Prep Your Skin for a Winter Wonderland with Makeover Essentials

So fall is over & winter is here. As the weather gets colder, it’s important to take extra
steps to take care of your skin the way it deserves. It can be really easy to forget
about skin care when you are focusing more on keeping warm, but there are some
simple things you can do to avoid dry skin this winter.
1. Solidify a Daily Moisturizing Routine: The power of moisturizer should not
be underestimated. If you have sensitive skin, be sure to choose a moisturizer
free of harsh synthetic chemicals or perfumes to avoid further drying. As
weather conditions change, you should begin using moisturizers that are
oil-based instead of water-based. The oil will create a protective layer over
your skin that will hold in moisture better than other water-based oils. Try
using shea oil or butter for a smooth feeling finish.
2. Use Sunscreen, Always: It may sound strange, but sunscreen is not just for
summer! Sunscreen is an essential product for keeping your skin looking
good, even during winter months. Remember that even when it is cold, the
sun still shines. If it is snowing, light reflects and can dry out your skin even
more quickly. For this reason, try applying a little sunscreen to your face and
hands before you go outside and, if you’re spending a lot of time outside, be
sure to reapply regularly! An added benefit: avoiding the aging effect of the
sun!
Keep these two tips in mind and you’ll keep your winter skin looking great through
this winter wonderland!
