In the nude*

Since all the craziness of the holidays are over and 2012 is now here, It's time to get back to basics and refresh yourself for the upcoming spring season!

Let's get down to the bare basics of how to keep your skin healthy during the winter so you can be GLOWING once the spring/summer hits! Your skin is mostly likely feeling dry, itchy, and just plain yuck during this time, so make sure to moisturize, MOISTURIZE, moisturize! It can't be stressed enough. According to find moisturizers that have an oil base. Having an oil base will serve as a shield over your skin locking in more moisture. Avoid moisturizers with a lot of alcohol in them, for example the scented lotions from Victoria's Secret or Bath & Body works. Even though they moisturize the alcohol will not help improve the well being of your skin, rather it will just keep it at the state that it is in.
Exfoliation is a another great way to keep your skin polished and looking new. Exfoliate 1 - 3 times a week, be sure to ease your way into it, so that you are not over exfoliating and drying your skin out more! There is great selections at Ulta or Sephora depending on your favorite smell and if you would rather use a sugar scrub or salt scrub. One of my favorite exfoliators is the Sandstone Soap from LUSH. It is a organic handmade soap! Inside in amazing lemon scented soap is grains of sand great for an everyday exfoliation! Anything that includes lemon is great for your skin too! Not only does it have tons of antioxidants for your skin, it helps brighten your skin and keep it glowing! Another way to avoid dry skin is stay away from the tanning beds!! Get a spray tan (way more healthy for you in every way!) or slather on some Jergens for a natural glowing look.
Your face is usually the most visible and exposed part of your body during the winter so make sure that you are protecting it in anyway that you can! Even though it's winter and the snow may be falling DO NOT FORGET to wear sun screen! Weekly face mask's and exfoliation is great too. Don't forget your lips! Keep your lips moist with your favorite chap stick. Also exfoliation for your lips works too! A little recipe I use is mixing sugar and olive oil and rubbing it on your lips. The olive oil will moisten while the sugar scrubs away any dead, unnecessary skin.
There are tons more to keep your skin juiced and refreshed and get it spring/summer ready!!  SHARE SOME OF YOUR REMEDIES, TIPS & TRICKS BELOW!!!
