I’ve received so many comments and messages about how great my skin looked after posting last Monday’s motivational video in my kitchen without makeup on. (Thanks so much!) If you’ve been following the blog or YouTube channel for a while you know all the different products I swear by. If not, browse through my Beauty Video Playlist and check out all the different products I love. But, here are 3 simple things I always add during winter to keep my skin hydrated– especially now that we live in a climate that actually has winter temperatures.
1) DRINK MORE WATER AND HERBAL TEAS.
Water increases cell hydration, but the antioxidants in the herbal teas actually help by detoxifying the entire body especially the kidney and liver so your skin (which is also an organ) can function properly. One of my favorites is Tazo’s mint tea.
2) ADD OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS TO YOUR DIET.
Add Omega 3 by eating more fish like salmon or simply taking a good Omega 3 supplement. They are vital for healthy skin and helps regulate oil production in your skin. Having plenty of this essential fatty acid in your system keeps your skin hydrated and prevents it from drying and flaking. You can find great supplements everywhere from Target to Whole Foods.
3) KEEP YOUR HOME HUMID.
The heaters will dry everything out from you throat, nostrils, eyes and skin. Adding humidity to combat the dryness will do wonders for you. Use a humidifier or even a large bowl of water sitting close by will add moisture to the air and keep your skin from getting dry and dull.
I am so ready for Spring!
P.S. If you’re in the DFW area, come join us for the 2nd Annual Night Of Vision in Carrolton on Sat, Feb 7th. I’m honored to be a speaker and share how VISION BOARDS have been a pivotal tool in my life. Then we’ll have fun creating our boards!

can you recommend a good all day moisture. I’m 71 and play lots of golf, so am outside all day
If you’re outside that much I highly recommend a moisturizer with an SPF of 50. My favorite is by Physicians Formula (CVS, Target, Ulta, etc) called “Healthy Wear Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 50”. I love the hint of color in to even out skintone.
thank you. I would like to see information regarding fashion for us in our 70’s. I am 4 11 and love to look fashionable. I feel younger.
Needed this….uugghh my dry, crack’n skin – yuk!
Thanks for the tips!
Hopefully, my schedule will allow me to attend “Night of Vision”!
any advice for sun spots?
Sunspots.. grrrr. I deal with them too and get a photo facial (IPL) once or twice a year which zaps them. My girlfriend has a medspa called SkinSpaMed (by the galleria) and usually runs specials on the IPL. Then for daily maintenance I use serums like Epicuren Glycolic lotion or Hard Night Good Morning’s serum. Hope that helps and hope you can make it to the Night of Vision!
