Is Winter Ruining Your Complexion?

Here in southeastern PA we are in the chilly throes of winter. We got a record-breaking foot of snow yesterday, and I've been informed it's only -13 degrees outside! I'm ready for some balmy temps in the 40s! Yes, I know it's winter and this is what winter does, but this is getting crazy. Add to this to my poor dry face, and I'm ready to stay in bed with a good book until spring!

How about you? Are you having winter skin woes? My face is dry, red, and blotchy in places. I've exfoliated and used my good skin serums, but my face isn't responding well. I've never had this issue before, so I wasn't sure what to do. Vaseline, maybe??

I had a small sample of Josie Maran's Argan Oil from Sephora, which I figured was for smoothing hair, and after my bath on a whim I dabbed the oil on my face the other night, and again last night. It's quite dry in my house and I haven't been drinking enough water. 

Today, my skin is noticeably less dry and red, and the blotchy spots have gone down considerably.  I only have a dab left and will need to order some. I think this is going to be my answer. 

In addition to the Argan Oil, I need to stay on top of my 5 glasses of water a day along with my brewed pot of Tevana herbal teas and gently cleansing my skin. 

So how are you faring with this harsh winter dryness? Have you used Argan Oil?
