It's cold and wet but somehow your face is dryer than a 40 degree day at the beach.
Turns out winter is dry too (Australian things). Dry air and cold air mixed with low humidity causes the hydration in the skin to evaporate quicker than normal. This leaves your skin feeling dry, tight and looking very flakey.
How to fix this?
You are going to hate me for this but I promise it will work.
Stop having hot showers and instead have a warm shower.
Yes.. I know! Pour a wine and sit down it doesn't get much better.
Limit your showers to 5-10 minutes.
Well that is the tough news out of the way. If you are still reading and haven't run away, let's get to the easy stuff!
A light gentle exfoliation will help remove dead skin cells and allow the skin to be ready to soak up those good natural oils from a carefully selected skin care product. Keep away from deep and intensive exfoliators while your skin is dry.
Use a thick cream!
Don't be afraid to slap on as much hydrating serums and creams you can! Pea-size? Please I am dry as f**k! Make it a 5-cent coin for now.
