I’m not sure about you, but I am SO ready for this cold weather to be over so we can get to spring and summer! OK…so we have to wait a little longer until we can walk outside without a million layers on. And it’ll be a few more months before we can hit the beach and enjoy sunny days…but let’s talk winter beauty! Here’s what’s in my bag for my fave winter must-haves:
Did you know: even in the winter, you can STILL get sun damage?? Especially if the sun is reflecting off that bright-white snow, your skin could take the hit. Use your SPF (always!) and be sure to wear non-metal-rimmed sunglasses as metal can reflect the UV rays even more into your skin…EEK! Sunglasses also prevent you from squinting into light so much which leads to less crow’s feet wrinkles = win-win!
Shea Body Butter
Make dreaded dry winter skin a thing of the past with this luxurious body butter! If you’re already dry brushing and applying this lotion right after your shower, go the extra step and use it on your hands throughout the day. Trust me, your skin will thank you! I like to keep my bottle of body butter right next to my desk for a quick boost of moisture – and it smells absolutely amazing!
Enough said, right? Keeping hydrated inside and out will do SO much good for your body, skin, and health. If it’s tough for you to get your 8 glasses in a day, add some natural fruit flavor to your H2O or use a water-tracking app! Catching up on my water intake has been a huge 2018 resolution for my health and beauty routine! (I’m also switching most of my coffee drinks to tea to get even more H20, too!)
Lip Protection (and color!)
Whether you’re running out the door to work or heading downtown with the girls, nothing beats a sassy lip color – except one that stays on ALL day or night! If you haven’t tried LipSense yet (you should), this dream-product does. not. smudge. And if you’re looking for an even more kissable pout, Enza’s Lip Treatment is the way to go! With avocado oil and lip-friendly vitamins, you can kiss your chapstick good-bye.
OK, so this item isn’t so much in my bag as it is around my neck like, 24/7 with this cold weather – but it’s still a necessity! Let alone keeping out the frigid temps, it is JUST as important to protect the skin on your neck as it is on your face. I can’t get over how cute this light plaid pattern is (plus it goes with all my neutral outfits)!
Last but not least: my lifesaver for this season – Liquid Gold from Enza Essentials. The name says it all, but this stuff truly is a miracle in a bottle. Because it’s packed with vitamins A and E, the smooth, nourishing formula can shield skin against free radicals and, yes, winter weather stress. Plus the Liquid Gold is PERFECT for protecting the skin on your hands and keeping cuticles moisturized!
