Dry, heated indoor temperatures and cold outdoor air can wreak havoc on your skin. Add in rigorous hand washing and antibacterial cleansers (it is flu season after all) and you’ve got yourself a moisture emergency. Even if you live in a climate with a mild winter, your skin care routine still needs to be switched up.
Dry air means parched skin. Help minimize flakiness and encourage cell turnover by exfoliating at least twice a week. If your skin is oily, you can use a mild exfoliant daily. For sensitive skin, stick to once a week. As for the type…
The best thing I have found works best with my skin is, Gold Bond Ultimate Healing… Of course, I buy generic but it works! Even on my face without causing a break out… It used to be the only way that I could stop the skin on my hands from breaking apart was applying A LOT of nivea to my hands and wearing special gloves at night… Talk about expensive! but then I recently discovered this and 1 to 2 applications of this throughout the day and I have no problems whatsoever. Doesn't feel greasy so no worries about it being on the face. I usually put it on before I put my make up on (give it time to dry of course).
