I know, it’s not technically winter yet. But I am already suffering from the woes of winter skin. I can’t seem to win between the harsh arctic winds, frigid temperatures, and dry indoor heat. Oh yes. Dry, flaky, cracking, chapped, wrinkly-looking skin. Luckily, I have just the perfect remedy. The key aspect to getting our skin back to its soft and glowing nature is to actually exfoliate.
I’m using Visage De Layla Glycolic Cleanser
(derived from natural sugars) to gently exfoliate my dull skin. It contains green leaf & licorice extract which conditions, tones, and brightens the skin. You might think it makes it more dry but it actually helps removes the dead flaky skin, allowing moisturizer to penetrate down deep. But don’t go too crazy with exfoliation, once or twice a week, will do.
Don’t forget to masque up once or twice a week to give your skin a treat. I am currently using a Milk & Honey firming masque. Milk is a great exfoliator since it contains lactic acids which break down dead cells hence softening them for easy removal. Honey is a gentle exfoliator and moisturizer. When combined, milk and honey are highly antibacterial help to cleanse skin deeply.
After cleansing/exfoliating, it’s time to get loved up by coconut oil. I apply a bit of organic virgin coconut oil
as a natural moisturizer. And start to daydream about Koh Samui, Thailand… Eff
, I’m still here?
I also drink a plethora of water and tea. Sometimes I mix a teaspoon turmeric powder to a cup of warm almond milk and drink it for that moisturized glow. I have literally watched my skin turn from dull to well, doll!
Hope you stay warm and glowing my beautiful friends.
