3 expert skin care tips to nourish winter-worn skin in Houston
When winter kicks in, it's not just our wardrobes that need a refresh, but also our beauty routines. It is time to invest in skincare essentials to ensure skin stays healthy and resilient against the chilly weather.
"As seasons change, so do our skin needs. What stays constant is the importance of proper cleaning, hydration, and nutrition, says LeBrina Jackson, owner of the Houston-area Escape Spa. "Paying attention to these core needs throughout the seasons will ensure your skin is optimized and ready to thrive and glow."

One of the biggest challenges during winter is spending time indoors with heaters cranked up. Combined with lower humidity levels, this can leave skin feeling dry and looking dull. Thankfully, this doesn't mean a complete overhaul of coveted products. According to Jackson, all beauty aficionados need are reliable staples to keep skin glowing and dewy until spring.
To help with a winter skincare haul, Jackson recommends three of her favorite products to integrate into any cold-weather routine.
This sheer silky tinted moisturizer will make your skin feel like butter. Not only is it a great SPF, but it's also packed with vitamins and amazing UVA and UVB protection. It enhances texture and complexion and provides barriers to protect skin from blue light, pollution, and heat.
