A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

Current Winter Rotation

on January 30, 2016

Hello again!

Winter is a beautiful time of year – cold, crisp air and fresh snow can be so invigorating… unless it is the 30th snow of the year. I love being able to throw on a few layers and build a fire. However, I despise the feeling of dry skin and static-fueled hair. Ah, winter glamour.

So I wanted to share some of my current winter saviors – its been a couple years since I’ve done this and have added a couple different elements. I am always looking for the best way to battle the winter and feel like I have a pretty good routine this year!

Julep Hydrating Body Cleanser ($38/10oz)

The amazing folks at Julep developed this as part of their Korean skincare line and as a compliment to the top selling cleansing face oil. Created with grape seed oil, coconut oil, kukui nut oil and grapefruit peel oil, this is a fantastic deep cleanser that offers immediate hydration. I pair it with the Julep konjac charcoal body sponge to help exfoliate away dry skin to help the oils get to work.

Aveda Massage Formula (8.7oz)

I scoured the Aveda website for more info or cost for this, but no luck… I received this as a gift through their rewards program this year – customized with the Aveda Chakra 7 scent. It is a fabulous lightweight almond and jojoba oil blend that I use all over a couple days a week after showering. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave marks on clothes. This is the first time I have ever used body oil and definitely realize what I’ve been missing!

Julep Elixir (1oz)

This is just pure organic Moroccan argan oil – no specific reason for this particular product. The key is that it is a pure and unscented oil. I have 2 very dry spots on my face after a weird breakout and this has been calming and healing these spots incredibly well. I use this every night before bed and apply any extra oil from the dropper on my dry cuticles.

Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve ($22/5oz)

If you have read my blog for a while, you know I go through a tube of this pretty regularly. This is just the best hand cream – incredibly hydrating without leaving my hands a greasy mess. It is chock full of avocado and sesame oil with a light eucalyptus scent. A small amount really goes a long way!

What are some of your current winter favorites?
