Sweaters. Boots with fur. Your favorite jeans. For some, it’s their favorite time of the year. For me? Hmmm....not so much! My skin is usually oily but during the cold months, I long to have my oily skin back! Crazy, isn’t it?
Dry skin, cold weather & “winter winds” DO NOT MIX. I’m here to tell you, moisturizers are a MUST during winter months! I cringe when I go outside and it feels like my face is about to crack! By not toning and moisturizing after cleansing, you’re sure to run into this very issue especially if your skin is already dry. You can schedule a consultation to discuss what skin care regimen would be best for you. The skin care lines from Farmasi come highly recommended. https://www.farmasius.com/lacreciasteward2
One of my favorite winter beauty tips is, according to Dr. Deepali Bhardwaj, Skin Care Expert, wait 30 minutes after bathing or washing your face before going out into frigid air. Splash your face with cool water when you come back inside. As it's known that extreme temperature changes can burst capillaries near the skin's surface. Write that down and put it on a sticky note!
Don’t forget your lips....a lip scrub and Vaseline or your favorite lip balm/oil will help keep your lips from cracking which can lead to bleeding!
As far as your makeup goes, keep it simple. Unless your going to a holiday party. Then you can glam it up a bit. Cream foundations are great for the winter and an alternative to liquids. They usually come in a buildable coverage so you don’t look too “cakey.” Make sure your brows are groomed and add a lip gloss after your lip treatment and you’ll be good to go!
