 The cold winds have gotten stronger and as we layer to keep our bodies warm, keeping your skin hydrated is important too! Here are my top tips and tricks to not have your skin looking dry and flaky:

  1. Even though it’s chilly outside, do not wash your face with hot water. Lukewarm or cold water is best as hot water can dry up the skin even more.
  2. Use rose water instead of your usual toner during winter. Most toners have drying up agents that tighten the skin and can cause irritation.
  3. Use a good amount of moisturizer on your face. I personally love Eucerin DermoPurifier. Wait 10- 15 minutes before you prime your face for makeup.
  4. At night, remove eye makeup with Vaseline or moisturizing baby wipes before washing your face.
  5. Pat dry your face and have a good bedtime skincare routine. I love massaging my face with Keihl’s Midnight Recovery serum for a good 3-4 minutes to ensure blood circulation. If you have, use a face massager to depress the oils.
  6. If you have dry or flaky skin in any areas of your face, use a soft, dry face brush and very gently, apply circular brushing motion and then apply Vaseline on the affected area twice a day for 15 minutes. This does not apply to sensitive areas such as under-eyes.
  7. And as always, Keep drinking lots of water!
