Spring is here, which means we’re showing a little more skin.
Dresses, cropped pants, and sleeveless tops = time for a quick skin fix. After spending several months wrapped head to toe in sweaters and thermal leggings, it’s time to break out some floral and color.
We all know that a long winter causes dry, cracked skin – the freezing temps and gusty days take a toll on our skin no matter how many times we moisturize. After months of dryness, it’s time to rejuvenate your skin before outdoor wedding season and rooftop rose parties.
Here is a round-up of some of our favorite products to repair your winter skin.
Honey Touch Body Cream – $29
We love the way RITUALS is inspired by the wisdom and traditions of ancient Asian cultures. Like our weekly ritual yoga class, it gives us a moment to focus on our beauty inside while tending to our physical beauty as well. For a spiritual focus to healing that winter skin and getting you mind and body ready to shed those layers, we recommend the Honey Touch body cream by Rituals with Indian Rose & Himalya Honey. If your skin tends to be sensitive to scents, we recommend applying a small amount of product to a small area before applying to your body – these products can be strong.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment – $12.79
This is like Vaseline on steroids, and it’s awesome! This is a very greasy product, probably best for that intense skin therapy session you were planning for a Sunday at home – but works wonders! Hint – works especially well to rejuvenate your cuticles and your lips too!
If it’s worthy of the Soul Cycle bathroom, enough said! Enhance your standard Creme de Corpe regimen to repair that winter skin with the Creme de Corpe whipped body butter (lightly scented) and spot treat with the Intense Treatment enriched with Avocado Oil and Shea Butter.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream – Around $9.89
Cetaphil is a brand dermatologists have been recommending for years, especially for those who have an allergic reactions or break out from just being in the same room as body moisturizer. It might not be glamorous, but it definitely does the trick.
Deep Comfort™ Body Butter – $30.50
Winter does a nice little number on our joints – we recommend using the Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter for a little extra attention to those dry elbows, knees and heels. And for those of us always on the hunt for a good fragrance-free option, this is it.
Feeling good on the outside, means feeling good on the inside….how’s that for some philosophy? The whipped body cream from the Philosophy living grace line is made with shea butter, aloe, olive fruit extract and antioxidants. The philosophy behind this line, “philosophy: with every act of grace, the world seems even more vibrant” – we can agree with that!
Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil – $3.99
For those of us looking for a no frills, at home resolution to dry winter skin – we know coconut oil is on the top of the list! We recommend Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil packets so you can take them on the go, not to mention it’s a total price performer! NEVER get caught with dry skin again! Bonus, put a few of these packets in the shower for some intense hair therapy.
