A Canadian winter is nothing but marvelous. The season takes us from peppermint lattes and cozy sweaters by the fireplace, to ice skating and cross-country skiing in the chilly winter air. Though we may love this cold, snowy season, our bodies may differ. With the crisp air comes dry skin, an itchy scalp, and most of us will lose that glowing tan we worked so hard on catching in the summertime. Here is a look at winter’s must-have beauty products to keep you and your body happy and healthy throughout the long months of winter.
LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics
The great thing about this vegan and organic moisturizer is that it was remarkably created to suit all skin types. So, if winter is leaving your skin dry or causing it to act differently then it normally does, Gorgeous by LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics is perfect for you. This product contains many organic ingredients such as extra virgin olive and wheat germ oils and orange blossom honey that naturally cleanse your pores. Not only does it moisturize, it also softens and brightens your skin. LUSH’s Gorgeous is ideal all year round, but extra beneficial in the winter.
Tea Tree Special
Nothing is worse than having dandruff on your mind and in your hair all season long. Sometimes it seems like moisturizing your dry scalp and getting rid of dandruff for good is impossible. Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Special shampoo will leave you dandruff and itch free all winter long. This shampoo contains tea tree oil that helps cleanse and moisturize the scalp, leaving it shiny and flake free.
Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion
If you’re looking for a way to keep up that summertime glow but aren’t keen on the unhealthy effects of tanning beds, Olay’s Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion is excellent for you. This moisturizer will hydrate your skin, all while progressively enhancing its tone without leaving any streaks or orange tints on your skin. While using this lotion, you’ll be maintaining that summertime glow without damaging your skin.
Not only do your skin and scalp become incredibly dry when the weather turns cold, but so do your lips. Norwegian Formula, a lip moisturizer by Neutrogena, helps soften your chapped, winter lips. Apply this product throughout the day, alone or with lipstick to keep them looking and feeling moisturized.
