Breakouts and dry skin may mean there’s too much on your plate. Stress raises levels of cortisol, which in turn, ups oil production. Also, getting a bit too joyous with the cocktails can dehydrate you, resulting in dry skin; and winter air parches you from the outside, making skin flaky. Lack of sleep can bring on another problem: skin care laziness. Here are a few simple tips for tackling these issues:
- Soothe stress, sleeplessness and skin with a 10-minute warm bath
- Apply moisturizer while skin is wet, this will help trap moisture in the top two layers of your skin
- Alternate drinking alcohol with water to slow your intake, and stay hydrated
- Use a moisturizer/sunscreen combo, so you can save yourself an extra step
The cold and wind can really take a toll on your complexion. I like to use a thicker, more intense moisturizer during these winter months. I especially like Skin Ceuticals Emollience and Hydrating B5 Gel. And of course, I never forget my sunscreen.
