Hi everyone! We are officially a couple weeks into the New Year, and the 2018 resolutions are in full swing. One common item I see on most of my friends resolution lists is a better winter beauty skincare routine. The weather on the east coast has been brutal the past couple of weeks, so this resolution is fitting. I’m not going to lie, in the past I have put my winter skin routine on the back burner, but not anymore.
Ever since I got back to NYC after the holidays I’ve noticed that my skin has been super dry. I took this opportunity to dive into my bag of beauty products and start moisturizing like crazy. Today’s post is dedicated to the best winter beauty products this year! If you have any favorite winter beauty products, let me know in the comments below. I love hearing from you guys! Enjoy! xo
5 Tips for Healthy Winter Skin:
– Cover exposed skin when heading outdoors.
– Wash with lukewarm water – Hot showers strip oils from your skin.
– Humidify your home.
– Choose your moisturizer carefully; opt for gentile, natural products.
– Use SPF even during the winter.
Face wash is the start to good winter skin care. During the winter use a hydrating face wash that won’t dry out your skin. I always prefer to use a face wash versus makeup wipes because they can dry out your skin. Below are some of my favorite face washes!
I love exfoliating during the winter because it gives my skin a natural glow on dull days. However, the first thing you should know about exfoliating is that you should only do it once or twice a week. When exfoliating make sure not to rub too hard or it can leave your skin raw.
A serum is basically a more concentrated moisturizer. However, make sure to use it as a counterpart to your moisturizer. This is a great option during the winter to add some moisture to your dry skin. A good serum will for sure brighten and tighten your skin. I always recommend one with Vitamin C in it!
Moisturizer is the most essential skin care product for winter. If you see dry or flaky patches, there’s a good chance that you aren’t taking care of your skin or moisturizing enough. Make sure to know your skin type when you are searching for a new moisturizer. Knowing your skin type will help you find a product that will eliminate your skin concerns.
