Post holiday exhaustion is here. We're not feeling very vibrant and winter weather doesn't do the skin any favors. Honestly, a lot of us just want to curl up and hibernate until spring.
While January + February might not be one's favorite months of the year, they're the perfect months to get your glow on. In fact, taking the time to give your skin a little TLC can go a long way towards promoting that healthy dewy glow.
Check out these little steps you can take for healthy, glowing skin:
1. Hot water is a big NO. Avoid long, hot, steamy showers and baths. Try taking showers/baths with warm water, lasting no longer than 10 minutes. Use a hydrating cream right after a shower/bath to lock in moisture. Also, avoid taking frequent showers/baths.
2. Once or twice a week...exfoliate to get rid of the dead skin. It is one of THE most important things you can do to quickly get fresher looking skin. Here's an easy way to create your own facial scrub using baking soda. Mix together a paste by combining three parts baking soda with one part water, and then rub onto your face using careful, circular strokes, rinsing afterward with warm water. Hint: this was told to me by a top skin care specialist.
3. Apply serums and moisturizer to damp skin and let it soak it all in. Dampening your skin before you apply your skin care prepares it to absorb whatever product you follow with. Yup, it's true.
4. Sheet masks...we are obsessed! Once or twice a week is a good start. We also love the 5-day sheet mask challenge where you sheet mask once a day for five consecutive days.
5. Hydration is important for good health! While there isn’t a lot of science that’s studied water and anti-aging skin benefits. The takeaway is pretty clear: Drink your water because it’s important for good health. Just don’t expect your crow's feet to disappear.
