There's actually a lot of things I love about winter, but one thing that'll never be a fave for me is the dry, cracking, dull skin that can come along with it. Having psoriasis, I understand how crucial it is to stay moisturized and hydrated. No one wants to cross the point of no return when it comes to dealing with flaky, itching, patchy anything. With that in mind, I've broken down my top 10 must-have items your skin needs to get through the rest of this season!
1). Bobbi Brown Lip Balm
THE BEST LIP BALM! It lasts forever and is super hydrating.
2). Tarte Cosmetics Sugar Scrub
This will be your best friend all year round if you ever find yourself with dry, cracked lips or just wanting to do a little extra exfoliating.
3). Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish
Perfect for getting off all that extra skin to reveal smooth, bright complexion.
4). Shower Oil
I leave this vague as I'm about to transition to using another oil that will be new to me. Currently, I'm using the L'Occitane Shower Oil which I LOVE but it is a tad pricey upfront. It's about to run out, and when it does I'll be looking to try the Kopari Shower Oil. I've heard great things and will definitely keep you all posted on my thoughts.
Aside from that, shower oil is my HOLY GRAIL. My skin is incredibly sensitive, to the point that I cannot use shaving cream. I used conditioner (not kidding) for soooooo long until I finally found shower oil and wow, what a difference. I will never ever go back, that's for sure! Oil doesn't irritate my skin and is extremely hydrating.
5). Clinique 72-Hour Moisture Surge
This has been a go-to of mine for quite some time! Love the texture and hydration this gives. I use it regularly in my morning routine.
6). Sol De Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream
I call this a tropical skin treat in a jar - I'm obsessed!
7). FAB Ultra Repair Cream
A total life saver - or should I say skin? You can put this anywhere and whatever dryness you might be facing, this little jar will have your back.
8). Herbivore Orchid Youth Preserving Facial Oil
A staple in my night time routine! It's lightweight but hydrating.
9). Kopari Lip Glossy
I use this every single morning. It smells like coconut and makes for a perfect picture-worthy pout at all times.
10). Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Masks
You can never go wrong with an eye mask, especially when it's gold! These will give your under eyes the little boost they need to survive those super cold days that feel like they're draining the life out of your skin.
