Winter Skin Remedies
Can we for a quick second talk about how much I hate winter? I mean, sure the snow is pretty and when you get to play outside it's super fun. However dry, dull skin, static-infused hair and the need to layer on 17 items of clothing before going outside are not the most fun thing I can think of. Needless to say, tank top weather can not come soon enough for me. In the mean time, while the weather might be dull and dreary, your skin certainly doesn't have to be. My skin has been through the winter-ringer and I've compiled some of my faves to help you battle winter skincare concerns.
1 // Farmhouse Fresh Body Scrub: A good body scrub is a necessity year round, but definitely in the winter. Get ride of dully, flaky skin by sloughing off this unsightly layer. I have found that my fave body scrubs are oil based, like the one pictured above, and provide your skin with another added layer of moisture.
2 // Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial: I was recently introduced to the sleeping facial phenomenon while browsing Sephora for hydrating products, and this one my friends is nothing short of fabulous. The smell is amazing and leaves your face feeling smooth, supple and oh-so-moisturized.
3 // The Body Shop Almond Body Butter: Like I said, I struggle with ridiculously dry skin year round, but have found that when I use this consistently, my skin stays moisturized longer and has a lovely glow to it. The consistency is super thick and just what the doctor ordered for this girl's dry skin.
4 // LUSH Ro's Argan Body Conditioner: I don't know about you guys, but I love LUSH products, and could drool over the delicious scents of their bath bombs. When I need a little extra hydration, I turn to this product. Think of it just as you would your hair conditioner. It helps make your skin feel silky smooth, just like your hair conditioner would.
5 // LUSH The Olive Branch Shower Gel: Alright stylish friends, I'm extending the olive branch and sharing with you one of my faves. This skin softening organic olive oil shower gel helps to soothe dry skin unlike any shower gel I've tried. The yummy smell isn't too shabby either.
So you're probably looking at this list and thinking, "What in the hell? How is this girl not a walking greasy mess?" Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing as I was looking at all of these products. But alas, my face is oily/combination, my body is dry...I'm just a big hot mess over here. What can I say?
