Beauty 101: Winterizing your skin

Even in Jacksonville the temperatures dip low enough to make your skin itchy and dry. The combination of having the heater on and cold weather can do a real number on your skin. That's why--even in the south, you have to make sure to winterize your skin.                          

Here are a just few easy ways you can help protect your skin from the damage winter weather can do:


1. After showering and before drying off, slather on a body oil. Baby oil works just fine, but try out a good sesame oil which is rich in potent antioxidants. It'll heal and protect your skin, keeping it soft, supple and smooth while reducing bacteria and   providing essential natural oils that penetrate and nourish your skin. Try an organic product like Youthing Strategies sesame oil.

2. Moisturize as often as you can. It's easy to do in the morning after a shower, but when you're getting ready for bed, it can be a chore just to take off your clothes. All you can think about is getting in to some comfy PJ's and relax...but don't forget to moisturize before going to bed. L'Oreal has great skin care products for your face and body. Designed to protect and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep, L'Oreal's products are a girl's key to saving her skin during the winter months.

3. Drink plenty of water. Yes, I know... we hear it all summer long, but in the winter we need to keep ourselves hydrated and healthy. There's nothing like a good drink of water to help your skin stay supple. Green tea is another good way to help fight the aging process and it tastes so yummy, too! Enjoy a steaming cup in the afternoon. It's a great way to keep warm and lift your spirits as well.

4. Protect your lips. Lip care is vital during the winter months. Burt's Bees offers natural soothing lip care products that repair and protect even the driest of lips. Your lips will be kissable in no time with these environmentally friendly products.
