Battle Dry Skin with a Few Simple Tricks
This season can take a toll on your skin. Here are a few simple tips and tricks to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and ready for the holiday.
Dry Brushing- This is actually an ancient beauty technique that works wonders on the skin. If you want to get technical dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, increases circulation, and removes dead skin cells, but you can think of it like a workout for your skin. Before getting in the shower take a moment to dry brush your body. Work in the direction of the heart and give each body part a few brisk strokes. It gets the blood flowing so might not be the best before bedtime.
Body Scrub- a body scrub has a sugar or salt base and breaks up the dull build up on your skin revealing soft skin that is prepped for moisture. Begin with wet skin in the shower (warm to hot water is ideal.) Apply the scrub all over in a circular motion.
Water-Drink plenty of water. Caffeinated beverage consumption tends to increase as the
the temperature decreases. As delicious as they are the caffeine can rob your body of moisture.
Moisturize- Apply a good moisturizer when skin is slightly damp and let it soak in. Apply within five minutes of your shower to lock in your skins natural moisture. Shaving removes the surface layer of skin cells and makes for the perfect time to absorb more moisture.
