Winter Skin Care Tips

It’s a bit chilly this morning here in San Antonio, Texas! Know doubt when temperatures drop, there is less humidity, more wind, we are cranking up the heater, and it’s like the moisture in our skin just vanishes. It’s no fun putting your makeup on dry, flaky skin. It feels rough, looks dull, and doesn’t glow. To help keep that skin nice and soft in this cooler weather, here are some tips for ya. These are the things you’ll need (think of it as your “winter skin” kit):

Winter

Skin brush-You can get these anywhere! Give yourself a nice brushing from the neck down before you shower, this will loosen up the dead skin cells and any flakiness you may have. Give a few more strokes to your knees, elbows, & shoulders. It also increases circulation!
Body scrub-Use this in the shower 2-3x weekly, it’ll keep the dryness from reoccurring.
Moisturizing soap-Body wash, bar soap, what ever you prefer, be sure to switch over to a moisturizing one.
Cream cleanser-For your face, use more of a creamy based cleanser. Foamy cleansers usually have something in it for clarifying the skin that would dry you out even more and make your skin feel very tight.
Lip balm-Don’t forget your lips, they need attention too! Who wants to kiss peeling, flaking lips? I know I don’t! You can even exfoliating them with your toothbrush when you brush your teeth also helps.
Water-Increase your water intake, this will help your skin feel hydrated and of course it’s good for you!
Moisturizer-Lather up your body when it’s still a little dewy after your shower, pores are still open and will drink that moisturizer right up. Don’t forget about knees and elbows either, those can get pretty dry if neglected too.  As for your face, be sure to tone, and then moisturize.
Keep that skin looking fresh and smooth all day! Stay warm!

Cool Temperature Beauty Tips

Cooler temperatures and indoor heating can strip skin and hair of their moisture. As the temperatures drop, some of us may need to modify our makeup and skincare routines. Here are a few tips to help you adjust to the cold weather:

  • Consider a tinted lip balm instead of lipstick. Lipstick can be drying, by using a tinted balm your lips will stay moisturized and still pretty with a bit of color.
  • Switch to a lighter shade of foundation. With less sun your skin will naturally lose some color and your foundation should too. There’s nothing worse than foundation that doesn’t match your skin–it should always look natural with no line of demarcation.
  • Use bronzer but sparingly. Apply on the forehead, across the bridge of the nose, cheeks and chin where the sun would naturally kiss your face. It will warm up your face and give it a nice glow. Hint: bronzer is also available in cream and gel formulas but powder is pretty much fool proof as long as you use a light hand and a big fluffy brush.
  • Change your powder blush to cream. Powder can look cakey, cream blushes look fresher and therefore makes you look younger in my opinion. Dab on bit on apples of the cheeks and blend upward into temples with fingers or a cosmetic sponge. Choose a shade that matches your cheeks after a walk in brisk weather.
  • Don’t over-powder. For those with drier skin, I suggest skipping the powder altogether. Powder can settle into fine lines and highlight wrinkles making you look older. I never powder under my eyes.
  • Exfoliate, exfoliate exfoliate. Slough off dull, dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger fresher looking skin by using a facial scrub or schedule a  microdermabrasion.
  • Switch to a heavier moisturizer. Cold temperatures can suck the moisture right out of your skin. Look for a moisturizer that has hyaluronic acid to help bind moisture to the skin.
  • Get a good body moisturizer. Moisturizers work by trapping water in your skin’s outer layers, so use body creams after showering while your skin is still damp.
  • Tame flyaways by using a smoothing serum. Use only a pea sized amount on damp hair and then blow dry.
  • If you are going out in the wind and extreme cold, you might want to wear waterproof mascara. Eyes sometimes water in the cold and wind.
