Winter is a beautiful time of year full of so many reasons to dress up and be extra glam, but it is also infamous for dry, cracked, irritated skin. This year, don’t hide your pretty and sweet face to avoid the frigid temps, clumpy snow, and cold winds. Just try these top winter beauty hacks instead from your friends at Beauty Bakerie and glow from the inside out.
Exfoliate Your Face and Lips
Although common in the winter, dry flaky skin is not appealing. Combat the hydration-ridden winter air by exfoliating your skin about once per week. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub for oily or combination skin, and a peeling gel product for sensitive skin. Lips are even more sensitive to the harshness of winter and get cracked very easily. Slough away dry skin and reveal a soft pout with our Sugar Lip Scrub.
Swap Out Your Cream Moisturizer for Face Oil
This time of year, your sweet skin may need something more nourishing and penetrating than your usual cream moisturizer. With smaller particles than thick cream, a face oil uses a combination of hydrating oils to absorb well and sooth dry, inflamed skin. Apply a little Sugar Lip Scrub before bed for a hydrating boost for your lips.
Add Oatmeal to Your Bath
A warm bath is not only amazingly relaxing in the dead of winter but it can also be soothing and hydrating. For your next soak, add oatmeal and dried lavender to your bath and soothe your irritated, dry, and itchy skin. Once you’re out, warm up a bit of coconut oil in your hands and apply it all over your body.
Use Your Favorite Waterproof Makeup
The smudge-proof, waterproof matte and metallic lipsticks, brow gels, cream eyeshadows, and gel eyeliners from Beauty Bakerie are essential for winter to combat the harsh wet weather. Use a black or brown gel eyeliner in between your lashes in place of mascara to avoid smears and clumps, apply an illuminator on your cheekbones to glow through the snow, and rock a red Lip Whip for the holiday season.
