Wintry Skin Defense
I really do love winter. I love how fresh and clean everything feels and also how much the weather makes me want to be super snuggly. The one thing I don't love about this time of year is how the cold, dry weather can really wreak havoc on my skin. I like to protect my entire body with the Eucerin Skin Calming Body Lotion that I apply immediately all over after getting out of the shower. This really helps resist irritation and especially the major itchiness I can feel one the air cools down and the heaters kick on. To keep my face moisturized and happy, I love to cleanse daily with the Cerave Hydrating Cleanser in the shower, followed immediately by the Cerave Moisturizing Cream to add in moisture and rebuild my skins natural barrier. Before bed I always slather on some facial oil, and my favorite affordable pick is without a doubt the Palmer's Skin Therapy oil. This locks in my moisturizing cream and adds an extra level of hydration. The final step before I go to sleep is always to top off my lips with the Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing lip balm. It's so thick and soothing that it is still on my lips when I wake up the next morning and keeps my lips happy and flake-free all day long. Moisturization is super essential to keep my skin happy and healthy all year long, and after years of perfecting my winter skin care, this definitely seems to be what works the best for me.
