Sweater weather is here! Along with warm cozy nights by the fire and snowman building also comes cold dry air, which can sometimes wreak havoc on your skin. I love the cold weather, but I HATE winter skin. And when it comes to your skin during the winter months, it does need a little more TLC. So today, I am teaming up with Nordstrom to share eight winter skincare tips and things you should be doing to avoid flaky and itchy skin.

Winter Skincare Tips You Need to Know & Try
DO DRINK UP
Don’t forget your H20. Just because it’s not hot outside and you are not sweating, it doesn’t mean you don’t need water. Keep your skin hydrated inside out!
DON’T FORGET SPF
You still need SPF. ALL year-round.
DO READ THE INGREDIENTS
If you have sensitive skin or dry skin, try avoiding skincare items with harsh ingredients. Ceramides and peptides can protect and restore your skin barrier to help retain moisture. Also, if you’re acne-prone, try using water-based creams.
DON’T FORGET TO EXFOLIATE
You don’t want to exfoliate here, but you need to get rid of dead skin build-up. I’ve ditched the body scrubs for good recently. I only use the dry brushing technique, which is excellent for removing dead skin and detoxing your skin by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph drainage. I do this at night, shower, and then apply my night oil.
DO SWITCH MOISTURIZERS
Switch to an oil-based moisturizer for your skin, especially at night time. It’ll help lock in the moisture, and you’ll wake up with soft skin! I recently bought this oil from Necessaire (I love the clean brand). I love that it doesn’t have a scent, so it doe not give me a headache. It’s also formulated with critical antioxidants, vitamins, and Omegas 6, 7 and 9, which help restore, nourish and soften skin.
DON’T TAKE LONG HOT SHOWERS
Speaking of showers, avoid hot long steamy showers. Hot water can dry out your skin!
DO GET A HUMIDIFIER
Try getting a humidifier for your room! Heaters can dry up moisture in the air. Try adding a humidifier in your bedroom while you get that beauty sleep to bring moisture back into the air and help your skin.
DON’T FORGET HYALURONIC SERUM
Try a rich moisturizer + a hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic helps attract and KEEP moisture into your skin if you don’t know. After applying your hyaluronic serum, try a deep moisturizer that will lock everything in. Osea has been a brand I’ve wanted to try for a while now; with such good ratings on both the water cream and serum, I decided this was an excellent time to try. The cream leaves your skin soft and hydrated. But the serum is the winner, winner. Hands down best hyaluronic serum I have tried.
There you have it, friend, those are my tried and true winter skincare tips and what I do on the regular during the cold winter months to keep my skin, soft, smooth, and dewy!
