Skin Care Tips to Beat the Winter Blues

Skin Care
Even though it's still fairly warm here in San Diego, the winter skin blues have arrived. Yesterday as I was working at the computer, I found myself constantly scratching my face...which led to obsessing over my skin because they say that dry skin is one of the causes of lines and wrinkles!

Our hot water heater died this week and won't be fixed until Friday, so the cold water has done a number on my face. I came across these winter skin care tips from Kate Somerville and tried steaming my face by boiling hot water on the stove. Putting a towel over my head as I stood over the hot water sped up the process. Then I exfoliated my face with a loofah my friend gave me. Who says a facial has to be expensive?

I actually have been using Kate Somerville's Quench Hydrating Serum for the past year. It keeps the skin on my face soft, plus the formula is light and silky.

As for the skin on the rest of body...I recommend moisturizing the skin immediately after taking a shower. My go-to product right now is Shea Terra Organics Marula Whipped Shea Butter Body Creme, which is super creamy.
