Winter-Ready Skin

4 Tips for Healthy, Glowing Skin

By Lindsay Rutland

Since we live in such a dry climate, I find it important to switch up my skincare routine as soon as the temperatures drop. My skin always feels like it needs extra moisture and attention during the winter months. Over the years, I’ve made a few simple changes each winter that seem to make a huge difference in the texture and appearance of my skin.

1. Cleanse/remove makeup with a cleansing balm or oil, followed by a cream-based moisturizing cleanser. I love the cleansing milk from Dr. Hauschka!

2. Incorporate a facial oil in addition to a daytime and nighttime moisturizer. One of my favorite facial oils is by a local company, Dryland Wilds. I apply 2-3 drops to the skin each night. I love following it up by using a jade roller for extra pampering.

3. If you struggle with dry lips, try using a lip scrub 1-2 times per week followed by your favorite lip balm.

4. Finally, make sure you’re drinking enough water! Skincare products always seem to be more effective when you’re staying hydrated.
