As much as I love the winter, my skin does not. After a day outdoors (which is everyday!) my face feels dry, chapped, and unfortunately... old. Since the care of my skin is a great and time consuming hobby of mine, I tirelessly search out the perfect, preventative winter product; something that I can slather over my face before I head outdoors to protect my sensitive skin from the harsh effects of winter weather. Since I have tried nearly everything under the sun - I do have a few favorites that I can recommend.
My favorite this year is Weleda - Everon Cold Cream (aka face balm). Made from all natural, organic ingredients, this balm truly protects my skin when I am frolicking in the snow. Soothing a semi-thick layer over my face before I go outside keeps my skin moist and hydrated, free of the effect of the chaffing wind and cold. This product keeps my skin healthy and doesn't clog my pores! At $16.00 a pop, is a real steal.
I also like Darphin's Renewing Balm. Also made from natural ingredients, this product works just like the Weleda but at more than triple the price.
Wrap up, snuggle up and keep your face protected and skin hydrated as you explore the fun of winter living the most beautiful you.
