Gone are the long days of sundresses, shorts, and sun-kissed skin. Winter has set in, and whipping winds, dry air, and chilly temperatures can really do a number on your beautiful, soft skin. Don’t worry – we have you covered! Here are a few tips for you to prevent chapping, redness, itching, and keep skin more healthy and comfortable this season. Moisturize This one’s a must! The dry, cold air will suck all the moisture out of your skin and leave you feeling dry and scaly. To avoid this, you should apply lotion immediately after a warm shower to help lock in moisture and keep skin soft and smooth. The type of moisturizer matters as well! Choose products that are oil-based instead of water-based, as it will nourish skin from the inside and help balance natural oil production. L.A. Bikini has just what you need! Phenomen-all™ is a super-hydrating lotion that works well for all skin types. A tiny drop of Phenomen-all added to body lotion or and your facial moisturizer will ensure your skin receives the hydration it needs this winter. And for those who need something stronger, just use Phenomen-all as a moisturizer all by itself! It’s perfect for combating dry skin – just make sure to really massage it into the skin so that it’s absorbed well. Learn more about Phenomen-all. Exfoliate Exfoliating removes dead skin cells and reveals newer, healthier-looking skin. Sugaring is a safe, gentle, and effective exfoliate that leaves your skin feeling refreshed. You can get Dead Sea Salt exfoliate at L.A. Bikini in Mountain Brook or Hoover! We recommend exfoliating your skin two to three times per week for the best skin texture you’ve ever had. Spray Tan Unless you’re lucky enough to be headed on a tropical vacation, most of us won’t be soaking up the rays for a few more months.
