Am I the only one who’s ready for spring? Unfortunately, we have many more bitter cold days ahead and more reason to switch up your beauty regimen. If you’re still using the same face moisturizer, body lotion and hair treatment that you used during the summer, it’s time to start shopping.
During the winter, your skin loses a lot of moisture because of cold air, wind and even indoor heat. That’s why it’s so important to change your routine and choose heavier moisturizers like body butters and oils. Here are some of my favorite winter beauty buys:
FOR YOUR HAIR
Josie Maran 100 percent Pure Argan Oil. Price: $14.00 (0.5 oz) — This Moroccan oil is rich in vitamin E and can be used as a daily moisturizer as well as treating split ends and softening cuticles.
FOR YOUR FACE
Carol’s Daughter Açai Winter Dry Skincare Set. Price: $58.00 — A great product for extra dry skin with acai, which helps to protect, moisturize and reduce the signs of aging. The set includes a hydrating foam cleanser, hydrating exfoliating toner and hydrating face butter.
FOR YOUR BODY
Palmer’s Fragrance Free Cocoa Butter. Price: $6.49 — This is an oldie but goodie. It’s a rich cocoa lotion that’s hypoallergenic for sensitive skin and helps to smooth stretch marks and scars. Unlike the original Palmer’s Cocoa Butter, this fragrance free version won’t have you smelling like a candy bar.
FOR YOUR LIPS
Burt’s Bees Lip Balm Replenishing Pomegranate. Price: $3.56 — This healing lip balm is made from natural ingredients like beeswax, camphor, menthol, clove oil, anise, eucalyptus, spearmint and lemon balm. It works to restore dry, chapped lips and protect from dry, cold and windy climate.
FOR YOUR FEET
L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream. Price: $12 — This moisturizing foot butter is enriched with 15% shea butter, soothing lavender essential oil and anti-inflammatory arnica extract. It works to smooth and soften skin while relieving tired achy feet.
