You’re all aglow during the summer with sun-kissed skin and beach-wavy hair. You’re rocking the bikini, because you haven’t eaten carbs in six weeks. Then winter strikes. Skin starts flaking, hair frizzes and your eyes just look tired. What’s the deal? Colder weather can really take a toll, but you have the power to stay beautiful and still eat pancakes whenever you want.
Here are a few of my new winter-weather favorites that have kept me looking fresh and feeling spirited through this dreary January. Watch the video to hear about all 13 products and then share your healthy get-gorgeous secrets in the comments below. Can’t wait to hear from you all!
Cover FX Bronzer in Suntan has proven to be a great addition to my winter beauty routine. It’s perfect for contouring my face and enhancing my best assets.
NYX Brow Shaper also helps my look pop, because it keeps my brows in place all day. Eyebrows give a lot of definition to your face, so don’t overlook them!
Lorac Porefection Foundation 5 provides medium-to-full coverage. It’s infused with silky, herbal ingredients but doesn’t have all the icky parabens and junk you don’t want on your skin. I’ve seen marked improvement in my skin.
Nature’s Way EFAGold Coconut Oil helps wash it all off at the end of the day. I can’t believe I haven’t used coconut oil as a makeup remover before, but WOW! It’s great for sensitive skin, won’t burn eyes, smells like a cookie and is super hydrating ““ no dry-skin dullness, here! I even bought a bunch of 4-ounce bottles to throw in my travel bag, so I’ll never leave home without it.
Sabon Body Scrub in Lemon Mint and Shower Gel in Ginger Orange create an awakening aromatherapy in my shower. Because of its hydrating oils, I don’t even have to use a body moisturizer with this shower gel. Take that, alligator skin!
Pamela’s Bakery Gluten-Free Pancake Mix is the healthiest comfort food you could have on a cold winter day. It’s gluten-free, low in calories and made with brown rice flour for some extra whole grains.
Coco CafÃ© Coconut Water in CafÃ© Latte helps me stay energized with a refreshing mix of caffeine and electrolytes. Frigid temps make you want to just curl up in bed. Get yourself motivated to start the day by adding a little extra jolt to the mix. I pour this over coffee ice cubes for a bolder flavor (and more caffeine, of course!).
