3 Winter Beauty Products You Need to Survive the Season

If you live in a particularly chilly part of the country, no doubt you’re missing the comfort that only springtime sunshine and cozy summer can bring. The way winter wreaks its unique brand of havoc on everything from lips to skin can be traumatic, especially if you’re prone to irritation, have sensitive skin, or deal with frizzy hair on a regular basis. Here are three key products that are designed just for those winter beauty emergencies—the situations that require a little something extra to see you through the rest of the season without a hitch.

For Irritated Skin

It’s not unusual to develop a dry complexion even if your skin is normal. You may notice an increase in patchy, irritated spots anywhere from your cheeks to your undereye area to your nose. That sort of discomfort usually
can’t be mitigated by your usual moisturizer—the one you put on beneath your makeup. Instead, you’ll want to load up on a product like Avene XeraCalm A.D. Lipid-Replenishing Balm , which is an advanced formula designed to target those problematic spots and deliver just what you need for consistent relief. It’s even safe to use on skin exacerbated by eczema and atopic dermatitis, two conditions that can become aggravated by falling temperatures.

For Irritated Eye Areas

You may be surprised to feel small bumps beneath your eyes. While your normal concern is probably puffiness or dark circles, this is an added issue that isn’t normally on your radar. The SkinCeuticals Eye Balm  is designed to combat the worries that plague your undereye skin particularly during this time of year. It’s ideal for aging skin, which is thinner and therefore more susceptible to irritation. As it is, your undereye skin is particularly delicate—so it can only benefit from a product enriched with emollients that leave the area softer and continuously hydrated.

For Chapped Lips

It’s sad but true: our lips are usually the first to show signs of winter’s ravages, along with our hands. That’s why it’s important to upgrade your moisturizing game at the turn of the season. If you haven’t already started using something hyper-hydrating, turn to ToGoSpa Organic Lip Balm in Organic Love . This is a lush, feels-amazing-to-the-touch product enriched with organic virgin coconut oil and African shea butter. Together, the duo work to nourish on contact. The moisture lasts, lasts, and lasts—and that’s the key to persistent comfort throughout the season.

It’s that time of the year again! Whether you need to bulk up on your cold weather beauty loot or just want to add something extra to your routine to take care of that pesky dryness, you’ve got a great opportunity during out Winter Beauty Sale. It kicks off this Saturday, January 26, 2019. Snag a few items for yourself and prepare to face the rest of the season in comfort!

3 Easy Tips to Prevent Winter Hair Damage

If it feels like winter is constantly wreaking some sort of havoc with your hair care routine, it’s not your imagination. The combination of falling temperatures and brisk air can totally undermine even the most sensible of regimens, leaving you struggling to find the right products to protect your mane from damage. Fortunately, it’s not impossible to prevent the season from ravaging your strands. Here’s how to handle it with ease.

Step 1: Shampoo Less Often

It’s often not actually your hair that suffers during winter, but your scalp. The skin can easily become sensitive, uncomfortable, and itchy when exposed to continuous cold air. If you already have dandruff or dermatitis, you might notice the conditions are worse at this time of the year. So what’s the solution? It starts in the shower. Instead of lathering up every time, reduce shampoo time to two or three washes a week depending on the condition of your hair. When you do cleanse your scalp, use a soothing product, like Oribe Ultra Gentle Shampoo , to produce softness without weighing down your hair.

Step 2: Use a Rich Conditioner

Warm, dry air may feel great when you come in from the cold, but it’s not the best ingredient for your hair. The only thing you can do to resolve the problem is to up your mane’s moisture intake. Using a conditioner infused with nourishing oils and butters is an easy way to accomplish this—it will help combat weakness, which can cause seasonal problems like breakage, brittleness, and split ends. Agadir’s Argan Oil Daily Volumizing Conditioner is like a vacation for your tired strands, thanks to its intensely hydrating combination of panthenol and argan oil. The blend leaves hair soft and beautifully scented.

Step 3: Minimize Heat Styling

Adding more heat to your hair care routine isn’t necessarily the best idea at any time of the year, but it can be particularly damaging during winter. If you already combat frizz and dryness, you’ll only aggravate the problem. To combat these concerns, do your best to minimize heat styling tools during winter. When possible, allow your hair to air dry, or use the coolest setting to hurry the drying process. If you do need to heat style, be sure to apply a protective product, such as a leave-in conditioner or a smoothing serum, to prevent burns. One to try: Marrakesh Oil High Tide.

