If you think that entering that first week of temperature drops can be a real shock to our system, just imagine what your skin is going through.

Face– Protect your face with Olay Regenerist Retinol24 Max Night Face Moisturizer. It is fragrance free and this new addition is formulated with 20% more of Olay’s Retinol24 Complex. This Night time wonder is packed with Retinol24’s maximum concentration of hydrator to leave your skin feeling hydrated and replenished. A combination of Vitamin B3 plus Olay’s most transformative Retinoid Complex delivers 24 Hour Hydration, 24 Hour Potency (it’s active on the skin for 24 hours), wake up brighter and smoother every morning.
This product is available in 3 forms, the moisturizer, a serum, or an eye creme. So choose where you need the moisture the most. Available for under $35 and can be purchased at Olay.com or check your local retailer for curbside pickup.
Body– This is a super easy tip that I learned years ago when I started traveling for work in different climates. If you typically take really hot showers, this can be a real skin saver in the cold months ahead! Turn the heat DOWN on your daily shower routine. This can help your skin retain some of it’s natural moisture, instead of it all evaporating away while you are in the shower.
Sugar Scrub– Using a sugar scrub for exfoliation will slough away dead skin cells and give your skin a chance to take in the moisture from your lotion. My Current Favorite is the Silky Milky Sugar Scrub by Love Your Journey Doula Services. It is formulated with the light scent of golden milk and honey which is absolutely heavenly. Make sure that you are using a sugar scrub, not a salt scrub, as salt can be drying. This scrub can be purchased in a paper kit at loveyourjourneydoulaserviced.com
Pro Tip– Once you are out of the shower use a towel to blot most of the water off, not all of it. Applying your skin lotion or moisturizer while you are still a little damp will also allow moisture to be retained in your skin.
Hands– Time to add your favorite hand cream to your Target Pick up Order. Make sure that you have one by each sink, ready to apply directly after hand washing. Grab a travel size to put in your purse or car after using sanitizer this year. Make sure that the lotion you choose has a low alcohol content so that you can get ahead of overly dry hands!
Feet– Our feet might not be hiding in boots near as much this year, but wearing heavy socks and slippers can still dry your skin out quite a bit. Try using a petroleum based product like Eucerine as a nightly foot mask. Once your feet have been cleaned, massage a generous amount into both the tops and bottoms of your feet. You can either elevate your feet while the cream soaks in, or place a clean white pair of socks on top during your nighttime skin care routine. This cream is available at your local drugstore and great for a myriad of dry skin concerns.
