It's Winter time! That means lots of cuddles, hot chocolate, and nights in. But, the cold weather also dries out the skin quickly- making it look dry and flaky. If you don't take care of your skin during winter properly, it can lead to itchiness and irritation. But don't worry, we got you covered! Here are skincare hacks that can help you have healthier skin during winter!
Skincare Hack #1: Exfoliate your skin
Do you notice that your skin gets flaky during winter? These flakes are dead skin cells that need to be removed. This happens because low humidity levels during winter dry out the skin easily, and dead skin tends to build up on the surface. Make sure to exfoliate your body, face, and even your lips at once a week.
You can use the CheekyGlo Exfoliating Glove for your body and the CheekyGlo Silk Mitt for your face. Both tools help you massage away the excess dry, flaky skin so that you can reveal softer, smoother skin underneath.
All you need to do is soak your skin in warm water for at least five minutes, and you’re ready to scrub!
Skincare Hack #2: Use humidifier at home
To keep the skin hydrated this winter season, it is best to place a humidifier on areas at home where you spend most of your time like your bedroom and living room. Using humidifiers can help make the air in your home less dry, and prevent you from having dry, cracked skin.
Skincare Hack #3: Regularly hydrate with body oil
Whenever you wash your skin, use a body oil to keep it soft and hydrated. This is beacuse hot water strips the skin of it's natural oils, leaving it dry. Our CheekyGlo Body Oil is ultra-hydrating that leaves your skin glowing and plump in seconds! This is a great way to combat the dryness of the skin during this season.
Skincare Hack #4: Limit your shower time
Hot water can strip off the natural moisture of your skin so you shouldn’t be staying in the shower for a long time. Limit your shower time to about 5 to 10 minutes, just enough to remove the dirt on your body. Also, instead of using hot water, use lukewarm water as hot water can dry out the skin easily.
