Winter, winter....Cold Winter. As I come from a very humid and warm country, European dry winter kills me...literally. At least my skin and hair. But with the years, I learnt to deal with it with beauty products. I tried so many but this winter I am really happy with my choice. Here my top 5 Winter Mommy Essentials:
1. M.A.C. Face & Body.
When My skin gets super dry, the only foundation that doesn't make me look like a zombie is Face & Body. Actually it is super soft. It doesn't cover too much but it makes your complexion more even and look prettier and the finish is matte and natural. Before I apply it (if my skin is as dry as an elephant) is their Fix Studio and Prep + Prime Moisturizer Infusion.
2. Kiehl's Centella Recovery Skin-Salve
Once a week I apply a thick layer of this salve. The cream Centella Recovery Skin Salve from Kiehl's is an effective moisturizing care with a healing effect for dehydrated, sensitive and irritated skin. The formula contains Centella asiatica, aloe vera and honey and these soothes my skin and moisturize it.
3. MAYE Berlin 100% Argan Oil
For a long time I thought Argan oil was just good for my hair. After trying it as a skin moisturizer for 2 weeks,, I noticed the huge impact it had on my skin. No more big dry red patches. I have to accept I was a bit skeptic to put oil in my face (i hate outbreaks) but It worked perfectly and my skin looks refreshed. But then again not all Argan oils are the same. I can Totally recommend the once from MAYE Berlin. After washing my face with a mild face soap, I apply this oil all over my face and let it absorb. Pass your hands throught your face again and apply your makeup as always
4. M.A.C. Tendertalk Lip Balm
Lips. my "Winterlips" are terrible and I need to exfoliate them every 2 weeks (use some sugar and oil and rub them with your finger and take the excess with a tissue paper) But in order to keep them looking great and use some trendy matte lipsticks I use Tendertalk Lip Balm from MAC. It is an intelligent lip care which creates a personalized color depending on the PH of your body. And it smells like vanilla!!!
The winter brise can actually cause breakage. So the best thing I have tried on my hair is Olaplex. It is a salon treatment that you continue at home with Olaplex N•3. You can get a professional olaplex treatment at my favorite Salon Marc Bennmann and continue at home with number 3. You wont regrets it. best thing I have ever tried!
