My Winter Skincare Routine for my very dry skin – it works!

I have incredibly dry skin, and Cleveland winters do nothing to help that. Back in Pakistan, my skin was probably best described as combination skin; it even got a bit oily in the summers.

Here in the USA, however, it is usually drier than the Sahara, and painfully parched in the colder months.

So, to make sure I don’t get any lines, wrinkles, dry patches, cracked lips, pimples, and a myriad of other skin problems in the winter, I have devised this skincare routine to keep my skin looking healthy and hydrated. I have mentioned which products I use mainly at night.

Side note: I guess this goes without saying, but please drink water no matter what skin type you have. It does a ton of sh!t for your skin and body besides quenching your thirst. Thank you. PSA over.
