewarm water instead, as well as when you wash your face.
Skin Care Hack #2: Layer your skincare products
It’s time to start layering your sweaters for this winter season, but it's also time to start layering your skin care products. To better prevent dry skin, apply multiple hydrating products, one right on top of the next. Applying a serum under your Clay And Glow Moisturizer for the added hydration your skin craves!
Skin Care Hack #3: Stock up on hand cream
Our hands are often left vulnerable to the cold and harsh temperatures. One of the easiest ways to prevent dry hands is using a daily hand cream.
Skin Care Hack #4: Apply sunscreen - Even on grey winter days
On those bright winter days it’s essential for applying a sunscreen to protect your skin against any sun rays. But don’t be fooled by the dark grey days, as the sun’s UV rays can still be harmful towards your skin and cause damage.
Skin Care Hack #5: Exfoliate your lips
No one likes chapped and dry lips. Your lips are more sensitive during the winter because they produce less natural oils than the rest of your face. Add a lip scrub to your routine, followed by either a serum or a lip balm. You can also message your lips with a lip oil as a mask while sleeping. Then you’ll definitely wake up with some silky smooth lips!
Skin Care Hack #6: Apply a night cream
The sun starts to set earlier and our days start to feel shorter, and all we want to do is curl up in our cozy beds -why not make the most out of it? Applying a night cream before going to bed all over your face, neck, and chest can be very helpful to prevent dry or chapped skin. Now that’s real beauty sleep!
Skin Care Hack #7: Extra care
Our skin become even more dry during the winter months, therefor adding a hydrating serum, to your routine or replacing a liquid exfoliant with a lotion is definitely a good idea. But sometimes your skin needs a little something extra. Applying a face mask once or twice a week in the evening can help wake up your glowing skin.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate ladies! Always cleanse your face with a daily cleanser, and don’t forget to moisturize during the day and at night! Eat clean and drink enough water to keep your body and skin glowing all winter long! We will get through it together!
