1. Cleanse your skin every night before you go to bed or while you’re in the shower to wash away the impurities. Cleansing your skin helps to remove the dirt, oil, dead skin cells, bacteria and even your make-up.
2. Follow up with a moisturizer. Moisturizers are good for keeping the skin hydrated and can even serve as a primer if you typically wear makeup such as foundation. Moisturizers can work just as good as a primer and save you money. I always like to buy a facial moisturizer with an SPF skin protectant; this protects your face from the sun. My personal favorite moisturizers include Olay and Neutrogena. Those are my go to’s.
3. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. I know in the winter months we love our hot drinks such as hot Coco, Coffee, and Tea. I can admit I love them as well but we need to drink lots of water in between to keep our bodies hydrated. Hydrated bodies help to achieve good looking and clean skin.
4. Avoid using Saunas and hot water when showering. Use lukewarm water. Hot water may strip away the moisture from your skin.
5. Use a humidifier in your house during the winter months. A humidifier will add moisture to the air to keep your skin from drying out. If you’re a person that keeps your heater on indoors during the cold season, the humidifier will add the moisture back into the room and keep your skin from peeling and drying out.
