Winter time is upon us with dropping temperature, chilly winds and indoor heating. Al this can really dry out your hair and skin. It’s definitely time to change your skin care products and add a few creamy thick moisturizing essentials.
Here are our winter beauty essentials and favorite product picks:
Our hair gets parched, brittle and more prone to breakage. Use a deep conditioner in the shower or try a leave in conditioner. This will leave your hair shiny and soft. For really soft hair slather your hair with coconut oil before shower. Use a generous amount and believe me you will feel a huge difference in your hair. Leave it overnight or for an hour before washing your hair.
Face and Body
Apply a moisturizing body butter on your damp skin. A great alternative is to use a baby oil which holds moisture in your skin better. If you’re someone who don’t want to buy a ton of products then it is best to look for something like Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. It is amazing for the cold months. Use it as a cream on your face and hands or on your lips as a balm. If you haven’t got one, you need to get one.
No skin care is complete without shedding off your flaky skin with a good old scrub. It’s very important to buff away dry and dead skin to reveal a healthy glowing skin. Exfoliation will help your skin absorb the moisturizer better.
