Winter Skincare

winter skincare

If your skin is anything like mine, it mercilessly flakes during the winter months. I'm talking constant flakey nastiness, even when I take extra pains to moisturize it. I have been vigilant about it this year, however, and have pretty much eradicated the dry skin from my face. Here's what I've been doing:

* Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream. This is major TLC for dry, parched skin and it has the loveliest scent! If you're not a fan of rose, check out their other scent options. This cream can make you a bit greasy, so be sure to use a small amount. I've been slathering this on to keep my skin moist.

* Omega 3 supplements. I take these twice a day. I feel like I'm lubricating myself from the inside out when I take them, and they're also great for brain and heart health.

* Neocell Collagen supplements. These may not help so much with moisture, but they keep your skin looking smooth and fabulous!

* Phytoceramide supplements. These are nourishing to the skin.

* Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar in hot water. I feel like the honey lubricates from the inside out, much like the Omega 3 supplements, and works as an internal remedy for all-around health and vibrancy. The ACV is just miraculous for a host of concerns or ailments.

* Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater. This doesn't have a completely natural list of ingredients, but I find it does help to moisturize my skin. Especially when my skin is on the dry side and my makeup emphasizes this fact. I like to spray this over my face after applying foundation.
