3 Skin Care Products We MUST Have For Winter

New York Smash Magazine  

Other than freezing cold temperatures, winter can be a beautiful time of year. But honestly, it would be easier to enjoy those snowy days without the dreaded cold-weather beauty woes, like chapped lips and dry skin.

In preparation for winter, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite products that can keep your skin hydrated, glowing and gorgeous throughout the seasons: 

1. OUR FIX FOR… DRY, FLAKY LEGS

SVELTA Luxe Coffee & Raw Sugar Body Scrub

SVELTA Luxe Coffee & Raw Sugar Body Scrub

Picture this: It’s the middle of winter. Bundled up in a big puffy coat and warm clothing, most of your body hasn’t seen daylight in months. You roll up your pants, only to discover that the skin on your legs is dry and flaky with a ghastly layer of ashy, dead skin. 

If you suffer from dry legs in the wintertime, exfoliating your skin can work wonders. SVELTA’s Luxe Coffee & Raw Sugar Body Scrub is a 100 percent natural exfoliator that’s gentle yet effective, thanks to a winning combination of all-natural ingredients. Olive oil nourishes and softens, while raw sugar buffs away dead skin. Meanwhile, coffee evens and tones the skin. The result? Smooth “summer legs” all year round. Tip: After a stressful day, slather on this deliciously-scented scrub to unwind and treat yourself to an at-home spa session. Ahhhhh.

2. OUR FIX FOR… AGING, WRINKLED LIPS

BIONOVA’s Upper Lip Wrinkle Treatment

BIONOVA’s Upper Lip Wrinkle Treatment, $58 to $70 at bionovalab.com

Exposing your lips to dry, cold weather can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. To protect your pucker, BIONOVA’s Upper Lip Treatment is moisturizer designed to combat the signs of aging in your upper lip area. This chemical-free, filler-free formula has a light consistency yet it’s jam-packed with a blend of natural ingredients that help rebuild collagen and elastin while restoring the skin, including amino acids, biotin, ruin, carbohydrates and lipids.

3. OUR FIX FOR… TIRED-LOOKING EYES 

Orogold 24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum

Orogold 24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum, $148 at OrogoldCosmetics.com

The skin around our eyes is delicate and more prone to dryness, wrinkles, puffiness and fine lines. 

Applying an eye serum in combination with eye cream is a great way to lock in moisture and prevent damage. The extra layer acts as a shield against harsh winter weather. 

Infused with gold, Vitamin C and Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Orogold’s 24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum is formulated to keep eyes looking youthful by reducing wrinkles and firming the skin. The serum can be worn alone or under eye cream for maximum benefits.
