Winter is ROUGH on our skin. There is no can be, may be, or sometimes, as it happens every year that our skin changes as the colder months come around. I feel this change in my lips first, they start to get a tad dry and then it spreads to my skin; therefore I try to stay a step ahead of the effects that winter may have on our radiant skin. With all this in mind, I’ve gathered my picks for the top 5 products to protect your skin this winter.
Protect Your Skin With These Products
Maybelline Baby Lips
I have to have one of these near me at all times, summer and winter. The “Cherry Me” one is my most favourite as it adds a gorgeous redish highlight to your lips. These keep your lips super smooth, particularly for wearing matte lipsticks. Another quick tip to keep you lips smooth is to exfoliate them by brushing them gently with a dry toothbrush.
Vichy Purete Thermale One Step Milk Cleanser 3-in-1
The name of this product is a mouth full, but it’s benefits definitely keep up! This is by far the best skin care product I’ve ever used on my face, it removes makeup, cleanses and tones. the best part is that it leaves your skin baby soft and feeling renewed. This is a must-have in my books!
Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion
I have one of these on my night table and another one in my office. Every time I feel like my skin is slightly itchy from oncoming dryness I apply it and I’m immediately baby soft again; of course, I recommend using it daily for maintaining your skin moisturized. They have a wide variety of scents to pick from, too many in fact! I use the Warm Vanilla Sugar in the winter and Beautiful day in the summer. The Beautiful Day body spray is amazing too!
Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish
This stuff is AMAZING! I have been loyal to this body polish for years as part of my once a week exfoliating routine. This product is particularly brilliant after a body wax as it both exfoliates and moisturizes (it includes sweet almond oil and shea butter). Do be careful though, as the salt contained in the polish may sting any skin irritations.
The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Cream
This cream is really great. I particularly love it as I rub it around my nails and cuticles and it leaves them feeling refreshed. Your hands will feel so smooth and moisturized after applications. I use it as often as I need it, at least once daily though. The Body Shop has travel sizes too if you want to keep on in your purse or handbag!
We’ve covered face, body, hands and lips with my recommendations for the top 5 products to protect your skin this winter. I hope you love these products as much as I do if you decide to try them out. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
