Winter Beauty Essentials


We’ve officially hit winter (though in my mind, December = winter), and every year along with ice and snow, we also get dry skin and chapped lips. What fun gifts! I’ve got a few favorite winter beauty essentials that help beat the brutal cold air!

Lips: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask ($26)

This smooths my super chapped lips and nourishes with a blend of organic agave nectar and jojoba oil, plus it has antioxidant trans-resveratrol (used to combat aging). I find that if I make a habit of putting this on before bed my lips are seriously transformed. Yes, it costs more than your average drug store lip balm, but as someone who has tried every lip balm on the market with no results, this is worth every penny! One of my favorite beauty products of ALL TIME.

Hands: Burt’s Bees Hand Salve ($8.99)

If you’re past the point of lotion and needing repair cream for seriously chapped skin, this will do the trick. Using botanical oils and beeswax this will moisturize even the driest skin. Need some extra relief? Smooth on the salve and slip on some cotton gloves before going to sleep. This will lock that moisture in over night (and you won’t rub it into your eyes by mistake!) and you’ll notice a huge difference in the morning!

Cuticles: Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream ($6)

What can I say? I love me some Burt’s Bees! With Sweet Almond Oil and Cocoa Seed Butter, this will soften cuticles while Vitamin E and Sunflower Oil will nourish brittle nails. I’ve struggled with dry, cracked cuticles for as long as I can remember and this is the first product I’ve found that continues to make a difference.

Feet: Arbonne FC5 Cooling Foot Creme ($22)

I’ve loved all Arbonne products I’ve tried. This is moisturizing and non-greasy, which is a big plus!


Scalp: Head & Shoulders ($5.99)

You just can’t beat Head & Shoulders for moisturizing and preventing that awful, dry itchy scalp.


Hair: Moroccan Oil ($35)

Along with the scalp, I find my hair feeling a bit dry on those cold winter days. I’m a big fan of Moroccan Oil which helps lock in some moisture (without my hair getting greasy), plus, it seems to help it dry faster! It’s ultra light and leaves my hair shiny and silky. Plus, this bottle will last you forever! (I use about a nickel size amount every time I apply.)
