Beating Winter Skin.

When I think about winter, I think about soft, cozy things. Cashmere. Silk. Velvet. Even flannel. But not dry, scaly skin… that’s for sure. We talked a lot about winter skin last week. It’s the worst. My skin gets red, itchy, and angry. I still remember the first time it happened… it was my first winter away at college.

5 Tips + Tricks for Beautiful Winter Skin.

I don’t know about you all, but right about now is when my skin starts to freak out. Maybe it’s all the travel (airplane travel is another big culprit) but the heat in my building is making my skin so, so dry. Luckily, I’ve been living in New York City (heat-regulated) apartment with dry air for years and years (almost ten!) now so I’ve developed a cold-weather skin routine and gotten pretty good at dry skin prevention…

I am fascinated by the non-traditional ingredients used in so many of these products, the cute packaging, and fun product names.

Boy Brow.

Guys. I am so excited about this afternoon’s post. You know by now (evidence here, here, and here) that I’m just a little bit eyebrow obsessed. I will do anything for thicker, fuller (but still tamed + defined) eyebrows. It’s at the point where I’ve thought about getting my brows permanently tattooed on, but I’m too much of a wimp – I hate needles.
