5 Winter Beauty Essentials

12.17.2012

Last week, we talked winter fashion, this week, let's talk winter beauty essentials. While my daily routine doesn't change much from season to season, there are a few tried and true products I've discovered over the years that lessen the impact of the cold winter weather on my skin and hair.
Moroccan Oil | For my fine, tangle-prone hair that gets especially dry and knotty in the winter, this stuff works wonders. A little bit goes a long way, and using it is as simple as applying a bit to the ends of your hair and blow drying or air drying as usual.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment | A lip balm that keeps my lips from getting dry and adds a swipe of sheer color  – let's just say when the cold weather comes around, I never leave home with out it. I love the color of "Sugar Rose" for everyday wear, and "Sugar" is great for applying right before bed for a little extra hydration!


Tea | During the winter I drink a lot of tea. The health benefits range depending on the ingredients and kind of tea you sip, but isn't it so satisfying is it to sip a hot cup of tea on a freezing winter day? Some of my personal favorites: Harney & Sons 'Hot Cinnamon Sunset' (perfect for winter, cinnamon helps curb sweet cravings and improves circulation), Revolution 'Pomegranate White Tea' (packed with antioxidants), and TeaVana ' My Morning Maté' (perfect replacement for your daily coffee that won't make you shaky; made with red rooibos tea which is full of beneficial minerals).

Sephora Collection Instant Moisturizer |  This is one of the best moisturizers I have ever owned, and it's super affordable at $20. It's lightweight and not greasy, but seriously moisturizes my sensitive skin. I use this year round, but I definitely see the difference it makes in the winter.

TREsemme Dry Shampoo | I picked this up back in the fall, and have been using it ever since. It sprays on like hair spray, but absorbs excess oil and leaves your hair fuller and surprisingly easy to work with. It's also great for quick touch-ups when you're going from day to night.

Do tell – what are some of your winter beauty secrets?

  2. I agree with Sara and also love the Fresh Lip balm (anything Fresh is great). I'll have to try the Sephora face lotion. I'm always in search of affordable, great products!
