How to Avoid Drying Out This Winter Without Sending Your Skin Into a Tizzy

How to Avoid Drying Out This Winter Without Sending Your Skin Into a Tizzy

We did it! We made it to the start of a whole new year, full of glowy skin promises and healthy choices. But it is winter after all, so those dewy dreams may need a little extra help. What we need now is an easy skin routine that refreshes like a tall glass of water, but won’t cause us to go into oil overdrive. Here’s our dream-come-true combo of products and tricks for hydrating dry winter skin without causing a pore panic.

Start from Within

We all know it: what you put in your body (we’re looking at you, 3rd glass of wine) can affect your skin. Start by eating balanced, nutritious foods with plenty of good fats (seriously), and avoiding too much sugar and alcohol. And of course, drink water like there’s no tomorrow.

FlashMasque® Hydrate 5 Minute Sheet Mask

Consider this super-hydrating mask your SOS for parched skin. When you’re in desperate need of moisture, our proprietary HydraSurge5 Moisture System comes to the rescue. Packed with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, softening and smoothing vitamin B5, and moisture-retaining Betaine, it penetrates deep into the skin to combat dehydration. Get all the moisture—with none of the greasiness—in five minutes flat.

Dream Hydration

This one’s so easy, you can truly do it in your sleep. Step up the moisture factor overnight without loading your face with a lot of pore-cloggingly heavy products by plugging in a humidifier. Dryness doesn’t stand a chance.

AquaFlash™ Daily Gel Moisturizer

After bringing back the moisture to your skin, you’re going to want to seal in all the goodness. Enter: Our ultra-hydrating gel moisturizer. Hyaluronic Acid, powerful antioxidants, wrinkle-reducing Vitamin B5, and soothing Aloe Extract flood skin without clogging pores or feeling sticky.

FlashPatch® Hydrating Lip Gels

Raise your hand if your lips are chapped year-round, but especially chapped in the winter (raises hand). Our hydrating and anti-aging formula takes care of that for you in just five minutes. No more flakes ruining perfectly good lipstick.

ZZZs, Please

Getting fewer than your essential 8 hours a night can cause your skin to over-produce oil, which then traps dirt and dead cells in your pores, leading to breakouts. Turns out, beauty sleep is no fairytale.
