Once the cold weather hits, we’re left with dry skin for days. And with the seasonal change, we need to amp up our beauty routine to keep skin hydrated all winter long.
It takes more than just applying extra lotion though. From locking in moisture right after you get out of the shower to using a Korean face peel, these slight changes in your skin care routine will make all the difference! Follow our dry skin hacks below so you can effectively tackle your dry skin woes.
Removing dead skin cells is the first step to keeping your skin soft and refreshed this winter. Say goodbye to flakiness when you use the O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face (featured in the FabFitFun Winter Box). The peel is non-abrasive and immediately reveals softer, smoother, and more radiant skin with one application.
Don’t Forget Your Lips
Chapped, cracked lips are no fun as they can especially get like this in the winter. Take extra precaution to keep your pout moisturized by using a super nourishing balm (like the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask) before bed to treat them overnight. Also, keep a balm in your bag to make sure you can moisturize whenever you need it!
Choose Moisturizing Makeup
Applying makeup to dry, patchy skin is not a pleasant experience. After using the O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face, opt for tinted moisturizers (like the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream) to ensure your makeup is packed with hydrating power.
Opt for More Moisture
Body butters and creams keep your skin more hydrated than regular lotions do. This Body Cream from Anderson Lilley is available in the FabFitFun Winter Box and is loaded with nourishing ingredients. It’s infused with shea butter, safflower seed oil, and aloe vera to keep your skin supple.
Invest in a Humidifier
Sleeping with a humidifier can make the whole concept of “beauty sleep” a reality. Seriously, how could you say no to a product that works to keep your skin hydrated while you get some shut eye?
Shower in Luke Warm Water
Showering in not-so-hot water can be a great way to prevent getting too dry. Besides, it may help jolt you awake in the mornings, too, so it’s a win-win situation all the way around.
Moisturizing right after you get out of the shower is a key step in locking in moisture. We recommend using Mullein & Sparrow French Lavender Body Oil (which was in the FabFitFun Fall Box) all over post-shower. It’s hydrating, regenerative, and rich in antioxidants with ingredients like sunflower oil and vitamin E.
