Winter Skin Care Items We Can't Live Without
The winter months are no joke for your skin, but with just a few changes, you can completely conquer the cold weather without missing a beat! Richer moisturizers and remembering to exfoliate on the regular are just a couple of small things you can do to keep your skin from looking dry and drab this season.
As the cold weather sets in, we’ll definitely be using products from brands such as Glossier, Skin Laundry and Kopari to keep our bods in tip-top shape.
See some of the products we’ll be keeping on our top shelves all winter long:
1. Priming Moisturizer Rich
Priming Rich Moisturizer, $35, Glossier
This rich, buttery product is as luxurious as skin care gets. It's sure to keep your skin hydrated and feeling great. It's intensely moisturizing, but won't leave your face feeling greasy and the best part of all — you can easily add makeup on top of it. So, it'll become apart of your routine seamlessly this winter season.
2. BHA Exfoliant
2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, $29, Paula's Choice
This will gently exfoliate to reveal the healthiest, most glowing layer of skin. Because this is a liquid, it's not as abrasive as traditional scrubs and can be used up to twice a day. We love this stuff because it's a great way to keep our skin naturally glowing even though the summertime sun isn't exactly apart of our beauty routine at the moment.
3. Smoothing Eye Concentrate
Smoothing Eye Concentrate, $29, Juice Beauty
Taking some extra time to make sure our eye area is moisturized is a nice, pampering step in our nighttime routine. It feels like we're pampering ourselves, and we're helping to keep our eyes look brighter, younger and healthier in the process. Adding this to your routine is an all-round win.
4. Brightening Serum
Brightening Serum With Glycolic Acid, $50, Skin Laundry
Adding this to a nighttime routine is almost as good as pressing the snooze button. You'll wake looking refreshed with brighter, younger-looking skin. This is made to produce collagen and fight wrinkles, so we'll be using this stuff all-year round, but it's especially great during the winter when our skin tends to look the most dull.
5. Mega Greens Galaxy Pack
Mega Greens Galaxy Pack, $22, Glossier
This gentle clay mask will deliver major hydration, while gently exfoliating away dry, dull layers. Put this on, relax for 20 minutes and wash the mask away to reveal an even better you!
6. Body Milk
Coconut Body Milk, $30, Kopari
Coconut-based creamy lotion is the way to go this winter. This stuff will keep your bod moisturized without being greasy. We love lathering up with this stuff as soon as we step out of the shower in the morning for moisturization that lasts all day.
7. Balm Dotcom
Balm Dotcom, $30 for 3, Glossier
We carry a tube of this in our bags and keep one on our top shelf because we really couldn't face the winter without this stuff. It's great for slathering on dry, chapped lips, using around your cuticles or even using on any pesky dry blemishes on the face. We're telling you — this is a Glossier god-send.
8. Lavender Oil
Lavender Blossom Body Oil, $24, Mullein & Sparrow
Just a few drops of this stuff in your bathwater will transport you from your bathroom to a luxurious spa. The lavender will relax your muscles while soothing your skin. Grab a good book and plan to stay a while.
9. Coconut Oil Hair Mask
Coconut Melt, $38, Kopari
Ok, so you're doing a good job of taking care of your body, but you can't forget about your hair! Using the coconut oil, coat your strands from root to tip, wait 40 minutes and then rinse with shampoo twice to unleash healthy, hydrated hair.
