The winter weather can take a toll on your skin. Get your skin ready for strapless dresses and sandals with these beauty tips to replenish and rejuvenate your skin.
The dry air in your house and the cold air outdoors leaves you skin flaky and dull. Start by exfoliating your skin from head to toe to scrub away those dead skin cells. Buy two scrubs — one that is gentle enough to use on your face and another that is strong enough for the rest of your body.
Replenish and nourish dry skin with by moisturizing morning and night. Use your morning moisturizer right after you step out of the shower, before you dry off — to help seal in the moisturizer. If your skin is exceptionally dry, use a rich cream — such as body butter. When moisturizing your face, pay special attention to the areas around your eyes and mouth, which are prone to wrinkles and dryness.
If you are feeling a little pale, get your glow on with bronzer or self-tanner. Just don’t overdo it — you want the sunny glow to look natural. When using bronzer to your face, apply it in the places that the sun hits first — nose, cheeks and chin — not allover you entire face.
