As you start switching out your strappy sandals for warmer boots, you may also need to think about switching up your skincare to reflect the changing seasons. In general, the winter air is drier which may lead to chapped and cracked skin. When applying foundation or other makeup, this means there's an uneven and unflattering base.
Since the secret to perfect makeup is healthy skin, here are some tips to transition you skincare to winter weather:
1. Switch to a cream or oil based cleanser
Harsh cleansers will strip your face of its naturals oils to keep your skin healthy and moisturized. Cream or oil based cleansers are more gentle on the skin and designed to lock moisture in.
2. Incorporate serums into your routine
Serums are generally thinner in consistency but don't let that fool you! They're extremely potent and really pack a punch. Look for ingredients specifically aimed to help and repair dry skin. Apply before moisturizer for the best results.
3. Get a humidifier
Humidifiers are lifesavers in the winter time. Maintain moisture in the air to keep your skin supple and happy. Drinking an extra glass or two of water won't hurt either!
4. Wear lip balm
Your lips need protection too! Avoid chapped and dry lips by reapplying lip balm throughout the day.
Make these small changes in your winter skincare routine and your skin will thank you — especially on those bitterly cold days!
