Winter is a beautiful season. You get to cuddle up in your favourite cosy sweater, drink warm hot chocolate and enjoy snow days, depending on your region. However, the dry chill climate can cause damage to your skin. Winter skincare takes patience and a little more effort due to the elements of colder temperatures. Interested in preventing dry, flaky skin blues? Well, keep reading!
Bye Bye Dry Skin
Raise your hand if you skip exfoliating during your skincare regimen. Don’t worry; this is a judgment-free space. Exfoliating is one of the best ways to remove dead skin cells that cause dry skin. You want to make sure to use an exfoliator that not only clears flaky skin but adds moisture. R&R Luxury’s Shea Sugar Scrub provides a gentle but effective exfoliation for the skin, removing dead skin cells allowing the new and fresh cells to shine. It also helps to brighten tired, dull-looking skin and creates the appearance of smooth, glowing skin.
Where’s Your SPF??
We know you’ve read our blogs countless times where we mentioned using sunscreen. But the information is worth repeating; you need to wear sunscreen all year round. No matter the season, your skin can get sun damage. So before leaving your house, be sure to apply your Black Girl Sunscreen. Your skin will thank you.
Humidifiers to the Rescue
When’s the last time you used a humidifier? Have you ever owned one? We tend to turn the heat up during this season, sometimes to full blast, to keep the cold air out of our homes. However, though it feels good, the indoor heat can cause your skin to feel dry. Invest in a humidifier for your home that will add moisture to the air and your skin.
H2O should always be incorporated into your life, no matter the time of year. Drinking plenty of water helps avoid dryness from the inside out.
