When the temperature dips and the weather gets nasty, your skin can pay a heavy price. Dry, chapped skin is often on the menu during blustery winter days, and few products seem to help. Luckily, Westchester boasts its own bounty of winter-ready beauty products perfect for giving your skin some much-needed nourishment during these dark days. Follow along as we round up three locally sourced products ideal for winter rehabilitation.
Pound Ridge residents Ayo and Nigel Hart produce this soothing cream in a pleasing Norwalk Lavender scent. This natural lotion produced by Dolphin Organics features soothing, certified organic aloe leaf juice and is devoid of parabens and sulfates.
When South Salem resident Indie Lee created her own line of organic skincare products for her expectant sister, she had no idea that the products would be such a hit. Indie Lee’s Vanilla Citrus Moisturizing Oil contains jojoba oil, essences of orange, and apricot oil to moisturize and soothe chapped skin. Her beloved Hydrating Body Balm doesn’t hurt either.
This moisturizer formulated for the entire face and body was produced by model and former makeup artist Cindy Joseph of Yonkers. A part of her Boom By Cindy Joseph line, this product contains honey and bee pollen to naturally stimulate collagen production, allowing the skin to retain moisture and for the cream to be preserved naturally. Eschewing harmful chemicals and dangerous additives, this moisturizer gives anyone leg up on the long winter.
