With temperatures dropping and leaves falling we know winter is around the corner. That normally means duller hair, patchy skin, scaly hands and maybe even some extra fine lines around your eyes. Start updating your beauty routine with these hydrating essentials to keep your hair and skin moisturized, refreshed and glowing the whole winter season.
Cold weather doesn’t have any mercy when it comes to wreaking havoc on your hair. The hair naturally stretches while wet and shrinks while it gets dry. If your hair becomes overly dry, it can easily break during the drying process. That’s why it helps to limit the usage of artificial heat, such as blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons since they all make our hair susceptible to splitting and breakage. The best way to dry your hair is air drying it or using a hair towel, which is a light and gentle on tresses. Bamboo towels are better for the hair than terry cloth towels. Towels made with terry cloth can cause hair breakage, split ends, tangles, and hinder shine.
Using a shampoo that is free of sulfates, such as VOLAIRE’s Weightless Volumizing Shampoo ($32), is another way to ensure healthy tresses during the cooler seasons. This unique oxygen-infused formula creates a lightweight foam-lather that lifts the hair as it cleanses, leaving hair and scalp clean with silky, soft strands. Botanical extracts like yarrow and chamomile help protect hair from environmental conditions, and aid in strengthening hair from roots to ends.
Follow up with their Weightless Fortifying Conditioner ($32) to help repair dry, damaged, winter hair with this innovative volumizing conditioner, which delivers the ultimate lightweight hydration for even the finest and thinnest hair. ProVitamin B5 infuses strands with lightweight moisture, while Omega Fatty Acids in the conditioner lift and protect. Avocado oil helps moisturize uniquely; it’s highly penetrative, designed to seal in moisture, and creates buoyant, luscious, weightless locks. Actress Kristin Davis was so taken by the VOLAIRE hair care line that she became a brand ambassador for them.
This winter, reverse summer skin damage with a gentle and lightweight cream that is designed specifically to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’m currently using the PRIORI Skin Renewal Cream. ($66). In addition to providing advanced moisturization, this skin cream also offers multi-layer skin renewal and antioxidant protection while both exfoliating and hydrating the skin.
