Now that the cold weather has begun, is your skin feeling tight, dry, and a little dull? Here are some tips to keep your skin looking hydrated, dewy, and plump all winter long!
EXFOLIATION IS KEY
Don’t forget to keep exfoliating your skin – even if it is dry. Exfoliation is going to help remove the dry, flaky, dead skin cells to help reveal the fresh, glowing skin beneath. Also, if not properly exfoliated, this will act as a barrier to your corrective and hydrating products meaning you’re not getting the full benefits of them. You can use a physical or chemical exfoliant 2-3 times per week to keep your skin looking healthy.

Gently massage a small amount onto damp skin and wash off revealing brighter, smoother skin!
SkinBetter Science AlphaRet Peel Pads
Gently apply in small, circular motions to the face, neck, and décolleté. Do not rinse off – apply your moisturizer after a few minutes.
Apply to clean, dry skin at night all over your face. Go to sleep with the enzyme on and wake up to glass-like skin!
MOISTURIZE. MOISTURIZE. MOISTURIZE!
If you already moisturize on a regular basis, you’ll probably want to opt for a moisturizer with deeper hydration. You’ll want to make sure your moisturizer is loaded with ingredients that will address dehydration and will strengthen the skin barrier to keep your skin from looking blotchy and parched. At Boss Gal, we have a few you can choose from.

NEED EXTRA HYDRATION?
If you’re still feeling a little dry, add a Hyaluronic Acid serum to your routine.
