As fall turns into winter, your skin can become pale, dull and dried out. Here are some skin care and make up tips that will ensure you keep a healthy glow all year long.
- Keep skin moisturized and drink plenty of water (meaning 6-8 cups every day). You should use a moisturizer that contains an SPF of at least 15, since the sun’s harmful rays can damage your skin even in the winter. We suggest Clean & Clear Soft Oil-Free Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($6.37 at drugstore.com).
- Don’t wash your face more than twice a day to prevent redness, dryness and flaking. Also, don’t shower in extremely hot water because it can be drying.
- Get plenty of exercise to get a natural glow (since cardio stimulates blood flow).
- When you need an instant glow, use a combination of bronzer and blush to make your face look alive. We suggest the Cat Cosmetics Ultimate Bronzing Kit ($28 at catcosmetics.com) because it contains both. Lightly brush the sheer bronzer over your entire face, then add the darker bronzer on your cheekbones. Finish with the lightweight cream blush on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy-looking glow.
