With fall coming to a close and winter on it’s way in dry skin can become a problem even for those with normal to oily skin. To help combat this issue we have gathered a list of the best things to do AND not do to keep your skin well hydrated and problem free.
Keep the showers to a minimum and the tap on warm not hot. While in the winter in can be tempting to take long hot baths or showers, hot water and prolonged exposure to water can be very drying for the skin. Keep it short and cooler and your skin will thank you. Remember finish with moisturizing lotion when your skin is just lightly damp and you will boost the moisture retention.
Sunscreen is key. Just because the sun is hiding doesn’t mean you can skip the sunscreen. UVA rays are a year round concern in all climates and don’t stick to when the sun is out, so be sure to apply a good strong sunscreen everyday. Our Sunscreen Protection Code is a great product to use each and every day.
Use leave in conditioner at least once a week. One of the most common issue is your scalp gets flakey and itchy in the winter. By applying a leave in condition from the roots to the end you can prevent split ends and help hydrate the scalp at the same time. Another option is to use a hair masque to really soften and hydrate.
Moisturize Day and Night. Nothing perks up your skin immediately like a deeply hydrating moisturizer and twice a day is key to keeping your skin properly perked! Try our Radiant Caviar Hydrating Cream and experience an instant hydration boost like non other.
