When winter’s cold winds whip up, itchy, flaky skin sets in, but the last thing any of us want to do is say goodbye to a smooth, radiant complexion. Adopting a full-body skincare routine may be well worth it in order to avoid any seasonal rough, dry patches. Here, tips for attaining a perfectly hydrated glow from head to toe (and maintaining it all year round).
Keep Things Smooth
The first step to great skin starts in your shower. Swap your traditional body wash with a more hydrating option to encourage moisturized limbs.
Exfoliation is key for avoiding any flaky, itchy areas and keeping your skin buttery soft. Try dry brushing, which is a lymphatic massage that gets your blood circulating while buffing away dead skin. Another option (or addition) is a scrub or body polish that you can massage on in the shower, and wash off afterwards.
This one's obvious: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Chances are you already have a body lotion that you've grown to love, but if it's not getting the job done switch to a more intensive option to repair affected areas.
Lastly, body oil is a great product to impart the illuminating look we all desire. Essential vitamins and minerals infused into different formula can help seal in moisture all day long.
