Winter is coming…

Always around this time of year, we switch out our summer wardrobe for our fall one, so why not do the same for your skin?

We all know that during winter the air gets drier, and cranking up the heat indoors only adds to it. The dry air really pulls out the moisture from your skin, so it’s important that you have a good go-to moisturizer on the thicker side to help your skin retain water.

Sarah Howard, creator of swears this Weleda cream is as good as La Mer, but only for a fraction of the price.

It’s also recommended that you don’t over-wash your face in the winter. Definitely get all the makeup and dirt off from the day, but you shouldn’t be reaching for those harsh face washes with ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, they’ll only dry out your skin even more. If you need to use those kinds of face washes for acne, try to only use them at night and make sure you use a good moisturizer to keep your skin balanced.

According to the insta-famous dermatologist, Dr. Shereen Idriss, you really only need to wash your face with a cleanser at night. In the morning it’s best to just splash some water on your face, otherwise, you will strip your skin of good oils, making it drier.

Lastly, try investing in a good hydrating serum that will give you a beautiful glow all day. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, dimethicone, or glycerin. The Ordinary has great affordable options, or try this new serum by glossier, which gives you a dewy, hydrated glow for a whole 12 hours. in all, stay warm and stay hydrated!
