Although winter has just begun, we are already suffering with dry skin and chapped lips. Here are my five top picks for your winter-skin care routine to keep your skin moisturized and hydrated:
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
Laura Mercier’s award-winning tinted moisturizer provides sheer coverage for a healthy and natural look. It is lightweight, adding a soft colour for a no-makeup look. It is not oxidizing, staying colour-true, perfect for all day! It can be used as a tinted sunscreen as it has SPF 20 UVB/UVA. It also contains antioxidant vitamins C and E to protect your skin from environmental damage. You can apply it either with clean fingertips or with an egg-shaped sponge.
Lavanila The Healthy Body Butter Pure Vanilla
The Healthy Body Butter is completely free of chemicals as it is made with organic ingredients. It is paraben-free and its body beneficial botanicals allow for faster absorption that provide a deeply hydrated, soft and scented skin.
Nivea Lip Butter
Tired of sore and cracked lips? I know, winter weather can be pretty harsh on you. Keeping a good lip butter on hand is important in order to provide instant moisture. Nivea Lip Butter comes in 4 scents: Original, vanilla/macadamia, caramel cream and raspberry rose. They smell divine, stay on all night until and keep your lips smooth and well moisturized. The only downside is the packaging as it can be difficult to use the product if your fingers are dirty from fingers as it is not very hygienic.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30
The fact that it is winter does not necessarily mean that the sun won’t damage your skin. It is quite important to hydrate your skin but also defend it against the UVA and UVB rays. This Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer Sunscreen absorbs easily into skin and protects it from sun damage that is often associated with early signs of aging. However, it is not water resistant so you should reapply it every 2 hours. It is lightweight, absorbs readily, leaving your skin smooth and soft. Highly recommended for all skin types.
Dove Pure Care Dry Restorative Hair Treatment
Dove Pure Care Dry Oil is thin, silky and adds has a nutty scent. It strengthens, smooths and tames frizz your hair without making it greasy. Rub one or two drops through the wet ends and on unruly spots after they’re dry.
