Save Your Skin: 6 Effective Winter Skin Care Tips

12th Dec 2015 / By Guest Contributor

The Fall and Winter seasons can be a very exciting time, the leaves change color, the wind feels refreshing and brisk, the holidays are coming soon and we get to access the Winter clothes that have been patiently waiting for wear all Summer long. 

With so much going on, it’s easy to overlook the need to change up our beauty routine, but the needs of skin change and we must adjust in order to give skin the care it needs. Check out our must-have routine for best winter skin:

Winter Skin Care Tips:

  1. SPF Everyday  This is a no-brainer and a must-do for everyday of every season of the year. Be sure to choose broad-spectrum coverage. Choose a daily moisturizer with SPF. If your foundation or BB/CC Creams also offer an SPF, even better – layer it on!
  2. Hydrating Mists – These water mists boast many benefits far beyond the refreshing and cooling effects you instantly feel. They provide extra hydration to the skin, you can hydrate and sooth skin throughout the day – even when you’re wearing makeup! Using a water mist in your cleansing routine prior to applying your moisturizer will help prepare skin for product absorption to make the most of your products.
  3. Don’t Fear Oil – Oils, like the popular argan oil, can be greatly beneficial to the skin. They provide soothing moisture and help to repair dry and damaged areas. Try mixing a couple drops with your regular moisturizers in order to add some “oomph” to your regular products.
  4. Drink Water – There is no replacement product for getting your 8 glasses of daily hydration. Your skin and body will thank you for it!
  5. Use a Sheet Mask – This new beauty trend takes only 15 minutes of your time and the rewards and benefits are unmatched! When you put on a sheet mask, you’re allowing your skin to get as moisturized as it possibly can get. Remember, just because your skin isn’t dry and flaky – does not mean that it’s not dehydrated. Replenish skin with sheet mask hydration!
    • Flora•py Beauty offers a unique hydrating sheet mask enhanced with powerful flower ingredients and aromatherapies. The flowers and essential oil ingredients care for skin while the aromatherapy benefits help with relaxation and mind/body balance. By wearing the sheet mask for 10-15 minutes, your skin will soak up all the beneficial hydration while you breath in the aromatherapy benefits to help renew the skin and the senses. Unlike traditional sheet masks, Flora•py masks are made from 100% coconut. This special material is able to hold 5x’s its own weight in water, meaning loads of yummy hydration for your skin. I recommend using a sheet mask at least one time per week in order to keep skin hydrated. But, if you’ve been exposed to harsh environmental conditions, travel, or just extra stress – you should use 3x’s or more per week.
  6. Exfoliate – Make sure to add exfoliating to your routine weekly. Whether using a sugar scrub or an electronic scrub brush, both will help make sure dead skin cells are sloughed off, so healthy renewed cells can emerge.

Your winter routine doesn’t stop at skincare – explore some changes in your color routine as well. Just like your wardrobe, feel free to layer on a little more color than you would wear in the summer months. Exchange your bronzer for blush and opt for a matte lipstick, for long-wear and wind proof lips.
