Tried and true winter shower routine!
My skin just can’t win during the winter. Between cold winter air, piping-hot showers, and artificial heat my skin has been stripped of almost ALL it’s moisture (luckily I’ve been addicted to my homemade, flavored waters). I’m so glad to have finally perfected my 3 step winter shower routine to help keep my skin hydrated and soft all through winter. The last thing I want in the New Year is cracking, ashy skin. If you’re feeling stripped dry this winter, keep reading to see my top 3 winter shower routine products to defeat dry, dehydrated skin!
My most important tip in order to defeat dry, dehydrated skin is to layer up on moisture. My trifecta of moisture starts with Nivea Creme Smooth Moisturizing Body Wash, followed up by L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil, and finishes with Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This winter shower routine works best for me because it’s easy and super hydrating.
Nivea Creme Smooth Moisturizing Body Wash
Just as the name suggests, this body wash is smooth and creamy. I love that it makes my skin clean without stripping it for that artificial “squeaky clean” feeling. In fact, it actually makes my skin feel smoother and supple even after rinsing.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil
My new favorite! What started out as a Sephora winter VIB sale impulse buy has turned in a LOVED repurchase. I love that this is a cleansing oil. It lathers once mixed with the water on your skin and washes away leaving only smooth skin behind. And it doesn’t make the shower slippery!
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Bum Bum Cream is a crazy name for my favorite body butter. This is the PERFECt final step to my winter shower routine. It has a rich texture that is not too heavy and a slightly sweet scent that leaves me soft and smelling of toffee. This cream is not just for your bum bum. I use this all over my body for a moisturized and toned feeling after the shower.
