Even though here in the Bahamas, we're usually blessed with a hot, sunny climate, we have been experiencing some cooler nights and mornings recently. Hopefully this is an indication of the change in our weather... and finally we can have a cold winter.
However, winter weather can be a bit harsh on your skin. Cold air and gushes of wind can result in excessive dryness in your skin. So it is important to keep your skin moisturized!
Here are a few tips to beautiful, smooth, and moist skin:
1) Don't take hot showers or baths!! (I'm Guilty)
Instead opt for a lukewarm shower. How water removes natural oils from your skin, causing dryness.
2) Avoid using soap which can leave the skin dry.
Instead opt for a moisture body wash, which contains up to 10 times more moisturizer than a soap.
3) After a bath or shower, gently pat your skin dry instead of rubbing.
4) Apply a moisturizer (or lotion) to your skin while it is still damp to lock in the water.
5) Drink at least 8 glasses of water to keep your skin and body hydrated throughout the day.
