December is by far my most favourite month of the year. The general festive spirit and nip in the air make the days more cheerful and pleasant. Although Bombay doesn’t have a full-fledged winter season (I have my fingers crossed anyway!), I am travelling quite a bit over the next few weeks. Here are the beauty products I’m stocking up on to deal with the cold weather.
During this season, I tend to avoid foaming face washes as they leave my skin feeling tight and dry. Instead, I cleanse my face with this luxurious balm. Not only does it take off all the makeup and grime off my face, but also leaves my complexion feeling super soft and smooth. Plus, the entire act of using a cleansing balm relaxes me at the end of a long day.
This cream is my ride or die. A dime-sized amount deeply nourishes my face and acts as a barrier against any environmental factors. Unlike several heavy creams, this one sinks into my skin and plays well under makeup.
On days when the cold is too much to handle, I plan on adding a few drops of this oil into my facial cream. Argan oil is one of my favourites to use as it absorbs well and doesn’t cause me to break out. Whenever I use it, I pat the excess onto the ends of my hair and on my cuticles to give them extra nourishment.
I’m a face mask addict! Since I am going to be travelling a lot, I prefer carrying around sheet masks as they weigh practically nothing and are very convenient to use. This particular one comes drenched in a ceramide serum and works quickly to provide a burst of moisture to my skin.
Speaking of masks, I also love using them on my hair. Whilst the cold air does wonders at keeping my frizz at bay, it also tends to dry out my locks. To keep them protected, I slather on a generous amount of this creamy mask. Since it’s enriched with argan oil, it leaves my hair feeling soft, smooth and glossy.
To be honest, I haven’t tried this lip mask out before. However, after hearing a ton of good reviews about it, I’m definitely going to be picking up a jar or two. The formula promises to gently slough off dead skin and replenish any lost moisture. Since my pout is constantly chapped, this sounds incredible to me.
I’m very finicky when it comes to body lotions. Apart from keeping my limbs moisturised, a lotion should also dry down to a non-greasy finish. After much trial and error, I’ve finally found one that ticks all the boxes. This almond oil-based lotion keeps dry, flaky skin at bay and doesn’t feel sticky or heavy at all.
Have you tried any of these beauty products out before?
