I hope your New Year is off to a great start! Today I want to share a few of my skincare tips I use during the Winter months.
1. Switch up your skincare hydration routine
South Carolina is a state that has unpredictable weather, so our Winters can be mild. There are times that we have extremely cold temperatures. and it can dry my skin. To prevent this I try to use a hydrating skincare routine despite the temperature.
2. Remember to use sunscreen
Even though it's Winter, your face is still being exposed to the sun. I've gotten better at applying suncreen on my face and neck over the past few years.
3. Use warm water, not hot water.
I love taking a hot shower, but using really hot water can dry and damage your skin. So I use warm water to take showers and baths.
3. Gently exfoliate your skin.
Since Winter can be harsh on the skin, I gently exfoliate. Vigorously exfoliating your skin can cause irritation. I try to exfoliate my skin at least twice a week to remove dead skin to help keep my skin heathy and glowing.
4. Moisturizing and hydrate your body during and after showering/bathing
During the Winter months, I use Moisturizing body washes and hydrating body washes. Keeping the rest of your skin healthy is just as important as your face. In speaking of your face, don't forget to gently exfoliate your lips and use a lip balm.
5. Hydrate your body
As you hydrate your skin don't forget to hydrate your body as well. Drink water!
