2.) Switch to a oil based moisturizer. During cold, dry weather, moisture is constantly escaping from your skin. It is crucial to use products that are oil based to truly lock in the hydration. Oil based creams work to replenish and heal dry skin while water based creams only give you a temporary fix. We recommend Alavati's Day Cream and Night Cream for your face and Body Repair Cream for anywhere on your body.
3.) Don't forget about your lips! Make sure you keep a deep moisturizing lip balm in your purse and apply the product several times a day. Use Alavati's Lip Serum treatment for a daily boost in moisture and save your dry, cracked, aging lips.
4.) Take shorter baths. As nice as it may be to jump into a nice warm bath on a cold day, the hot water can actually dry out your skin. Cut down on bath time and apply an intensive moisturizer as soon as you hop out.
5.) Use sunscreen! Even though it may be blistering cold outside the sun may still be shining and burning your skin. There is nothing worse for your skin than a sunburn so make sure you stay protected.
6.) Use a mild soap in the shower. Since the weather outside is extra harsh, it is crucial that the soap you use is extra gentle. The soap that you use during the Summer may actually dry your skin out in the Winter. Try to find a soap that contains a small amount of oil.
