Top 5 Ways to Love Your Winter Skin

We’re a third of the way through winter and your skin may be feeling the effects. Here are Smart Cover’s top 5 ways to love your winter skin!

Too much hot water is drying to the skin, so beware those long, hot showers. What is great for your skin, however, is steam! It opens up your pores and boosts circulation. You can buy at-home facial sauna systems for under 30 dollars, or you can make your own for free. Just lean over a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes, with your face about a foot away from the bowl. Pat your face dry and moisturize.

The sun shines all year round, even if it doesn’t quite feel like it. That means you can’t slack off on applying sunblock every day. Use a moisturizer during the day that contains SPF 15 or more, and don’t forget your sunglasses when you go outside!

Love Your Winter Skin

There’s never a good time to fall asleep wearing makeup and winter is no exception. Use Smart Cover’s Makeup Remover and Cleanser to take off all your makeup without over-drying your skin.

After you wash your face, apply a moisturizer with antioxidants before bed. Antioxidants fight free radicals and help keep your skin looking young. Makeup.com explains: “Free radicals can damage the skin by trying to grab an extra electron from atoms in the skin. When atoms are taken away from molecules in the skin, it causes damage to our skin’s DNA that can speed along skin aging.”

Your skin tends to be dry in the winter, making it easier for foundation to seep into the cracks and instantly age you. Applying Smart Cover’s Moisture Primer Lotion before your concealer will give your makeup a smooth, even surface to “stick to,” and it’ll last longer and look better.
