Winter is beautiful and fun for a good number of reasons -- the holiday season, snow, sweater weather, etc. -- but it's not as much fun for our skin as it can be for us.
When the windchill is getting me down so much that even my fave slouchy sweater can't help me, there are a handful of beauty products that I rely on to pick me up and leave me feeling better than ever. From waking me up to keeping my skin and hair hydrated and healthy, these products have it all!
Winter term is arguably the worst part of the school year. It's cold and rainy outside, nothing is really going on, and the early darkness makes the motivation to go to class or the library approximately zero. When I need a caffeine alternative to keep me awake and productive, I reach for this amazing e.l.f. Eye Refresh serum! It's packed full of healthy and natural ingredients that, along with the cool metal of the rollerball used to apply the serum, refresh your senses and make your eyes feel wider and much more awake. The best part? It's available at Target or online for only $3! No more giving in due to heavy and cloudy eyes.
If you haven't heard of ButterElixir yet, you need to know about them now. They feature a range of products that are nothing but good for your hair, skin, and lips. I keep my lip cream in my purse for on-the-go winter days, and it's also perfect for moisturizing dry hands throughout he day as well. The skin and hair oils are GODSENDS when it comes to repairing damaged skin and strands at night -- especially from harsh weather conditions and bleach. I like to apply some oil to my hair after I shower since it makes it easier to brush out without tearing my locks, and it also smells amazing. The oils are concentrated and powerful without being harsh or damaging, so a little bit goes a long way towards targeting problem areas.
This set of St. Ives products from Influenster makes me feel like spring is right around the corner, and I couldn't be more excited about it. I love scrubbing away dead winter skin cells with the Even & Bright body wash, featuring the invigorating scents of lemon and mandarin. After drying off, the Refresh & Revive Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion is the perfect tool to lock in moisture before heading out into the cold, dry air. And the 2-in-1 Oatmeal Face Scrub and Mask?! Genius! It's the perfect go-to for scrubbing off post- holiday celebration makeup and for reviving my skin on Sunday mornings.