New year, new hair! This Saturday, January 19th, we’re holding our first hair care sale of the year. Now is the time to stock up on the shampoos, conditioners, and styling treatments you need to achieve the gorgeous mane of your dreams.

Are You Washing Your Face the Right Way?

Washing your face seems easy enough. Just massage on some cleanser, splash with water, and dry off…right? Not quite. While that’s a very generalized approach that would probably have some effect, there’s actually a method to the routine that can have a serious impact on your skin’s condition. Not sure if you’ve been going about it the wrong way this entire time? Here’s how to clean up your act—and your skin!

  1. Choose the Right Products

Nothing is more vital to your skin than using the right products to cleanse. Even solutions that receive high praise from the masses—whether touted by a celebrity on a television commercial or raved about nonstop by your BFF—may not be right for you. Take into account your skin’s unique type first. If you’re dry, a creamy or milky emulsion will soothe your complexion without stripping away moisture. Oily types do best with foaming and gel-based cleansers that cool while eliminating oil and dirt. Sensitive skins may require some trial-and-error experimentation, but in general it’s best to avoid products with fragrances, parabens, and other possible allergens. 

 

  1. Use Lukewarm Water

Hot water might feel great, especially on a chilly winter’s day, but it’s not going to do your skin any favors. In fact, using hot water to cleanse is a great way to strip your skin of its natural oils and exacerbate existing dryness. The switch here is simple—use lukewarm water during your routine so that you don’t have to worry about these additional concerns.

  1. Find a Real Cleanser

The quick fix is often the most appealing, and that’s especially true if you’re in a rush to wash your face at the end of the day. Makeup wipes are practical in a pinch and offer a sufficient way to remove makeup from your skin—we’re obsessed with NuFace Prep-N-Glow Cleansing Cloths  for that purpose. It’s smart to follow that up with a mild cleanser designed to gently remove any remaining oil, dirt, and debris, such as SkinMedica Facial Cleanser . 

  1. Treat Skin After Washing

Skin treatments, such as serums, face masks, and moisturizers, are enriched with penetrative ingredients that do their best work after you’ve cleansed your skin. This is when it’s barest and most receptive to any key ingredients that your complexion can use to its best advantage. So if you’re ready to try that new sheet mask set you got for Christmas—or want to treat yourself to the bareMinerals Hyperglow Mini Face Mask Collection for a little at-home TLC—make sure that you do that after your skin is freshly washed.

5 Body Products Everyone Needs in the Winter

Winter has a tendency to take its toll on the skin. Even if you aren’t typically dry or sensitive, the harsh, cold air can create uncomfortable tightness, itchiness, and scaliness. To combat these problems, you’ll need to swap your usual products for a few emulsions formulated with specific nourishing ingredients that soothe and protect the skin. Here are five we love for the season.

Fix Your Hands

With excessive hand washing—something many of us do throughout cold and flu season—comes the
tendency for rough, dry hands. In more severe cases, your knuckles may crack and even bleed. The trick is to find a product that does more than simply coat it with a little moisture that comes off when you next wash your hands. Avene Cicalfate Hand  is designed to create a protective barrier that locks out the aggravating effects of winter without leaving your hands sticky or greasy. Used regularly, it will make a visible difference in the condition of your skin.

Scrub It Up

Even if you don’t typically exfoliate your skin, winter is an opportune time to start. In order to reap the rewards of any moisturizing products that you use, your skin needs to be free of flakes and dryness. Use a product like John Masters Organics Raspberry & Blood Orange Body Scrub  at least three or four times a week to enjoy a smoother, softer canvas that’s more accepting of your body creams and lotions. This formula is made with sugar and raspberry seeds, which make it gentle enough for most skin types. Bonus points for the gorgeous scent!

Add Rich Moisture

A generic body lotion that you tap into your skin during spring and summer won’t do much if you’re suffering in the winter. Upgrade your moisture game with something richer, creamier, and more protective, like Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Body Lotion . It’s packed with nourishing vitamins B5, C, and E, all of which work together to heal irritation. The nourishing formula sinks right into the skin without leaving you sticky, so you can get dressed quickly.

Treat Your Baths

There’s more to winter skin care than simply hydrating your skin. If you take regular baths, make the most of that time by treating the water with a conditioning product, like Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts. The combination of soothing mineral salts and seaweed gently slough off dead skin cells to reveal the softer skin beneath. And because of its enzymatic content, you may even notice a slight glow when you’re done with your soak. It also boasts a fragrant spice scent.

