Keep your glow well into winter with 5 switches
Moisturize Your Face
Because it's less humid in the winter than in warmer months, skin dries out much faster. Switch to an oil-based moisturizer, with ingredients like shea butter, squalene and lanolin. Apply twice a day—morning and night—but if you notice dry, scaly patches, increase it to three times a day.
Slather On Sunscreen
Though it's cloudy outside, the sun's rays are just as damaging in the winter as they are during the warmer months, so continue wearing sunscreen daily. And don't stop with your face—apply to often overlooked spots, including your neck, the top of your ears and backs of your hands.
Try a Bath Oil
Sure, soaking in a bath at the end of the day is relaxing, but it can quickly dry out your skin. To make sure that doesn't happen, add a few drops of essential oil—lavender works well—to running water. It smells great, but most importantly, helps keep skin soft throughout the season.
Use a Gentle Body Wash
Since your skin may suffer from dryness in the fall, avoid harsh cleansers that strip away essential nutrients, and opt for soothing, gentle cleanser like Dove Body Wash. The mild, creamy, cleanser features 100% natural moisturizers that absorb completely and nourish deep down.Learn More: Dove Body Wash
