Cool weather has just begun and you may already see a change in your skin. Seasonal skin careswitches make a big difference in how skin handles the different climate. Don’t wait until you are duking it out with skin issues, add these winter skin care essentials to your routine ASAP.
Dry skin has a way of sneaking up on us. One minute your skin is soft and glowing, the next it is red, rough, and irritated.
Here’s the trick to handling winter skin dryness. Head it off before it happens. You may not feel like using a cleansing balm or rich moisturizer when your skin is behaving, but adding in one item a day that is more emollient will stop dryness in its tracks.
1. Josh Rosebrook Moisturizing Cleanser
Unless you have very oily skin, switching to a cream cleanser during cold weather will keep skin soft, supple, and hydrated.
2. 100% Pure Organic Flax Seed Cleansing Oil
Oil cleansing not only keeps skin from drying out, but is a great way to remove makeup. Use on its own or prior to cleansing with cream cleanser.
3. de Mamiel Restorative Cleansing Balm
Cleansing balm is a new star in the skin care world. It melts into skin, removes dirt and makeup, and leaves behind a baby soft complexion. A must try this winter.
4. 100% Pure Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask
Facial masks have a reputation for detoxing and drawing out impurities, and they do this well. But there are masks with the sole purpose of moisturizing and nurturing the skin. Great for calming inflammation too.
5. de Mamiel Autumn Facial Oil
There is seriously a facial oil for every skin type or issue. Of course, they work amazingly well at treating dry skin too. Here’s a winter skin care tip: Rather than applying your facial oil under your moisturizer, pat it on top to seal in hydration.
6. Tammy Fender Spontaneous Recovery Cream
Yes, daily moisturizer plays a major role in any good winter skin care regimen. It should be emollient without being greasy and made up of ingredients that offer deep down hydration.
7. Kahina Giving Beauty Night Cream
For nighttime, go for a mega infusion of moisture. Gentle yet deeply nourishing ingredients heal and rejuvenate skin overnight.
8. Earth Tu Face Face Balm
A skin balm is great for targeting areas that tend to become super dry, like the area around the nose and mouth. Pat a balm on over moisturizer and let it soak in and repair skin. Don’t be afraid to reapply throughout the day.
9. Bottega Organica Vanilla Nourishing Lip Balm
Who doesn’t have a lip balm handy during winter months? You know how fast dry, cracked lips can sneak up on you. Make sure you have a pucker protector that does the job.
10. The Beauty Chef Beauty Fix Balm
A non-petroleum salve is definitely a winter skin care staple. Keep a jar around for treating cracked skin, irritation, and inflammation. Perfect if you suffer from eczema or the dreaded dryness under eyes.
