As winter is rolling along, I am noticing more and more of my clients coming in with really dry skin. Not only is this bad for your skin (dry skin causes wrinkles), but also your foundation will not look right on your skin. The foundation will sit on the surface of your skin without blending into your skin. Once you powder it, it looks even dryer! Some people prefer not to powder their foundation in the winter due to this; this is definitely an option, but naturally, your make-up won't last as long throughout the day. Moisturizing is super essential at this time of year. If you feel your regular moisturizer isn't enough, try using something heavier such as a cream instead. Creams are normally thicker consistency and more potent. A night cream would be IDEAL considering night creams are more "heavier duty" than a day moisturizer. Along with moisturizing your face, make sure you moisturize your lips as well. Chapped lips are also typical in the winter; moisturize lips regularly and exfoliate if you need to. Matte lipsticks are more suitable in the winter (as opposed to high-gloss ones), which in turn are drier lipsticks. If you have an event you're getting ready for, make sure to start the process at least a week before the event! In any case...start now!
