When winter weather rolls around, it's important to make some changes to your beauty routine! My skin tends to get dry in the winter like I'm sure it does for most people. Here are the steps that I take to combat dry skin in the winter:
This is definitely most important step! The moisturizer that I use is Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer that I purchased at Walmart. You apply this moisturizer when your skin is still wet and you don't have to rinse after applying it. You then just pat dry your skin before getting ready for the day!
This moisturizer absorbs 2x faster and it instantly locks in moisture on wet skin which is perfect when you're in a hurry in the morning. Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer is great if you have dry skin during the winter, and the two scents that are my favorite are coconut oil and green tea oil.
I'm a big fan of green tea, and the green tea oil smells amazing. If you feel stressed, this is the scent for you because it is very calming.
I love the smell of coconut, and the coconut oil scent is very refreshing and I can't get enough of it. This is the one that I've been using the most lately.
2. Treat your lips:
My lips get very chapped in the winter, so I make sure to reapply lip balm throughout the day. I have several that I love and I keep them at home, in my purse, and at work. No one wants dry chapped lips, especially if you are a lipstick wearer like me!
3. Drink more water:
Make sure that you are staying hydrated! It can be difficult to drink cold water when it's so cold outside, but drinking water is important for your skin's health and also your overall health. When you're dehydrated, you're also dehydrating your skin which you definitely don't want during the winter time! I aim to drink at least 80 ounces of water a day.
4. Avoid extremely hot water:
Whenever I use really hot water in the shower or when I wash my hands it makes my skin so dry. Instead, try using lukewarm water so that your can skin can stay softer. Bonus: you can also exfoliate if you feel that hot water has dried your skin out, or if your skin is dry in general.
