3 Winter Skincare Tips

January 19, 2017

 

The same way you dress your body in stylish layers of comfortable clothing every winter is the same way you should be cleansing, lathering and dousing your skin with care every winter! There are layers to this skincare thang. As WOC, it’s imperative we take care of our skin, especially in the dry, brittle season.

 

It’s so easy not to, though. I feel ya. We say:

  1. We don’t have the time.
  2. It doesn’t matter since no one can see our skin underneath all of our clothes.

 

Meanwhile, we walk around all cute, covered and protected but underneath all those clothes, our skin looks like it has been on the battlefield with baby powder! HA. Exposed. Didn’t think I’d go there, huh?! We have to do better hahaha.

 

Hence, why I’m here. Believe it or not, there are three easy ways to care for your skin…yes, in the winter time, girl! Here’s what you should do for your best winter skincare results:

 

  1. Exfoliate – Either go buy a scrub or create your own! I’m not really into DIY so I’d probably go with the first option but if you’re creative down to the nitty gritty, go for it. I know you need sugar and…I don’t know — just Pinterest the rest! I assure you, it’s easy though haha. I see it done up and down my timeline all the time!
  2. Take a Long, WARM Shower – Notice I said warm, and not hot. I know you’re cold, girl. Me too. But you are hurting your skin when you indulge in all that heat. It may feel good but it’s not so good to your poor skin. You’re drying it out in the process!
  3. Moisturize…immediately – I’m totally the meme of the cartoon that chills out in all of her birthday suit glory after a shower. I’ll go on my phone and scroll through Insta or I’ll just do nothing and lie there! However, I can’t afford to do that in the winter and neither can you. The best thing you can do is moisturize right after you get out the shower.

When my siblings and I were children, my mother used to rub Palmer’s Cocoa Butter on us all. Recently, I’ve rediscovered it for myself. I’ve been primarily using Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Skin Therapy Lotion, Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Skin Therapy Concentrated Cream and the Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick (because your lips need love, too!)

 

 

 

 

Use the therapy lotion right after you towel dry for optimal results. And when you’re heading out to brave those biting winds, use the cream. That one is ideal for your hands, elbows and knees. I love how it doesn’t leave me feeling greasy…and they all smell really good, too! Ah, childhood.

 

Right next to coconut oil, cocoa butter is WOC’s best friend. You can’t tell me I’m wrong! Palmer’s Cocoa Butter is clinically proven to heal rough, dry skin; it smoothes marks and scars and tones. The rich natural moisturizer locks your silky and rejuvenated skin in with 24 hour moisture. Ya heard me, no ash!

 

Keep your skin soft and glowing all season long. Join the #palmerscocoatour!

  • When you get a seat at the table 😭🙌🏾 Seeing my name there reminded me of all my late nights working on my website. Reminded me of my continuous battle of finding balance with all my side jobs, church responsibilities and simply taking care of myself. Reminded me of those times I️ just felt “blah” because I️ was doing all of the right things and making connections with all the right people but wasn’t yet presented THE opportunity. I️ have a long way to go but I️ have that now. My first post as a @teenvogue fashion writer is up and I have all the feels. God is working. On His own timing, but He’s working — He has never stopped ❤️ (SB: iPhone won’t let me be great but ima talk of God’s goodness anyway! 😂)