Use Some Oil

Some body oils are capable of doing anything, from smoothing frizz to soothing dryness to healing irritated cuticles. A product such as John Masters Organics 100% Argan Oil  is as versatile a taskmaster as anything you could imagine—it’s able to handle all of the above and so much more. Use it to soothe freshly shaved skin, or put it on before you apply lotion to lock in some extra moisture.

How to Revive Dull Hair in Cold Weather

Winter can take its toll on more than just your skin and overall comfort. The combination of dry air and falling temperatures can also affect the condition of your hair. As the season wears on, you may find that it appears dull and lackluster and feels dry to the touch. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take to restore its condition and give it a soft, touchable feel that puts a stop to anything winter throws its way.

Step 1: Swap Your Basics

Most of us are committed to a handful of shampoos and conditioners. But during winter, it’s important to switch out your core basics for products that quench limp strands with intensive moisture. Marrakesh Dreamsicle Shampoo  is formulated with oils derived from hemp and argan, and is safe for all hair types. In addition to imparting heavy-duty hydration, it also leaves strands scented with a refreshing tangerine/plum fragrance. Add a rich finishing product, like TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Conditioner , taking care to apply only from the ears to the ends.

Step 2: Add Dry Shampoo

Whether you’re rushing to work or preparing for a new year’s party, you owe it to your hair to add a dry shampoo to your arsenal. Using one is an easy way to revive tired locks, plump up your roots, and refresh yesterday’s style without going through the whole wash-dry-style routine. Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo  quickly perks up your look without adding buildup or that unpleasant white cast we all loathe so much. It also boasts the brand’s lovely signature fragrance, and is ideal for all types of hair.

Step 3: Deep Condition Regularly

It’s an unfortunate reality of winter: static flyaways that won’t stay down no matter what you do. You’ll need to take extra measures during the season—starting with a pillowcase swap. Silk is ideal because it reduces the friction that can lead to frizz and damage (bonus: it also prevents those unsightly lines you might notice first thing in the morning). Using a deep conditioner at least twice a week is also a must; reparative formulas infuse your hair with the nourishing ingredients it needs to heal. Try Agadir Argan Oil Hair Shield 450 Deep Fortifying Conditioner  for an instant boost.

Step 4: Leave-in Conditioner

Are you sensing a trend here? If your hair is especially dry year round, you may notice that it feels even more coarse during the coldest time of the year. Adding a leave-in conditioner to your routine will make a big difference in its texture and manageability. One to try: Rusk Sensories Brilliance Grapefruit and Honey Color Protecting Leave-In Cream Conditioner, which not only detangles stubborn strands, but also leaves behind an especially luxurious soft citrus fragrance.

New Year, New You: What You Need to Achieve Your 2019 Resolutions

A new year is once again mere days away. In addition to wondering exactly how a year flies by so fast, we’re also thinking about those sometimes dreaded new year’s resolutions making their way into our collective mindsets. It’s one thing to think about them, but putting them into action occasionally calls for a power greater than we can fathom. It’s never a problem, though, if your greatest resolution is merely to improve upon your own greatness. In the interest of establishing a better version of your already fabulous self in 2019, we’ve rounded up a few products that will help you stick to your resolution—for once.

Resolution 1: Relax More Often

Relaxation can occasionally seem like a distant term used to describe some foreign concept that you once knew well. In an age when everything moves at a constant pace, life doesn’t seem like it ever slows down—and when you get home at the end of the day, there’s barely enough time to blink before you settle down to sleep. Establishing some real “me time” is genuinely important for your emotional wellbeing, and 2019 is a great time to put that plan into action. Think about what that means for you, whether it’s reading more, taking luxurious baths, or scheduling a day at the spa every few weeks. You can enhance your home’s comfort by adding a soothing candle to the mix, like the aromatic vanilla orchid and almond scent from Nest Fragrances. A gentle fragrance can ease an exhausted mind in no time.
Resolution 2: Remove Makeup Daily

It’s not unusual to feel so tired at the end of the day that you simply tumble into bed without thinking about your makeup. Or maybe you do think about it—as you’re falling asleep. The only way to resolve this habit is to snap yourself out of it. You might need to remind yourself that leaving your makeup on overnight can do your skin some harm, especially if you’re acne-prone. But even if your skin is in great shape, you can protect it simply removing your makeup and applying a treatment at night. Remember that those overnight hours are when your skin works its hardest, and anything you apply will really make a difference. We love Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Makeup Remover  for its mild, soap-free formula.

