Well guess who decided to finally show up? You guessed it, winter!
The wind, dipping temps and indoor heating are the perfect cocktail for dry skin. It was definitely time for me to pull out my arsenal of skin care products. Ladies today I’m sharing with you my favorite products that not only replenish moisture but also make me feel super girly and pampered!
For my body care I love using Soap & Glory products. The body wash “Clean On Me” is formulated with natural mandarin peel extract and a built in body lotion. The scent is so awesome and leaves my skin feeling luxurious. Right after I shower with damp skin I apply their award winning “Righteous Butter” lotion. Its made with Shea butter, almond oil and vitamin E. I’m seriously addicted to this lotion and cant live with out it!
When it comes to dry lips I use Maybelline’s cult favorite Baby Lips! Its formulated with vitamin E and Shea Butter and I love how it stays on! I tend to suffer from dry, scaly hands during the winter months. The only thing that works for me is Burt’s Bees Wax Hand Crème. Its super duper concentrated so a little dab will do and the almond scent is out of this world. I swear people in my office think I have a problem with sniffing my hands, little do they know its the almond scent that I cant get enough of!
During the winter my face also requires extra hydration and I’ve discovered a Korean skin care brand called Belif. I use the True Cream Aqua Bomb moisturizer. It provides a burst of intense hydration that has been clinically tested to provide up to 26 hours of moisture. I love the cooling sensation as my skin absorbs it. I absolutely adore this moisturizer and hope to try more of their products in the future.
Oh and before I forget here are some more tips for dry winter skin:
- use a humidifier at night near your bedside.
- make sure to drink plenty of water
- avoid using really hot water when you shower
