Winter is tough. Even for the fashion and beauty obsessed, it can easily become the time for sweatpants, hot chocolate, staying in and breaking out the full scarf collection. It’s just easier that way! Isn’t it? We promise, it doesn’t have to be. While we are always in favor of a leggings and messy bun Sunday, you shouldn’t let your whole beauty routine fall apart just because of the weather! We have a round up of some of the best products to up the ante on your winter beauty regimen – for both protection and prettiness!
The easiest way to make yourself feel peppier on even the coldest of mornings is a pop of color! With Valentine’s Day coming up, red is on all our minds, and our whole team is loving this new Marc Jacobs “Jezebel” nail polish for a devilishly fun manicure. Or throw on a bold red lip from the MAKE lipstick line! It’ll make your teeth look as bright white as the snow outside your window.
Once you actually are outside though, the wind and cold can wreak havoc on your hair. To avoid your locks drying out, it’s time to break out the ultra-moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. The duo from BlowPro, one of our new favorite blow dry bars, will nourish hair root to tip. Plus we love the cool packaging!
And to combat that ever-attractive post-hat hair frizz, we are carrying around these Kerastase hair touch-up sheets. Similar to the oil absorbing pads many girls use for their T-Zone, these help absorb any oils along your scalp! So practical and also can aid in taming frizz!
The wind can also be bad for your skin. The drying and over lotioning cycle can lead to redness, uneven dry spots and even acne so its important to have a complete program you can rely on. Recently we came across the Acure skincare brand and have been totally hooked ever since. From their face wash to the line eraser, this line is gentle, doesn’t have that medical scent and gets the job done! We keep the facial cream at our desks and the marula oil can be used on damaged hair, dry patches and more! This line is one you’ll want to have on your side for the season.
And last but not least is every girl’s nightmare; the dreaded wintertime paleness. We all miss the sun (trust me we do) but that doesn’t mean you should resort to the damaging rays of a tanning bed. Karora is our new favorite brand of self-tanning products, whether you want a gradual glow or overnight transformation! Be sure to pick up their handy application glove to escape any orange palm embarrassment.
