A's Winter Beauty Essentials

Don't you all hate the dry, rough, and chapped lips/skin that comes with the temperatures of the winter months? Here are a few of our favorite beauty essentials to survive the winter with feeling smooth and hydrated. 

My lip saver: Nivea Lip Care Essentials Kit. I got this adorable little set in my stocking for Christmas and I've been hooked ever since. Inside are "A Touch of Smoothness", which hydrates,  "A Kiss of Shimmer", which creates a radiant looking lip,  and "A Kiss of Milk & Honey", which soothes. All three products work together to create healthy looking and feeling lips. Also- all three have an SPF of 10!

My hair saver: Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo. During the winter, my scalp tends to get incredibly dry when I wash my hair every day (or sometimes every other day). At the same time, if I keep my hair down for an entire day, by the end of the day it feels greasy and I feel like I need to wash it. Its kind of like a vicious cycle and this product provides the perfect balance for me. I sprinkle this product near the roots of my hair, let it sit for 3-5 minutes, and then rub it into the rest of my hair with my fingertips to do away with any gray residue (it looks like baby powder so it leaves a bit of a gray tint). Love this product!

My skin saver: Olay Total Effects Daily Moisturizer. So I admit, my discovery of this amazing moisturizer happened after randomly finding a free sample in my house. I decided to try and see what would happen if I put it on a pimple before I went to bed and when I woke up, the pimple was gone! Then, I applied it to my whole face before bed the next night and I woke up to perfectly radiant and hydrated skin. Also- it doesn't hurt to start using anti-aging products now...hah! (Did I mention that I am terrified of wrinkles?!)

Has anyone else had similar experiences with these products? Care to share some of your favorite winter skin remedies?

  1. Nivea chapstick is always in my bag! And a weird winter remedy I love is Gold Bond foot cream for cracked heels.
