It's Cold Outside! Winter Essentials

This time of year it is very imporant to keep your skin moisturized.  Cold weather really dries your skin and can cause breakage that just doesn't look good.  We've put together a list of some Winter Must-Haves to get you through this dry, cold time in your lives. 


In cold weather, lips have a tendency to dry and "crack".  It is imporant to keep lips hydrated with lip balms or you can also use a lip shimmer or gloss to add some sparkle. Our Favorites: Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm  How it Works Give your lips the soothing feeling they deserve. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. We've even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle. How to Use It Apply balm liberally to your lips as often as needed, particularly in dry, cold or windy conditions. Featured Ingredient Beeswax — A natural wax made by bees in the cell walls of honeycombs, this substance is a natural emulsifier used in cosmetics.
