Happy humpday friends! I love this time of year. Not as much as I love fall, but I love the newness and the excitement for things to come. What I don't love though is the dryness that comes with this cold winter air. One of my most read posts is my top 5 moisturizers for dry, sensitive skin, so I thought I'd do an updated post and include hair too! I have dry, sensitive skin normally, so winter is really tough on my hair and skin. BUT, I've found 5 things that help me keep my "summer glow" well into the winter time and I thought I'd share them with you today in case you share the same problem.
Of all the things you can do to help your skin a long in the winter, exfoliating is the best. I use this twice a week or so and I absolutely love it. It dissolves as you scrub so you never over do it, which is big for my sensitive skin. It just leaves your skin feeling so fresh and clean and my moisturizer soaks in so much better after I exfoliate.
I know this brand is made for dandruff, but because of that it is so moisturizing and soothing for my scalp. I first tried it when my scalp got sunburnt at the beach, but I've used it ever since then because it is moisturizing without making my hair greasy. Plus, it smells amazing. Win-win.
I have blogged about this before, but it's okay because it's my all time favorite. I tried other cheaper options, but nothing can beat this. The yellow color slightly evens out the redness in my skin tone and the texture is SO smooth. I swear, there's nothing like it. Plus, the pump makes it more hygienic too, which I love.
I got this in a holiday kit last year and have loved it ever since. It's slightly exfoliating, but very hydrating. It calms my skin when I have breakouts and just tones down the craziness that can sometimes happen when I'm busy and stressed and not taking very good care of my skin. First Aid Beauty as a brand in general is great, but this is a stand out product of theirs for me.
For a person who has naturally oily hair, I could never have imagined that I'd be putting oil in it. MY scalp is pretty well managed with the H&S shampoo, but the ends are dry and split this time of year. I'll admit that I was totally drawn in by the coconut, which is my absolute favorite, but it lived up to the hype. It's incredibly light weight and just adds a bit of sheen to the ends of my hair without weighing down the rest of my hair. 10/10 recommend. I spray it on my ends, brush it through, and then blow dry.
What are your favorite winter time products? Any recommendations?
