Luckily, with these tips you will be able to fight the dry winter skin and emerge with a glow!
Change Your Skin Care Routine
Winter is the perfect time to switch to a gentle cleanser that will add moisture back into the skin. Avoid cleanser with ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulfate which can be drying. Use a cleanser with vitamin-C which will help with brightening. It’s also important to be exfoliating during the winter months.
Turn On The Humidifier
The indoor heater and dry air strips our skin of it’s natural moisture. Using a humidifier in the home will help your skin maintain it’s moisture.
Avoid Long Hot Baths & Showers
