It should come as no surprise that cold weather is really bad for your skin. Did you know exposing your skin to cold weather can be just as damaging as the sun can be? So even when those temps start to lower, don’t toss your skincare routine to the wind just yet. This winter, we’ve got a fool-proof formula that will help you skip the dry skin and chapped lips. Here are our top 5 favorite skincare tips you need this winter:
Don’t Over Cleanse Your Skin: If you have acne you may want to scrub your face every chance you get. It is important to only wash your face when needed during the winter season. Use a gentle cleanser during the winter, especially if your skin is sensitive, and remember – only use a scrub once or twice a day!.
Moisturizer is Life: This is an obvious solution during the winter. Moisturize, moisturize and moisturize! A light and bright moisturizer will totally and completely change your skin game. Even if you don’t want your face to be greasy, don’t skip moisturizing, especially, in the winter!
Don’t Toss Your Sunscreen Out: Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean sunburns and sun damage disappear. Buy a moisturizer that has an SPF of 20 or more. You can even try to buy a foundation that has built-in SPF, too!
Invest in a Good Serum: If you don’t already use a face or eye serum before bed, winter is the perfect time to start. Whether younger or older, it’s never too early or too late to use a firming serum or anti-aging serum. Use a little bit of it at night, your skin will soak it up and be glowing first thing in the morning!
Hydration: Drink as much water as you can. Even when you think you’ve drunk enough – drink some more! Your skin responds quickly to hydration and equally as quick to dehydration. Not only does water help skin look firm and hydrated but it will help you keep pigment in your skin.
