The winter is a massive drain on many aspects of life. We have to change our hair care routine, our wardrobe, and our skin care routine. Every time I catch myself looking at old pictures in my camera roll for a TBT update, I find myself yearning for the summer time glow that just comes so easily. However I realized while I was doing my make up the other day, that it is not impossible to catch the summer glow in the winter! A little harder… but definitely not impossible, and I’m going to show you how to catch it!

How To Catch The Summer Glow In The Winter

1. Exfoliate: The first thing you’re going to need to do is get that skin ready to glow. Exfoliating helps lift off the dead skin cells and unleash the glow you’ve got hidden underneath. Especially during the winter, your skin is building up a barrier against the cold, but that barrier leaves behind rough and tough dry dull skin. No one wants to walk around taking selfies of that. Invest in an exfoliator (preferably one that is good for sensitive skin) that you can use 1-2 times a week.

2. Choose Your Products Wisely: You want to make sure that the products you are using have quality ingredients that aren’t going to do more harm than good. Moisturizing products that can penetrate the skin and reveal your true glow should be at the top of your skin care regimen. I’ve been using Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™  daily to get my summer time glow. I’m very picky with my moisturizers because, even if some focus on giving you a glowy look, they will also turn you into a grease ball! The Vaseline® Cocoa Radiant moisturizer contains pure cocoa butter to leave skin deeply moisturized plus Vaseline® Jelly that absorb deeply to heal dry skin, revealing its natural glow. The pure cocoa butter and vaseline jelly also absorb quickly so you avoid the whole greasy look which is absolutely gross. One product handling multiple steps in my skin care routine is a win. (Because I don’t have time to use seven different products to get the job done) With the Vaseline® Cocoa Radiant you heal your dry skin, while simultaneously locking in moisture.

Besides making my skin reach level 10 I love a brand that supports a good cause. Every purchase of Vaseline® lotion in the U.S will help support Direct Relief through a buy one to help heal one promotion.

3. Drink 2-3 Liters Of Water: You have to add water to the mix!! Water will help reveal your natural glow even through the bitter cold winter months. By adding 2-3 liters of water into your regimen you’re giving your skin hydration from within that will shine through daily. It will also help keep the acne away which can be a huge damper on you slaying through out the year. If 3 liters may be too much to start with, I suggest you start with 2 liters and pace yourself through out the day. Your skin will thank you for it!
