This entry was posted on February 21, 2012.
Since spring is on its way its time to start prepping your skin and getting it ready for the warm months ahead! If your skin is dry due to the cold climate you are living in, there are ways to take care of it. Get rid of all of the dead skin, by refreshing and replenishing your skin cells. Here's how.
Don't Take Hot Showers & Moisturize Your Skin!
Even though hot showers feel great, try to keep the water warm or cool. Hot water only dries out your skin and sucks the moisture out of it. After you get out of the shower gently pat down your skin with a soft towel and then cover it with moisturizer that's made for a face that suffers from a cold climate.
The same goes for your arms, legs and the rest of your body. Find a hypoallergenic moisturizer that moisturizes your skin and provides it with plenty of moisture. Soothe your skin with a quality moisturizer such as Kiehls or Alba and allow it to feel refreshed. Soft and silky skin is what your goal is and if you take proper care of your skin you'll definitely achieve nourished skin that glows.
Take Care of Chapped Lips
Your lips get chapped and dry during the winter time too. To get rid of the dead skin gently scrub your lips with granulated sugar. Afterwards replenish your lips with an intense lip balm such as Burt's Bees or Blistex. If you search you can even find an overnight lip balm that works all night long to keep your lips moist and soft.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
Finding a scrub to get rid of dead skin is important during the cold months. You can find a facial scrub, foot scrub, and body scrub. Gently exfoliate the dead skin away. Soon you'll be eliminating any dead skin from the dry areas of your body. After exfoliating, cover the affected areas at night with petroleum jelly. You'll wake up with silky smooth skin that's ready for spring time to arrive.
When springtime is here you'll be ready to enjoy the lovely weather without worrying about taking care of your annoying dry skin. Your skin won't be dry! In fact, it will be glowing, revitalized and looking better than ever. So start now with a daily skin care regime and having glowing skin by springtime!
