Winter is not just about finding your favorite coat to keep you warm and stylish. It’s also about finding the right beauty products to protect your skin, hair and body against the damaging elements. As the temperature drops, packing on the moisture can be the key to a better beauty routine this season. So just like your clothes….LAYER, LAYER, LAYER! Here are a few suggestions.
Traditionally switching from a 2-in-1 shampoo conditioner in the warmer season to two separate products that moisturize may not be all you need. Fragile, processed or extra dry hair need additional TLC so don’t be afraid to pack on the power of moisture.
Start by applying a treatment to tresses, like the Oil Creme Pre-Shampoo treatment by Alterna, and massage it on the scalp as well.
To get the best results allow treatment to stay stay on your hair for 5-15 minutes before washing. It primes hair so shampoo and conditioner work more effectively but also locks in additional moisturize to a parched mane (good for all hair types).
To ensure all of your hard work of layering doesn’t go to waste, finish with styling products that hydrate as well. Hydra-Gelee is a great option that includes frizz busting benefits.
Layering with your skin is important too, especially since fine lines due to dryness can show as the first signs of aged skin.
Start with a hydrating cleanser, like the Spa@Home 3 in 1 Melting cleanser by Masque Bar that transforms into an oil as you rub it on your face. Once all dirt, oil, and makeup is removed throw on an overnight mask before you go to bed to boost moisture as you sleep.
If you need a good nights rest, opt for the Masque Bar Spa@Home Sleeping Mask. It’s packed with lavender extract, and the scent will help you get the rest you need.
When you wake you can either wash again, or just rinse your face and finish with a moisturizer.
Here is an overnight mask option.
No need to stop layering now. For your body start in the tub with a scrub that can remove dry skin cells while adding nourishment using oil.
Wild Harvest Care body scrubs are all natural and contain multiple oils, like almond and coconut, to soften skin. The Green Tea scrub is designed to give youthful radiance to the skin. The Coffee scrub smooths and minimizes the look of cellulite, which is perfect after all of the food you ate over the holidays.
When done towel off and layer on some body lotion. Use one that will last all day like the Lubriderm Advanced Therapy, which contains vitamin B and E but also snuggles your skin with 24 hours of moisture.
No matter what products you decide to use, just remember that the key to great Winter beauty is all in the layering!border
