Winter Beauty Problems Solved


Sometimes during the colder months, it does sort of seem like our hair and skin are like a misbehaving toddler. The winter weather brings unique beauty challenges, from static hair to dry skin, chapped lips and watery eyes, but hope is far from lost. Just as we adapt our beauty routine for summertime beauty challenges, we too can adjust our winter beauty routine and look our best.

Static Hair: Both an external and internal problem. While we can do little to control the external dry air sans remaining in a hermetically sealed environment, we have control over how we treat our hair. Dry hair is the underlying issue with static hair problems. So getting hydration back into those tresses is the part of the solution. You can afford to skip shampoos during the winter and opt to use a dry shampoo. 

Dry Hair: When you’ve worked to get hydration back in your hair, don’t zap it out with stylers. While you may think that you need a little extra gel or finishing spray to control those flyaways, you’re actually weighing you hair down and drying your hair out! Opt for fewer products, alcohol-free stylers, and change up your styling tools. Use your blow dryer on a lower setting with a diffuser and a natural bristled brush. And under no circumstances should you take that flat iron to your head without using a thermal protectent! 

Dry Skin: For starters, resist the temptation to take long, hot showers or baths. Hot showers and baths feel fantastic on a cold winter morning, but they’re actually hydration stealers. Skip the bath and opt for a shower spending no more than 15 minutes and keep the temperature warm. Use a hydrating shower gel and after your shower, you need to get moisture back into your skin so don't skip the body moisturizer! 

Chapped Lips: Easily one of the biggest winter weather beauty issues. Aside from cold temperatures and blistery winds, a big contributor to chapped lips is the habit of licking your lips when they feel dry. Get hooked on hydration with lip balm. For nighttime, grab a non-petroleum based product like Waxelene.

Watery Eyes: Between blistery winds and sun glare no wonder our peepers start to water. While you can opt for all the waterproof cosmetics available, why not take a super easy preventative measure like sunglasses? Aside from protecting your peepers from the elements, sunglasses are a fabulous way to stylishly give your eyes a rest from sun glare.
