How to Hydrate Dry Facial Skin

Every year when the long winter season hits, I dread dealing with my dry, itchy skin. Especially the dry patches on my face. For me, the worst dry spots tend to be around my mouth, nose and the rest of my T-Zone. I tend to have combination/oily skin, but during the winter months, my skin dries out without proper skincare.

I used to think that the only way to treat dry facial skin was to lather on all of the products and moisturizers after every shower. Sometimes even throughout the day. I used to layer on every moisturizer and lotion, even after I had already applied make-up.

Let’s not talk about how that didn’t turn out to be the right solution. These days I’m doing things from the inside out and using a new Olay product that is the perfect winter skin solution. I’ve noticed that my healthy eating habits is not only helping my overall body, it’s great for things like my hair growth and skin texture. Along with eating whole foods, I’ve definitely been more cognizant of drinking more water which helps my hydration and skin health internally.

If you’re looking to figure out a solution on how to hydrate dry facial skin, then this is it. Olay Whips makes it easy for me so that I don’t have to choose between a product that provides powerful results, but feels sticky + tacky, or one that feels truly lightweight, but doesn’t offer much beyond basic hydration. It is formulated differently so that it works and feels differently on our facial skin.

The moisturizer’s unique Active Rush Technology™ holds and quickly releases 1000x its weight in hydration and active ingredients. I really like that the powerful hydration has a smooth matte finish that feels light and airy. My skin feels hydrated without any greasy layers.

I use the Olay Whips on the days that my skin is super dry. It’s a great addition to my daily skincare with the extra benefits during the winter season.

Check out Olay Whips of your favorite Olay moisturizer and let me know how much you like the light, airy texture without sacrificing the hydration.
