From the blistering wind to the chilly rain, winter can take a toll on your skin. There are many easy steps you can take to make sure your skin is in tip-top shape. We’re here to help! With these quick tips and a list of products we love, you’ll be on our way to having healthy, hydrated winter skin.
Try a Face Mask
Different types of facemasks have different purposes. Brands like Yes to, Pacifica and Alba are a few of our favorites. Some are used for acne, exfoliation, soothing or hydration. This winter, hydrating and soothing formulas will be key to keeping your skin healthy. One of our favorites right now is Disobey Time Rose & Peptide mask from Pacifica! It has skin loving benefits and gives you a moisturizing boost to get you through your day.
Moisturize your body from the inside out. Staying hydrated helps your body flush out harmful toxins that can affect your skin’s appearance. For most of us, that means drinking 8 or more cups of water throughout the day. Have trouble staying on top of your water intake? Keeping a bottle of water handy will help remind you to take sips throughout the day. Or, consider adding just a bit of flavoring to your water to excite your taste buds and encourage you to sip more often.
Moisturize Morning and Night
Take steps in the morning and at night to moisturize your skin. Looking to try a new product? Alaffia Skincare and Hey Honey are two woman-owned brands that moisturize your skin AND support great causes. Alaffia, an Olympia-based skincare company, uses its proceeds to support African-based empowerment projects in the areas of maternal health and education. Hey Honey is one of our new prestige skincare lines. They’re not only titans in the skincare world, they also have a passion project focused on assisting battered women and children.
Get Some Sleep- Seriously.
Just like drinking water, this is an everyday task that many often push to the back burner. We understand life gets busy and there is always another thing on the to-do list. However, letting your body recharge is a radical act of kindness, especially for your skin’s health.
