The Top 5 Beauty Products We Use to Survive the Cold Weather

Refresh your beauty regimen for the winter.

This time of year our skin inevitably starts to look paler, drier, and less even. Embrace the seasonal changes and reach for products with richer hues, added hydration, and fuller coverage. Instead of going back to last Fall's favorites—which by now are probably expired—refresh your beauty regimen for the winter. Here are 5 go-to products to try.


01./ 02./ 03./ 04./ 05.

Face: Drew Barrymore's line of cosmetics, sold exclusively at Walmart, are not only affordable, but could be compared with (or replace!) some of our pricier favorites. Suitable for most skin types, Flower Beauty About Face foundation evens the complexion with a satin finish that lasts all day. For only $13.50, it's a great option to transition from summer to winter as your skin tone changes.

Body: Shea Moisture Baby Healing Lotion is a luxurious body cream that sinks into skin immediately—leaving skin feeling smooth and soft—and comes with a pump!  This cream contains shea butter to hydrate, chamomile to soothe, and argan oil to soften. Lightly scented with regal frankincense and myrrh, this formula has no artificial fragrance, parabens, mineral oil, dyes, and gluten.

Lips: DeVita absolute LIPS lipstick, featured here in Sanguine Angel, is the perfect lipstick-lip balm hybrid. Packed with emollient macadamia, avocado, and jojoba oils, it feels like wearing balm with the added beauty of a sheer cranberry tint. For those who have struggled with heavy, drying, or sticky lipsticks, this creamy lightweight texture is unbeatable. For a more neutral shade, try Pink Diamonds.

Hair: Static cling is caused by dryness, and in this weather, hats and scarves will be sure to create it if your hair is dry enough. On clean, damp hair, spritz Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Spray onto ends. Not only does it help heal the cracked hair cuticle, but it detangles, protects from UV damange, and adds texture to the ends of the hair so that "just cut" look lasts longer. Did we mention that it smells amazing?

Nails: Shades of red are festive and fun this time of year, and Zoya nail polish in Blair—a cool red shade, shot through with a metallic sheen—is no exception. We tried this polish in an at-home manicure, and the results lasted nearly 10 days! We can also rest easy knowing that this polish is formaldahyde-free.
