Baby, It’s Cold Outside! My Favorite Winter Dry Skin Fixes

No matter where you live, winter weather can be very drying.  Over the years, I’ve tried countless products to keep my skin from getting too dry.  Some work, others not so much.  Here are a few of my favorites that I think you’ll like too.  Your skin (and lips!) will thank you for it! 🙂

For hands:

I’ve been looking for a hand lotion that was “the one” for years.  Last year, I finally found it – Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl.  I’m telling you… this stuff is the business!  It’s touted as an anti-aging hand and cuticle cream, has an SPF of 25, and it smells amazing.  I wish I could insert a scratch and sniff sticker here, really!!!  It is a bit pricey, but if you are looking for a great hand lotion to keep your hands soft and young-looking then look no further – this is it!

For body:

I also discovered my new favorite body lotion last year, Epicuren Lemongrass After Bath Moisturizer.  Until then I had always bought lotions, used a third to a half of the bottle and gotten sick of it.  This was recommended to me after I had laser hair removal on my legs.  I’m telling you, this is the first time in my life that I remember using an entire bottle of lotion (and I bought the BIG bottle)  Can’t rave about it enough!

 For face:

People are always telling me that I don’t look my age (keep those comments coming, people!).  While I know genes account for some of it, I also believe in my skincare regimen.  I use La Prairie Anti-Aging Day and Night Creams.  The day cream has SPF 30.  Both smell nice and are not too overpowering fragrance-wise.  I swear by these products.  Add a little vitamin C-based serum underneath during the winter months for extra moisture.

For lips:

I find lipstick and lip pencils very drying this time of year. I found a perfect solution to keep a little color on my lips while keeping them from getting all dry and cracked – Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms (my favorite shade is Red Dahlia).

Those are my favorite products to beat dry skin.  What are your favorites?  Tell me about them at the bottom of this post.
