Keeping Your Skin Hydrated During Cold Months

If your skin is anything like mine then it can become really dry during the cool/colder months. So I compiled a short list of my favorite moisturizers that will keep you hydrated for when Old Man Winter comes.

1. Aveda Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Creme      $40.00
This is one of my favorites. It has Tourmaline- a naturally energizing mineral—mixed with marine and plant extracts and 11 powerful anti-oxidants. It's pricey (for some) but I only use it in the winter. You don't need much of it to get the job done.

2. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream                                 $10.99
Not only can you use this on you face, but you can moisturize your whole body with it as we. A little goes a long way. Great for eczema and psoriasis too.

3. Boots Expert Sensitive Hydrating Moisturizer       $4.99
This moisturizer is not only good for dry skin, but sensitive skin as well. It contains aloe vera and mineral water which is specially formulated to soothe as it hydrates. Fragrance-free.

4. Hope In A Jar SPF 25                                               $15.00 (travel size)
This moisturizer is made by Philosophy. Not only does it moisturize it protects you from UVA and UVB sun rays. Remember we must protect our skin from the sun during the winter months as well!

Moisturizing Pumpkin Facial Mask

Since the end of September I have seen pumpkins all around me because I frequent the grocery store so much. I got to thinking Hmm, I wonder if pumpkins would make a good facial mask somehow? I did some research (aka googling) and found out that pumpkins are actually good for the skin.
