Like the sound of nails on a chalkboard, the sensation of dry, scaly skin is excruciating for me to bear. My mother taught in me at an early age the importance of taking care of one’s body, and I continue to do so even more so as the temperature drops and the harsh, bitter winds begin to whip against my flesh.
This winter, I’m going to assist you and your skin out by revealing my tried-and-true body care products. Listed below are a variety of products that will help you construct a soft skin plan that will see you through the upcoming cold days, from mild exfoliators to ultra-moisturizing lotions and luxurious body washes.
FIRST STEP: CLEANSE FACE
Not everyone will be affected by this, but those who have worn makeup that day will. Remove all traces of makeup from your face before beginning your nighttime skincare routine.
Our solid oil is all-natural and easily dissolves even the most long-lasting cosmetic products without damaging your skin.
Second, use a cleaner.
Use a cleanser on your face and massage it in circular motions to open up your pores, exactly like you did first thing in the morning.
THE THIRD STEP IS TO USE A TONER
In the evening, use a cotton pad to apply toner, just as you did in the morning.
FOURTH STEP: APPLY A MASK
There is a wide variety of masks available, but the best one to use is the one that contains an active component that your skin craves.
Even though it’s not required, putting on a mask before bed is a great idea. There are different procedures and instructions for each type of mask.
Your body’s skin is more resilient than your facial skin, so you may afford to exfoliate more frequently without worrying about damaging it. Personally, I use the buffing bar around twice weekly, but you should determine how often you should use it based on your skin’s specific requirements. Apply it to your skin with light, circular motions, paying special attention to any rough spots like your knees and elbows.
If my skin is feeling particularly parched, I’ll add a chemical exfoliator to the routine to help reveal my natural, baby-soft skin. Soft, radiant skin is within your reach with products like Paula’s Choice BHA Body Treatment and Ren Clean Skincare AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum.
