Each winter my skin, hair, and nails become more fragile as a result of dry winter air. To combat this dryness, and make my skin much more comfortable, I use body and facial oils.
The Brightening Facial Oil from Beautycounter here is my favorite to massage into my face and neck. It is the first thing I do in my morning routine. It smells delightful and soothes and softens my skin immediately.
The Body Oil in Citrus Rosemary here used after the shower and followed by or blended with body lotion makes my skin feel and look so much better.
Hydrate your body by using a humidifier. Heating systems tend to remove all the moisture from the air and our bodies. It is easy to become dehydrated in the winter.
More tips to avoid that dry flaking skin include following your bath or shower with the oil and lotion combo above, which helps to seal the moisture into the skin. Leave the bathroom door open to let the steam into the other rooms. Grow plants indoors. Plants give off moisture into the air. Eat fresh vegetables and fruits that contain lots of water and sip filtered water all day. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and salty, processed foods which can rob your body of much-needed moisture.
