One thing I learned while being in NYC last week was that the cold is NOT friendly, So I made a daily regimen of using a serum as soon as I got out the shower followed by one of the butters. It kept my skin from feeling dry and itchy and helped with the freezing weather my skin was experiencing for the first time.
I figured that once back home my skin would “fall back in line”. No such thing. The extreme change in weather and temperature actually caused my skin to behave badly. This was the first time I had experienced wind that actually burned my skin 😥 and now I have wind-burned skin. So now my next step in taking care of my skin is incorporating an exfoliant in the mix. So what I did first of all was reach for my coffee polish and that became part of a quick four day regimen to get my skin back in line and fast! So for two days I used the coffee polish just before the shower. Bathed as I normally do and started with using the serum on still wet skin. Pat dry or air dry and then followed with a lotion (it is just too hot right now to use butter on my skin). Then on the third day I switched to one of my cornmeal polishes; still continued with the serum and lotion application after the shower. I am so relieved to say that my skin has finally decided to “fall back in line” and the burned portions of my skin have gone.
It is so important to make sure that a regular routine of exfoliating is part of your daily skin care regime. Whether during the summer or during the winter. You need to make sure your skin has all that it needs to stay healthy and beautiful even when the worst weather comes…or you have to go to it 😉
