Five Winter Beauty Problems Solved


This week's weather has been brutal! We've made super nutritious soup and super delicious hot chocolate, but nothing seems to shake off this cold! We're voting to run off to a warmer climate! To make matters worse it sort of seems like our hair and skin are like a misbehaving toddler and this certainly doesn't make the cold any easier to cope with. The winter weather brings unique beauty challenges, from static hair to dry skin, chapped lips and watery eyes. So until we can make our great escape to somewhere warm and sunny, we might as well make the best of things around here and share some winter beauty tips.



1. 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 and try a once per week treatment like Harklinikken Hair Hydrating Mask ($56). 

2. 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 like our favorite Mason Pearson Brush ($150). And under no circumstances should you take that flat iron to your head without using a thermal protectent!

3. 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 and one super hydrating moisturizer that we've found is Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer ($10). 

4. 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 ($35).

5. 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 and our pick of the moment is a pair of Dior Reflected Aviator Sunglasses ($550).
