Luckily, it coincides with New Year resolutions, which are so often about feeling, looking and doing better, so I generally take action before it gets too bad! When the weather gets cold and dry in New England, from our house’s wicked combination of oil heat and a pellet stove, I need extra TLC for my skin. I’ve found that facial masks and a good moisturizer are key.
The cold and dry air of winter can be extremely harsh on skin, and my skin tends to be a lot more sensitive. Winter is hard enough for me as is, as a former San Francisco dweller, and sometimes the chapped lips, dehydrated skin and raw hands make it even more unbearable. A little TLC goes a long way. Here are my favorite simple, affordable Winter Survival Beauty Tips:
1. Do you feel your face is overly dry in the winter? Dehydrated skin cells turn over slowly, and that causes a buildup of dead skin. Lovely, right? Drink your daily requirement of water. I know I say it a lot, but even I forget to do this often.
2. Do you have fly-away hair, or an itchy scalp? Try a moisture-boosting shampoo, or one that focuses on scalp issues. And don’t forget the conditioner! It seals in moisture. I have very long hair and it needs extra love in winter.
3. Is your skin too raw and red? Skip the long and hot showers! A nourishing bath does wonders for the skin instead.
4. Does your face feel dull and less bright than usual? Here is where I make my favorite facial mask!
1 tablespoon of organic or raw (or both) honey
1 tablespoon of plain whole milk yogurt (the higher in fat, the more moisturizing)
Here’s what you’ll do:
Mash the avocado in a small bowl.
Add honey and yogurt and blend until smooth(ish). Mine is often still lumpy.
Add lemon juice
Wash your face thoroughly and then spread a thick layer onto clean skin.
Let mask sit for 10-15 minutes and then remove with a warm wash cloth.
Repeat 2-3 times a week!
Follow up with your favorite moisturizer…
5. Follow up with that moisturizer! My winter beauty routine is never complete without the help of Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer. I buy it in all three kinds – Green Tea Oil, Coconut Oil and Monoi Oil. It absorbs two times faster for soft skin that lasts 24 hours! There’s no need to rinse it and it instantly locks moisture on wet skin. I love that my wet skin moisturizer saves me time in the morning. You can apply it to wet skin, and there’s no need to rinse it off.
