Head To Toes Winter Skincare Tips

When people think of skincare, most think of the face, but it goes beyond that! Especially, for those in our forties as we get older some of can start to see the dreaded Turkey neck and more! Plus, when the weather gets colder, the humidity drops making our skin particularly vulnerable to dryness and cracking. But there are some things you can do to help prevent and treat some of these skincare issues.

Now before I get into the tips, I think it is important that you understand that as our skin ages, the skins natural renewal process slows down, which can cause dead cells to build up on the skin’s surface. This buildup can leave us with an uneven skin tone, roughness, and creates false wrinkles; it can also clog our pores, causing breakouts. Yuk, I know! And if that wasn't bad enough, our oil glands also become less active, which can make it harder to retain moisture in the skin.

With moisture zapped, our confidence can sometimes follow. On the other hand, if our skin is properly hydrated, it will be able to defend itself against some of those environmental factors, like dry weather, soaps, and dirt that can wreak havoc on our skin over the years!   That is why it is important that we have a great skincare regimen that is properly moisturizing and exfoliating our skin from the neck down!

Skincare Treatment And Preventative Tips From Your Head To Your Toes

Sunscreen is a must in your skincare arsenal, especially for that sun goddess. Sun does take a toll on your skin, with sunspots, dryness, looseness and more. Some of the most telling signs of aging skin are very distinct from the neck on down. Hence, no matter the time of year, use a sunscreen!

While the weather outside may be frightful, this doesn’t mean your skin needs to be as well.  During these cold winter months, our beauty regimen can sure be affected by these blistering cold winds.

Because of this, it is essential to take extra care of our ourselves, especially for those with sensitive skin as people with sensitive skin need to stay away from artificial dyes and synthetic fragrances. And adding a product like Nature Well Beauty Moisturizing Trio can be a plus.

NatureWell Beauty
Now before I get into the product, I wanted to let you know a bit about NatureWell.

Inspired by nature and committed to wellness, NatureWell is a collection of beneficial formulas that address the daily needs of skin, hair and body. We believe the better you feel, the better you will look. Our goal is to help people make this connection with a mission to encourage self-care.

These luxurious hydrating cream are ideal for use over the entire body to soften, soothe and moisturize without leaving a greasy residue. Additionally, they help to restore and replenish dry skin, while shielding the skin from free-radical damage.

The line comes in 3 delectable scents to include Coconut Oil, Pomegranate and Marula Oil.  Additionally, this trio also offers…
  • Ultra hydration

  • Never tested on animals

The Dreaded Bacne
Anyone with acne knows how frustrating it can be, but if you are one that struggles with it on other parts of your body, like your back, it can make it even worse. So, what is a person to do? Well, the good thing is that body acne can be cleared up using the same type of ingredients we’d use on our face.

Additionally, you want to make sure that you are avoiding those drying bar soaps, as the harsh ingredients in those can dehydrate the skin as well as clogging your pores.

You also want to make sure that you are using products that do not contain strong synthetic fragrances. While they may smell pretty they are not pretty for the skin.

Therefore, adding products that contain both peppermint oil and tea tree can be a plus! Studies have shown that the menthol in the peppermint can be effective at helping to neutralize bacteria and tea tree oil has amazing skin-balancing properties which are helpful for problematic skin.

Clogged Pores
Yes, we can also get clogged pores on our arms, shoulders, back and other areas of our body. If you find yourself experiencing this, an excellent tip for starters is to look at what detergents you are using to wash your clothes. Laundry detergents that contain fragrances can clog and aggravate the hair follicles.

Also, those scented body sprays can add to some unsightly bumps, so if you still want to wear one, spray it in an area that is less likely to be prone to clog pores, like your wrist.

Lastly, adding a skincare device like Michael Todd Beauty Soniclear Elite Deluxe System where you can use a antimicrobial Body Brush(s) is a must. This system is perfect for exfoliating the entire  body!

It comes with a 6 piece set that is ideal for helping to remove those dead skin cells that can clog your pores as well as reducing any dry patches. And finally, this brush head is antimicrobial to help protect against stain and odor-causing bacteria.

Prep your lips with exfoliation and moisturizer.

Exfoliate: To remove the access dead skin you want to exfoliate your lips.  You can do this with a lip exfoliating product, that sloughs away the dryness and replenishes providing instant hydration.

Treatment: It is time to say goodbye to dry lips winter lips and hello to a kissably soft pout with Patchology Lip Renewal FlashPatch 5 Minute Hydrogels!

I love how these latex-free lip gels feel on my lips. It is a LIPtastic way to moisturize the lips much faster than some other products out there. Plus, being over 40 the peptides and green tea extract can help to not only soothe but deliver anti-aging benefits when used regularly.

Moisturize: Your lips can get really dry and flaky in the winter months. Making your pout not so irresistibly soft.  Therefore it is important to moisturizer your lips.

Lip Products: A perfect product for your lips for the cold winter months Itcosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Hydrating Lip Gloss, Je Ne Sais Quoi.

This lipgloss stain drenches your lips in hydrating butters and oils working together with collagen, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to help nourish your lips while minimizing the appearance of lip lines!

Yep, we can’ forget those feet! Because when your feet feel good, your whole body feels refreshed and energized. Plus, the cold weather can drain away moisture from your feet, so getting them spring ready requires some moisturizing!

For gentle exfoliation and intense hydration, you want to apply the AmLactin Foot Cream all over your feet and toes.  Don’t forget your heels!

In addition to selecting a great skincare product, you need to make sure you are drinking plenty of water...

Proper hydration is essential for healthy skin! So hopefully, this is something you’ve been doing for years!  When you add drinking plenty of water to your skincare regimen, it can help your skin to look plumper and minimize the signs of aging. Make it a habit of having a glass of water or bottled water near you at all times.

IMPORTANT:  Once you realize you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated, and no one wants dehydrated skin, so plan ahead!

Overall, nearly two-thirds of U.S. women report that the older they get, the more difficult it is to keep their skin moisturized.  It needs to be a routine, and more importantly finding a product that offers many benefits, helping your skin from your head to your toes.
