Keep on Glowing While It’s Snowing

All skin types need to exfoliate and moisturize, especially during the dry winter months.

Skin Needs Care

Every day your skin produces special oils to lock in moisture and block out bacteria. These oils build up and combine with shed skin cells to create an itchy, acne-inducing paste. That’s where exfoliation comes in! An exfoliant is a cleansing cream with crushed nuts, fine salts, micro beads or sugar added to it, which gently scrapes away dead skin cells.

While our skin does its best to stay hydrated, winter can be a painfully dry time of year. A little moisturizer goes a long way towards keeping skin soft and healthy. Moisturizers plump up dehydrated skin cells and provide a thin barrier of protection, keeping that moisture where your body needs it.
