Friday Five: Winter Skincare Favorites

First things first... I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!  Each & every one of you who has taken the time to support my blog in some way is a friend of mine~  & I wish you all a happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year.

Please don't hesitate to send any blog post requests my way, especially as we approach the "fresh start" season, when so many of us embark on Whole30 and healthy eating challenges.  If there are any types of recipes or tip posts you think would help you out on your journey, I would love to help!

For today's post, I thought I would share a "Friday Five" for those of you who share in the struggle of dry/dehydrated skin in the winter.  I have super sensitive skin in general~ but dryness just makes everything much worse.

These products have been life-savers for making my skin look & feel more hydrated when I'm most desperate:

The Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil is my favorite way to boost my moisturizers.  I add 2-3 drops to my daytime moisturizer when I'm feeling extra dry, and sometimes pat it into my skin on its own overnight.  It's a great multi-use product that can be used on everything from your hair to your elbows.

The Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer is my all-time favorite way to hydrate my skin after washing in the morning.  It's super emollient, and works perfectly under makeup.  

As far as lips go, the Dior Créme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm is hands down my favorite.  It has a light rose scent that I love~ and stays on your lips all night while you sleep.  

My most-loved serum is the Peter Thomas Roth VIZ-1000 75% Hyaluronic Acid Complex.  Phew! Longest name ever.  Basically, its a super lightweight gel that you apply just after washing your skin, before any moisturizers or makeup.  It feels like nothing on the skin; but I swear it instantly quenches any dry patches & makes them disappear.  It slowly hydrates my skin throughout the day or night & is seriously amazing.  (Amazing deal on this stuff on the Amazon.com link by the way!)

Last but not least, I've got to mention the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.  This is a great multi-purpose product that can be used as a hand cream or applied to dry patches anywhere on your body.  I even use it on my face if I have a stubborn dry spot or a healing blemish.  It's good stuff!

I hope you give some of these a shot!  Leave some product recommendations for me below if you're a fellow dry skin friend  :)

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
