8 Beauty Products to Beat the Winter Arctic Skin Blues

Hey everyone! This morning, I slowly pulled my car out of the parking lot in 5 degree weather and my hair in popsicle sticks since I typically air dry it. Probably not the best idea this morning, but that was over and done with.

With much of the Northeast, Midwest and parts of the South in this Arctic winter blast we’re currently having, I thought it would be nice to round up some lifesaving products that your skin needs to surviving this winter. Apparently, it’s our worst yet if that’s hard to believe.

1. Josie Maran Cleansing Oil // 2. Fresh Rose Face Mask // 3. Shiseido IBUKI Refining Moisturizer // 4. Shiseido Urban Environment Sunscreen // 5. Giovanni 2Chic Keratin & Argan Oil Shampoo // 6. Giovanni 2Chic Leave-in Brazilian Keratin & Argan Oil Conditioner // 7. Khiel’s Creme de Corps Body Lotion // 8. Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream

During winter, our skin is exposed to harsh environments such as dry air from the heater and cold winds that depletes the skin of its natural oil which helps keep the skin hydrated. With that said, you need to give your skin from head to toe the proper nourishment it needs to survive this winter. Everything from your scalp to your body, lips and nails all need special attention as the low humidity strips the moisture from them daily.

For my hair, I’ve been trying out two Giovanni products that I got from a local store, Dawson’s Market. Originally, I was supposed to host an event there in November, but unfortunately I was away for the Thanksgiving holiday, so couldn’t make it. If you’re ever in the Rockville area, be sure to stop by. Thankfully, I was able to stop in the store prior to check out the beauty products and so glad that I did. I love that the shampoo has keratin and argan oil to give my hair the extra moisture. As for the keratin argan oil leave-in treatment conditioner, I typically apply that to my scalp before heading to the gym. The heat that I exert from the gym helps condition my scalp during leaving it moisturized and healthy.

My skin has also been feeling a bit of dryness lately, so I applied the face mask one night in November. I absolutely love the coolness and the lovely rose scent as I applied the product to my face. After about 10 minutes, I rinsed it off and applied the moisturizer and my skin felt so moisturized throughout the night. I absolutely love the moisturizer, which is light enough to be applied during the daytime as well. Of course, just because the sun may not be shining often during winter months, your skin still needs to be protected from the UV-rays still present during the day by using sunscreen daily.

For the body, hubs surprisingly was the one who introduced me to the creme de corps body lotion from Khiel’s, which kept my skin feeling non-greasy, but still moisturized. Last but not least, do not forget the lips and nails. Adding a bit of Argan infinity cream to my lips and nail beds gave them that extra moisture and nourishment.

So there you have it, 8 products that I could not live without to help me survive this winter. I hope this was helpful to you too.

Please bundle up and stay warm!
