I don’t know about you, but when it’s 15ºF out, I don’t want to do anything or go anywhere. If I could crawl back into bed, that’d be just fine with me. My two biggest problems during winter are being perpetually cold (yes, even inside) and getting dry, dull skin. It hurts, it’s not cute, and it’s not fun. So here’s how I solve my two biggest problems during the coldest months.
Anyone else get dry, cracked hands (ew!) when the cold weather hits? It’s happened to me every winter since I was a kid. This has always been my mom’s recommended miracle worker for dry hands. There’s nothing like passed down secrets!
There’s nothing better than quality coffee at home. I got my Nespresso a couple months ago, and I’m in love! It’s a better quality brew than your Keurig, and allows you to make coffeeshop quality lattes at home to keep you warm and cozy.
I have several pairs of these socks. They’re perfect for winter: warm enough to wear with boots or shoeless around the house. When it’s cold out, this is the first pair of socks I reach for!
Clinique sent me their 72-hour moisturizer to try out, and I am loving it so far. I put it on before bed last night, and when I woke up this morning, my skin was moisturized and much less angry. My acne scars weren’t as apparent, and my forehead lines had softened. Is this anti aging or anti scarring? No, but I think that really speaks to how important moisturizing is.
A couple months ago, I asked you guys for lip repair recommendations on Stories. This coconut oil gloss is incredible. It keeps my lips so moisturized, they actually look fuller. Like with anything else, the trick is that you have to keep using it.
I am almost convinced I couldn’t make it through winter without these little guys. When they’re not on my feet, they serve as a permanent fixture beside my bed, just waiting for me. You really can’t beat sheepskin. It’ll keep you warm all winter long.
