From Dry to Dewy

5 Tips for Dry Winter Skin

Winter elements and indoor heat can be incredibly stripping to the skin.  If your skin is feeling rough, fragile, or flaky, here are 5 tips to take your skin from dry to dewy in no time.


Get enough sleep.  During sleep, blood flow to your skin increases to help rebuild collagen and repair UV damage that causes wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.  There's a good reason why it's called beauty sleep.

Eat these foods - fatty fish, avocados, nuts, sesame seeds, green tea, dark leafy greens, citrus fruits and dark chocolate (yes!) are full of beneficial nutrients for your body and skin.

Cleanse your skin properly.  While it's a cardinal sin to skip cleansing before bedtime, over cleansing or using the wrong cleanser is just as bad.  Remove makeup with an oil based cleanser and then follow up a gentle cleanser.  Our DIVINE Cleanser is soothing, ultra pH- balanced, and formulated with pearl powder + lactic acid to gently exfoliate the skin.

Mask at least once a week.  Winter is the perfect time to up your mask game.  A good mask helps to intensely repair and nourish dry skin.  The DIVINE Biocellulose mask is infused with Chinese medicinal plants and peptides to give dry, fatigued skin a refreshed glow.

Include EFAs (essential fatty acids) in your skincare.  Dry skin tends to be deficient in EFAs, an important nutrient to promote a healthy skin barrier and prevent TEWL (trans epidermal water loss).  Apply an oil-based serum that's high in omegas and lipid-based nutrients to get your skin supple and dewy.
