Winter Skin Guide

Well, it is the middle of winter and my skin is drastically dry. And if you have ever had to deal with dry cracked hands before, then you know how annoying it can be.Β It is never fun to have dry, itchy skin during any season, but it always seems to be the worst during winter.

I have come up with a super easy and effective solution to all of your dry skin woes. All you need is two (or as many as you would like) products to reach soft and silky skin.

Step 1: Exfoliate. Exfoliating is the key to banishing dead skin cells. The more dead skin cells that lie on the skin, the drier the skin can get. The dead skin cells can build up and cause some damage and reek havoc on your skin. So, exfoliating is important in helping the lotion sink in and work its magic. So, choose a exfoliator that isn’t too abrasive or scrubby.

I only have one shown, but I am going to mention some of my favorites: Let The Good Times Roll ($12), Japanese Cherry Blossom Golden Sugar Scrub ($16.50), St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub ($3.24), Burt’s Bees Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub ($12.99), and The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub ($20).

Step 2: Moisturize. Once you have exfoliated your skin, then you need to restore the moisture that was just stripped away. There are so many different lotions and body butters out there to try, so test some out and see which ones you like. Moisturizing is super important especially during winter. Moisturizing your skin is often forgotten because it isn’t something we do daily. But, it is important to do it every day during the winter to keep your skin in line.

My favorite lotions and body butters are: Victoria’s Secret Sheer Love Hydrating Body Lotion ($14), Frosted Cranberry Body Butter ($6), Wild Argan Oil Body Butter ($6), Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion ($12.50), and Paris Amour Body Lotion ($12.50).

Now you can combat dry and cracked skin easily. What do you do to combat dry skin? What are your favorite exfoliators and lotions? Have any blog post suggestions or want to do a guest post on my blog? Check out the Come Find Me page for many ways to get a hold of me.

Have a fantastic day! #StayBeautiful #Don’tEverGiveUp

    • I would go with a good eye moisturizer. Two good ones are the Clinique All About Eyes and the Origins A Perfect World For Eyes Firming Moisture Treatment With White Tea. Both are a little expensive, but they both work great.
