Saving Winter Skin

Today we had snow flurries here! Which brings me to Winter. This will be my first real winter since living in Cali and I’m kind of scared to be honest… ❄️ So here’s my game plan for getting through the winter:


Skin Care:

My skin tends to be dry plus I pick at my skin (so gross) so to keep it moisturized is especially important for me or it goes very very badly. Here is what I’m going to rely on to get me through the winter.

1. Bite lip mask… this is amazing stuff. Slather it on before bed and your lips are good.

2. Shower Cream Gel– I’m treating myself to some indulgent shower gels. Whatever it takes!

3. This Trader Joe’s argon oil is my Holy Grail. I slather the stuff on everywhere.

4. Trader Joe’s hand cream I use this relentlessly as well.

The winter is a good time to mix it up with your skin care and do some more aggressive treatments since you’re not going to be in the sun as much. I think I’m going to treat myself to microneedling for the first time 😵

I’m also going to try to do all the masks, all the time… Including feet and hands.



This year I asked for this light box for Christmas. I am hoping to not hibernate all winter like I used to. Seasonal depression is definitely real!

I’m also using this diffuser to try to keep some moisture in the air.


We always go somewhere warm every February. This year it’s really not in the budget so we’re going to use some airline miles to visit friends in Florida. I’m sure we will be so ready for it by then!

Also, I’m gonna keep waking up even though it’s dark and cold twice a week and going to work out with a personal trainer. It makes a huge difference in my day.

Anyone else got some tips on surviving the cold? I sound like such a baby and the truth is I am one!
