Winter time brings snow and cold weather which means fireplaces, scarves, gloves, snowboarding, skiing, and bundling up. But it also brings on dry hair, dry skin, and chapped lips. During the winter you should not only bring out your winter clothes and shoes, you should also bring out your winter skincare and hair care. Like all of your winter essentials, these products should keep you hydrated and comfy through cold, and often drying, conditions.
Putting together your winter products list is just like creating a winter outfit!
The Hat. For the top of your head, think hair products. Often times your winter shampoo and conditioner are hiding behind the names moisture, hydrating, and repair. The KMS line of hair products has a range of shampoos and conditioners for different hair types, or in this case different seasons. For winter, try the KMS Moist Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. If you try hydrating shampoo and conditioner and still feel like the winter weather is wearing down your locks, try using the deep conditioner or the keratin-conditioning spray from the It’s-a-10 brand. Keratin is protein found naturally in your hair so using a product with extra keratin will not only strengthen each strand but could also help support the roots for healthier looking hair.
The Scarf. To cover your neck and face, let’s talk about face moisturizers and lotion. First things first, to prep your face, use a gentle facial cleanser so the lotion can really absorb into the skin properly. Then for the moisture: try a light-weight moisturizer like the Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion—not only will you get hydration in a lighter formula, but it also packs in SPF 30 so you can skip the extra step of adding a separate sunscreen. If you are looking for something more heavy-duty, try adding the Kiehl’s Super Multi Corrective Cream into your evening skin care regime(or the Kiehl's Facial Fuel Heavy Lifting Anti Aging Moisturizer for men); this thicker moisturizer will help keep your skin well-nourished overnight.
The Winter Coat. It goes without saying that your skin may get dried out by the harsh weather in the winter time so an ultra-hydrating lotion will be essential for your winter products list, but adding in a body scrub to the mix will also help buff away any unwanted top layers of skin. The Peter Thomas Roth Blemish Buffing Beads Body Wash will not only help scrub away any dry layers, it is also formulated to help nourish the skin and aid in a healthy renewal of skin cells.
Putting together your winter skincare list is just as important as bundling up for the cold. Don’t be afraid to try new products (for new benefits) or spend a few more minutes in the morning to add hydration and moisture.
