We’re in the middle of fall. The days are getting shorter, and the temperature seems to have dropped quickly in the last week.
I’ve rounded up my favourite beauty products and accessories that I use to protect my hair and skin during the winter season.
Dry winter skin is a recurring theme. As we go back and forth between the harsh cold air and heated indoors, our skin takes a toll. Now that the weather has changed, it’s time change your beauty routine.
At the end of the day, hydrate your skin at night with a thick moisturizer. Nivea’s moisturizing night care skin cream won’t break the bank and will ensure your skin stays soft while you get your beauty rest.
Your hair also can’t escape the consequences of the changing temperature. It’s likely undergoing more damage with an increased use of heating tools, as you style it for holiday parties and social outings.
Tame and protect your mane with a weekly moisturizing hair mask. Briogeo’s Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask nourishes your scalp and relieves it of any dryness or itchiness you may experience throughout the winter season.
Unfortunately, all the beauty products in the world aren’t always enough to keep your skin and tresses soft and healthy. We need something more to protect ourselves.
Scarves are a fashionable winter staple, with plenty of styles to choose from. The warmest option—the blanket scarf—is made of wool and piles high enough to shield part of your face from the blistery winter winds. Drape it around your shoulders or create a triangular wrap.
A silk printed scarf, is not only a chic accessory to your outdoor ensemble, it provides an added layer of protection for skin and hair. Designer brands accessories, such as this Emanual Ungaro silk scarf, tuck snugly into a peacoat for a nice pop of colour or can be pulled up under a hood to keep flyaways at bay.
