- Start with the base
Harsh winter winds can be so brutal on your face. Avoid cracking and breaking out by using a nightly facial moisturizer or right before you put foundation on in the morning. Begin by washing your face with warm water to open up your pores and then massage Laura Mercier’s rose-scented nourishing oil on your face. If you’re looking for something a little more affordable or unscented, try Kiehls’ highly rated moisturizer lotion. Both these products will keep you soft and glowy all day long.2. Moisturizing foundation
Switch out your mattifying foundation for the cold season! Try a liquid foundation with some built in moisturizer to keep your skin looking even and poreless all day long. Try NARS’ tinted moisturizer for medium coverage or if you’re looking for something for full-coverage, try MAC’s silky face and body foundation.
3. Add extra moisture to your hair
The cold winds can be brutal on your hair too. Treat yourself to a moisturizing hair masque to keep your locks looking silky and shiny. Lush’s Jasmine and Henna Fluff is a luxurious hair and scalp treatment that you only have to wear for 20 minutes to revitalize dry hair—which also smells fantastic. Or for something you can apply every day, try their R&B hair moisturizer which will strengthen your hair and bring it back to life.
4. Great lotion for all skin types
Don’t let your skin become dry and scaly this season! Stock up on some super hydrating crème for the winter. Try Avene’s super luxurious and hydrating crème or for something more affordable, get Nivea’s 48 hour lotion.
5. Cure for chapped lips
The dependable, classic Burt’s Bees will save your lips this winter. Packed with loads of vitamin C and E. For really sore and chapped lips, Sugar will be your savior. They’ve got loads of shades if you feel like tinting your lips too.
