Tip 1: Don't Over Wash
As you may already know, hot water and many soaps will pull all the oils of your skin leaving it dry. Throughout the winter, I typically bathe my entire body every other to every third day.
Tip 2: Sugar & Olive Oil Face & Body Scrub
I mix up sugar and olive oil and scrub my entire face and body right before I shower. This gets rid of all my dry flaky skin and the olive oil soaks in and leaves my skin baby soft.
Extra tip: Don't wash off the olive oil with soap or rub it all off with a towel, I pat myself dry with a towel after showering or simply air dry.
Tip 3: Moisturize with Heavy Oils/Butters
If you typically moisturize with a light oil such as avocado, coconut, almond, argon, jojoba, apricot, grapeseed, or rosehip oils, use an additional heavy oil or butter.
Heavy oils and butters will typically leave a thin coat that takes time to soak into your skin. This is why they make great deep moisturizers and will help hold in moisture. They are great to use over night but you may need it more while rehydrating your skin or just in general during the winter months.
Moisturizers with Beeswax
MooseForce combines shea butter and beeswax along with coconut oil, almond oil, and other essential oils for extreme moisture and skin healing. I apply MooseForce constantly after washing my hands or washing dishes.
Tip 4: Apply Heavy Butters or Salves Before Outdoor Activities
Applying a heavy moisturizer creates a thin layer on your skin which will help block your skin from the wind and cold, dry air.
I apply MooseForce to my face each time I go hiking during the winter.
