How To “Winterize” Your Skin

When the north winds are blowing and Jack Frost is nipping at your nose, you need stronger products than usual to protect your skin. Say goodbye to your astringents, pore strips, facial peels, and exfoliators for the frigid winter months. Stay away from products containing Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids. Naturally, you do not want to use any products that will strip your face of oil and dry you out.
Instead, load up on rich, decadent moisturizing creams for your face and whipped body butters for the rest of your skin. Never ever start the day without a daily facial moisturizer! At night, there are creams that condition and replenish the skin while you sleep. Use a humidifier in your bedroom to prevent the dry air from bothering you.
When showering or washing your face, use warm water instead of hot (which removes the natural moisture from the skin). If you’re taking a bath, be sure to add some bath oil to coat your dermis. Use mild soaps or liquid cleansers, rather than deodorant soaps that are likely to dry you out. Instead of shaving cream, use shampoo or liquid soap. Whenever you wash your hands, apply hand cream afterwards to lock in moisture.
Don’t forget to wear sunscreen when you’re heading outdoors. Even though it doesn’t feel warm and the sun may be hiding behind clouds, your skin is still vulnerable to UV rays unless you protect it. Keep moisturizing lip balm with you at all times so you remain kissable all winter long.

    For me, it’s kinda more difficult to maintain a good-looking face during winter than sunny days. It’s mainly because my skin is not used into winter. What I assure is to have a moisturizer on everytime i go out. With this feed, i guess I’m all ready to welcome the winter season =)
