Best Moisturizers, Lotions, and Facial Masks for Winter

   I love the winter time except for one thing what it does to me skin. It definitely can be drying to the skin, and I don’t have dry skin normally. These are the best moisturizers that I love using for winter. Some of these I’ve mentioned in past beauty reviews but I added some new ones. These all work wonderfully for you if you have very dry skin during this cold season.

   MASKS:

Blue Glamglow Thirstymud hydrating treatment: This stuff is amazing, especially if you have very dry skin. You just place a good layer amount, let it soak in for about 5 to 10 minutes and then either rince or rub the excess product in which is what I do.

Glamglow Flasmud brightening treatment:  If you skin tends to be extremely dull or dry this time of the year, definitely try this brightening mask on. It has a scrub in it to get rid of the yucky dead skin while brightening your complexion one warning thought, after you remove the scrub, you must wear a sunscreen, even its cold out because it will protect your skin from pollutants and any chemical looking burns. I’ve never had any trouble with this priduct.

   Facial Moisturizers:

Well my favorite face moisturizer is obviously the Soap & Glory Moisturizer with the Beauty and Sleep Accelerator. I’ve talked about how amazing this product is and it’s perfect for winter, especially if you’re traveling.

MAC Complete Comfort Cream: I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this cream in the past but it’s a perfect cream for winter. I use it a lot this time of the year and I recommend it. MAC also has a Studio Moisture Cream that is good but the comfort cream is better. 

Eye Creams:

The best hydrating eye cream that I’ve tried and have used for awhile is the Rose Hydrating gel eye cream by FRESH!

Another great eye cream that is moisturizing and gets rid of puffy eyes is the Soap & Glory Puffy Attack-Turbo-boost hydragel.

   Body Lotion:

I normally stick to my my HEMP lotion, which is amazing but when my legs are extremely dry and the HEMP isn’t working the best, I grab my huge jar of the Soap & Glory, Moisture Extreme, body moisturizer. This stuff is the best and helps the dead skin become softer on the bottom of your feet. 

   Hope these moisturizers, tips and tricks work for you! Leave a comment below if you’ve tried any of these products, are using them, or just have a question.

November Tips and Tricks

It’s been awhile since I posted a “Tips and Tricks” article so here’s some new things to try out for this month.

1. If your cuticles are constantly dry, especially since the weather is getting cooler, or if you have a tendency to get hangnails and you can’t go get a manicure as often as you want, a pair of cotton gloves and cuticle oil will help you out. You can get a pair at the drug store and apply some cuticle oil to your nails and around them and up your fingers. (I use citrus scented with real flowers inside.) When you’re finished, put on your gloves and let the oil soak into your nails and skin for atleast an hour. Your skin and cuticles will feel so much better after.

2. If you get headaches a lot or have a massive migraine but don’t want to take a lot of medicine, apply a tiny bit of peppermint oil to your temples and a drop on your forehead. Massage oil gently into your skin. In a couple of minutes, the oil and it’s aromatic healing properties will help that head pain disappear. 

3. Here’s another essential oil tip. I love using essential oils for both their magical and healing properties. If you’re feeling stressed or anxious, take a few drops of lavender oil and apply a drop to both of their wrists. Also place a drop on your chest. Massage in. Lavender provides, peace and calmness . Just breathe in the delicious fragrance and it will help calm you down.

4. If you want to wear highlighter but don’t want to spend money on a highlighter pan because you don’t know if you’ll like it or just don’t want to spend extra cash on one, using eyeshadow that is a shimmer will give your face and specifically your cheek bones a lovely glow. Some good shadows that I like to play around with include Sugarpill’s “Wink” and Storybook Cosmetics Wizard and Wizardry, “Jinx” and “Bewitched.” Pressed shimmer shadows work best. If you want a more intense highlight, a pressed glitter shadow will let you achieve that look.

5. This is probably the most important and helpful tip and trick on here!

If you find yourself really hot and sweating a lot, pouring a little ice cold water on your wrist will cool down the blood and stop your sweating and hot flashes. An ice cube will do the same thing. This trick also works if you’re having an ANXIETY or PANIC attack. The coldness will help STOP them dead in their tracks.

Hope these tips and tricks help you out or just make your life a little easier.

Sending love to you all. 💝🍒
