The sun is finally shining and the snow is melting into disgusting piles of dirt mixed with trash–it can only mean one thing. Spring really
might, possibly be is coming. Still, winter wreaks havoc on our faces and that means it’s time for some rehab.
Sometimes though, the richest, thickest moisturizers heaped upon us especially in the darkest, pre-daylight-savings months can feel a little too, well rich.
If like me, washing your face is hardly the problem (I’m way above the recommended doses on that one), then the idea of mimicking the feeling when moisturizing is an appealing one to say the least. These moisturizers do just that. With powerful hydrating agents like hyaluronic acid, this batch will have your skin ready for all the Vitamin D it’ll soon be on the receiving end of in no time.

La Roche-Posay stands out amongst endless beauty products –it’s not just its “French pharmacy” status (or former status, since it’s available at fancy Duane Reades now,) we love it for its accessible price point, clean packaging, and consistent reliability.
The latest product is the double-punch Rosaliac CC Creme, which both provides cosmetic coverage for rosacea, while also working on a deeper level to correct redness over time. It’s the first over-the-counter redness-correcting CC cream and is meant to combine the lightweight texture and hydrating properties of a BB cream with the more substantial coverage of a foundation. Think coverage plus 24% reduction of visible redness within 8 weeks. Plus, it’s got SPF 30–and you should wear sunscreen every day. (Not to sound like your mom.) Get it here.
Winter is here again. That means dry skin, chapped lips, and frizzy hair is looming. What good is a great outfit if your skin is lackluster and your hair is dull? Take advantage of holiday sales on skin products, Brazilian hair treatments, and facial specials. Such as Groupon’s daily deal today: Get three skin treatments for $99! Services include microdermabrasion, glycolic peels, and enzyme treatments.
Another must is a Brazilian keratin hair treatment. If you’ve never had one before, you must try it. It’s a non-damaging hair smoothing treatment that tames frizz and unruly hair while leaving body and shine. Your hair will feel like silk afterward. The process takes about two hours, depending on your hair length, and costs about $150 to $350. Also, don’t be afraid to exfoliate and use a denser everyday moisturizer to keep flaky skin away. I like Chanel’s Microperle Gentle Polishing Gel and La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Soothing Protective Moisturizer to protect my skin from the elements. Remember, great fashion and great skin and hair go hand-in-hand!
