The first weapon in your arsenal against the bad weather is the simple lip balm. Available from many different manufacturers, lip balms can help your lips and other areas be healthy during the cold weather.
Of course, you will want to coat your lips liberally to protect them from drying out. But did you also know that if you are in a bind, rubbing an oil based lip balm on cracked or rubbing heels can make your winter boots feel a bit more comfortable?
Due to bad weather, mascara manufacturing companies have been making waterproof products for years. If you don't wear it during the summer season, then Fall - Winter is definitely the time to crack that waterproof wonder out! Remember Panda eyes when you have been crying is a bad look. Panda eyes because you had walk to work in the rain is just unacceptable!
The next tip is to make sure that you are using a quality pressed powder product to set your makeup. Again due to the likelihood of poor weather your makeup will be tested by the elements throughout the day. This means the better it is applied and set, the longer lasting wear you will get out of it. Set each layer with pressed power and then use a setting spray for a bullet proof finish.
A fabulous product to use in the winter is a lip stain. This is a lipstick that doesn't just sit on the top of your lips but sinks into them providing long lasting color. It works very well in the winter because applying and reapplying lipstick can irritate and dry out lips. In addition, you can easily use a nourishing lip balm over the top, without compromising the original color.
If there is one thing that you change about your summer beauty regime going into the colder months, let it be the type of moisture that you use.
We all know the devastating effect of environmental factors like wind, rain and snow can have on our skin. So if wrinkles are not on your wish list, it’s essential that you choose a moisturizer that counters these elements.
Don't forget to continue to choose an SPF formula too, as even when it's not hot; the can still be plenty of UVA rays about. Just think of all those people then get sunburned skiing!
