Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Maybe it was the change in the weather, but I’ve had an off and on cold that has kept me from getting much done, including blogging for the past week. I finally decided that staying in bed was doing no good and decided to catch up with some friends for brunch and shopping and even made it to the flea market this weekend. Having a little fun was just what the doctor ordered and now my thoughts are about ways to stay healthy and happy as we move into winter.

BODY BUTTER

When I say I love KORRES products, it’s more like an Annie Hall moment: Love is too weak a word for what I feel — I lurve you, you know, I loave you, I loff you, two F’s.  Decadent and delicious KORRES Body Butters are packed with shea butter, quince extract, sunflower, almond and avocado oils–just trust me, they’re amazing. They come in 10 different scents and at the moment I’m trying out the Guava Body Butter (a barely there scent) and their creamy-foam Shower Gel for an extra moisturizing boost. I think this duo would also make for a great gift…at the very least for yourself.

SUNSCREEN

Because it’s easy to forget about sun protection (not to mention car keys, house cleaning, stocking the refrigerator etc) my skin cream and foundation both contain spf so that I never have to think about it. Ideally sunscreen should be reapplied before going outside, even in the winter when rays can be just as intense. I’m loving COOLA sunscreens, which contain 70%+ organic ingredients. COOLA’s Classic Face SPF 20 Cucumber Moisturizer will keep the delicate skin on your face sunburn free, while the Classic Body SPF 30 Plumeria Moisturizer will keep your body soft and protected. It’s also light and non-greasy and I like wearing it so much that I’m actually remembering to put it on.

BODY WASH

Did you know that the lower moisture content in the air during the winter literally pulls moisture away from your skin? Me neither. I never understood body wash, it seemed like just one more thing to add to the beauty to-do list, but lately I’m into earthy scented Savannah Bee Honey Body Wash and found that it’s a great way to clean and hold more moisture in your skin and much better for your skin than soap. I also learned a few cool things about honey. Not only is it a gentle cleanser that exfoliates your skin naturally, it also contains a complex protein that promotes elasticity in the skin and honeybees use Propolis to seal and protect their hive, which does the same for your body. I think you’ll love these handy little honey body washes and at $10 each, they won’t break the bank.

So tell me, how do you change your beauty routine when the weather gets colder?

Please share your winter beauty secrets!
