Hey Stags!

One of the worst parts of winter is, without a doubt, the havoc it can wreak upon your skin.  Dryness and redness seldom look cute on anyone, and can break down a perfect makeup look very quickly. However, there are some products you can use to help combat the dreaded “winter skin.” Here are some of my favorites:

Aquaphor is available at any drugstore, and is the best treatment for chapped lips. Even your most drying matte lipstick will go on beautifully when glided on top of lips moisturized with Aquaphor. It also makes the perfect glossy lip balm.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is without a doubt the best thing you can buy to hydrate your skin. Since it’s fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, you can use it on your face and body without worrying that it will cause acne or any weird skin reaction. It absorbs quickly, and is perfect for keeping in your backpack or tote to ward off scaly, dry hands.

If you’re anything like me, a good foundation is what takes you from tired and blotchy to beautiful and fresh with just a quick application. Yet even the best foundation can’t always hold up to the elements. This is where one Holy Grail product comes in: Urban Decay Setting Spray. At $30, it is not cheap, but a little goes a long way. A few spritzes after your makeup application, and your face will stay intact until you actually want to take it off before bedtime. In three different variations, you can find one that works for you, no matter what your skin type.

Stay warm, and fingers crossed for another snow day!
