The weather has officially cooled down in Dallas! While my wardrobe has made the adjustments necessary to match the cooler weather, my beauty regime has slowly started to catch up. I know that winter always leads to painfully chapped lips and tight dry skin. There is no escaping the inevitable and each year I’m slowly trying new products to get ahead of the irritating issues the cold leads to.
With the cold weather season, it’s important to say goodbye to the dry! I’ve decided to share just a few of my favorite products to combat the drying conditions this year.
I can tell you that I’m notorious for licking my lips most of the winter trying to keep them from feeling so dry due to the colder weather. It’s a bad habit that I rarely even notice that I’m doing. This winter I’m breaking myself out of that habit and plan on taking the best care of my lips. Lately, I’ve been relying on three products to keep my lips smooth and moisturized as the crisp air rolls in.
1 | mulleinandsparrow Mini Tinted Lip & Cheek Balm – This lip and cheek balm provides nourishment, protection, and a hint of color to drying lips. You can really feel the moisture as you slather it on and it never feels like its too much.
2 | MALIN + GOETZ mojito lip balm – This hydrating lip gel is great for daily usage for preventing dry, irritated lips. I have been utilizing this lip balm to revitalize my lips after a good exfoliating.
3 | e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator – Speaking of exfoliating, OMG! This e.l.f. lip exfoliator is everything. Just a few gentle circles removes dry and chapped skin to leave you with smooth revitalized lips. For $3, you can’t beat this deal!
My face gets insanely dry and feels like its starting to crack if I don’t take the time to moisturizer it. Every winter I fight a battle with making sure that my face is clean and heavily moisturized. These two products are fairly new to my rotation, but I’m extremely happy with the results I have achieved so far.
1 | Olay Active Botanicals Refreshing Gel Cleanser – This gel cleanser does not over dry your skin and that is a huge win factor in my book! The cleanser leaves your face clean, healthy-looking, and glowing. I love how soft it feels when you are massaging it in and you can tell a difference immediately after washing your face.
2 | Neutrogena Body Oil – This body oil has become my life saver after washing my face. Even with my heavy cream moisturizer, my skin has still been feeling extremely dry towards the end of the day. This product was sent to me by Influenster and after doing a little research – I added it to my face rotation. After washing my face and pat drying it, I have started using this oil to seal in the moisture before applying my heavy cream moisturizer. It’s worked wonders! This is a new product from Neutrogena and can be used all over your body for soft and radiant skin.
