winterize your beauty routine

Do you switch out your summer clothes when the temperature drops? What about your skin care? You wouldn’t go out in a bathing suit in October, your skin shouldn’t be going out like it's summer too!

Winter is super tough on the skin. The lack of moisture paired with indoor heating can leave your skin completely dehydrated and even itchy. When the seasons change, your skin regime should change too.

  1. HYDRATE

    Between the harsh winter weather and indoor heaters, your skin is constantly being drained of its natural moisture. This happens because your skin has more moisture than the air during this time of year, so the dry air is constantly trying to draw that moisture out. #rude  So it’s super important to replenish moisture and prevent dehydration, as that dehydration can cause flakey skin and makes it more prone to wrinkles.

    • drinking plenty of water

    • use a humidifier 

    Your skin is your largest organ and its cells need hydration to function at full (glowing) capacity. 

  2. HYALURONIC ACID

    Ready to meet your winter best friend? Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the skin. Take that dry air! Not only does it moisturize, it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

    Try Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream

  3. EXFOLIATE

    Just like you pile on clothes (shirt, sweater, jacket, scarf), you want to layer on the hydration. The best time? Apply right after your shower when your skin is still damp.

    Try Dry Brushing

  4. MOISTURE

    Just like you pile on clothes (shirt, sweater, jacket, scarf), you want to layer on the hydration. The best time? Apply right after your shower when your skin is still damp. 

    Try Upstate Elevator Supply Co Botanical + CBD Super Rich Body Creme
     

  5. SERUMS + MASKS

    DIY masks are a fun, affordable way to manage dry skin – plus, they make a great snow day activity!

    Mash ½ an avocado and ½ a ripe banana until they’re smooth and creamy. Spread the mask on yourface and leave for 15 minutes before you rinse with warm water. Your skin will feel creamy and soft for a richer, regenerated look! 

    Try Maya Chia Pure Supercritical Chia Omega-3 Oil

  6. EAT

    Reach for foods full of monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids like fish, nuts, and avocados. These are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes creating the skin’s natural oil barrier, which is critical in keeping the skin hydrated and plump. Citrus fruits and leafy greens, full of vitamin C, should also be incorporated into your diet so your body gets an extra boost in collagen production.

  7. SUNSCREEN

     Put sunscreen on your face and lips – it may look overcast, but UV rays are still sneaking through those clouds!

    Try Coola Face Unscented Matte Tint SPF 30
