How To Save Your Skin In the Cold

It’s that time of year again; the trees are barren, the weather is frigid, and Starbucks has revealed their new holiday cup designs. For me, this time of year is brutal on my skin. From finals to the cold weather, my skin can use a little TLC.


Your skin is inevitably going to get dry at some point this winter. In order to help expel blackheads and dry skin, I recommend using a gentle peel. I have become hooked on Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel. It is incredibly gentle but leaves your skin luminous and ready to absorb other products.

It’s time to do damage control and save your skin. Start loading up on moisturizer now because one day you will go to bed totally fine and the next day you will wake up with peeling, scaly skin. There is nothing cute about that, trust me. I know I’ve said this before, but I highly recommend Peter Thomas Roth’s squalene oil. I promise, I am not an endorser for the brand, I just swear by this product. It gives my skin the hydration it needs without clogging my pores which is truly a miracle.

In the winter, my hands become incredibly dry and cracked. I love Bath and Body Works various creams because not only do they have shea butter, but they also smell divine.
