I'm sure that just by reading the title of this post, you most likely let out a groan in solidarity. Winter skin is the absolute worst. It's a fact. I live in Massachusetts, which means I get to deal with the joys of dry itchy skin for a good six months. Recently, I've developed a new nighttime routine with the hope of keeping winter skin at bay. With the help of Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus body wash, my new routine is working out perfectly.
Given that winter turns me into a hermit of sorts (I swear I take one step inside the door after work and all energy/motivation is lost), I decided to start showering at night instead of the morning. I've been a morning shower person my entire life, but I recently found myself really rushing to get out the door... which meant almost every day I was forgetting my wallet, laptop charger, or lunch.
I may be new to nighttime showering, but I'm loving it. It's become a part of my day that I really enjoy, instead of something that I have to do in order to go about my day. Part of the reason why I love it so much is because:
A.) I actually have time to exfoliate and shave
B.) I've switched to skincare products that help combat my dry winter skin. Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus body wash is made up of cleansers and moisturizers (shea butter!) which clean and hydrate my skin.
I lather up with either a puff or exfoliating gloves, and I swear I noticed a difference in my skin after the first use. Typically, my skin becomes dry and tight moments after I leave the shower. After using Olay for the first time I was surprised to find my skin feeling comfortable and soothed. I also want to note that the Manuka Honey and Lavender scents are to die for. Both are so relaxing and comforting after a day at work!
After showering I'll change into some cozy clothes and make a cup of tea to cap off my routine. Okay, let's keep it real: my routine isn't truly complete until I relax with some online browsing/shopping.
If you're looking for ways to combat dry skin, I hope you'll participate in Olay's Winter Skin Challenge. Try Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus for softer and more moisturized skin. This moisturizing body wash has changed my skin for the better during the cold winter months and I hope others will love it as much as I do!
