3 Ways To Get The Winter Off Your Skin


It’s been a harsh winter, but the temperature hit 60 degrees recently, and it looks like the worst is over (fingers crossed). As you ditch the layers, step into the sunlight rubbing your eyes, realize that, now that your mind is prepared for spring, your skin needs to catch up. Below, some ways to undo the lingering effects of winter on your skin.

Ditch the Winter Dryness

Perfective Ceuticals Divine Brightening Mask

The only thing worse than winter’s bitter cold is the dryness that your skin feels afterward. You want to replenish that moisture without feeling greasy. The Perfective Ceuticals Divine Brightening Mask is a paper mask that injects over 1,000 times its weight in moisture into the skin. It uses mostly botanical ingredients (the first three after water are aloe barbadensis leaf juice, rosa canina fruit extract, and mulberry root extract), and the mask also brightens skin tone and fights dullness and discoloration.


Silk’n Flash&Go Luxx

Soon, your legs will be out in public again—which means it’s time to get rid of that hair. If you don’t have time to head out for laser hair removal, you can try the at-home version. The Silk’n Flash&Go Luxx is an FDA-approved device that uses patented Home Pulsed Light to destroy the hair at the root.  The Luxx version comes with 120,000 pulses, ensuring a fuzz-free summer.

Make It Perfect

L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Line

L’Occitane has figured out how to unlock the power of the peony, and its Pivoine Sublime—Sublime Peony—line aims to perfect the skin through hydration, correcting uneven textures, and minimizing pores and fine lines. The collection includes a skin perfector serum, a perfecting cream for hydration in all humidity levels, a CC cream to even out irregularities, a perfecting mist for on-the-go hydration, and a tinted lip balm. The line doesn’t launch until May 2015 (just in time for Mother’s Day), so by then your skin will be fresh and ready to be perfected.
