Winter weather can leave your skin dry and tight - neither of which are idea for makeup application. Since the air lacks humidity during the winter months skin creates more dead cells that can pile up. Exfoliation is extra important during this time and is the perfect way to prep your skin for a glowing, soft look. The three steps above are the basics to getting your skin into shape. Along with those three initial steps; hydration (lots of water), a good mask (my favorite are sheet masks, less mess and super effective), and sleep will also help repair your skin from winter/holiday damage. The last thing not to forget are your lips. A good scrub (brown sugar is perfect) and a thick lip balm for overnight will help repair dry, chapped lips.
