Escape Winter’s Wrath
Seasonal changes can throw our skin for a loop, so we’ve gathered some great complexion essentials that will keep you from feeling the ravaging effects of winter. 1. Shiseido Essential Energy moisturizing cream and moisturizing gel cream ($48 each), Nordstrom at Fashion Show. Cold, winter air can be harsh on the skin, particularly if you already have dry or even normal skin. Try a richer cream for dry or normal skin, or a gel cream for occasionally oily skin to keep hydrated and seal in moisture; 2. Herbivore Lapis facial oil ($72), Sephora at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort. Some people experience oily or combination skin in the winter, which can be caused by the skin overproducing oil to compensate for dryness and even overly hot showers. Do not be scared of an oil, particularly this one, which balances skin and reduces redness. That is a winter win; 3. Fresh Sugar lip polish ($24), Sephora at The Forum Shops at Caesars. Peeling, dry lips are a persistent issue in the winter, and your favorite lip balm alone may not be doing the trick. Try this lip scrub to lightly exfoliate the dry skin and help your other products be more efficient.
