Why does it feel like as soon as you get a summertime skin care routine down it’s already winter and you have to go back to the drawing board? Well, today I say no more! No more dry dull skin. No more lathering on oily products in an attempt to give your face a semblance of life. I have five tips and one excellent product that’s going to change your winter skin care game forever. Here are my winter skin care tips for radiant skin during the dead of winter.
1. Consistency is key!
Your skin needs constant love and attention when it’s cold out. So pick a routine and your favorite products and stick with it. If you have dry skin I would recommend putting your gel cleanser away for a cream or oil based one. These cleansers help you contain more natural moisture which is super important when the temperature drops. After your cleaning routine remember to seal that moisture in with a daily treatment like cult classic and my new fave, the Exuviance Eventing Restorative Complex.
2. Layer, Layer, Layer
Even if you have oily skin, you can not skip out on your moisturizers (yes plural). If you feel like your skin is too oily for a moisturizer, you might be overdoing it with the cleansing and toning. You’ face needs some of that natural oil so you’re moisturizers can really hook it up. During the day, you’re still going to grab that face-friendly sunscreen, your favorite serum, and at night time replenish with something that restores and replenishes wrinkles, dark spots, and texture.
3. Take it Easy With The Makeup
I’m all about the full beat face but please give your pores a shot at survival this winter. Make sure you’re using moisturizers before putting on makeup, add a layer of primer before contouring and highlighting. Use natural coconut oil to remove your make up for effectiveness and smooth hydrating skin.
4. The Humidifier Hack
If you’re looking for the extra push on your journey to beautiful plushy skin you should invest in a humidifier. Turn your humidifier on at night to keep moisture in the air all night long. Adding this lil guy to your nightly routine will help your skin feel soft, dewy, and help the appearance of dark circles.
5. Night Shift
Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex will literally change your skin overnight. This blend is like the holy freakin' grail of night creams. This bionic blend of PHAs, along with botanicals and Vitamins A, C, and E, delivers full-strength anti-aging benefits without drying or irritation, even on the most sensitive skin types. And before you start to say that you are too young for a good night time cream, hear me out. This helps hydrates skin with emollients and Hyaluronic Acid, restoring youthful suppleness and elasticity. Powerful Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gluconolactone targets lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and improves roughness and texture. Lactobionic Acid - a potent antioxidant - helps inhibit wrinkles from forming, plumps and firms the skin, and enhances clarity.
If you’re interested in putting Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex in your winter routine you can purchase it on their website www.exuviance.com.
I honestly couldn’t recommend this product enough. I love using products with Vitamin A, C, E due to the dark spots on my skin, plus it makes my skin feel dolphin smooth. Not to mention that it fits flawlessly in my already established winter routine. At $48 a pop, it is a little pricey, but if you are looking to get serious about skin care this is the investment that your skin truly needs.
