Everyone wants beautiful winter skin. But nourished, silky smooth skin in the dry months needs a little extra pampering. Colder weather brings dryness, dryness and more dryness that can make skin dull, flaky and lusterless. Moisturizing is obviously an important skin care routine to follow but there are some other things you can do to keep your skin happy and dewy all winter.
1. Switch to a heavier moisturizer
The moisturizer you’ve been slathering on isn’t sufficient for the winter. Switch to an oil-based moisturizer to keep dryness at bay. Oil-based moisturizers form a protective layer on the skin and lockin moisture. Look for humectants (ingredients that attract moisture) like glycerine and alpha-hydroxy acids in cold weather moisturizers. Most night creams are oil-based. Apply a moisturizer two to three times day on damp skin for best results.
