Don’t Be a Flake!

Don’t Be a Flake!

When the weather changes so should your skin care routine. Failing to do so can result in dry, even cracked skin that can become itchy and pronounce your fine lines even more. So what are some of the things that can help you avoid dreaded flakes?

  • Humidifier: If your air at home is dry a humidifier is a great way to add moisture.
  • Avoid long hot showers: A long hot shower may seem like a wonderful idea after a stressful day but doing so only dries your skin out and washes away the natural oils in your skin.
  • Moisturize: The best time to moisturize is right after you dry off from your shower. Doing so retains the moisture in your skin.
  • Try natural moisturizers: A couple of tablespoons of olive oil along with two drops of your favorite essential oil like lavender added to your next warm bath will help your skin feel a moisturizing effect.

If you would rather use an over the counter product to moisturize then you might want to try a past Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Its whipped texture is instantly absorbed with no greasy after-feel. This product is suitable for all skin types, especially dry, flakey skin. This hydrating moisturizer leaves your skin feeling smooth, hydrated, and comfortable after just a single use. It’s available for purchase at Sephora or Ulta Beauty for $30.

Remember it doesn’t take much to dry your skin out, so be sure and drink plenty of water throughout the year to maintain your healthy looking glow.
