Winter Beauty Remedies

Funnily enough one of the things I took for granted while living in the South was how much easier winter is on your beauty routine. Since living up north, I've had to search Sephora & CVS for all of the perfect moisturizing, repairing, life-saving beauty aids I can add to my medicine cabinet. 

These are a few of my tried & true go-to winter beauty remedies for any ailment from chapped lips to pale winter skin! 

Winter Beauty Remedies

the winter beauty essentials:
 Forever 21 Polka Dot Cosmetic Bag:  I'm totally in love with this polka dot cosmetic bag- can't believe it's only 6.00

 Smith's Rosebud Salve: The ultimate moisturizer for chapped lips & hands- I love that it doesn't have a medicinal flavor & the adorable packaging

Stila Bronzing 10-in-1 BB Cream: I recently bought this instead of investing in a simple moisturizer because it eliminates a step in my beauty routine by smoothing, moisturizing, and bronzing my skin-- BB Creams are a beauty trend that's not going away!

Tresemme Climate Control Finishing Spray: This hair spray combats static- so you don't end up looking disheveled after sporting a cute knit hat

Aveda Dry Remedy Shampoo & Conditioner: I swear by this shampoo/conditioner, especially during winter. nothing makes my hair feel healthier & more moisturized

Tan Towels: It's definitely the FL girl in me that struggles to be pale all winter- these self tanning towelettes are much safer than tanning beds, and have a streak-free application

L'Occitane Hand Cream:  I had never experienced dry hands until I moved into a cold weather climate, nothing soothes them better than this ultra lush hand cream

Origins Whipped Ginger Souffle Body Cream:  This Origins body cream has a refreshing scent and is perfect for lathering on post-shower for some dry skin rehab

I seem to gravitate towards products with less chemicals and more natural ingredients-- they always seem to work that much better in the cold winter months.

What are your winter beauty essentials?

I am actually heading to Milwaukee/Chicago tomorrow!! i am staying with a friend in milwaukee and then we are going into chicago for a few days. this trip i am trying to get a feel for the different neighborhoods to live in, and hopefully network a lot. my goal is to move there spring/summer - whenever the stars align for a roommate and place to live. i will keep you updated. i'm not sure if you live near milwaukee or not, but if you do and you are free friday or tuesday, i'd love to meet up!
