I created a skincare routine for Rio that will combat dry skin for the colder months. Check out my tips!

Every fall I have to develop a skincare routine that will combat dry skin. I often find that the colder months can leave the entire family with extra dry skin. I found Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Collection for Rio and now I’m actually hooked on using it for the entire family. The Baby Soothing Relief Moisture formula is non-greasy and absorbs quickly. I always look for products that absorb quickly because there’s nothing worse than getting your clothes covered in lotion. I also use the Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash on Rio since it’s hydrating, and leaves skin feeling moisturized for 24 hours.
Here is a list of my favorite ways to tackle dry skin:
Water: Cold weather, harsh winds, and dry indoor air all conspire to suck the moisture out of skin during the winter months, leaving it dry, cracked, and scaly. Hydrating your body is a must which is why I reach for the water as much as possible. If you’re a nursing mama, this is another reason to drink water. Keep your baby hydrated.
Baths: If baths are your jam then think twice about soaking in hot temperatures especially if the baby is involved. I find that oatmeal baths are perfect for moisturizing and relaxing. If you’re washing your little one then reach for the Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash which contains natural colloidal oatmeal and leaves baby’s skin feeling moisturized for 24 hours.
Humidifier: Use a humidifier to keep moisture in your home or keep a bowl of water on your radiators to add moisture to the air. The higher the heat indoors, the less humidity there will be. If you’re like me then you’re blasting the heat in the winter months, so the humidity will aid in keeping skin from drying out.
Exfoliate: One of my favorite things to do in the winter is to create a skin scrub out of products in my kitchen. I use natural ingredients and it’s great for exfoliating any dead skin that I might have on my lips or body. My go-to recipe is honey, brown sugar and olive oil. Mix it up and add it to a small airtight container that you can keep in the bathroom. London really loves this particular recipe because it tastes great (but try not to eat it).
Every year I incorporate these tips into my skincare routine to keep our skin hydrated and moisturized. Do you have any other skin tips? I would love to hear about it so leave me a comment below.
