A few days ago, I posted my winter to-do list filled with all of the fun things that I’m looking forward to this month. But you know one thing I’m not looking forward to? Winter skin. During December and January, my skin definitely tends to be drier and duller. Chatting about how to avoid winter skin woes in today’s post using four simple tips and the new Olay Whips moisturizer. My skin has literally been drinking this stuff up!

1. Replenish Your Moisture
When the humidity drops, so does the moisture level in your skin. Dry skin not only dulls your complexion, it’s more prone to wrinkles! That’s why I’m loving the Olay Whips moisturizer that’s powerfully moisturizing while still being lightweight on my skin.
About a month ago, I blind-tested this product to give an authentic review without knowing the brand beforehand. I was so impressed with the cream to liquid technology that instantly absorbs into the skin. The formula leaves my skin feeling soft while giving it a matte finish almost like a primer – which I totally wasn’t expecting! Skin is breathable and hydrated!

2. Keep the Thermostat Low
Cranking up the heat may be your initial reaction when it’s cold outside, but only heat your house as high as necessary. You probably don’t even realize the impact that added heat has on your skin! Not to mention the big change in temperature when you go from outdoors to indoors.
3. Stay Hydrated + Feed Your Skin
Water and diet make such a difference when it comes to healthy skin! With holiday parties and events, it’s so tempting to overdo it on the sweets – I’m going to make a better effort at limiting my sugar cookie intake this year!
4. Get Your Beauty Sleep
Create a winter nighttime routine to keep from losing sleep during the holidays. I like to use a lavender essential oil, pillow spray and silk pillowcase that’s gentler than cotton cases!
