The winter weather can be atrocious on our skin. Dry, flakey skin is no one’s friend and can cause patchiness and other skin issues.
Here's our Top Tips for Helping Your Skin Survive Winter
1. Use a sleeping mask
A sleeping mask is super hydrating and a great way to hydrate your skin as you sleep. Only use 1-2 times a week.
“I love a good sleeping mask. I wake up with baby soft skin which is a miracle in the winter time,” -Ana Editor-In-Chief.
2. Invest in a good Toner and Hydrating Serums
A toner is super important during the winter. Make sure it is not stripping (alcohol is not in the first several ingredients). The right toner will moisturize the skin and normalize pH levels. Serums are amazing for facial skin. It gives the skin an extra boost.
“This is my go-to Toner. It works miracles. I have purchased this over and over.” -Ana
3. Use a High Quality Bronzing Oil
Just because it is winter, doesn’t mean your skin has to have a nice glow. A bronzing oil will instantly give you vibrant skin.
“This bronzing oil gives me a subtle glow.”- Ana
4. Use a good primer
The extra barrier will help keep makeup from “caking” and will seal in your moisturizer.
“I do not step out without primer during the winter, regardless of wearing makeup or not.” -Ana
5. Make sure your Body Scrub/ Wash is Hydrating
Check the ingredients in your soap and make sure your soap is helping your skin survive winter, instead of stripping it. It’s winter time, so grab a sweet smell.
“Winter is a great time to wear warm sweet smells. I like to change my winter skincare smells to something warm and sweet.” -Ana
6. Make sure your Masks are Non-Drying
Once again, check the ingredients. Also, a sheet masks will be your friend during the winter.
“I love a good sheet mask during the winter. Super hydrating.”- Ana
