Winter and skincare is NO joke, I suffer from dry skin during winter months, the cold weather can really do a number on me and my skin if I don’t take care of it properly and make sure it stays hydrated! I didn’t know this until week but today is Winter Skin Relief Day, it’s celebrated annually on January 8, Winter Skin Relief Day brings awareness to all the extra attention winter skin needs.  The dropping temperatures outside and rising thermostats inside sap the amount of moisture in the air, and our skin is first to notice. As winter kicks into high gear, Winter Skin Relief Day reminds us of all the ways we can protect our skin under the harshest elements. Living in Washington State wasn’t my choice but hey, we live here and we have some of the longest, harshest winters, good skincare is a must for me!

4 Steps To Help Hydrate Skin Throughout Winter

Cleanse

Every morning, after my coffee, I wash and cleanse my face to get all of yesterdays gunk off, that way I’m starting with a fresh face.  Cleanse, hydrate and restore and protect your skin with CeraVe® Hydrating Facial Cleanser, which contains hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture while removing dirt, oil and makeup.  I only learned about hyaluronic acid a few years ago and seriously, it’s done wonders for my skin, I’m super happy that it’s now a part of one of my favorite brands of skincare products.

Moisturize

Keeping my face moisturized throughout the day is a must, otherwise it gets dry and I get that horrible flaky skin that no one wants!  Cleanse, hydrate and restore and protect your skin with CeraVe® Hydrating Facial Cleanser, which contains hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture while removing dirt, oil and makeup.  I love this stuff, it melts into my skin super quick and provides me with the moisture I need for my skin to get through the day!

Protect

I mainly use this on my elbows and around the sides of my nose and hairline, as someone who has suffered from bad flare ups of psoriasis in the past (Really Bad), I need to keep my body fully moisturized throughout the day, this is an essential. CeraVe® Healing Ointment (National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance™) provides your skin with the intense, long-lasting moisturization it craves during the winter time. Combined with a non-greasy gentle formula, CeraVe® Healing Ointment soothes, temporarily protects and helps to relieve dry, chapped and chafed skin caused by the colder air.

Renew

Before I go to bed I like to take off my make up and cleanse my face again, after cleansing I apply a night cream, mainly for moisture throughout the night as the humidity level here is pretty much 0. CeraVe® Skin Renewing Night Cream also contains hyaluronic acid, ultimately helping reduce the look of tired skin and supporting skin elasticity.  I wake up in the morning with a fresh face and it’s now becoming a part of my skincare routine.
