Winter Beauty Essentials
With the winter season in full swing, many of us are encountering colder weather and harsher conditions for our hair and skin. It is vital to take extra care in your beauty routines during the winter to make not only ensure the perfect application of beauty products, but to repair any damage the cold weather might cause!
Here is our guide to all the essential beauty products you'll need this winter!
Step 1: Prep
Prepping your skin is the key to a perfect makeup application, no matter what the weather! But in the winter when our skin is drier and needs more moisture, setting a good base is the most important step.
We recommend starting off with a hydrating toner. This toner from Advanced Clinicals is perfect to revitalize and re-hydrate any dull skin!
You'll also want to incorporate a hydrating primer into your routine before you apply any face makeup. Primers are great for improving the longevity of your base makeup, but in the winter time, you'll want a primer that hydrates your skin as well as allows for perfect application of foundation and concealer.
Taking off your makeup is just as important as what you do before you put it on! When you're done for the day, these gentle cleansers and makeup removers are the perfect winter inclusions into your nighttime routine. You will want to avoid cleansers and makeup removers that will dry out your skin or make you have to tug and pull to get stubborn eye makeup off.
Step 3: Hydrate
Whether you're about to settle in for the night or want to touch up dry skin during the day, products that offer maximum hydration are key!
Protect and nourish your lips with a good lip balm! Wear alone or layer under your favorite lip products to protect the delicate skin that is often the most exposed during cold weather.
Don't forget to hydrate your hair as well! Hair can get especially dry in the winter and you'll need some great hydrating products to add that moisture back into your strands.
A great way to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized is to apply a cream that will keep working after you put it on! This Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is the perfect inclusion to your winter skincare.
