I woke up on Christmas Eve with the cold to end all colds. Two weeks later and I'm still trying to kick it. To make matters worse, I'm writing this during winter storm Grayson which has already dumped more than eight inches of snow on my house. To say I've experienced the worst of winter from head to toe would be an understatement. It's time for me to break out those super-effective products I use sparingly all year and replace as often as necessary. From dry, static-y hair to chapped lips and dry skin, winter has wreaked just about enough havoc, thankyouverymuch.
So without further ado, I give you my favorite winter beauty remedies, treatments and tool to combat the worst of winter... (sorry, genie to shovel out your car not included.)
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream: One of my go-to beauty tricks is slathering myself with lotion the minute I hop out of the shower. Trapping what little moisture I can get my hands on is the key to avoiding flaky skin.
Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask: My face is always the first to show any signs of distress. You could say I'm not really good at hiding my feelings when it comes to winter. Or seasonal changes of any kind really.
Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy: Chapped lips is usually the first sign of dehydration for me so to combat that, I make sure I have a heavy duty balm to combat the cold and any signs of chapped lips.
Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield: What works for me in the summer does double-duty for me in winter. This hairspray is pretty reliable when it comes to taming flyaways, wispies and any other annoying hair habits.
MoistureSurge Overnight Mask: Sometimes your everyday moisturizer just doesn't cut it. For those times, allow me to recommend this mask you can sleep in. Because who doesn't want to get beauty rest while your products do all the work?
MUK LUKS Crew Socks with Aloe: As a ballerina, I depended on these socks to keep my feet soft. Now I just love them for trapping moisture and keeping my feet warm on cold nights. They also double as great boot socks on days where I have light errands to do.
Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil: A little hair oil works wonders on dry ends when static is rampant. And one that works on everything from cuticles to elbows is a winner in my book.
Philosophy Hands of Hope Hand and Cuticle Cream: I like to be sure that I always have a remedy for dry hands when I'm on the go. Philosophy's product line is so reliable that having a portable option is a huge relief to my mind and my hands.
R+Co Women's Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste: A friend introduced me to this product and it's officially the best texturizing product and dry shampoo I have ever put my hands on. Literally. No greasy roots, no flat strands, no sad face.
