When thinking about dry winter skin, I used to primarily concern myself with serum and moisturizer. It just never occurred to me that what I used to clean it would make a difference–the difference-makers came later in the routine, right?
Now that it actually feels like winter in most of the US, it’s time to think about how in the world you’re going to retain any moisture in your body until April. Luckily (for you), this is a problem I have literally all the time, so I’ve done copious personal research and found some great things that work.
One of the trickiest winter beauty problems I’ve ever encountered is how to keep my lips from turning dry and chapped in the harsh Northeastern weather. It’s a problem I never had when I lived in more humid climates, and over the past four winters, I’ve gone through a lot of trial and error in how to fix it.
Even thought most people think of holiday shopping as a thing that starts the day after Thanksgiving, but retailers push it a little earlier every year. During our daily tours through the Internet’s best online retailers, we’ve noticed awesome beauty gift sets popping up all over the place, and because they’re almost all limited editions that will disappear and often not be restocked, it’s best to go ahead and shop them while they’re around.
