Top 3 Winter Skin Remedies
As March rolls in, winter is coming to a close. However, that dry and ashy skin that falls victim to the cold winter weather is still very much out in full force. I know people, this is totally and completely unacceptable. I'm sure that everyone can agree that dry and ashy skin is anything but cute. Have no fear- beauty guru Cass is here! Today, I'm going to share with you my top three winter skin remedies that will cure that dry and damaged skin!
The first miracle moisture worker is The True Cream Aqua Bomb by Belif.
This cream is one of my personal favorites! True to it's name "Aqua Bomb" leaves your face feeling moisture filled for the rest of the day. I've found this product gave the best results if put on two/three times per day. Once when you wake up in the morning (about ten minutes before you begin your makeup routine), once in the middle of the day (for non-makeup wearers), and once before bed at night. On days where I don't wear makeup (you gotta let your skin breathe sometimes) I like to go HAM with this product and make sure that my skin is drenched in this sucker during the winter months especially on #NoMakeupMonday. A great thing about this product? It comes in two sizes! The 25mL size comes in at $22 and the 50mL comes in at $38. So feel free to try it out and then if and when you fall in love, that 50mL tub is always available!
The next product to check out is the Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream by Fresh.
This face cream is another one of my favorites! An added benefit delivered through this product is the amazing scent. The beautiful rose scent is beautiful in this jar and even more beautiful when it is sitting on your skin! This product lives in my purse! I just can't get enough of it. The cream goes on so smoothly and with the extra you may have on your fingers after face application, you can rub into your hands. Okay let's be honest: I'm just making excuses at this point. I need more excuses to put this all over my skin all the time everyday. While the Belif Aqua Bomb lotion is perfect before bed and in the morning, this is my "everyday-keep-in-my-purse-use-way-too-much-to-the-point-where-I-smell-like-a-rose-lotion." 50mL of this puppy will run you a pretty penny coming in at $40, but if you like your skin far from dehydrated, this is the way to go.
The final product on this list is by one of my favorite brands: GLAMGLOW. It's the THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment.
This face mask (while a smidge on the expensive side) is one of the best hydration masks on the market. It goes on a thick orangey-khaki looking color. From my experience, if you let this mask rest on your face anywhere from 15-30 minutes, your skin will thank you. After waiting your desired time, wash the mask off with warm water and a washcloth. Run your hands over your skin and breathe in a sigh of relief. Moisturized skin never felt so good. This is a treatment mask. So you don't need to do it everyday. In fact, I would recommend anywhere from 1-2 times a week during the cold winter weather. It's a great little pick-me-up for your skin when the dry air blows through. Another cool thing about this? It also comes in two sizes! 15mL comes in at $22 and the 50mL comes in at $69.
Remember, a great way to try out some of these products is to walk into a Sephora and ask an associate for a sample! They will give you a sample of most products for you to take home so you can try the product free of charge before you decide to spend any money!
