Winter Skin Guide

In most cities winter is a time for celebration. But the season air is cold and dry. Don’t accept a dull complexion and scaly legs. Win the battle against dry, winter-weary skin
Moisturize your skin regularly to avoid dry skin, if you use a lightweight moisturizer bump it up to a more intense moisturizer, Find a moisturizer that contains, Glycerin and vitamin E help lock in moisture, and aloe helps to calm and soothe. Apply a generous amount to your face, hands and legs, elbows and knees. Apply a SPF- 30 sunscreen before going outside, it will act like a barrier against harsh elements. Don't forget to apply a SPF- 30 lip balm, chapped lips are one of the most common winter aliments. Avoid licking your lips.

Exfoliating in the winter is very important to get rid of flaky skin, dry skin. You should exfoliate 2-3 a week, you don't want to do it no more then that or else you might wind up breaking down your skin’s natural barrier function and make your dry, flaky skin worse. Don't forget to exfoliate your lips!

My favorite body butter and body exfoliate are:
