Beauty: Winterizing

It's good and cold here in NC we are preparing for #snowpocalypse part 2; aka potentially 1 inch of snow that will shut us down for two days. (Don't hate, we don't know what to do with snow.) Cold weather tends to dry out my skin terribly and, while I usually don't have to do too much skin maintenance, this time of year forces me to be a little more vigilant about a routine. One of my bigger problems is that my lips completely dry out and get flaky, making lipstick look super weird and not awesome. I've been using the Sugar Lip Polish from fresh., which makes things worse before they get better, but ultimately really helps smooth and moisturize chapped lips. I top my scrubbed pout with Smith's Minted Rose lip balm which is really heavy and adds the slightest hint of color. 

I have a similar face routine. When I was looking for a scrub, the guy at the Chanel counter was like, "let's be real, the Clinique 7-Day Scrub is the only thing you need." I appreciated the #truth; it's a classic, it's affordable and you know it works. Why bother with anything else. For moisture, Beautycounter's face oils are the shiz. If you have dry skin, you owe it to yourself to try it. It's a little on the pricey side, but well worth it. The Lustro #2 is the one I've been using. You can feel the difference almost immediately.

Winter means I can't let my hair dry, so I really love the Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil, which helps keep my ends healthy since it's exposed to the hair dryer so much more this time of year. I also get really dry hands because I'm an obsessive hand-washer, which means my nails tend to get a little brittle too. Julep's Oxygen Nail Treatment helps keep them healthy and shiny. What do you use to fight winter skin?
