We are trying new ideas here on Fairy Godmother and one of the ideas we are considering is Advice from an Expert.
For our debut, I asked my friend Beth who is a cosmetician and owns her own med spa. Yes, home girl has skills. She is also responsible for keeping my almost 40 year old face looking like a hot little boss.
I asked Beth for skin care advice during the Winter months.
It is important to moisturize your face no matter the time of year, but it is imperative during the winter months. If you already have dry skin, you should up the amount of times you apply per day, but the key here is to not skip over your neck and chest.
Keep your skin moisturized: Choose a good, oil-based moisturizer to keep the skin moisturized and soft. Pay special attention to the exposed parts (and the most affected areas) like your hands, nails, feet and lips. Keep them well moisturized at all times. Even those who have oily skin must use light moisturizing lotions after cleansing to keep the skin healthy and helps maintains the pH Balance. It is important to use a mild facial cleanser and wash with lukewarm water, hot water can strip your skin of its essential oils and your skin can become too dry and irritated. Make sure to exfoliate at least 2-3 times per week this will help promote skin cell turnover and also allow for better product penetration.
Use a good sunscreen: People like to enjoy the sun during winters but little do they know that exposure to the sun can harm their skin in winter too. Use a sunscreen of SPF 30 or more and make sure that it contains Zinc. In fact, it should be a part of your daily routine throughout the year. Don’t say goodbye to your sunscreen just because summer is over
Do not lick your lips: Winter is the season of chapped lips and licking them will make them more chapped. Use a good lip balm to keep your lips soft and protected. Lip balm with Vit E works well.
