Guess My Age
It’s everyone’s dream in the dead of winter to have dewy skin that’s immune to the effects of icy temperatures, whipping winds, and sahara- like heating. Good Luck with that, Right?
The air is frigid and dry outside, and any kind of indoor heat leaves it even more parched. Your skin’s protective barrier cracks, making it less able to repair itself, It becomes a vicious cycle unless you do something to prevent it—or treat it fast.

Here, just in time: A guide to great skin care and how to protecting your most moisture-starved parts so you can stay soft and smooth all season long.
Get Some Rest
The key to not looking tired? It’s…not being tired! Easier said than done, we know. Do whatever you can to get in seven to eight hours a night and your skin—including those pesky undereye bags!—will look noticeably better.
Massage In Your Moisturizer
When we say massage, we mean massage. Rather than dabbing on your face cream, use gentle pressure, massaging it into your skin in a circular motion. Do the same when you wash your face. This simple trick will kick your circulation into high gear. Plus, it feels so good.

Pop a SPOT
Shhhh…you didn’t here it from us, but popping a pimple can actually be OK sometimes, if you do it the right (not-scar-inducing) way! Spots always seem to show up when you’re already stressed, so don’t take out your existing troubles on your poor, helpless face. Only give the spot a squeeze if it’s white on top. Using two cotton swabs, gently press on both sides of the little sucker until it pops. Once you’ve cleaned off the gunk, dab a salicylic acid treatment on top.