Resolution 3: Treat Skin Better

In the interest of improving your skin, it’s time to focus on the products that are formulated especially for your complexion. Think about what your skin really needs. Are you concerned about excessive dryness, lines, sebum production, or acne? All of these issues require targeted formulas designed to work actively and aggressively. Sometimes it’s not enough to merely guess what your skin needs. If you have an active worry about something that’s bothering your skin, pay a visit to your dermatologist first. They can provide you with detailed information to help you select the right products for your needs.

 Resolution 4: Revive Your Hair

Do you often look in the mirror and wish your hair was…different? Whether you’re tired of your long, flat hair or want to grow it out, there are endless ways to give your mane a new look in the new year. And what better time to really make it happen? Naturally, a great head of hair is largely dependent on what you use at home. Make sure that you’re using a shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for your hair type. Even the right hairbrush can make all the difference! We’re big proponents of the Bio Ionic Silver Classic Paddle Brush  for its ability to make real changes: it fights static, minimizes breakage, reduces split ends, and is gentler overall on your scalp.

 Resolution 5: Try Something New

You don’t have to do anything drastic, but if you want to shake up your routine just a little bit you can add a new color to your everyday look. Consider where you could make the biggest change. If you never go without your pink lip gloss, for example, you might swap it for red just to experiment with a new signature color—we love BareMinerals Moxie Plumping Gloss in Diva. If you’re obsessed with black eyeliner, even replacing it with brown could soften the overall effect and give you a different look that’s just as flattering. If you have always wanted to play up your cheekbones, adding some radiant blush to the apples of your cheeks could be a complete game-changer. Have fun with it!

Get the Look: Jennifer Lopez

For the premier of her latest movie, A Second Act, Jennifer Lopez held nothing back—except onlookers who had to make way for the back of her enormous Giambattista Valli dress. The bright pink number turned heads for good reason, but what we’re really loving is the way her pretty in pink makeup complements her gown so beautifully. It’s the ultimate ode to one of our favorite ladylike hues, and, in true Jlo style, it looks perfectly natural. Here’s how to make it your own.

Start With a Flawless Canvas

Her longtime makeup artist, Scott Barnes, began this beautiful look with fresh skin. Begin with a brightening foundation that allows your natural beauty to shine, like Glo Skin Beauty Luminous Liquid Foundation . Available in seven shades, this emulsion is designed to bring out the best of your complexion and produce a lit-from-within glow

Next Step, Eyes

Only Jlo could pull off what appears to be a pink smokey eye with such incredible ease. Of course, with Barnes wielding a makeup brush, anything is possible. For this look, grab a Tigi Cosmetics HD Quad Eye Shadow in Love Affair . Dust the lightest shade all over your brow bone and the inside corners of your eyes. Then dip a brush into the pink shade and apply it from the inner corners all the way across your lids and up to the creases. Use a flat brush to apply the same hue to your lower lash lines. Then add the deep brown shade to the outer corners, packing it into the outer creases.

Opt for a dark brown or charcoal liner to provide some contrast to the pink, like one from the Glo Minerals Precise Micro Eyeliner  collection. Apply it to the outer corners of the eyes, across the upper lash lines, and along the outer edges of the lower lash lines. Smudge it out with a cotton swab if the lines are too fine. Finish with multiple coats of Jane Iredale PureLash Lengthening Mascara  in Brown Black.

Play Up Your Cheekbones

The gorgeous flush displayed here is what really makes the look so charming and ladylike. It’s that delicate flush that looks healthy, bright, and festive all at once—and the fact that it matches the dress is just icing. The PÜR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Blush Book  makes it simple to narrow down your ideal shade of pink. Use a thick blush brush, smile into the mirror, and apply color directly to the apples of your cheeks. This look is about soft, delicate placement instead of harsh, heavily contoured lines!

Add a Kiss of Color

Nothing but a perfectly pink lip would be appropriate for this eye-catching look. Start with Youngblood Lip Liner Pencil  in Rose. Fill in the entire lip so that they’re primed for the finishing layers. The Glo Minerals Cream Glaze Crayon  acts like a lipstick thanks to nourishing shea butter and mango oil, both of which hydrate your lips. There are a handful of pink shades in the group, but we love Dahlia for this look. Finish with generous coats of Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss in Pink Smoothie.

