Although it’s 100 degrees right now in sunny southern California, fall and winter (if you call 70 degrees winter) are right around the corner. And while, we don’t have snow or harsh weather of any sorts, there is definite crispness in the air when fall rolls around. A lot of things can affect your skin and weather is one of them!
Here are 4 tips on how to prepare your skin for winter!
1. Switch from lotion to cream. Just as your closet changes for every season, its a good idea to change up your beauty regime. Using a rich, moisturizing creme instead of lotion will help retain the moisture in your skin. By using a cream which is heavier on the skin, it can protect your face against temperature and cold, dry extremes. It your on the oily side you may just want to put a creme on at night. A great one to try is Caudalie Premier Cru La Creme Riche which helps with dryness, loss of elasticity and wrinkle prevention.
2. Take shorter showers! Everyone enjoy a good shower but the truth is taking a hot, long shower really takes a toll on your skin, leaving is really dry. Opt for a lukewarm bath or shower, pat your skin dry and put a moisturizer on. Caudalie makes great shower gets that wont dry your skin out.
3. Don’t forget the sunscreen! Although the sun isn't blaring down on our skin, doesn't mean we shouldn't protect our skin from the sun. Sunscreen should still be worn every singe day. iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50 Plus features a lightweight texture that absorbs quickly into the skin shielding it from the sun's harmful rays with broad-spectrum mineral UV filters, perfect for fall and winter!
4. Don't stress. I know, it seems inevitable, family gathering, Christmas party, buying gifts, binge eating all the desserts. It brings stress out of many people. Try to stay away from the dessert table, or have 1 glass of wine instead of 2. Stress plays a huge role on your complexion and body. Keep hydrated with water and think ZEN!!!
