I enjoy colder weather because I don’t get super sweaty to the point where my makeup melts off my face, and my hair looks great all the time because there’s hardly any humidity. It’s also a good time for awesome winter-inspired dates and always gives you a reason to snuggle up to your crush.
Even though winter is fabulous, it can wreak havoc on your skin and hair. And usually, the damage is already done before you realize it. One of my biggest beauty tips is always to start preparing for the next season before it actually arrives.
You need to start prepping your skin and hair now so that when it gets really cold, you don’t have to work to reverse any problems that pop up. Click through to find out how you can start preparing for winter!
Moisturize Your Lips
Once your lips get chapped, it can take a while to get them back to normal. Start regularly applying lip balm now to make sure your lips are nice and hydrated. Use Aquaphor at night to lock in the moisture.
Hydrate Your Hair
Grab a hydrating shampoo and always use conditioner. I definitely recommend using a hydrating hair mask once a week.
Don't Take Super Hot Showers
I know it feels amazing to take a steaming hot shower when it's freezing outside. But this will seriously dry out your skin and undo all that work you did hydrating it! Opt for warm showers instead.
Moisturize Every Single Day
You should always be using a moisturizer on your face, but especially in the winter time! When it gets cold, I usually start using a thicker face moisturizer to make sure my skin doesn't get too dry.
Exfoliate your face and your body 2-3 times a week. When your skin gets dry, you need to slough off those dead skin flakes (ew!) to keep your skin nice and smooth.
Apply Lotion Right Out Of The Shower
This is something I do every day, no matter what the season. Apply your lotion right after you towel off. Your skin is still retaining some of that moisture so your lotion will do a much better job of hydrating your skin.
Don't Forget Sunscreen
Just because it's not as sunny in the winter doesn't mean you can skip the sunscreen. Make sure you're still using at least SPF 15 on your face every day.
Take Care Of Your Feet
Oh boy, your feet will not be happy in the winter when you're constantly wearing socks and boots. Keep them soft by applying a foot lotion and socks before bed. Works like a charm!
