From the moment winter comes to town, it can be a battle against your skin. The cold temperatures and barren weather leave us with dry, scaly, cracked skin that make us feel anything but beautiful. This winter, fight back – combat the dryness with all of the weapons you have in your arsenal!
From lifestyle changes to product swaps to simple treatments, there are so many little things (and some big ones!) you can do to keep your skin healthy and moisturized through even the chilliest of conditions. Read on for our top tips for fighting back against dryness this season!
Those of you like me who live in cold weather know that keeping your skin moisturized is hard! It’s like a full-on job to keep the itchy, flaky skin away! But I have a few tips and products that I adore and help so much!
Knowing your skin type is super essential to picking your skincare! I have learned that I have dry skin year-round and have found the best products for me! Things to remember, you don’t need all these products. You just need a good cleanser and moisturizer!
1. FACE CLEANSER
Facial oil cleanser has been a game-changer for my skin! Especially in the colder months! Not only is it easy for this lazy girl, but it also helps me save water!
- My favorite facial oils & cleaners are:
- Primarily Pure Facial Oil!
- Mad Hippie Cream Cleanser (I mix this with my acure facial scrub & it’s amazing!)
- e.l.f. Holy Hydration! Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm has been amazing & I best at getting all my makeup off!
Finding the toner that works for your skin has been the most challenging thing too! I thought toner was toner, but this is not true! This fantastic toner from Mad Hippie has been a game-changer! My skin feels great & I use it on my freshly shaved legs too!
I am addicted to serums and have tired a lot! These two are my all-time favorites, and I use them daily!
The amount of moisturizers I have used too is a LOOOONG list! From anything, you can get from Target to specifically from estheticians. I did a LOT of research and found Weleda Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Body Cream. I will no longer use anything else! Mixing this with the facial oil & WOW it makes a world of a difference! Even my eye wrinkles have been minimized!
5. FACIAL OIL
This is something I just started adding to my nightly routine! And I have to say it’s amazing!!!! Smells so good, and my face feels amazing in the morning! Mad Hippy Facial Oil is divine!
THE EXTRA STEP
SUPER HYDRATING FACE MASK
Every other day or at least once a week I put on the Rael Hydrating Face Mask. I LOVE this mask! Having tried so many, but this one by far has been the most hydrating! I put it on at night and I wake up with beautiful skin! This is especially good the day before your wedding day or a photoshoot with Natural Intuition Photography.
The body is one of the hardest things to keep soft as the day goes on. But I have found mixing body oil with body lotion works the best!
NON SKIN CARE
Humidifier! Get yourself one for your home, bedroom, or office! I have a little one by my bed at night, and it’s lovely! I mainly bought it for our plants. But it has made my skin less itchy!
Stay Hydrated! Drinking water is even more important during the drier months! So keep that favorite water bottle close & filled! Your skin will thank you!
So there you have it, friends – our best tips and tricks for keeping your skin hydrated all winter long! By incorporating as many of these suggestions into your daily routine as possible, you can help fight the good fight against dryness and keep your skin looking it’s absolute best no matter how cold it gets outside. And who knows? With a little bit of extra effort (and maybe a better moisturizer), you might find that you actually enjoy wintertime a whole lot more. Go out and give it your best shot!