A Guide to Wearing Matte During the Holidays

Although typically associated with shimmer and glimmer, winter is also a great time to break out your most adventurous matte hues. Richly saturated lips and deeply colorful eyelids set the stage for a beautiful cold-weather look that’s appropriate for everything from holiday season parties to The Nutcracker showings at your local theatre. Thinking of experimenting with matte for the first time? Here are some important tips to keep in mind.

Make a Statement With Your Eyes

It’s usually the aforementioned shimmery shadows that make the boldest statement. But when applied properly, even matte eye makeup can transform your look into one that is stunning and seductive. Think in terms of your agenda. If you’re headed out, it’s more than appropriate to rock a deep, smoky eye and complement the look with bold eyelashes. Start by priming your lids with bareMinerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow Primer . Smooth the cream on and watch it transform into a matte powder before your eyes.

Then it’s time to dip into your favorite colors from the Jane Iredale Eye Shadow Kit  in Naturally Matte. Dust the medium shade onto your lids, using a light hand so that you can build color gradually. Then add some dimension by working the darkest color into the crease. Extend that color to the inner third of your eye and blend it just slightly upward. Apply the lightest shade to your brow bone for an eye-popping look. Don’t forget to add a few generous coats of mascara!

Give Your Skin a Little Boost

The right matte products can make a world of difference in how your complexion looks. The key is to select formulas that are designed specifically for your skin type. If you have dry tendencies, for example, seek out items that are enriched with hydrating ingredients to bring out the best in your complexion. The Revision Skincare Intellishade Matte SPF 45 is an excellent starting point. The moisturizing product dries down to a flattering matte finish and leaves just a hint of color on the skin.

If you don’t want to bother with foundation or like using a setting product as a final touch, consider Glo Minerals Loose Matte Finishing Powder . The translucent product is easy to dust on with a fluffy brush, and is expertly formulated to combat oily skin and prevent pesky shine from breaking through in the middle of the day. The best part is how flawless your skin will look after application—and for hours after.

Add a Pop to Your Lips

If the holidays aren’t the right time to add a dash of crimson to your lips, then there will never be a right time. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, add a matte version of the color to your repertoire. The hues provided in the bareMinerals Go Bold or Go Bare Trio Matte Lip Kit  are especially fitting for this time of year. You’ll have your choice of a pale mauve-pink that’s ideal for the work day, a bold violet to punctuate your night-out looks, and a seductive oxblood red that breaks all notions of timidity and gives you a perfect excuse to finally rock red lips before the year ends.

Holiday Preview Sale 2018

It’s beginning to look a lot like…well, more than just Christmas. It’s the week after Black Friday and Cyber Monday is now a distant memory. What that means for all of us is that we’re scrambling to lock down the best gifts possible for all of the special people on our collective lists. We’ve rounded up everything that your VIPs could possibly want—and they’re all especially appealing for their great values. Here’s what we’re loving this holiday season.

For Her 

Proof that she doesn’t have to spend an entire day at the spa to reap the benefits of a luxurious skin treatment: the bareMinerals Hyperglow Mini Face Mask Collection. It’s filled with four try-me sizes of the brand’s best treatments: Be Pure to draw out dirt and debris; Be Dewy to enhance hydration; Be Bright to leave skin radiant; and Be Firm to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

It’s a classic for a great reason. The Clarisonic Mia Fit Sonic Cleansing System  packs a punch despite its demure size. The handheld cleansing brush is designed to do it all—remove makeup, minimize impurities, deep clean pores, and leave skin looking and feeling smoother and more supple. The package includes a USB charger, which means she can charge it anytime, anywhere!

For Him

If you’re already planning for your annual spring getaway, you can count on one thing: he probably won’t pack until the last minute. Get a head start on his behalf by surprising him with the Anthony Logistics Tool Kit . It’s a magnificent example of practical organization, with all of the essentials that he needs tucked into a sleek zippered case. Inside, he’ll find a pair of tweezers, nail clippers, grooming scissors, and a nail file.

No doubt he takes great pride in his facial hair. There’s something about that groomed work of art that he really loves—but without a little moisture, things can get a little rough. That’s where the Tigi Bed Head for Men Fuel Around Beard Oil comes in handy. Tuck this petite bottle into his stocking so that he can fuel his prized creation with nourishing vitamin E and protective antioxidants. 

For Teens

Makeup enthusiasm starts at a young age—really young, if you’re like most of us. But if your teen is just getting her feet wet and wants to experiment with a touch of pretty color, the bareMinerals Northern Lights Gen Nude Eye & Cheek Palette  is a gorgeous starting point. Inside are two shadows and a blush, designed to give her eyes and complexion a natural, healthy glow.

