7 Winter Skin Solutions

Happy New Year ladies! Even though the days have gotten warmer and it seems like winter is slowly saying goodbye too soon, the one thing that we have all been plagued by is the dryness that comes with the chilly season. Especially considering we have had literally no rain to wet the earth this winter, with only a few showers here and there. So as I sat here lathering on the moisturizer to try and make sure my hands go back to being their soft selves, here are 7 winter skin solutions that you can swear by too.

Lather on that moisturizer

The more you moisturize in the winter, the better it is for your skin. Use an oil based moisturizer that keeps the hydration locked in. Even if you have oily skin, this is the type of weather where lotion can be your best friend.
Change up your lotion, never use the same lotion during the winter as the one you pick for the summer. Try something with Jojoba oil & see if the instruction label signifies your pick is best for a dry winter!

Coconut oil FTW

This is one of the most important things to add to your shopping list be it winter or well any other season. Coconut oil is not only great for the hair, it’s great for the skin and even the lips. You could also use olive oil to keep your lips from cracking!

Soothe your scalp

Buy a hydrating, soothing shampoo that works for your hair and your scalp. A lot of people suffer bad dandruff and itchy scalp during a dry winter. Buying a soothing shampoo would do you a lot of good.

Stock Up!

Make sure you have lotion/moisturizer wherever you go. During the winter we become like hermits so we don’t move around a lot out of fear of it being too cold. So make sure wherever you are in your house or if you are out and about, you have a handy moisturizer on you. I always keep a small bottle in my purse just in case.

Get a humidifier

These will not only save your skin but will save you some other winter woes as well, such as a dry nose and throat. It is a lifelong investment if you buy a pricey one from a good brand that will last you several winters. These are also especially great for people who have a love affair with heaters.

Avoid these:

Drinking water from a bottle
Irritating fabrics
Skipping Sunscreen
