Best Winter Beauty Tips For Women
You’re going to LOVE these simple winter beauty tips and tricks to get you through the winter months. Some of them may seem obvious, but number three will surprise you…
- Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize—Although it may seem counter-intuitive, winter is actually the most important time of year to ensure your skin is getting enough hydration, AKA moisturizer. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air that pulls moisture out of the skin. I suggest spending some extra time massaging your moisturizer into your skin to boost it’s natural glow, and don’t be afraid to use a TON! Apply moisturizer throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated and refreshed. If you’ve already applied your makeup, use a light spritz of water to hydrate during the day, or invest in a facial mist.
- Keep lips hydrated—Another one of my winter beauty tips is to keep your lips hydrated. Lack of humidity during the winter months can cause cracked, dry, uncomfortable lips. A consistent schedule of hydration is your best friend if you want to achieve a soft and supple pout in the dead of winter. If your lips tend to become extremely dry during the winter, switching up to winter makeup can also help. Dark winter lip colors like oxblood, burgundy, and deep violets can mask your dryness, giving your lips the boost you’ve been searching for!

- Switch to winter makeup—Just as your clothes change in the winter, so should your winter makeup! Winter beauty is a thing, so save your summer favs for next year. Now, I’m certainly not saying you need to go and buy all new winter makeup, but comb through your beauty products and set aside anything with darker tones. Darker lipsticks, eyeshadows, and maybe even a smokey eye will show that you’re embracing winter to the fullest! This winter beauty tip is one that seems to get overlooked, especially if you’re not one to change up your makeup routine.
- Replenish your skin & body from the inside—Winter beauty and winter makeup isn’t just on the outside. In fact, it all starts from within. I’m going to leave you at a cliff hanger for this one, just because suspense can sometimes be fun. Keep reading to discover my top three beauty products you need this winter…
