Winter Beauty Essentials

by ashleyd on December 11, 2013

Winter has officially arrived in Geneva after a longer than normal Fall. This morning I walked out to 25 degree temps and frost so thick it looked like a blanked of light snow. After skiing all weekend in Verbier my skin is screaming for help. My nose is peeling and my lips are so chapped they are bleeding!  I have a spa day booked with my mom and brother’s girlfriend in two weeks when I’m home in Savannah but between now and then I’m trying to winterize my skin routine as much as possible.

Dry, parched skin isn’t pleasant to experience and it sure as heck makes applying makeup and lipstick ten times harder! Peeling skin? No thank you!

Below are my favorite winter beauty essentials which fill my medicine cabinet from December through April. Many of these items could also make great stocking stuffers for anyone and everyone on your list. I even pinned Bo’s favorite lip balm so you can find a little something for the mister on your list!

I’ve never heard of that! Quite a funny name but I’ll look into it! Thanks! :)

Burts Bee’s are my GO TO’s during the dry winter months, especially in the mountains!

I love Sugar products because they have SPF, and L’Occitane hand cream is one of my favorites. I also have been using Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream, which I love because it keeps my skin hydrated and soft, and I use a combination of It’s A 10 and Macadamia Hair Leave-In Conditioner to keep my hair soft. Thanks for sharing your favorites. I would love to try some of these!

I am a Fresh Sugar Lip Balm addict. I use the Rose shade all day long, and at night, I moisturize with the “Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment” which is another balm similar to the one you pictured above, but kicks it up another notch. Highly recommend.

Thanks Lauren – I’ll add it to my Pinterest board! Sounds great!
