Sure, winter weather is good for sipping hot chocolate and readying by the fire, but it’s also full-on dry skin season. We found fab products to scrub up with that’ll keep your skin hydrated. Finally! No more winter flakes, scales or itchiness.
Choose a cream-based facial cleanser that’s formulated for sensitive skin to remove dirt while not over-drying your face. Follow with your fave moistutrizing lotion (with SPF!). Got really dry skin? Try washing with face wash only before bed.
We’re big fans of a gentle exfoliator, especially ‘cause sometimes salt-based ones can dry ya out. It’ll gently buff off dead skin and leave behind a major amount of moisture.
Harsh truth: showering under scorching water zaps your skin of its natural moisture. The trick? Turn the temp down to something that’s more warm than scalding, and pick a body wash that’s stacked with hydrators, like jojoba and sweet almond oil.
During winter months, avoiding the soap is key. Lotion-inspired body washes are a much better pick. This one has three hydrating butters (mango, cocoa and shea) to leave your skin glowing.
