Snow, Christmas, Hot Chocolate and Warm Blankets. All of these things are wonderful parts of winter. However, it can bring dryness, tightness, and discomfort to the face and body.
These are a few of my absolute favorite skin and body care products that are all natural, green and vegan. Not only are these going to be gentle and nourishing for the skin and body, but they are not going to have any synthetic chemicals or toxins!
My Winter skincare routine is all about adding hydration to the face, and not stripping it of any of its natural oils. My skin can be rather sensitive, so I love using these natural products as I know they won’t irritate my skin with harsh chemicals. Having a moisturized base is essential to making makeup apply smoother and look nicer on the skin. My favorites for pumping some hydration into the skin are the Pouring Out Facial Oil for a more lightweight but still effective moisturizer, and the TrueFormulation Honey + Rose Silk Cream. When my skin is looking very dry and dull, I will even use them in conjunction with each other! Feel free to check out my full post on facial oils for more info on them!
Throughout the day,, to refresh my makeup I will spritz a bit of the Isolde Skincare Calming Mist to hydrate and soothe dry of chapped skin from the cold and windy weather. Isolde as a brand is 100% plant-based, and their Calming Mist and contains no alcohol, which is an ingredient you will often find in conventional facial mists.

If you want a lightweight, but still hydrating body moisturizer, the Body Oil in Impulsive from Frank and Batten is one of my absolute favorites!
The cold frosty air can dry out your tresses, so keeping them hydrated and smooth is a must. I love the Rahua Omega 9 hair mask for adding nutrients and oils back into my hair and for protecting it from the harsh weather during winter! It is the absolute best hair mask I have ever used, and it has been saving my hair!
