7 Affordable Beauty Essentials You Need to Survive Cold Weather

Along with the frigid winter air comes dry skin, chapped lips and split ends. A huge part of self care includes caring for not only your mental and physical health, but caring for your body as well. Here’s a list of some essentials and necessities to get through the next few months.

1. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm

This chapstick is a natural beeswax based formula infused with vitamin E and peppermint to quench your lips’ thirst. It goes on with a thick consistency and lasts for hours, before you need to reapply. You’ll know your lips were in desperate need when they tingle slightly due to the mint oil!

2. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Hand Lotion

Your hands need some TLC throughout the winter season. They deal with the most exposure to the bitter air, making them prone to dry skin. This lotion will cure any cracks or dry patches.


3. Organix Coconut Oil

Hair tends to go unnoticed, however it is just as important as any other part of your body. The cold air takes a toll on your locks as well. Try using this penetrating miracle oil, blended with vanilla bean extract to help repair, soften and revive strands. Your hair will be silky, smooth and luscious in no time.



4. Micellar Water

The Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water is one of my favorites. Not only does it remove makeup, but it also cleanses and refreshes your face. It is gentle, making it ideal for people with sensitive skin. I love using this product in the winter since it is not harsh on my face, and it does the job without irritating skin or clogging pores.



5. Aloe or Shea Infused Socks

The perfect place to purchase these are at Bath and Body Works. These socks give some extra care by nourishing and moisturizing your feet while also keeping them warm.



6. Cocoa Butter Body Lotion

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter is a go to for me. It is thick, moisturizing, and instantly heals rough patches you notice on your body.



7. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

This stuff is a life saver. It is a berry infused overnight balm mixed with vitamin E designed to keep your lips baby soft. I use this every day of the year, but especially during the winter months. It can be used during the day as a hydrating gloss, and always apply it before bed so that your lips are fresh and plump in the morning!



Hi! My name is Mia and I am a freshman studying Nursing at the University of Rhode Island. I am from a beach town in New Jersey, and I have two dogs and a cat. I love going to the gym in the morning (even though I am definitely not a morning person until I've had my coffee), I have a slight obsession with shopping, and I think Grey's Anatomy is the best show to ever exist.
