While winter is almost behind us, spending an afternoon enjoying the great outdoors can still take a toll on your skin. Temperatures are beginning to rise, but the air is still dry and my skin is begging for more pampering. Therefore, I’m ramping up my skincare game and making a mental note to exfoliate once a week in order to have my skin ready to be on display come spring.
