Skin Survival Guide For The Cold

Hello Everyone!

So it’s getting to be about that time again to add some extra moisture to your skincare routine. The cold weather is approaching (Yessss! Finally!), & the chilly air, unfortunately, does such a good job of drying out the skin. Clothes do most of the work by protecting the majority of our skin, but our face & hands take the biggest hit. I’ve gathered a haul of amazing products to help keep my skin glowing, plump, & moisturized no matter how cold it gets outside.

Glossier is such a cult favorite right now, & with good reason. These cruelty-free products are all about helping you have healthy, glowy skin you can be proud of. I particularly love that philosophy because up until about a year ago, I really hated my skin. So much so, that I got really into makeup so that I could cover it up really well. Now, I can happily say, I am starting to love my skin. I opt for a tinted moisturizer instead of a full coverage foundation on a daily basis, & I am not afraid to be seen without any makeup! I never thought I would see such a change in my skin, but I have, & it’s been life-changing. (Writing this post has got me thinking I should do a skin journey post…leave a comment below if that’s something you’re interested in!)

I’ve been putting these products to the test for a while now, & I can safely say that most of them are must-haves for the upcoming cold weather.

If you’re reading this, & you are a human, you need a balm dotcom (or 6). This is the gateway Glossier product, hands down. The flavors and tints are perfection, & they actually provide moisture. How many times have you bought a lip balm & wondered if it actually did anything for your lips? Like every single time? Yep, this product is not like that. They feel incredible, while looking effortless on the lips. The best part is, it’s also a universal salve. Not only can you use it on your lips, but on your cuticles & dry patches of your skin. These balms also make great presents & stocking stuffers. (Christmas is right around the corner!!!)

The Milky Jelly Cleanser is another Glossier favorite. It’s texture is unlike any other cleanser I’ve ever used. Exactly like it’s name, this jelly-like cleanser effortlessly takes off make-up & cleans your skin, all while somehow adding moisture to your face. At the moment, it’s my favorite in-shower cleanser, & the little moisture boost it provides is definitely going to help my skin survive the cold this season.

I use a combination of Super Glow & the Priming Moisture Rich every third day for my nightly skincare routine. I get a bit of the moisturizer, then add 3-4 drops of Super Glow to it & place it all over my face, neck & chest. You would not believe how dreamy this combination smells & feels right before heading off to bed! Not to mention how happy my skin is in the morning: fresh, plump, glowing, & ready to take on the day.

Lastly, for those days when your skin just looks tired & dehydrated, let the Moisturizing Moon Mask be your go-to. This mask is packed with ingredients to help tone, provide oxygen, & help to plump & rejuvenate the skin, while providing the extra moisture your skin needs. I know I will be reaching for this one all A/W long.
