Winter Rescue: my favorite winter beauty products!

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

If you're anything like me, you definitely struggle with the winter weather. I always find myself drinking a bunch of water, trying to combat the de-hydrating cold! Over the years I've also found several products that help keep my lips, hair and skin hydrated and today I've decided to share those with you! Enjoy!

Anti-static spray (here

John Frieda "frizz-ease' leave-in conditioner (usa here, cad here)

Carmex lip moisturizer (usa here, cad here)
Chanel "hydra beauty creme" (here)
Lush "pearl" massage bar (usa here, cad here)

Hair
Anti-static spray and dryer sheets, are definitely unconventional yet successful ways at taming "fly-aways" and static in your hair. Just spray it on the ends of your hair (not too close), or gently "comb" the dryer sheet through you hair, and this will solve your static problem in a matter of seconds! I also use "leave-in" conditioner (specifically the one from John Frieda) for added moisture. Although I also use "regular" conditioner while in the shower, leave-in conditioner is a great way to add lightweight moisture. I like to spray it on my ends to combat static and cold weather induced split-ends.

Body
I absolutely love the Aveeno products in the winter! Aveeno products are great since they are of higher quality, reasonably priced and can be found at the drug-store! I use a larger bottle of the moisturizer on my body, and the one pictured above on my hands. I love the way that it dries and treats a variety of  skin related issues. I use it in combination with the shower gel, and my skin feels even more moisturized that it does naturally in the summer months!

I included my favourite Dove antiperspirant in the photo. I actually use this year round, however have found that it holds up great throughout the winter months! In addition, I've tried several antiperspirants but have always found that the Dove brand is the most moisturizing out of the typical drug-store brand.

I've recently taken a liking to Lush products. I was actually given this massage bar as a gift and have recently purchased others! This is essentially an extremely hydrating soap bar with a wonderful smell. I like to alternate this with Aveeno shower gel, and use it every other day.

Face
I have been using the Chanel "hydra beauty creme" for years, and it is hands-down my favourite winter moisturizer! This is a pretty standard Chanel facial cream, and works for several skin types. I have combination skin in the winter months and therefore certain parts of my face become horribly dry. This cream is very "build-able", which helps in terms of keeping my oily facial areas lightly moisturized and my dry facial areas heavily moisturized. Since it is easily build-able, I would say that it can also be used by those with normal skin and those with slightly dry skin.*

In the winter months I am always using some sort of hydrating lip balm. For this type of weather I especially like to use something "medicated" for added long-lasting moisture. The Carmex lip balm is a great option for winter hydration. I also like the chapstick medicated lip balm.

*Fun Fact: Many Chanel beauty products sold in the United-States are fabricated in the United-States, yet Chanel beauty products sold in Canada are shipped from France. For this reason many Americans purchase their Chanel beauty products from Canada for "authenticity".
