Colder weather in these winter months calls for some extra TLC for your skin! Dry, flaky, irritated skin is not fun to deal with, especially while dealing with low temperatures as well. To solve all of our winter skin problems, we have found some effective and inexpensive ways to give your skin the attention it deserves!
Use thicker and heavier creams and moisturizers
Unlike ordinary lotions, creams and moisturizers include more oil than water, and are more hydrating than lotions alone. Moisturizing your skin in the cold winter months is a great way to get that hydration and glow back! Try brands such as Aveeno and Olay to get that glowing skin back without breaking the bank.
Coconut oil and Argan oil
Coconut oil is essentially the solution to all of life’s problems (not really—but we can pretend). In addition to repairing split ends and damaged hair, coconut oil is great for your skin as well! If your skin stays oily in the winter months, try a lighter oil, such as Argan oil. You can apply the oil directly to your skin or mix it with your regular daily moisturizer!
Hydrating Skin Mask to Wear Before Bed
After a long day, nothing is more rewarding for your skin than treating it to a deep moisturizing and hydrating mask. It is recommended to wear a mask shortly before going to bed, as your skin works throughout the night exfoliating itself.
Exfoliating is a great way to remove dry and flaky skin! Try to use circular motions rather than a back-and-forth motion while exfoliating to reduce harsh movements on your skin, which could lead to further irritation.
