Even though we can feel that Spring is just around the corner, our skin still needs special care during these drier and colder months. Some suggestions:
1. From WebMD
a. Find an “ointment” moisturizer that is oil-based, rather than water based. The oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion. Many lotions labeled as “night creams” are oil based.
b. Drink water!!!! Drinking water helps your skin to stay young looking.
c. Mint lotions are great for summer months, but in the winter your feet need something stronger. Try to find a lotion that contains petroleum jelly or glycerine. Also use exfoliants to get the dead skin off.
2. From Huffington Post
a. Brush your lips with a toothbrush to get rid of excess skin from chapped lips
b. Have dry patches under your eyes? Try Aquaphor, it is part of the Vaseline family but specifically for those areas
c. Ditch the drugstore makeup remover wipes and use the cold cream cleanser. The towlettes do their job, but the cleanser moisturizes and removes makeup. The towlettes can tend to dry out skin especially in the winter.
