Arguably one of the worst things about bitter cold weather (other than the fact that it’s bitter cold weather) is how dry it makes your skin. Between the cold wind outside, and the fact that you have your heat cranked up to it’s highest setting, your skin definitely takes a beating. I always switch out my summer beauty products right around November when the cold really starts to bite, and after much trial and error, I found that these are my go-to winter products to help me combat the dryness:
Jergens Ultra Healing lotion- this stuff works serious wonders. I find it hard to find an extremely moisturizing lotion that doesn’t just sit on your skin or feel too suffocating. This lotion absorbs really fast and thoroughly moisturizes your skin in no time.
Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash (Pistachio cream with Magnolia)- Dove’s body washes are creamy and promise to replenish moisture to your skin. They definitely kept the promise for this one…and it smells great.
Ponds Cream– this face cream is thicker than the cream I use over the summer, and it definitely helps my face stay soft and glowing without feeling greasy. My face and lips always take the worst beating because they’re usually exposed to the cold the most, so this cream is definitely a must in my book.
Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1– this lip balm is really thick, so I prefer to put it on right before I get in bed, but it really works wonders against chapped lips!
Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve– I’ve mentioned this hand salve in previous posts but it is seriously my favorite hand cream in the world. It’s a little thick so I would definitely recommend putting it on before bed.
