Winter Beauty Essentials

We’re getting a ton of cold weather already, which means Winter is right around the corner! It’s pretty common to switch out the clothes in our wardrobes for each season, but it’s just as important to start incorporating new skincare and other beauty products. Winter is known for bringing a lot of cold, dry air and that’s something our favorite Summer products just can’t stand up to. Instead, we need more nourishing, moisturizing options that will keep the skin happy throughout the cooler months.

Hand cream is typically one of the first things that come to mind when thinking about preparing for cold weather. There are plenty to choose from, but the one I’ve recently been loving is the Eos Shea Better Hand Cream in the Pomegranate Raspberry scent. It’s not the thickest formula available, but I love how quickly it absorbs and that it doesn’t leave behind any greasy residue. It claims to last throughout hand washing and this deep berry scent is totally appropriate for the new season.

Olive oil is one of my favorite beauty secrets all year long, but it is especially useful during the cooler weather. It’s a great moisturizer that can be applied to chapped lips or dry cuticles, along with many other areas. Olive oil is so versatile outside of the kitchen that I even have a full blog post dedicated to all the ways I love to incorporate it into my beauty routine.

Even though Summer is gone and being outside is almost completely unbearable right now, that doesn’t mean we have to give up the warm Summer glow. That’s where self tan comes in! The St. Tropez Classic Self Tan is one of my favorites because it gives such a natural color to the skin (shown in my full review) and lasts much longer than most other formulas. I also really like using the St. Moriz Radiant Glow Tan Boosting Facial Serum because it’s more of a gradual tan and is easy to apply in the mornings with my regular moisturizer.

Speaking of moisturizers, those are one of the most important products to apply during the Winter. The cold, dry air sucks all the moisture out of the skin so we have to double up on thicker products to avoid dry patches and rough texture. Two of my favorites are the Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum topped with the Pixi Hydrating Milky Lotion. This is such a luxurious combo and is one of the only duos that still feels comfortable, even for those of us with extremely oily skin.

Lip balm may be the number one beauty essential when it comes to battling the cold Winter air. As soon as it gets a little chilly, I start carrying a lip balm with me everywhere I go and apply them all the time. My favorite during the day are the Eos stick balms because they’re the only lip balms I’ve used that actually healed and nourished dry, chapped lips. Before bed, I like to apply the Eos The Hero Extra Dry Lip Treatment. It’s more of a thicker balm that will last longer throughout the night.

Facial sprays are one of my favorite types of products because they’re so refreshing and fun to use. When the cooler weather hits, I switch up my usual lightweight spray for something like the Derma E Hydrating Mist that has a few nourishing ingredients. While I use this to refresh my face throughout the day, I’m also adding extra hydration with its Hyaluronic Acid, Rose Water, and Coconut Water. They also have a few other sprays with essential oils that are just as enjoyable!

If it weren’t for these products, I don’t even want to think about the condition my skin would be in during the Winter. Even for those with oily skin, like myself, hydration is so important for healthy, happy, balanced skin. Over these next few months, I won’t be caught without nourishing moisturizers, olive oil, or lip balm!
