I don’t know about you, but this time of year is when my skin becomes itchy, dry, and just plain difficult. Despite my best moisturizing efforts, I still wind up with skin that feels dry and tight.
There are a few tricks I’ve learned to help make this season a bit easier on my skin. First of all, as tempted as I may be to take a scorching hot shower, I try to keep the water lukewarm. Secondly, I use a creamy body wash… absolutely love this one. Lastly, exfoliating is absolutely critical. I use my Clarisonic every other day on my face (my skin is really sensitive and can’t handle any more than that) and I use this scrub a few times a week. Both get the job done incredibly well.
Lastly, I rely on a great body cream. Here are a handful of my favorites.
Fresh Seaberry Restorative Body Cream // Caudalie Vine Body Butter // Plain Old Coconut Oil // Burt’s Bees Chapstick (I have one in every purse, one at each desk, one in my nightstand… pretty much everywhere.) // Smith’s Rosebud Salve // Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion // Earth tu Face Skin Stick (new favorite!) // MoroccanOil Intense Hydrating Treatment (a thick, creamy oil – like Vaseline but much fancier.)
