With cold weather comes chapped lips and dry skin. Gross. Here are some winter skincare essentials to keep you looking as awesome on the outside as you are on the inside!

EOS Lip Balm ($3.50)

This sphere shaped lip balm can be found in any drugstore or Walmart and Target. EOS, standing for “Evolution of Smooth,” is the best new product in the world of lip balm.

As 95 per cent organic and 100 per cent natural, this balm keeps your lips smooth and soft without a waxy feel. EOS lip balm comes in a variety of scents/flavours: Blueberry Acai, Pomegranate Raspberry, Sweet Mint, Strawberry Sorbet, Summer Fruit and my personal favourite, Honeysuckle Honeydew.

L’Occitane Hand Cream ($12)

Available at Sephora or L’Occitane stores themselves, L’Occitane hand cream is a must have for this winter season. This super potent and creamy moisturizer quickly penetrates the skin to protect and replenish dry hands. L’Occitane has a special formula of shea butter, honey, almond milk, grape seed oil and coconut oil for lasting soft skin. This moisturizer will not leave your hands feeling greasy or tight, but will leave a delightful fresh scent. Bonus: it is also small enough to carry around in your bag.

Philosophy Body Lotion ($31)

Philosophy offers a variety of fun scents in their 480-millilitre bottles. Ranging from Gingerbread to Magnolia flowers, you are bound to find one that suits your every mood. The body lotion is moisturizing while leaving a light scent. You will not regret investing in high quality lotion this winter. Philosophy products can be found at Sephora and The Hudson Bay Company.

Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream ($8)

Help your hands out with some extra love. Nourish and moisturize your nails and cuticles with this all-natural cream. Harsh winter weather and flu season often leaves cuticles dry and cracked (the necessary evil of disinfecting gel). The mix of lemon oil and bees wax will leave your fingers looking healthy and beautiful this holiday season.
