WINTER BEAUTY FAVORITES

March 13, 2017

I know spring is just around the corner, but I just came back from NYC yesterday where it was just snowing, and am currently in the dry climates of LA, so I thought I would share some of my favorite beauty + skincare favorites for dry or cold times of the year.
I personally have very dry skin no matter what time of the year it is, but the bizarre thing is that I was born and raised in Miami where it’s extremely humid, and most people do not struggle with dry skin. When I started spending a lot of my time in LA, which has an extremely dry climate, my skin didn’t know what to do and started freaking out. It needed even MORE moisture. What all of these products have in common is their extremely moisturizing ingredients.

Patchology Eye Gels

THESE! I don’t know how I lived without them. I’m not being dramatic (maybe a little). After long nights or tiring weeks, you can really tell under my eyes. These gels are the best things since the chilled cucumbers, except they actually moisturize and stay put under your eyes. I usually use them right before an event or photoshoot, or if I have an early morning meeting and my eyes are puffy.

Patchology Lip Gels

Speaking of the brand Patchology, they also sent me these lip gels to try and I have fallen in love with them. My lips get SO dry in SoCal and on hot days in Miami, and sometimes chapstick just doesn’t do the trick. These are like little masks for your lips! They are packed with moisture and make your lips feel soft, smooth and most importantly, ready for kisses.
