Give Your Skin a Hydrating Boost
It’s sweater weather! Don’t forget to give your skincare a hydrating boost. Your skincare routine should reflect the condition your skin is in, such as increased dryness during winter months.

Why Does Our Skin Get Dry in the Winter?
During the winter, your skin is most at risk for transepidermal water loss (TEWL) due to dry air. In order to compensate for the lack of moisture, the air will attempt to pull water from within your skin. This can leave your skin extra crepey, feeling dull, flat, or have increased fine lines. Thus, it is imperative to increase your skin’s barrier via improved cellular cohesion. Simply put, your skin need a boost of moisture! We’ve curated our favorite products that will fit into anyone’s routine.
