Skin Survival 101: Winter Edition


1. Buff away dry winter skin

Buff away your dry winter skin and reveal a glowing complexion with a luxe body scrub. I look for a combination of sloughers (exfoliating granules) and softeners (natural oils) to leave my skin soft and hydrated. Something like AHAVA's Softening Butter Salt Scrub($25) is the perfect solution.

2. Seal in moisture

Once out of the shower, seal in moisture from head to toe. On my face, I like to amp up the hydration with the addition of glycerin and hyaluronic acid, while I opt for something lightweight and easy to apply from the neck down.

3. Ease up on cleanser

Colder weather means that it's time to lighten up your cleanser, because over cleansing can strip and irritate skin. I love Trish McEvoy's Gentle Cleansing Wash because it's creamy and soap-free. It's safe enough to be used on my eye area and easily rids my face of the day's makeup, without scrubbing.

4. Use non-drying products

If you use a facial serum or toner, make sure that it's extra gentle and nondrying. Skin tends to lose moisture in the winter, which can result in rebound oil production and more breakouts than usual.

5. Double down on hydration

If you find your skin to be extra dry, invest in a hydrating facial mask that doesn't need to be washed off and can be worn overnight.

6. Protect your hands and nails

Probably the most exposed to the elements, your hands and nails need extra protection this time of year. When it comes to a hand cream, the richer the better and a sweet scent doesn't hurt. Perlier's White Almond Hand Cream ($15), which sinks right in and soothes on contact.

I think a couldn't have said this better myself and thank you to the lovely people from the blog at HSN for contacting me to feature their post on my blog! They have some great tips over on their blog and I would love for you to go check them out!
