WINTER SKIN CARE TIPS
Winter is for cozying up by the fire, sipping piping hot tea, and donning the warmest sweaters the season has to offer.
The chilly temperatures bring all sorts of festive vibes, but dry, parched winter skin is not one of them. Be prepared this season with these simple skin care tips that will keep your skin feeling fresh and fabulous.
1. KEEP IT GENTLE
As winter skin tends to be more sensitive, certain cleansers and treatments can be harsher than they need to be. Instead of a salicylic acid wash, keep it simple and invest in a gentle cleanser that is just as cleansing as it is calming. Try using a face wash that contains naturally soothing ingredients - like rosewater.
2. MOISTURIZE WITH SPF
While the sun may be the last thing on your mind, harmful UV rays still exist - even in the dead of winter. Do your skin a favor and wear a moisturizer with SPF. A soothing moisturizer packed with SPF is exactly what you need to protect your skin while nourishing it with essential nutrients.
Exfoliating is even more necessary in the wintertime, as your skin tends to be dry and flaky. Using a gentle exfoliator at least once a week removes dead skin cells and evens out your skin tone to achieve a glowing complexion. What's even better? Removing the dead skin cells makes it even easier for your new products to sink in and take effect. Make sure to do your research and find an exfoliator that best suits your skin.
4. SLEEP ON IT
A trusty sleep mask is a must. Overnight facial masks lock in moisture and allow your skin to be hydrated and recharged all evening long. An overnight facial brightens the skin and builds elasticity. The best part? You get to sleep while the mask does all the work! A luxurious, antioxidant-rich sleep mask is exactly what your face needs to wake up with confidence to conquer the cold winter weather.
5. DON’T FORGET YOUR LIPS
That’s right - your lips need attention too! Pamper yourself with a creamy lip balm to keep your lips kissable all season long. For extra protection, opt for balms with SPF. Remember: exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. Invest in a lip scrub that gently buffs and polishes your lips to keep them silky soft.
6. CONSIDER A HUMIDIFIER
That's right - they aren't just for sick days. Humidifiers lock in moisture for lasting hydration, so you can kiss dry, itchy skin goodbye. Setting one up in your room while you snooze is an effortless step to healthy winter skin.
7. LAYER UP
As festive and cozy as winter weather is, frigid wind chill is no joke. Layer up to protect your skin from the cold temps that dry and irritate the skin. Our midi-length J.ING Athena Cardigan is the perfect length to keep you warm and protected, while its soft wool blend won’t irritate sensitive skin. Our Sunny Turtleneck is a cold weather staple, and by far is the most stylish way to protect your neck and arms from that frightfully frosty weather. If you’re in need of a no fuss, winter-is-coming-jacket, our Acacia Parka needs to be on your holiday wish list. Its oversized fur collar protects your neck, while its insulated plush lining keeps you toasty.
This season, don't let the cold catch you by surprise. Face the new season head on with radiant skin and effortless style.
