Winter does HORRORS to my skin, I don’t remember it always being like this but the older I get the worse it gets. It drives me absolutely nuts. What I’ve noticed though is that the right cleanser and moisturizer can work wonders. So can fixing yourself up all nice and pretty. If you feel good, you’ll look good too, for the most part that is 😉
My number one beauty product this winter that you can find anywhere is Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil
Why I love it: It smells amazing, it has a great lemon scent that brings you back to summer and it feels luxurious on my skin. I use it after I get out of the shower and I even dab a small amount on my face which leaves a nice little glow and doesn’t cause me to break out!
Next on my list? Avalon Organics Vitamin C Refreshing Cleansing Gel
Why I love it: Apparently I’m into the way things smell because I also love the way this smells, like oranges 🙂 I also love that it’s organic and all natural! The fact that it’s safe for my skin is HUGE for me!
So like I said I have super dry skin which unfortunately extends to my scalp as well so in addition to a great shampoo I also need a moisturizing and hydrating conditioner especially when you throw in the fact that I curly hair that gets really frizzy no matter what time of the year it is. Something that I have been using on and off for years now are mint based shampoos and conditioners. The one I’ve tried recently is Avalon Organics Tea Tree Mint.
Why I love it: It feels AMAZING on your scalp. It relieves any itchiness you may be feeling from dry skin and moisturizes your hair and your scalp.
For me winter is all about staying as moisturized as possible.
