CHIC BEAUTY: WINTER SKINCARE SOLUTIONS






















In the last post, I spent some time sharing my three favorite ways to ward of winter's chill with January style-inspired outfits that make cold weather dressing a little bit more bearable.  In keeping with that theme, I decided to share my never fail steps to save your skin from winter's wrath.

S T E P   O N E:  HELLO HYDRATION!
If there's one thing skin craves in the wintertime it's hydration.  This comes as no surprise to the skin care industry and, as a result, the options for plumping your skin full of moisture are plenty.  My favorite of all those I've tried so far is still Josie Maran's Argan Oil.  All natural and completely compatible with your skin's inner workings, this liquid gold in a bottle will have your skin looking freshly hydrated and feeling baby soft on the outside while being completely nourished and strengthened on the inside.  Add to this first layer of soft and supple with an extra rich eye cream your eyes are craving and the protective layer of moisture your face needs.  Bobbi Brown comes to the rescue with her Extra Repair Moisture Cream for eyes which imparts intensive hydration with the use of shea butter.  Philosophy saves face with its Hope in a Jar Night Cream complete with antioxidants and glycol acid to renew, restore and replenish your skin.

S T E P   T W O:  SMOOTH OUT THE ROUGH SPOTS
Be sure to keep your body as soft as your face by routinely exfoliating dead skin cells in order to reveal skin's fresh and radiant cells hiding below the surface.  Some quick, easy and effective ways to get the job done include Laura Mercier's Body & Bath Scrub in Creme de Pistachio, B. Kamins AHA + BHA Gommage and Paula's Choice RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion.

S T E P   T H R E E:  PAMPER & PROTE
The last step you want to remember is to always pamper and protect your skin from head to toe.  Josie Maran leads the way again with her two skincare superstars, the Whipped Argan Oil Hand Cream and Whipped Argan Oil Ultra-Hydrating Body Butter.  Both are lusciously rich and creamy and will leave you and your skin atop cloud nine.  Don't forget your feet this time of year.  Keep them smooth and soft with a great pedicure tool like this Micro-Pedi foot exfoliator from Emjoi.  And finally, keep your kisses coming by smoothing on a lip protectant like this Jurlique Rose Love Balm for lips.  Oh so lovely!
