5 Ways To Fight Dry Skin This Winter.

As the temperature turns cold, dry and flaky skin starts to form.

Here are some helpful skin tips I love to recommend to clients that help with the dry skin blues.

Take Lukewarm Showers Over Hot Showers.

Steam from a hot shower or bath tends to dehydrate, and irritate the skin. This happens by stripping the protective barrier and depleting the natural oils. Lukewarm showers or baths even just a few times a week can keep skin hydrated. If your skin feels tight and looks flushed after your bath or shower, your water is too hot.

Exfoliate Two Times A Week.

There are plenty of things to avoid during the winter, but exfoliating isn't one of them. Exfoliating helps with removing the dry, dead skin cells from the surface. When you exfoliate, it reveals softer and smoother looking skin that allows your hydrating products to penetrate effectively and your skin to feel more replenished. One of my favorite winter exfoliants is the Hydrating Enzyme Mask from IMAGE Skincare. This product is an enzyme exfoliant packed with papaya, pineapple and hyaluronic acid to gently exfoliate and hydrate the skin.

Apply Your Skincare Products While Your Skin Is Still Damp.

When your skin is damp, it allows maximum penetration of your skincare products. For best results, apply a hydrating facial spray followed by your serum then moisturizer.

Use A Facial Oil To Seal In All Your Skincare Products.
