Winter certainly doesn’t want to go away easily this year even as far south as I am in Florida.
Ok so I know it’s nothing compared to the rest of the country our 2 or 3 days of true winter here and there followed by a few days of spring-like weather but we’ve even seen snow flurries even here this winter. At any rate, the cold always wreaks havoc on your skin drying it out and in extreme cases leading to painful cracking. Here are some at home treatments to help.
Banana Mask (to lubricate and cleanse dry skin)
Blend 1 medium or large banana until creamy smooth. Apply over your skin, avoiding the eyes and mouth. After 15 minutes, rinse with clear warm water.
Dry Skin Soother (exfoliates, lubricates, moisturizes and calms skin)
You need: ½ cup plain yogurt, 1 cold peeled, chopped cucumber, and 1 teaspoon olive oil
Mix ingredients together in a bowl then apply to face and neck. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. (Skip your regular moisturizer.)
Also check out the body butters from Authentic Me Beauty. When combined with the exfoliants it leads to deep moisturizer that lasts.
Until spring, stay safe, stay hydrated and moisturize.
