Harsh Winter Months Don’t Have To Mean Dry Skin!



This weekend was a whole lotta fun and was comprised of a lot of family time-my favorite way to spend a weekend! My husband AND I (shown above) took both of our boys to the Georgia football game and luckily the dawgs pulled through and won! AND both of the boys did great (no temper tantrums!) and had an absolute blast. Notice photo above that shows how good J & W did at sitting sorta still in our seats.

So, lately with the changing of the seasons (we’re finally starting to get some slightly cool weather here in the south!) my skin is already showing signs of drying out and I don’t like it one bit! So I’ve been searching for some products to reverse the drying effects of the elements.

Here are some ways you can keep your skin supple during the upcoming winter months:


1. Your Body.

  • This is where I’m truly noticing the dryness happen! So take it from the skin gurus of Sonya Dakar, and avoid ultra hot showers and apply Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Apricot Baby Oil ($8) to your damp skin (right out of the shower) before applying your body lotion. If it’s gentle and smells good enough for babies- it should be good enough for you right??

  • I’ve just recently bought this body wash, Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash with nutrium moisture ($5), and I love it. From the fresh smell to the fact that my skin does truly feel a bit more moisturized after I jump out of the shower. Studies of this body wash have shown that it apparently improves skins moisture within a few weeks of use- we will see (I’ve had it for 5 days)!!

2. Your Face.

  • For your delicate eyebeds, try out Philosophy’s Eye Hope ($48). This eye cream contains a newly talked about ingredient called alpha glucosyl hesperidin-whew!- and “hopes” to treat dark circles, crows feet, AND puffiness, while being ultra creamy and hydrating ALL at the same time.

Don’t let old man winter get you down…fight back with some products ladies!!
