Hope you’re having a fantastic week! Can you believe it’s already Thursday?! February is just flying by… But the winter season? Not so much. This cold, dry weather can really be a hassle toward your beauty routine, am I right? Let’s hope spring comes sooner rather than later! Until then, I’m here to share some top tips for curing dry skin.
You may have heard of this beauty trick before, but now more than ever is the perfect time to give it a try! Using a natural-bristle brush, gently exfoliate your skin in small, circular motions moving up from your feet, over your knees and thighs, all the way to your neck. Those dry spots are no match for this technique! Your body lotions and creams will go on sooo much smoother and last longer.
BONUS: Dry brushing improves circulation, causing your skin to look and feel firmer (buh-bye, cellulite!).
SHORTEN YOUR SHOWER
I know, nothing sounds more relaxing than taking a long, hot shower on a winter day. But this is seriously damaging to your skin! Make the switch to lukewarm water and cut your showers to under 10 minutes to maintain your skin’s natural moisture and oils. This will save your skin in the long run, trust me!
Ugh. I don’t even want to begin talking about those flaky patches where skin is thinnest – especially on the elbows and knees. I’ve been using Enza Essentials Shea Butter Body Polish to gently exfoliate in the shower and OH MY GOSH, you guys, my skin has never felt so smooth! Once spring hits, I’ll be so ready to show off my rejuvenated skin. Just remember not to over-exfoliate as this can cause more harm to your skin than good!
Oh, and don’t forget your lips! Reach for a clean and dry toothbrush to scrub on your fave lip balm or DIY scrub, then finish with an oil (like Enza Essentials Liquid Gold) to fully protect your pout!
So, you’ve just finished showering and you’re ready to quick towel-off and get on with your day…but wait! Before you get dressed, reach for your body lotion! It’s best to apply lotion within a minute after turning off the water so you can keep as much moisture in your skin as possible! I like to keep my Shea Body Butter right on the sink so I never forget this extra smooth step.
And, your lips need moisture and protection too! Give your pucker an extra plump boost of hydration with Enza’s Lip Treatment. I can’t go to bed without putting this on!
HYDRATE FROM WITHIN
You don’t want your diet to be the reason for dry skin, right? So, whether it’s good ol’ H20 or even green tea, be sure to get your ounces in EVERY. DAY. Getting that extra hydration in your body will result in less wrinkles and firmer, brighter skin!
Remember: it’s super important to find skin care that is designed to fit YOUR skin, not a one-size-fits-all regimen! Let the experts at Enza Essentials design an entire routine to address your skin concerns – yes, even dry skin! – and you will see results SO quick, guaranteed!
