Winter Skin Saviors
We don't know about you, but our skin goes to shit in the winter. The dry heat and dry cold air makes cuticles crack, skin become patchy: oily in some areas and flaky in others, and the skin around the eyes gets so dry it hurts to touch it.
Well, don't you worry. We've rounded up our favorites in winter skincare so you can pamper yourself while sipping some chamomile tea and dreaming of summer.
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
Magic is right. First, let us tell you the ingredients: Olive Oil, Bees Wax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, and Bee Propolis. Doesn't that sound magical already?! This cream is great for all-over winter skin. We recommend using it at night for extra pampering. You'll look like a goddess in the morning, with extra soft skin. Use sparingly - a little truly goes a long way. Warm between your palms before application. Want to take it up a notch? Give your skin a 10 or 20-minute massage with Egyptian Magic. Bonus points: its great for fading scars, treating burns, KP, eczema, hand cream, after shave, lip balm...and more. Truly magical.
Alpha H Essential Hydration Cream
Great for day and night, this cream repairs and protects dry, delicate, and sensitive skin, especially in the winter. If your skin becomes patchy and red during the winter, this will help with reducing the redness, rebuilding broken capillaries, and gently hydrating. Massage into your skin until absorbed.
Regu-Cea: helps treat red, itchy or flaky skin.
Arnica: basically a healing type of sunflower.
Solomon’s Seal: reduces inflammation.
Cypress Berries: help heal sensitive skin.
Coral Seaweed: elasticity and hydration.
B.O. Bedient Natural Deodorant
Everybody smells. Even in the winter. Yes, you too. You think you're good at hiding it? Nope. But do you really need to overload your body with harmful deodorant, especially in the winter? No! B.O. Bedient is not only soft and gentle on your underarms, it smells absolutely amazing, whatever scent you choose. Add all-natural ingredients such as Organic coconut oil, Lavender Oil, Beeswax, Tea Tree Oil, Vitamin E - and you have such a gentle yet effective deodorant. Oh, and the story of the founders is pretty incredible as well. After being diagnosed with triple positive breast cancer at the age of 43, one of the founders Eliza and her best friend Katie found links between breast cancer and the chemicals used in antiperspirants such as aluminum, which blocks pores which release sweat. They couldn't find a natural deodorant that was healthy and which worked - so they decided to make one. And here it is. And it's wonderful. And we love it so much. And go get it.
Bathorium CRUSH Bath Soak
Does anything sound better than getting home after a long, cold, dark day and taking a bath? While drinking wine or tea (or maybe just vodka on ice - #sorrynotsorry) and watching Netflix? Not only do Bathorium's bath soaks smell amazing, they are soothing for tired, dry, sensitive winter skin. So do it. Love yourself.
Acure Seriously Glowing Serum
This seriously glowing serum is seriously amazing for tired winter skin. Use as face oil and/or serum. Under or over your moisturizer. Or just in the middle of the day. Or at night as an extra moisturizing treatment. You can't really go wrong with it. Also great for annoying winter breakouts.
