Feeling the winter blues? You’re not alone. With summer just a few months away, most of us are ready for beaches, beautiful weather and bronzed skin. However, harsh winter weather may have left your skin dry, itchy and dull. Put your winter blues aside because I’ve got a few ways to fix the damage that winter may have caused you.
Chapped lips: I can’t help but notice everyone complaining about their chapped lips around this time of year. Winter weather can leave your lips extremely dry and lipstick or gloss may not be helping. Try a tinted lip balm like Fresh Sugar Passion Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 30. Sugar ensures long-lasting moisture while black currant seed oils condition the lips. Tinted lip balm will give your lips some color while also treating them. The lip balm also comes in many other colors such as Plum and Honey.
Dry Skin: Dry skin is one of the most common problems during the winter months and finding something that works can be frustrating. A lotion that I have found to work well is Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. This affordable lotion contains Natural Colloidal Oatmeal which helps stop itching and cools the skin. The formula protects dry skin, leaving it soft and smoother than ever. The product is also fragrance free which is important for those with sensitive skin. If you do find yourself having extremely dry skin, avoid taking extremely hot showers and always apply lotion afterwards.
Dull complexion: If your complexion is looking a little dull, try an illuminating tinted moisturizer such as Stila illuminating tinted moisturizer SPF20. The formula melts right into your skin without giving you an oily look. This tinted moisturizer gives you a gorgeous glow even during the not-so-glamorous winter months.
Scalp Dryness: Dandruff is common during the winter and can be difficult to get rid of. For a great shampoo that helps prevent and get rid of dandruff try Garnier Fructis Anti-Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo. The purifying formula fights dandruff for a flake-free clean that lasts for 48 hours.
After trying some of these tips, you’ll be saying goodbye to winter blues and hello to warm spring days!
