Flaky lips? Staticky hair? Dryness everywhere? Some winter beauty issues are unavoidable, but they're also treatable. To deal with the season's snafus, consider these cold-weather solutions designed to help you look your wintry best.
Anti Racoon Eyes
Find yourself tearing up from the biting cold and strong winds? Make sure your mascara stands a chance by choosing a waterproof formula like that of Covergirl Clump Crusher by Lashblast. This stay-put mascara leaves nary a clump in sight and adds tons of volume ($7, walmart.com).
As much as you love your lip balm, it sometimes doesn't offer the softness you crave. Give your lips some extra care this winter with a lip scrub like Fresh Sugar Lip Polish. It gently buffs away flaky skin, creating an extra smooth canvas for your other lip products ($23, fresh.com).
Headed to an important event and in need of some quick complexion revival? Try a moisturizing, skin-smoothing serum like Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher. Made with ingredients like chestnut extract and antioxidants, it leaves parched skin silky soft and radiant while also reducing pore size ($52, esteelauder.com).
Dry cuticles ruining the look of your latest manicure? Get them in supple shape by massaging in Essie Apricot Oil twice day for instant hydration ($8, ulta.com).
Make the multitasking Caudalie Divine Oil your beauty splurge of the season. Blended with grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan oils, this dry oil provides luxurious softness for body, face and even fuzzy hair ends ($49, us.caudalie.com).
Staticky Hair Remedy
Winter's hats, hoods and bulky scarves often yield a wild, static-laden mess of hair. So before piling on your winter accessories, apply L’Oreal Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum. Rub a few drops between your palms and gently smooth over dry locks for quick flyaway control ($6, target.com).
Rough Skin Rescue
If your skin is dry and rough, you need this hydrating balm. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Concentrate instantly heals and revives skin from face to feet with allantonin, ceramide 3 and collidal oatmeal ($28, sephora.com).
Quick Hair Repair
If heat styling has taken its hair toll this season, Aussie’s Moist 3 Minute Miracle offers a fast deep conditioning treatment that'll undo much of the damage—no salon treatment necessary ($4, walgreens.com).
Seal in the softness after a morning shower with a replenishing lotion like this one by Weleda. Formulated with sea buckthorn and citrusy essential oils, it moisturizes the skin while impressing your senses ($17, usa.weleda.com).
