Chapped lips, dry hair, cracked knuckles: welcome to winter. The season may be good for skiing, but it's definitely not good for your beauty routine. This time of year leaves you feeling dried out and full of static, not to mention pale. So knowing the right beauty tips to get you through the winter is essential to surviving the season and still feeling like your best self.
When you think of winter beauty, you might think it's quite lovely. Rosy cheeks from a walk in the wind, a porcelain complexion from avoiding the sun, and the chance to wear deep red lips and nails. This is a sweet, snow bunny look. The unfortunate thing is, it's rarely the case in real life.
Instead, you are left with skin that's dry as a desert, hair that looks like it's been rubbed by a balloon, eyes that make it seem like you haven't slept in days, and a a complexion that's akin to Casper. Winter air is dry and cold, which is a perfect (snow)storm for leaving your skin flaky and lacking moisture. You'll notice it quickly: your lips start to crack, your hands feel like sandpaper, and your hair is brittle as a bone. As if it wasn't already hard enough to feel sexy during winter (hello seven layers of bulky cable knits), now even your beauty routine is taking a hit.
But for every problem, there is a solution. These easy beauty hacks will have your skin and hair feeling more like June than January. They'll help you feel moisturized and fresh, even in the middle of a nor'easter.
