The celebrities were glowing on the red carpet last night and not just from the shimmery gowns and beautiful makeup. It was clear that the A-listers have been taking great care of their skin, despite the dry winter climate many are in at this time of year. New Beauty reveals the celebrity winter skin secrets that are surprisingly easy and not overly expensive. The key is consistency when it comes to great skin.
Don’t Over Moisturize
We tend to try to overcompensate for the dry climate by loading on an extra layer of moisturizer. Not everyone needs extra moisturizer in the winter and extra layers can cause your skin to breakout. Take a closer look at your skin each morning to determine what it needs as everyday will not be the same.
Exfoliate The Right Way
When the heat is on inside because of the cold air outside, the skin becomes depleted of its natural moisture, leaving it feeling tight and dry. Instead of overcompensating with extra moisturizer, exfoliate the dead skin that has built up on the surface of the skin. Exfoliating with a Clarisonic brush 2-3 times a week is ideal.
Pair Moisturizer with a Serum
Moisturizers are great but sometimes just aren’t enough. Using a serum underneath a great moisturizer helps better hydrate the skin because the damp skin allows for the moisture to absorb more effectively. Try SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel followed by SkinCeuticals Emollience cream.
Don’t Forget Your Body
Body oil or even coconut oils is incredible for the skin, especially during winter. Start with a thin layer of oil followed by your favorite body moisturizer to lock the oil in.
Be Mindful of In-Office Treatments
Celebrities don’t like to talk about any procedures done at a cosmetic facility but it comes as no surprise that they rejuvenate their skin with chemical peels. You definitely need to be more careful with chemical peels during the winter months but it’s important to undergo a series that will peel away the dry, dull skin and leave your skin glowing all winter long
