My Favourite Hydrating Products for Winter

With the cold weather rolling in, I can’t be the only one noticing a change in my skin. From my chapped lips to my dry hands, it’s time to mix up my skincare routine to stay moisturized and protect my skin from the cold, dry winter months.


For my lips
The only thing worse than dry hands is chapped lips. Aching and peeling lips are not just uncomfortable, they also make it difficult to apply  lipstick flawlessly. Vichy Replumping Lip Balm offers instant relief and prevents dryness. This natural lip balm is long lasting—I only need to reapply it a few times a day to keep my lips feeling soft and smooth. Pucker up!

For my hands
My go-to hand moisturizer is Ideal Body Hand & Nail Cream by Vichy—it’s light, soothing and smells amazing. It also helps to strengthen my nails, prevent dark spots and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The cream that does it all has officially earned a permanent spot in my purse, and we pretty much go everywhere together!


For my body
I find applying body lotion to be time consuming, and half of the time I end up with a greasy residue on my clothes. Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion is the perfect solution for me. I apply it during my shower and rinse it off right away—it’s actually that easy! Not only does it leave my skin hydrated for the day, but it’s the perfect excuse to spend a few extra seconds in the warm shower before braving the cold.

For my face
I keep my face hydrated with Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask. The combination of avocado and coconut oil is an absolute delight. I apply this mask and dream of warmer weather and pina coladas for 10 minutes (trust m, it’s not hard once you smell this mask!) and rinse it off. When I combine it with Yes to Coconut cream cleanser, I am ready to face the dry winter weather!
