Adjust & Update Daily Beauty Habits
Along with colder, drier air comes needed changes to your skin care routine to give your skin the optimal care it deserves. A crucial piece of information that we all need to understand is that everyone’s skin care routine should be customized to their concerns, and needs. Skin care should never be thought of as a one size fits all routine. With that in mind, there are adjustments that can be used as general benchmark recommendations based on the time of the year. Including additional moisture required in order to have the skin hydration our body needs
Creams and ointments are more hydrating than lotions so it may be as simple as swapping out the bottle of lotion for a jar of a cream of the same product. Depending on your skin type, or body area such as the sensitive skin of the face and eyelids, you may need additional products altogether to restore hydration and add on protective barrier layers.
