Winterizing Your Skin

Wintertime is near and I know we get our cars winterized, but what about our skin?  Do we really prep it for this time of year?  Moisturizing is just as important as cleansing and skin protection.  These are some products that can help you get your skin ready for winter (and I have a feeling it’s going to be a brutal one).  I’ve even added these items to my personal “items to get” for this season and since I’m a label reading queen when it comes to products (the less the better), these items have great ingredients that will result in great benefits for your skin.  Since I’m all about supporting handmade and small businesses most of these products fall into those categories, so let’s help support great people creating great products.

  1.  Organic Pineapple and Papaya Exfoliant by Fresh Organic Body Care is made with organic and natural ingredients and is for all types of skin.  Which is great for me since I have a combination of skin types. ($45)
  2. My Sister’s Shea Butter by The Staton Sisters made with 100% unrefined shea butter and oils like olive and grape seed that are sure to keep you moisturized and ash free. ($6)
  3. Buttercup and Jake Lip Balm made with only six ingredients and very gentle and safe.  A simple lip balm that will keep your lips moisturized. ($13 for set of 3)
  4. Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base gives the sun protection you need, especially in the winter.  Very lightweight and absorbs well, so it’s great for oily skin too. ($39)
  5. Derby City Soap Co ‘s hand cream has five ingredients, two are coconut and avocado oil and will leave your hands and cuticles soft.  Hands get extremely dry during the winter, keeping them moisturized is extremely important. ($10)
  6. Water Bottle with Infuser Drinking water is vital to keep your skin well hydrated, especially with the changing seasons.  You can even make drinking water interesting by adding fruit and veggies to your infuser. ($9.99)
  7. Bio Active Organic Under Eye Cream Around the eyes can be one of the driest spots on our skin, keep it hydrated.  This cream is very light and can be used on all skin types. ($6)
  8. HoMedics Humidifier will actually help prevent parched skin by keeping it hydrated.  If you sit at a desk for majority of your day like I do, a small desk one like this is perfect. ($20)
  9. Goatmeal and Honey Soap is a mild soap made with goat milk, honey and coconut milk.  Your skin will love these richly moisturizing ingredients.  ($2.49)
  10. Dry Body Brush will help encourage circulation and brush away dead skin leaving your skin smooth.  ($10)
