How to Get Glowing Skin in the Winter in 5 Easy Steps

There’s a lot to look forward to during the winter. For one thing, the holidays are a great time to get some amazing deals on beauty gift sets, and for another, it’s the perfect time to experiment with glittering gold nail art or frosty eye makeup looks. Of course, the season is not without its cons, and dry, flaky and lackluster skin is at the top of our list of gripes. Despite the weather, we’re dedicated to achieving glowing skin all year. Here, we’re sharing our top five tips for  treating dry skin and getting a luminous finish, even during the winter.   

TIP 1: Moisturize

Before creating your glowing winter makeup look, you need to focus on moisturizing your skin. We recommend using a formula like the Garnier Green Labs Pinea-C Brightening Serum Cream SPF 30 that helps illuminate as it nourishes. Because it’s a three-in-one formula (serum, moisturizer and sunscreen), you’ll be able to get to the fun part, makeup, even quicker. 


TIP 2: Moisturize Your Body

Don’t skimp on giving your body some necessary nourishment. We’re obsessed with the Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Shea Soufflé because it moisturizes and softens skin and smells delicious. 

TIP 3: Use an Illuminating Foundation

If your natural complexion isn’t quite as glowy as you want it to be, the right foundation can help get you there. The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Foundation + Skincare provides medium coverage with a radiant finish, plus it contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract and vitamins E and B5 to help improve skin tone and texture while you wear it.


TIP 4: Use a Liquid Face Highlighter

Powder products can make dry skin look even drier, so in the winter, you may want to reach for liquid highlighter. The NYX Professional Makeup California Beamin’ Face And Body Liquid Highlighter is a hydrating, shimmery formula that’ll give you a megawatt glow. Apply on the high points of the face or mix it in with your foundation for an all-over boost.

TIP 5: Don’t Forget About Your Hair  

Your hair is the cherry on top of any makeup look, and cold weather is likely taking a toll on it, too. Luckily, it’s nothing the Garnier Fructis Hydrating Treat Hair Mask With Aloe Extract can’t handle. This one-minute hair mask helps to restore your hair’s softness and shine to match your glowing winter skin.
