A chill is in the air and the holidays are right around the corner, but I still want to keep a healthy glow. It can be hard to remember to switch it up with a season change, but in the winter I really need to! The air is so dry in Wisconsin that I have to completely rethink the way I do my skincare and makeup this time of year. I thought about how I switch it up and came up with 8 winter beauty hacks that I think every person will find useful this season.
Don’t ruin your moisture barrier; be gentle with the skin when cleansing and moisturize! I like to oil cleanse, then use a gentle purifying cleanser to remove any surface debris or impurities. I follow up with an anti-aging serum and a nice moisturizer to keep my skin soft and I’m good to go!
Got dry skin under your eyes? Add a drop of NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting serum or oil to your under eye concealer to keep it from creasing and caking up. I swear by this trick in the winter. I couldn’t wear makeup in the winter without the help of some serious moisture!
Dry, flaky lips are so unattractive. Make a simple lip scrub with sugar and oil to keep your lips looking fresh.
Matte makeup is in the spotlight right now, but if you’re fighting dryness it won’t do any favors for your skin! Swap out your matte foundation for a dewy finish makeup that will flatter dry skin and not cling to dry patches.
Keep lotion by every sink in your house to keep your hands soft and supple. We are always washing hands around here (hello, three kids!) and giving my hands some TLC makes a big difference. You could even put a thick layer of coconut oil on your knuckles before bedtime if that’s a problem area for you.
Become a makeup minimalist. On good skin days, go easy on the foundation and powder, and spot conceal instead. Powder can accentuate flakiness and if your skin is looking great, who needs it?!
Keeping dandruff at bay is important this time of year. Going inside where the heat is and then outside where the cold air is does NO favors for my scalp. I wrote an article about my favorite hair products for a balanced scalp you should read!
Adopt the KISS method for your skincare routine. (Keep it simple, sister!) The older I get the more my skin craves a simple and effective skincare routine. Lately I’ve been reaching for the NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum. When applied in the morning and evening, this serum plumps and firms skin for a more lifted appearance. Now that I’m part of the over 30 crowd, I am fighting the very beginning signs of aging, and I’m seeking results like increased luminosity, even pigmentation, and smooth and soft skin. I also love bring more moisture to my skin so I love that Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient in this formula. I just have to apply 3-5 drops to my face after cleansing in the morning and evening and follow with my moisturizer. My dry skin is also super sensitive and it’s loving how gentle this formula is.
