Many people mistakenly think that the most drying time of the year for those living in the desert is summer. As a matter of fact, winter is the most drying season when it comes to skin care. As temperatures drop so does the moisture in our skin. Choosing the right skin care to keep that moisture and natural glow without clogging pores can be tricky but is an important part of winter skin care.The first step is to always make sure you are applying those moisturizing products on exfoliated and damp skin. This allows your products to penetrate and not just sit on top and feel heavy. What do I mean by exfoliate and damp skin?
- Exfoliation should be done by natural and not-so-harsh products. For example, enzymes that come from pineapple or papaya and mild-foaming cleansers. Stay away from harsh scrubs and a lot of chemicals that you can’t pronounce. Don’t over exfoliate – do this 2-3 times a week.
- After washing your face, splashing it with water, and gently patting it with a towel; your skin will still feel a little damp. However, a great way to make sure your skin is ready to absorb all products that you apply you can spritz it with a toner. Toner should not be full of alcohol or chemicals because that will just cause your skin to become more dry. Osmosis carries an amazing pH balanced toner water called “CLEAR” that allows your skin to drink up all the product and absorb in for the maximum benefit.
