With cold weather, windy days, and indoor heating right around the corner, it’s time to make some adjustments to your beauty kit. Before you go on a shopping spree, find out which fall and winter skin care product is most important for the season.
Sure, you can go the multi-product route to treat dryness, and that works well some of the time. But there is one skin care product that has several uses and can stave off winter skin doldrums.
Skin balm is a versatile beauty product that goes way beyond treating dry skin. Yes, its rich emollient texture helps to soften skin and hold in moisture, making it the perfect addition to any fall and winter beauty routine. But balms also add sheen to sapped skin, soften lines and wrinkles, relieve redness and irritated skin conditions, and more.
Best Skin Balms and Ways to Use for Fall and Winter Skin Care
A must have for every beauty kit. This super smooth, subtly scented balm resuscitates dry or dreary skin. Of course, you can use as a standard moisturizer or spot treatment, but this baby does so much more. Use as a lip balm, apply to cheekbones and eye lids for instant glowy sheen, run a dab over hair to tame flyaways, treat dehydrated cuticles, and remove makeup. Another fun trick – mix a bit of balm with powder shadow or blush to create your own cream tints for eyes, cheeks or lips. The options are practically endless.
You already know skin balm hydrates, but did you know it can tighten and firm skin too? Red algae and natural butters support skin, minimize the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, and promote elasticity.
Good ol’ argan oil to the rescue in this warmly scented balm. Softens and soothes while diminishing redness.
This is, technically, a lip balm. But the convenient chubby stick makes it easy to swipe your balm on the go. Possibly my favorite lip balm ever, I’ve been known to use on backs of hands, cheeks…whatever the day calls for while on the run.
Ever deal with dry eyelids? Ugh! Such a tough area to treat. Use this ultra hydrating, deeply soothing balm at night and let it repair the delicate area while you sleep. You’ll be back to wearing powder shadow in no time.
We’ve been talking the benefits of fruit oils for skin here lately. This fruity balm contains pomegranate and raspberry to soothe and protect. Sea buckthorn ups the glow factor.
When using balm to treat dryness, pat onto damp skin to help hold in moisture. Couple with a facial oil or daily moisturizer for extra hydration. Enlisting the help of this important beauty product now is the best fall and winter skin care move you can make.
