Transcript for Best tips to keep skin glowing as temperatures drop
I do my hair Time now for a skin care switchup. With cold weather and whipping winds on the way it's time to protect and hydrate. Dr. Whitney Bowe is here with her best tips to keep your skin glowing into the fall. Good morning to you. Good morning, my dear. Thank you for being with us. This is something so many of us struggle with. Yeah. It starts to get cold. It gets dry. Your skin is dry and cracking, what can you do to keep it from looking gross? There are three main things you want to really keep in mind. When it comes to transitioning your skin care, so, first, you got to moisturize the right way. You want to be really careful when it comes to exfoliating your skin and last nourish and hydrate your skin from the inside out through your diet. Okay, so that's good to know. A lot of products promise to moisturize your skin but what's the best way to do it? I'll give you one of my favorite tips when it comes to trapping moisture in the skin. What you want to do is you want to layer your skin care so give me your hands, so put a couple of drops of a thinner lightweight product like a serum. Now, rub that in. That should go on first, and then when you follow that, you want to follow it with a thicker richer cream like this one so you want to put this on top. That is so nice. Those two steps really traps in that moisture. And also I brought a humidifier with me so we've talked about this before, Eva. But I love humidifiers. As soon as I turn on the heat in the house, I always break out the humidifier. I want to use a cool mist humidifier. The one that use hot water can be a safety hazard like I do and you might have noticed I brought my sunscreen. You always have sunscreen. I wear sunscreen, guys, rain or shine all year round. It's easy to layer with sunscreens now because they're made -- this one is a primer and a sunscreen. Give me your other hand. So feel this one. Rub it in. It just goes on so easily. It's got a matte finish. It grips your makeup. There's no excuse not to layer. It does make your hand look like it has an instant filter on it. To help with moisturizing, adjust the temperature in the shower. You don't want to have hot water. Lukewarm is the way to go. All right, so exfoliate and a lot of us overexfoliate. We all want to exfoliate all the dry skin off. How much. I love exfoliating. It brightens the skin. You don't want to overdo it. See how scratchy that is against the skin. Something you don't want to use. These instruments, I never use them. I use my fingertips. When it comes to scrubs, I love a good scrub and love making a DIY with sugar and salt. Feel it between your fingers. Those grains, when you can feel the particles, that's not okay for your face or neck. That is way too abrasive. Eva, get that off your face. This is for like cracked heels. When it comes to exfoliating your face, you want to use products that contain things like glycolic acid, lactic acid, those will gently and evenly exfoliate the skin of your neck and face. Just because it says acid doesn't mean it's going to burn your face off. They can be gentle and shouldn't burn. That means you're overexfoliating. Aside from different products what are other ways to nourish your skin? I know you talked about from the inside. You want to think about hydrating and nourishing, of course, drink your water. But about 20% of our water comes from the foods that we eat so load up on fruits and veggies with an emphasis on veggies because fruits contain sugar, right, and sugar is not good for your skin. Berries are lower in sugar so those are okay, but you want to focus on cucumbers, leafy greens and fiber and Put them on your eyes and eat them too. Ideally. All good advice and hopefully we'll have glowing skin going into the fall and winter. Very nice.
