Winter is upon us babes, and this means switching up your skincare routine to match the harsh conditions. In todays bog we will be sharing some of our top winter beauty essentials.
Lip Balm: This is a MUST all year round. Our fav lip balm for the winter has been Fresh Advanced Lip Therapy. It was actually designed as an anti-aging treatment, which means it’s way more moisturizing than your average tube. Plus? It gently exfoliates dead skin. We like the sheer pink colour cause it applies a nice light tint. Shop here
Hand Cream: We’ve all experienced dry hands in this cold weather. It is is extremely important to keep the skins on your hands hydrated since they are exposed to most of the cold. One of our faves has been John Masters Organics Cacao & Cupuacu Hand and Body Butter. It works instantly and even the itchiest, irritated paws would be soothed. Shop here
Foot Cream: Your feet bear the brunt of the cold, plus they’re trudging through the ice and snow, which can be a messy job depending on your footwear of choice. Our fav has been the Weleda Skin Food. You can use it on elbows, dry patches, and all over the feet. A helpful tip for 911 situations? Coat your feet in it, then put a pair of thermal socks on. Go to bed. Wake up with pedicure-ready toes.

Moisturizing Foundation: In the winter avoid using a powder or cream based foundation since they tend to dry out your skin. Try the more moisturizing—but not oily—YSL Beauty Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation. It glides on for an effortless radiance that won’t pronounce any dry spots, and will camouflage winter redness.

Waterproof Mascara: Waterproof Mascara is a must during the cold winter months, especially since our eyes tend to get water from the harsh winds. Kevyn Aucoin’s The Essential Mascara has a special technology that only allows the formula to budge by removing with warm water, making it great for girls who normally react to waterproof formulas, which can be drying for some skin types.
