Winter skin essentials

Winter months can trigger many changes in our skin. starting from drying to breakouts from cold. That's exactly why we need to be ultra aware in winter to nourish, hydrate and love our skin. It is not always about fancy skin care routine, it's all about how to love ourselves.
Yes, yes it's true. Water can help us with anything! Maybe, just, because we are made mostly from water. No! Tea, coffee or cider doesn't coun. Just a pure water can help you to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
During other months You can skip one or two days without moisturizing and everything will be ok, but not the winter. Not even a single day! And even this is not enough - you may have found a moisturizer that works just fine in spring and summer, but as weather conditions change, our skincare routine should too. We have to find oil based moisturizer, rather than water based, as the oil creates protective layer on the skin. Most moisturizers that are labeled as Night cream are oil based. But don't be lazy - choose your moisturizing oils with care, look for non clogging oils, like avocado, almond or grapeseed oil.
Keeping a tube of lip balm in a pocket is a must have in a winter, because these winter winds can take chapped lips to a whole new level. If your lips are flaky, give them a gentle exfoliate to remove excess skin. 
No! No, No, no, sunscreen isn't just for summer. Winter sun combinations with snow glare is even worst than a summer sun. Since exposure to UV rays are more culprit of wrinkles, apply sunscreen whenever you are planning to go out. 

And the most important thing - have fun, make a snowman, take walks, skiing is great, and it is never too cold  - it's just wrong clothe choice :)
