Keep your skin silky

Is your skin suffering from its own case of the winter blues? If you find your skin to be extremely dry and itchy during the winter season, it may be time to reevaluate your skincare products to make sure they are effective in combating dryness. Make sure your winter products include lotions, moisturizers, and creams that will leave your skin healthy, soft, and radiant without clogging up your pores.

Stock up on the following skincare goodies and add them into your winter skin care regimen for a healthy, glowing complexion.

1Coconut oil lotion

Coconut oil works wonders for transforming dry skin into smooth skin. Massage your skin with coconut oil to keep it healthy and to give yourself a refreshed look during wintry weather. This natural oil is known to protect and enhance the skin's appearance.

2Jojoba oil

If you have sensitive skin and you want to steer clear of products that will increase the dryness of your skin, stock up on jojoba oil as your winter moisturizer.

This oil is used for nourishing the skin and treating acne and other skin problems through its prevention of bacteria. So, if you notice your dry skin is causing a flare up, apply jojoba oil to say goodbye to your pimples within a couple of days. This skin softener is also known for reducing wrinkles and stretch marks.

3Olive oil cream

Olive oil is a natural moisturizer that effectively combats dry, itchy winter skin. From vitamin E to vitamin K, skincare products containing olive oil are rich in nutrients that will relieve flaky skin and the "winter itch." Massaging your skin with olive oil creams and moisturizers will help to firm your skin and preserve its moisture.

4Milk body lotions

Keep milk body lotions handy in your purse to avoid having dry hands often caused by cold, winter weather. Milk lotions are packed with milk proteins and vitamin E, and the creaminess hydrates the skin for a radiant look. So you can say hello to silky, smooth hands and kiss your dry, rough hands goodbye.

5Shielding lotion

If you live in a climate with harsh winters, research shows that this new lotion, which was formulated to protect the skin from harsh weather conditions and external irritants, will keep the skin hydrated by restoring the skin's moisture and reducing moisture loss. If you are concerned about your skin being damaged from the cold weather, this moisturizer's purpose is to heal, replenish, and moisturize the skin naturally.

6Shea butter

You can't go wrong with this skin conditioner when it comes to nurturing your skin with the right vitamins to strip away dry, rough skin. Shea butter will also give you a clear complexion without clogging up your pores, and it works as a skin protector against the sun, which is still essential during the winter season.
