Winter is on its way, and you know what that means—it’s time to switch up your skincare game. With the chilly weather and dry air ahead, your skin might be in for a rough ride. That’s why I’m here to share some bright ideas on how to change your skincare routine for colder weather.
Upgrade Your Moisturizer
As the temperature drops, so does the humidity. This leads to thirsty skin and that dreaded itchy and tight feeling that’s all too familiar in the winter (shudder). Time to swap out your lightweight summer moisturizer for a rich, hydrating one. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides to lock in moisture.
Keep Up With Your Wax Routine
It might be tempting to skip out on a few waxing appointments over the winter since you’re not showing much skin. But that would be a HUGE mistake! (Huge.) When you wax, you’re not just removing unwanted hair; you’re also exfoliating your skin. This leaves you with a smoother canvas that’s ready to soak up all the goodness from your skincare products. Plus, a regular wax routine will keep you in sync with your hair growth cycle (and smoother all year round!).
Don’t Forget Sunscreen
Yes, even in winter, the sun can be a sneaky troublemaker. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from those UV rays, especially if you’re hitting the slopes or spending time outdoors.
Hydrate From the Inside Out
‘Tis the season for PSLs, hot cocoa and tea, but don’t forget to also drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and overall health.
Keep Showers Short and Sweet
Hot, steamy showers can strip your skin of its natural oils. Opt for lukewarm water and limit your shower time to keep your skin from drying out. It also helps to use moisturizing cleansing products (like our CLEAN Body Wash!) instead of a harsh, drying bar soap.
Invest In a Humidifier
Finally, you can combat the dry indoor air by using a humidifier. It adds moisture to your environment and helps prevent your skin from feeling parched.
Basically, the key to keeping your glow in the colder months is hydrating, moisturizing, and protecting your skin from the elements. And don’t forget the secret ingredient—waxing! It’s the ultimate way to reveal radiant skin that shines bright, even on the dreariest of winter days.
