The changing of the seasons usually means we’re also changing up our beauty products and routines. In winter, we’re switching to products that hydrate, nourish, moisturize, and do us all the favors to combat the harsh elements that winter brings. We’ve got you covered with some of our favorite beauty products to not only give your body the nourishment it needs, but keep you looking and feeling your best throughout winter.
Unless you live somewhere warm or tropical, wintertime means dry, cold air, wind, sleet, and snow — which means we need to be extra nice to our skin and hair. Here are some of our favorites to keep you nice and nourished in the cold months ahead.
Get a winter ready face with MyChelle Dermaceuticals. On cleansed skin, start with the Perfect C PRO Speed Peel — a professional level peel with 10% L-Ascorbic Acid and 25% Citrus Fruit to reveal radiant, glowing skin. Ascorbic Acid is an organic compound with antioxidant properties, and a form of Vitamin C. The peel will get rid of dead skin and keep your face looking young and fresh through winter.
After using a peel, it’s important to nourish the skin, especially because of the cold weather conditions. You can do this using the Bio-Firm Hydrogel Concentrate. This gel is comprised of concentrated 2% Hyaluronic Acid — which is what allows your skin to retain moisture. This deeply nourishing and hydrating gel will help tone the skin with Alpine Nunatak™ Plant Stem Cells and Crocus Chrysanthus Bulb Extract, while providing anti-aging and brightening benefits. Dab a small amount on your damp face and neck twice a day and follow with your favorite moisturizer.
We also love the Perfect C™ Radiance Lotion — a nutrient restoring lotion that hydrates, brightens, and protects the skin with its potent 12% dose of L-Ascorbic Acid and Plant C-Stem™ ingredients. Apply one pump to your face and neck twice a day, following it with your favorite sun protection. This will keep your skin nice and moisturized in the cold elements and dry air conditions.
Not only do these MyChelle Dermaceuticals products renew, brighten, and rejuvenate the skin, they are free of GMO, gluten, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, silicones, sulfates, ureas, artificial fragrances, and colors. They are also vegan, cruelty-free, and recyclable so you know you are using products developed by a responsible company that truly cares about you and our environment.
Evian Hydrating Facial Spray
Combat dry winter skin with the ultimate face refresher, the Evian Hydrating Facial Spray. This fine mist spray is pure Evian natural spring water, used to hydrate and nourish the skin, and perfect to use in dry, cold weather. The neutral 7.2 pH is great for all skin types and can be used with any makeup products. You can spray this before and after you apply your makeup — or any time your face needs a refreshing drink of water.
Spray your face before you apply makeup to ensure you’re hydrated, prepped, and ready for makeup. Spray after your makeup is finished to set it and help it melt into your skin, brighten your face, and give it a natural finish. It is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, so you know you’re only using the best on your skin.
Studio Gear Cake Eyeliner and Impactfull Pro Mascara
For most, wintertime means cozying up to the fire as opposed to spending the day outside like we do in the warmer months. This usually means we’re spending less time getting ready, but doesn’t mean we have to completely ditch our makeup routine. Even if we’re not doing a full face of makeup, it’s easy to throw on some moisturizer, eyeliner, and mascara and still feel put together when we have to run errands. Begin your look with Studio Gear Cake Eyeliner — a highly pigmented, water based, pressed powder. Dampen a small angled brush and the eyeliner glides on smoothly.
You can create a bold, sharp line or smudge it for a smokey effect. To complete your look, pair it with Studio Gear’s Impactfull Pro T.L.S. Mascara which thickens, lengthens, and separates lashes to give you beautifully long, voluminous lashes — exactly what you want in a minimal makeup look. The fluffy wand applies the product in a way that allows maximum coverage without creating clumpy “tarantula” lashes. The black mascara gives bold color and won’t dry out your lashes — after all, we’re getting enough “drying out” from the cold winter air. Studio Gear has generously offered a discount code to our readers — enter “SGEYES” for 10% off!
