My Go-To Winter Weather Remedies

It's no secret....the basic white girl in me has been anxiously waiting for cooler weather to make its appearance in Oklahoma for months and months. I mean....I had a closet full of new sweaters, scarves, boots and beanies to break out!

While the Peppermint Mochas, fuzzy socks and Christmas music fill me with joy, the dry skin/lips, scratchy nose and staticky hair do not. But have no fear, my go-to remedies are here! 

Dry Skin
  • Matte lipstick is all the rage right now and I love it. My lips, however, do not. So, I like to use a lip stain and top it (after it dries, of course) with a little lip balm. It helps my color to not crack throughout the day while keeping my lips hydrated and smooth. Try evolution of smooth and your lips will thank you! I keep an "egg" in my purse, my desk drawer, my bathroom and next to my bed! It has just the right amount of moisture and shine without being too thick or sticky. It doesn't hurt that their products are gluten and paraben free and not tested on animals! 
  • I never go anywhere without my eos hand lotion. My hands crack really bad in the winter, especially if I'm outside in the cold wind, so having lotion readily available is a must! eos's formula is fast absorbing and non-greasy - a major requirement for me.....and for my hubby who uses it more than I do, ha! Plus it's in a cute shaped bottle that fits in most purses, big or small. 
Scratchy Nose
  • I recently had a facial where my esthetician used a humidifier and OMG you guys, it made all my dryness go away! I could literally feel my skin and sinuses loosen up and fill with moisture. It was amazing! You can get the same effect at home with a humidifier of your own, or put a hot steamy towel over your face for a few minutes. Also, turn the heat down at helps!
  • Drink water! This seems to be the go-to cure for everything from weight loss to recovering from the flu......but, if your body is dehydrated, it can't provide any excess water to hydrate your nose! 
Staticky Hair
  • Use a anti-frizz treatment. My favorite (I'm more or less obsessed) is Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine Spray. It not only smells incredible, but it softens and smooths crazy, staticky hair better than anything I've tried. I spray it on after styling and it makes my hair so silky. 
  • Rub a dryer sheet on your hair! It also works to rub it on your body if you're wearing a particularly sticky outfit. It might seem weird to carry one with you, but it comes in handy and sure makes your purse smell good in the mean time.
Do you have any winter weather remedies to share? If so, I'd love to hear!