It’s also never too early to experiment with quality skin care products. The PÜR Cosmetics Sweet 16 Get This Party Started Prep Collection contains every thing your teen needs to achieve smooth, fresh skin: a trendy gilded mask, a primer to wear alone or beneath makeup, a light oil that keeps dry winter skin at bay, and an airy mist to set her makeup or cool down.

For Mom

Could mom’s beauty routine use an upgrade? Surprise her with a big-ticket item that she’s unlikely to splurge on herself, like the Jade Roller Beauty Rose Quartz . This stunning tool is as beautiful as it is effective—something she’ll quickly learn the first time she uses it. Simply gliding it over the complexion is a relaxing experience (what mom doesn’t want more R&R?), but popping it into the fridge to cool it down makes for an even more spa-like, therapeutic indulgence.

Beautiful candles nestled in a gorgeous box are not only impressive for their presentation, but also their desirable scents. That’s the case with the delightful NEST Fragrances 10th Anniversary Discovery Votive Set, which is packed with 10 mini votives in a variety of indulgent scents. Perfect for illuminating the bathroom on spa night or adding a warm glow to the living room, the set contains something for every mom, no matter what type of fragrance she favors.

For Dad

Dad may not quite be the type to indulge in high-end shampoo and conditioner. In fact, he may routinely wonder why you have 10 different bottles going at a time. No doubt it’s a mystery to all, but this Tigi B for Men Clean Up Shampoo and Conditioner Set  may help set matters straight just a little bit. The formulas are nourishing and elegant, with a healthy blend of lemongrass and menthol that lends his mane a fresh scent, plus a dash of peppermint to stimulate hair growth.

Hair loss can trigger feelings of dismay no matter a person’s age. Help dad face the challenge with a Bosley Defense Starter Pack. Inside this innovative set are full-size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and defense treatment. When used regularly and in tandem, they may contribute to halting hair loss and minimizing the appearance of thinness.

Skin Care Ingredients to Add to Your Winter Routine

It’s that time of the year again—and there’s no better way to protect your skin from winter’s wrath than by filling up your beauty arsenal with key protective ingredients. The season’s usual side effects, ranging from ultra-dry skin to chapped lips to red skin, are annoying, sure, but they aren’t set in stone. There are several steps that you can take to ensure your skin doesn’t freak out just because the weather is having a tantrum. Here’s what you should add if you haven’t already included it in your regimen.

Squalane

You’ve probably heard of squalene, which comes from shark liver oil. But squalene is the plant-based alternative that your skin will love during winter. It’s designed to soothe irritated, reddened skin when you’ve just come in from the cold, and it can prevent your skin from the effects of potentially damaging free radicals. It’s a powerful antioxidant that nourishes on contact and works over time to protect your skin. Try Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil 100% Purified Squalane , which is a non-comedogenic formula that enhances your complexion and may even reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is the key to the baby-soft skin we all crave. Although we’re all born with it, it fades away as we grow older. It’s especially important to use during winter because it locks in moisture and leaves skin more supple and healthy looking. We’re loving Karin Herzog E&R Hyaluronic Acid Serum —not only does it deeply hydrate, but it also fills your fine lines to leave skin looking its smoothest.

Moringa Oil

Non-comedogenic, gentle, and suitable for all skin types, moringa oil has quickly earned a reputation as one of the most beneficial ingredients available. More than just a potent hydrator, it’s also known for its anti-aging properties and ability to enhance your complexion’s glow. If your skin is prone to rashes and burns when it’s cold outside, you’ll love the way moringa oil soothes on contact. Try Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Facial Oil  for quick results.

Ceramides

If you suffer from especially dry skin, you may already be familiar with this hyper-moisturizing ingredient that empowers your skin’s natural moisture barrier and helps lock in more water. That’s essential when temperatures drop, because your skin is far more susceptible to moisture loss when the air is so dry. Using a ceramide-rich product can leave even the driest skins healthier and softer. We love SkinMedia TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream . It can be used on even the most sensitive skin types.

Evening Primrose Oil

You may hear all about all types of oils year round, but few are as effective during winter as evening primrose oil. It’s enriched with essential fatty acids that help lock in the moisture you’re more inclined to lose as temperatures fall. This not only keeps your skin softer for longer periods, but also helps reduce the discomfort you might feel due to rough patches and inflamed areas. bareMinerals Eternalixir Skin-Volumizing Oil Serum is a skin-loving addition that softens on contact and helps make your skin more resilient with regular use.
