Cold, dry air is not our skin's friend. Often we're left with red, dry or itchy skin that keeps us from looking and feeling our best. Follow these 5 skin care tips to maintain healthy skin during the winter months.

1. Routine Cleansing

Cleansing every morning and night helps to keep the skin clean and removes oils, dirt, dead skin cells and anything else that may clog your pores. 

2. Gentle Exfoliation and Moisturizing

Not all exfoliators are made equal. Before committing to one, make sure you do your research based on your skin type. The different skin types are:

  • Sensitive skin may sting or burn after product use

  • Normal skin is clear and not sensitive

  • Dry skin is flaky, itchy or rough

  • Oily skin is shiny and greasy

  • Combination skin is dry in some areas and oily in others

Follow with moisturizer. Exfoliating can be drying to the skin. Apply moisturizer immediately after exfoliating to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

3. Invest in a Humidifier

Keeping the thermostat blasting on high during the winter or taking a scalding hot shower is sure to dry your skin out. Run a humidifier in the rooms you spend the most time in, including your bedroom, to add moisture to the air around you.

4. Drink Water!

Drinking plenty of water not only helps us It does this by helping your digestive system flush out toxins from the body. This, in turn, will improve your complexion for healthy and glowing skin. Struggling to drink more water? Check out these 5 Ways to Increase Your Water Intake.

5. Regular Monthly Facials

Sometimes, despite our greatest efforts, we can't kick problematic dry skin. Adopting an at-home skincare routine is a great first step but when in doubt, turn to a professional to analyze your skin type and skincare needs.
