6 Beauty Products You Need To Shake Off Winter!

It’s been a truly horrible winter for so many people this year that spring hasn’t come quickly enough. Nothing like a few blizzards, super-dry air at home and in the office, and mounds of icy slush to wreak havoc on your mood—to say nothing of your complexion and your hair.

So let’s spring-clean the beauty cupboard with these goodies. You’ll look and feel better in no time at all, with smoother skin and just the right hint of color to match the flowers that are finally managing to poke themselves up into the light.

1. Elemental Herbology
Tree Of Life Balm



This fantastic balm works wherever you need it. It’s loaded with buriti “Tree of Life” oil, argan oil, macadamia oil, shea butter, and rosa canina fruit so you can apply it to dry or chapped skin anywhere on your body and be instantly soothed and hydrated. It’s also great for stretch marks. It melts right into your skin, and a little goes a very long way.

By far one of the best cleansers/makeup removers I’ve ever used is this one from Tata Harper. It smells incredible, is chockfull of rosehip seed oil, argan oil, sacha inchi oil (a great source of omega-3 antioxidants). It gentle cleanses while leaving your skin soft and supple. Ideal for all skin types, especially dry ones like mine.

5. Clarins Instant Light Lip
Comfort Oil And Lip Balm Protector

And Garden Escape Color Collection



Where to start with how much I love this selection of delights that will breathe a whiff of fresh springtime air into your makeup bag. A fantastic new product is their Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, which is a unique hybrid of a balm with a gloss—it’s totally non-sticky. Choose Honey or Raspberry. If you want only a hint of sheer shine, go for the Instant Light Lip Balm Protector, in 6 colors. And then you can complement your yummy lips with the limited edition Garden Escape 6-Color Eye Palette that can be used wet or dry, and hopefully you’ll feel like spring is really here.

Remember, your skin has taken a beating from wintertime cold and dryness, so you need to always think hydration. Keep small sizes of these balms and oils near your bed, in your purse, and at your desk so you don’t forget to use them.
