Fight the Winter Beauty Blues

See also

Winter has finally arrived and although it may not feel like winter here in Virginia, that does not mean you should take your skin for granted! Start by preparing for the freezing temperatures ahead by protecting your body and hair now. Here are 4 ways to fight the winter beauty blues.

1. Exfoliate your skin

Get rid of that dead skin! The last thing you want to deal with is dry, itchy skin. The best way to remove that dullness and bring back your glow for the winter is by exfoliating. Clinique's Sparkle Skin is a tub full of blue heaven. This body scrub will have your skin feeling silky smooth and hydrated as it gently removes dead skin.

2. Use lotion with SPF

Even though there are more cloudy days than sunny ones, do not forget your SPF. This needs to be at the top of everyones list this winter. Protecting your skin from the sun is a 24/7 ALL YEAR ordeal. Trust me you will be glad you did 20 years from now!

3. Whiten your teeth

A whiter smile will have you wanting to smile more, which will make you happy as well as those around you. Get pearly whites with Crest 3D White Strips Advanced Vivid. It only takes an hour a day and is super easy and not messy. A whiter smile makes all the difference to your overall appearance. Plus smiles are contagious!

4. Keep the Volume

Winter weather calls for cute beanies and matching mittens. It can get pretty frustrating spending so much time on your hair, just to cover it up and flatten your 'do'. Add some volume to it with ULTA's Styling Volume and Texture Powder. It is the perfect travel size to keep in your bag and works miracles on flat hair. Just dust some onto the root of your hair, run your fingers through your hair to disperse the powder, shake your hair around a little bit and voila! Plump no-hat hair.
