1. Take Shorter Showers in Lukewarm Water
I love taking hot showers in when it’s cold; however, lingering in a hot shower (or bath) can lead to dry skin. Therefore, limit your time in the shower, and/or lower the temperature.
I love using Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection Lemon Verbena with Olive Oil Bar Soap ($4.99). It’s non-drying, moisturizing, rinses clean and leaves a soft citrus scent.
Exfoliating your skin at least once per week helps slough off dead skin cells, which allow moisture to seep back into the skin.
The Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection Lemon Verbena with Olive Oil Sugar Scrub ($9.99) does a good job at exfoliating without being too rough, which leaves my skin super soft, and the oils in the scrub leave my skin supple and moisturized.
During the winter keeping your skin moisturized truly is the key to having healthy, soft, smooth skin. After your shower or bath, remember to apply some form of moisturizer. I love using body butters during the colder months because of their thickness, and ability to keep the skin soft and supple without the oiliness that some lotions and creams leave. Lately, I’ve been using the Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection Lemon Verbena with Olive Oil Body Butter ($9.99). It goes on smooth, absorbs quickly, and leaves the skin moisturized without being greasy.
