Tips & Tricks Tuesdays: Combat Winter Dryness

It's no secret that once the winter months come, so comes dry skin. Unfortunately the cold, dry winter air is no friend to our skin, sucking out any bit of moisture that we would naturally produce. No problem. We just have to treat our skin to a little extra TLC for a few months.

First off, always moisturize your skin fresh out of the shower. Your pores are open and able to absorb as much moisture as possible, as opposed to just sitting on top of your skin. Also, ditch the regular body lotion and upgrade to a body butter or cream for a while. Drier skin is going to need extra help and these thicker formulas usually get the job done. If your skin is still unresponsive, add a bit of your favorite oil to your body cream when you apply it. Adding a few drops to the palm of your hand with your body cream can really make a world of difference and keep your skin as soft as the sweater you'll be bundled up in.
