There are so many things that I love about the winter months, but dry skin is certainly not one of them! I fall victim to slithery scaly skin the moment I slip up on my exfoliating and moisturizing game, so I try to stay on top of it – body, face and lips included.
Besides dry skin brushing, here are three of the exfoliating products I like to leave right in the shower to ensure I don’t skip a beat:
A few scoops of this a couple of times a week does wonders! A blend of coconut, lemongrass, lemon balm, jojoba and vanilla, it blissfully buffs the skin with the gentle sugar texture and leaves skin silky soft and supple. Bonus: you can use this on your lips, too.
I wrote about this last year and am happy to share that it’s still in my lineup! I try to remember to use it at least twice a week to take advantage of the ruby crystals which polish away dead surface cells, leaving my skin brighter, clearer and younger looking. It’s formulated with anti-aging Hyaluronic Acid, seaweed and organic red tea extracts making for an excellent combo of nourishment and antioxidant protection.
This is another product that I’ve written about a few times. When it’s good, it’s good! What can I say? I love the combination of organic shea butter, coconut oil, sugar and mint & rose geranium essential oils – it gently removes dry skin and leaves my lips supple and hydrated. When I pop out of the shower, I top my lips with my favorite lip balm and boom! As good as new!
