6 winter skin care tips

Winter brings snow days, hot chocolate and cozy movie nights! It ALSO brings cold weather, harsh wind and dry skin. Follow these 6 easy tips to keep your skin soft and glowy all winter long.


Dry skin will stay dry and flaky unless you start exfoliating! Pick a gentle scrub and deep cleanse your skin to get off the dead skin and leave a fresh base for your moisturizer.

Stay warm, but not hot.

Everyone loves taking a long, hot shower during the winter, but hot water will strip your skin of natural moisture! To keep your skin healthy and hydrated, keep showers short with lukewarm water to avoid irritating your skin.

Drink water

In addition to moisturizing your skin, you also should be staying hydrated from the inside out by drinking plenty of water. Drinking water helps clear your skin of toxins and promotes a more radiant glow.

Avoid fragrance and alcohol

Toners with alcohol can further dry your skin out. Use toners sparingly to avoid worsening the problem. We also recommend avoiding products with fragrance as it can sometimes leave your skin feeling itchy and irritated.

Protect your hands

Between the colder weather, constantly washing your hands and using sanitizer, your hands are definitely suffering from dryness this winter. Try applying a rich hand cream at night and give your hands the chance to get their own beauty sleep and restore moisture.
