If you’re lucky enough to be heading to a snowy destination this holiday season, your skin may be in for a shock, thanks to the extreme temperatures. Avoid skin surprises with our handy guide to keeping your cheeks rosy and your skin glowing while you prance about in a winter wonderland.
If the dry air has got your skin feeling drier than usual, apply a revitalizing cream at night to restore your glow. Exuviance Ultra Restorative Cream is packed with meadowfoam seed oil and algae extract to repair and renew your skin. It will also plump up wrinkles and even out your skin tone, which means you won’t have to pack as much makeup. Less makeup equals more room for holiday shopping!
Don’t forget your sunscreen. It’s easy to forget to protect your skin from the sun, especially if you are surrounded by the snow or cloudy weather. Murad Absolute Bronzing Boost is an oil-free, liquid bronzer that will keep you protected and give you a healthy glow that will ensure all eyes stay on you.
Cold, dry winter air is notorious for causing brittle, dry hair. Salvage straw-like strands by using a deep treatment. SachaJuan Over Night Hair Repair is a gel-based mask that contains glycerin, seaweed extracts and geranium extract. Apply a little at night for softer, smoother, shinier locks.
Sure, it’s cold outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept dry, rough skin that resembles and alligator’s! Kiss dry, flakey skin goodbye by using a gentle scrub like Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub. This scrub uses natural rice and bamboo exfoliators to gently buff your skin and is full of goodies like sweet almond, macadamia and wheat germ oil to hydrate and treat it.
Chapped lips are another common side effect of cold weather. That last thing you want to do on your holiday is worry about sore, chapped lips. Keep your pucker-ready by applying a super hydrating lip balm like Eve Lom Kiss Mix, which contains lip-softening beeswax. Apply an extra layer before you go to bed to wake up with soft, smooth lips.
