Winter is approaching and we start to cover up. That doesn’t mean that we should slacken off with beauty routine. Even though we are wearing longer sleeves and pants our skin still needs pampering. Also, the cool winter air can be very drying not to mention working in airconditioning for 8 or more hours per day.
The most important beauty product to me is Moisturizer, especially as we age. Hopefully you have used a moisturizer as part of your normal beauty routine, however if you haven’t all is not lost. Start now – morning and evening!
Obviously you get what you pay for, however any moisturizer is better than none at all as long as you use it! It’s no good investing in an expensive moisturizer to just look at the pretty packaging.
Also invest in an exfoliating brush or glove and face and body scrub.
For your face, cleanse thoroughly and apply the moisturizer and don’t forget your neck and decolletage. Once or twice a week, use a facial scrub to remove the dead skin cells and then apply a moisturizing mask.
For your body, hop in the shower and use a body scrub to exfoliate (removing dead skin cells). Your skin will feel tingling and alive. After the shower apply the moisturizer while your skin is slightly damp as this helps absorption.
Don’t forget your hands and feet! Exfoliate and then apply hand and foot cream. If you want a real treat apply liberally to hands and feet and wear gloves and socks until the cream has been absorbed. Overnight is best, although perhaps not a good look if you don’t sleep alone!
Continue this routine through winter and you will be showing off glowing skin when the warmer weather arrives.
