Check out these winter skin care must-haves!
We are in the cold months! It is important to pay extra attention to our skincare routines. Cold weather and indoor heating can take a toll on our skin, leading to dryness, irritation, and even breakouts. But as busy moms, we know that finding the time and energy to properly care for ourselves can be a challenge.
Here are a few tips to help you prioritize your skincare during the busy winter months:
1. Keep your skin clean: It’s easy to get lazy about washing our faces during the winter, especially if we’re spending more time indoors. But it’s important to remove dirt, oil, and makeup from our skin on a daily basis to keep pores clear and prevent breakouts. A gentle, oil-based cleanser can be especially effective at removing makeup and hydrating the skin.
2. Don’t forget to exfoliate: Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and improve the overall texture of our skin. Just be sure to use a gentle exfoliator and not overdo it, as winter weather can already be harsh on our skin.
My pick: Sonia Roselli … AGAIN, this line is amazing. The SexAPeel – it can be used all over the body.
3. Invest in a good moisturizer: Cold, dry air can strip moisture from our skin, leaving it feeling tight and uncomfortable. A good moisturizer will help to lock in hydration and protect your skin from the elements. Look for one that is suited to your skin type and contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid or ceramides to help retain moisture.
My pick: Epionce Intensive Nourishing Cream.
4. Don’t forget the sunscreen: Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean the sun’s harmful UV rays aren’t present. In fact, the sun can be even more damaging at high altitudes or when it reflects off of snow. Make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even if you’re just running errands or going to work.
My picks: La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral Tinted Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 or Epionce Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50.
5. Don’t neglect your lips: Cold air and indoor heating can leave our lips feeling dry and chapped. Keep a lip balm or chapstick handy and apply it frequently to help protect and moisturize your lips.
My picks are: Glossier Balm Dot Com in Mint or LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask.
I hope these tips help you take care of your skin during the busy winter months. Remember, taking a few minutes for yourself to prioritize your skincare can make a big difference in how you look and feel.
Wishing you healthy, happy skin!
