Hi beautiful babies! As I filmed this video, I realized that a lot of these products I use year-round, as I have dry skin in general and a few are extreme dry skin (winter) specific.
When I grew up in Upstate NY, those winters were rough. My skin would just hurt for a solid 3 months straight. I wish I had so many of these products then. But I was a teenager and thought I knew anything and everything (ha!) and used a ton of products for oily skin and acne. My poor skin! It was so dry and itchy and hurt to touch from the moment the temperatures starting dropping in the Fall, all the way until Spring.
As I got into my mid and late twenties, 1 – I was grateful I wore sunblock throughout my teens and early twenties. That is my one big skin win! And 2 – it was time to get serious about moisture. My skin was getting a bit taut and pulled looking (a sign it is dehydrated), even though the Los Angeles winters are so mild and a world of difference from those zero temp days of Upstate NY.
I started using oils in 2003/2004 and gradually started adding more and more to everything. Oil in my face wash, oil as my face moisturizer, oil in my hair. I went oil crazy!
Before we get to the video, I will say my #1 tip for having hydrated skin will not cost you one single dime: DRINK WATER. Every dang second from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep – Stay Sipping. That’s the official GirlGetGlamorous motto, haha! It’ll make a huge difference.
