Lets face it, winter is here and it’s probably going to stick around for a little bit longer.
So while some of you are enjoying beautiful 70 degree days ( hi Texas!) the rest of us here in Nebraska, are not…
With that, one of the things I love about these colder months, is getting to try new skincare products that go with the season.
I don’t know about you, but I love to change up my skincare products and routines, as the weather changes.
Different seasons bring different skin concerns and having the right products on hand is key!
For winter, its all about hydration, hydration, hydration for the skin.
I’m over the fact that I’ll be a nice shade of pale for a while, but I will not let dry flaky skin ruin the rest of my winter days!
This year, I discovered three AWESOME products that have pretty much changed the game for me when it comes to my skin.
Now usually, I tend to lean more towards natural based products, but these game changers are so perfect that until I find an alternative, I’m sticking to these!
First, I’ve been using Olay Ultra Moisture Winter Collection body wash in Cinnamon Spice.
Not only does it smell amazing, but it literally does what it says, it ultra moisturizes the skin.
With a creamy feel and smooth application, it’s probably one of the best body washes I’ve ever used… and I’ve used ALOT!
It comes in a larger size bottle too, which is just perfect to last you all through winter and then some!
My shower routine continues with a product I don’t think I will ever go without now…
Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion.
Yes, you read that right, in shower body lotion!
It’s seriously the best thing ever.
Now, I am all about moisturizing the skin once stepping out of the shower, but lets be honest, in the winter you just want to get out of the shower and get dressed right away because hello, you’re freezing!
It’s the best ‘lazy girl’s’ body lotion and it keeps your skin quenched all day long.
The trick is to use it just right before stepping out of the shower.
Lets not forget about our face!
This is the one product I’ve been using that is 100% natural and literally contains one ingredient, coconut oil.
Shea Moisture 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
You’ve probably all heard of coconut oil being used for just about EVERYTHING and your skin is no exception.
I’ve used coconut oil for years to cook with and within the last year or so, I started incorporating it into my skincare routine.
Whats great about this brand, is it comes in a nice “face care” sized jar and fits perfectly in the bathroom cabinet or even your purse to go!
I use it more at night then daytime, but that doesn’t mean you can’t and I have definitely been using it on my dry winter hands!
Now, it can be a bit more oily then your standard moisturizer, but one thing I’ve been doing is actually adding the coconut oil to my regular night time face cream and applying it that way.
We would love to know what your winter skin go-to’s are and let us know if you have tried any of these products!
Remember to b.you and keep your skin healthy and beautiful all winter long!
