When the cold winds of winter blow, you need a roster of bodycare ammunition to help you beat back dry skin and hair.
The industry’s top beauty brands are creating antioxidant-rich formulas to help fight against nature’s harshest and coldest climates – to help seal in moisture, stop that pesky cold-weather itch and turn back the hands of time.
Intriguing ingredients such as murumuru, kokum butter and boise oil give the skin lush, supple results.
Here, a roundup of some of the top products to help you say hello to a softer more supple you. You’re welcome.
Are you tired of your growing cemetery of products piling up in your bathroom cabinet? Here’s a 99% organic balm that triples as an exfoliating cleanser, a balancing mask or deeply nourishing protective balm thanks to protective rejuvenating geranium, starflower, rosemary, hemp and its main miracle-working ingredient, rosehip oil. Now that’s a beautifier that goes a mile.
