This is a sponsored post and I received compensation either in products or monetarily. This does not however sway my opinions about these amazing skin care products in any way. According to the way the weather is acting in the northern areas, winter is definitely here. It may not be here according to the calendar, but it is here! While my husband is worrying about winterizing his car, I am worrying about winterizing my skin!
My skin gets so dang dry in the winter, doesn’t yours? To keep my skin looking it’s best over the next few months, here are a few of my favorite tricks.
How To Winter Proof Your Skin
Sunscreen: When I think of applying the SPF to my skin, I forget it is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer. On those bright and clear but cold days, you can still get a sunburn, so apply throughout the day. If you have been out in the sun for too long or that cold winter wind has chapped your skin, use the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment, a must have Made From Earth product. At just $14.99, this is a staple you need to winter proof your skin! For those chapped lips, I use the Blueberry Organic Lip Balm ($4.99), which will heal your lips, with a deliciously juicy blueberry flavor. For really dry and cracked lips, I use the Beeswax Butter Balm ($18.99). This product will get your lips supple and kissable in about 2 seconds flat!!
Clean and Moisturize: Because your skin is being attacked by the elements, you need to clean it gently. The last thing you need to do is put a harsh cleanser on your already raw skin. I recommend the Made From Earth Green Tea Toxin Cleanser, which retails for $18.99. With an aloe vera base and the green tea, you get a powerful one-two knockout for dry, irritated skin! For even better skin, you may want to use the Sea Kelp and Clay Correcting Mask before using the Green Tea Toxin Cleanser. Your skin will feel so pampered! At just $24.00, this little gem is rich in antioxidant properties, which will soften and detox the skin. And for that sun damaged skin or those puffy areas under your eyes, you are going to fall in love with the Cooling Cucumber Gel ($13). Just heavenly!
Hydrate: You need to hydrate yourself, both inside and out. Try and get those 8 glasses of water in every day. For the outside, you need a great moisturizer that will give your skin the deep hydration and protection it needs if you are going to winter proof your skin. With the many moisturizing products at Made From Earth, your skin will be so soft an touchable! I love the Vitamin C Moisturizer ($54.99) or the Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer ($74) from Made From Earth. Talk about adding some power to your beauty arsenal! Vitamin C adds smoothness and elasticity to your skin, which you need especially if you are an older gal like myself.
Anti-Aging and Protection: If you want to protect your skin and turn back the clocks, you need the Made From Earth Three Berry Face Serum ($32.99) This is one of my very favorite products. It rids your skin of the signs of environmental damage, giving you healthy and smooth skin. Because I can wear this under or on top of my make-up, I can wear this for protection at any time I want. To round out the anti-aging and protection theme, you want to use the Skin Correcting Facial Mist with Vitamin C ($25.00). This refreshing mist will eliminate free radical damage caused by daily sun exposure and pollutants, while fighting the visible signs of aging. Now that’s what I’m talking about!
