Top 5 Winter Beauty Essentials

Beat Those Winter Blues!

With the seasons changing, so should your beauty routine. However we don't have to sacrifice the products we love most for lesser buys. Upgrade your beauty essentials to match your current skin and hair regime.

Winter Beauty Essential #1; Hemp Hand Butter

Forget cold, brittle hands. Seal in moisture and warmth with this organic hemp hand butter from the Body Shop. Daily irritations caused to your hands from contact and hand washing causes your skin to become rough so it is important that you smooth them out with a hand butter rather than cream and hand creams apply only a small, thin layer to your skin, drying them out faster. (I have this and it does wonders for my hands!)

Winter Beauty Essential #2: BB Cream

BB Cream has been all the talk lately thanks to it's miraculous, fluid coverage on problem skin. Colder weather sometimes dries out your skin and resolves it to becoming more prone to blackheads, bumps and scarring. Instant fix your problem areas by applying a pea sized amount to them and gently spreading it in circular motions with two fingers and voila! Effortless skin in an instant.

                                                Winter Beauty Essential #3: EOS Lip Balm

Dry weather often means dry lips. Keep yours moisturized and soft at all times with this new, convenient lip balm from EOS. The line offers a range of different flavors from Blueberry Acai to HoneySuckle HoneyDew, yummy! Apply this balm to your lips ever so often to beat the cold and restore your lips to their smooth state. Your lips will thank you. (I have the Sweet Mint balm and I am loving it!)

Winter Beauty Essential #4: Moisturizing Concealer

Concealer is the perfect cover up underneath your foundation. This one by Benefit has a moisturizing agent so not only will you be covering up problem areas, your skin will remain smooth and supple. What's not to love?

Winter Beauty Essential #5: Morrocan Argan Penetrating Hair Oil

Restore your lack-luster locks back to their glorious prime! Argan oil is a well-known organic beauty ingredient that penetrates the oil and seals in each individual strand of your hair and locks in moisture and shine. After deep conditioning, smooth this oil out on your hair working your way from the roots to the tips.

Let me know which winter beauty essential you cannot go a day without?
