Winterize Your Beauty Routine

Winter is coming…and we’re hearing there’s a bad winter ahead of us, so it might be a good idea to prepare your skin for the frigid cold.  We rush to get the warmest coats, scarves, gloves, earmuffs, but what about your beauty routine. You can’t be wearing the same type of makeup or moisturizers that you used in the summer.  We have some great tips on how to winter-proof your beauty routine that will help you feel and look your best.

WINTER MAKEUPDuring the winter we have to be extra careful with out skin because the cold weather can cause a number of problems. Here are some great tips to handle the most common issues that come with the frigid temperatures:

Smudged makeup: When it gets really cold, the wind can dry up your eyes and cause them to water or even cause your eyelashes to freeze. Make sure you use waterproof mascara just in case your eyes start to tear up. Use translucent pressed powder to keep your makeup from smudging or getting on your winter coat.

Reddish skin: If you live in areas with below-zero winters you are familiar with the dreaded windburn, which really hurts! It may leave you with reddish parched skin and in some cases frostbite. The best thing that you can do during high-wind conditions is moisturize heavily and cover as much of your face and limbs as possible. If you suffer from windburn, which leaves your skin looking inflamed and reddish, apply moisturizer with calming ingredients and apply color-correcting concealer to hide the damage.
