Once the colder weather comes around, it causes many of us to step up our beauty regimen and make some changes that can help us better get through the season. There are certain products that are positively beneficial to incorporate into our routine and can really make a big difference when it comes to the look of our makeup as well as the feel of our skin. Ready to learn what they are?
With the cold weather often comes lips that are dry and cracked, but that’s where lip balm proves useful. Don’t choose just any one; opt for one that really works to heal and moisturize your lips. Consider picking up a multi-pack so you can put one lip balm in your coat, another in your bag, at work, at home, and anywhere else you can easily grab it when you need it.
Moisturizing is so important all year long, but it’s even more essential during the winter when the cold weather basically sucks all the moisture out of your skin. Apply moisturizer right after you shower, and don’t hesitate to apply it during the rest of the day as well. Don’t forget to switch out the lightweight moisturizer that you’ve been using through the warmer months for one that’s richer and can better help your skin through the cold weather.
The cold weather can make your skin look dull and lifeless not to mention feel dry and itchy, but exfoliating can make a huge difference. You don’t want to do it every day, however. If you have sensitive skin, once a week should suffice, but if you don’t, then once or twice a week is usually ideal. Don’t worry about scrubbing hard with the body scrub; let the product do all the work.
Hand cream really is an amazing product to carry around with you during winter. While you should absolutely use it after you wash your hands and after you shower, you can also apply it throughout the day. Considering many tubes of hand cream are small, they can easily fit right into your bag or coat pocket.
So what’s waterproof mascara doing on a list of winter beauty essentials? If you’ve ever worn mascara while you’re out and about and the cold wind is blowing, you’re likely familiar with how bad your eyes – or even just one eye – can water. In turn, this can send your mascara under your eyes and dripping down your cheeks. You’re probably not very happy with this look, but that’s where waterproof mascara comes in handy. It can help keep your mascara on your lashes where it belongs.
One of the best winter beauty essentials you can have throughout winter? Warm clothing! Layers are going to help keep you warm and help protect your skin from the bitter cold, so put on a warm jacket (preferably one with a hood) and pile on the accessories and you’ll be good to go through the season.
