Beat Winter Skin Blahs

Winter is fast approaching which means that our daily skin care routine should change a little. With harsher elements such as cold air, frost, and even indoor heating, our hair and skin can take a beating when winter is in full swing.

Switching over to body lotions that are richer in moisturizers such as shea butter can help combat these elements by providing a barrier between your skin and the elements that can damage it. That is why I love Olay Quench. It absorbs fast, but it hydrates so effectively, even if your elbows look like elephant skin.

Now some hijabis (ahem me) are notorious for not taking care of their hair. But in the winter, I try to pay special attention to it because the cold air plus dry indoor heating seems to suck the shine right out. Using a hair mask helps bring that shine back. This one by Frederic Fekkai is especially nourishing and also feels super luxurious. This hair mask turns my straw like ends in to silky bouncy hair.

Finally, there is an old saying that you can tell a woman’s age by her hands. Well if that is the case, keep them guessing by using a hand cream. This L’Occitane hand cream makes my hands so soft! They sell two sizes so if you are not sold on hand creams yet, try the mini version and let me know what you think.

I hope that this post helps you survive the roughest of winters all while looking great.
