Winter is hard on your skin…period!
Falling temps and whipping winds show absolutely NO love to your body’s largest organ.
On top of trying to avoid the sniffles, people also expect you to look your best every day. Here, I’ll offer a few tips that will help you become the winter beauty goddess you’ve always wanted to be.
Hydrate your skin! Invest in a good moisturizer and thank me later! Makeup covers color, not texture. If you’re serving scaly skin, we’ll be able to see it through your foundation. Stick to creamy, moisturizing formulas during the cooler months.
Exfoliate your lips! I love statement lips and I’m a huge fan of lipsticks! However…. Before you pull out your favorite tube of lipstick, give your lips a little love and exfoliate! Removing the dry skin from the lip is SO important! Not only will your lipstick apply more smoothly, your lips will also feel ah-maz-ing after you kick the dead skin to the curb. Get fancy and grab a ready made lip scrub or get all ‘DIY’ and grab some Vaseline and some sugar from the kitchen. Pop it on with your finger and massage it into your lips. No matter what, just do it!
Pick the right foundation During the winter months, go with a more moisturizing formula. Creams or rich liquid formulas provide extra moisture (which your skin will thank you for) and great coverage.
These quick and easy tips will help you to navigate the snow days with ease. Already use these tips and tricks in your routine? Have any that you’d like to share? Chime in below!
