Taking Care of your dry skin this winter

Taking care of your

 

With winter comes wonderful family get together, cozy sweaters, crock pot meals and unfortunately dry parched skin.

Here are some of my tips on keeping your skin hydrated and healthy this holiday season,

Drink more water! The more the better. Toss in a few cups of herbal peppermint tea to keep it festive!

Exfoliate! I like to use my Clairisonic at least once a day, its water proof, so I keep mine in the shower to save time.

Moisturize the heck out of your skin I like Valentia Even Glow Serum. Its loaded with vitamin C, which brightens up your skin, and feels amazing. It is a little thick, which is great for winter dryness. My skin feels so smooth and amazing! And it smells delicious!!

Speaking of moisturizing, don’t forget the fragile skin around your eyes, Since I am obsessed with Vitamin C skin creams I tried Valentia True Glow Eye Cream and I was just as tickled with it as with my serum. It has that same yummy smell and just disappears into my skin, leaving my eyes feeling refreshed and bright.

Use a humidifier at night. This helps with both moisture AND anti aging. I use mine year round.

How do you change your skin care routine for the winter?

Peloton Bike Update

As promised, here is an update on my experience owning a Peloton Bike.

I have had the bike now for about a month, and I am still in love with it as ever! It has been amazing having it here in my house being able to join a live class or stream from the library when ever I want to. The only hiccup I had was the shoes, I ordered a pair from Peloton using their size recommendations, and they were way too small, the pair ended up fitting my daughter, so she kept them and I ordered another pair off amazon following their sizing chart, they arrived, too small again! I was so frustrated. In the end, I headed to a local bike shop to get a pair i could try on, but in the process I bought 3 pairs of shoes!

Now that I am all set with my gear, I tend to ride pretty much every day. What is great about the streaming classes is even if I don’t have a lot of time there is usually a class I can fit in, from 15 minute beginner classes, up to 45 minutes theme rides they have it.

My husband likes the metric rides the best, he feels like the hills and weights give him the best work outs, I like the music themed classes. The Justin Timberlake vs NSync ride with Cody is my favorite so far! He’s amazing and motivating and the music keeps me into it. I did make some adjustments to our home gym area. It helped me to install some room darkening curtains, that way I did not get any glare and it felt more like a ride at one of the studios. It made a big difference for me as far as really focusing on the class.

If you remember from my original post, I love me some SoulCycle, I was a little worried that Peloton would not live up to my experiences in a SoulCycle studio, but it has! I just love being able to get a spin class of this quality in my home! Totally recommend getting your own bike.
