With snow on the ground and a chill in the air, ‘tis the season to hydrate, prioritize comfort and take care of ourselves—in style of course. Here are some of our winter must haves, getting us through.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. This set from Sahara Rose includes the brand’s Radiance Mist—use it as a toner for an instant pick-me-up—which features hyaluronic acid to instantly plump and aloe vera to hydrate, chamomile and calendula to soothe and ruby crystals to help brighten. The set also features their Divine Beauty Serum, which fuses skin-soothing oils and superfood plant extracts plus mood-enhancing notes of lavender, bergamot, rosemary and geranium.
From hand sanitizer to skin care and pharmaceutical needs, C.O. Bigelow is a one-stop shop (they also offer free deliver in New York City). The iconic apothecary also makes a swoon-worthy West Village Rose Hand Care set that features a blend of floral and woodsy notes in this that leaves hands soft, smooth and smelling amazing after every use.
In an age of “tech neck” and increased use of our devices, now is no time to neglect your neck. Defenage recently introduced their new neck cream designed to address deep lines, smooth skin and invoke tightening effects.
Between spouts of maskne and dealing with dry, dull skin, this mask has been a lifesaver. Posing as a mask, peel and polish in one, this at-home resurfacing facial features eight natural acids, and is packed with antioxidants to reveal brighter, smoother skin in five minutes.
This magical nongreasy and surprisingly lightweight hair oil features saffron (a spice worth more than its weight in gold), pistachio and rose to literally do it all. It seals ends, serves as a heat-protectant, combats frizz, adds shine and nourishes strands. I like to rub a few drops in between my hands and apply mid-shaft to ends.
In case you missed the memo, daily SPF is a must. And if that fear of white cast or feeling dry is what’s holding you back, look no further then this hydrating broad-spectrum SPF 45+ formula. The brands best-seller features high-performing and quick-absorbing ingredients to moisturize while it protects. Plus, it smells like relaxing cucumber.
Oversized Sunglasses from Sunglass Hut
Speaking of sun protection… From vintage inspired shades from Prada, to a double bridge from Ray-Ban, Sunglass Hut offers a wide variety of frames in different colors, price points and brands. While we hope for brighter days ahead, sunnies are the easiest ways to protect against glare while driving, and protect your eyes and surrounding area from sun damage while battling harsh rays from the sun.
Sperry PLUSHWAVE Nylon Boot ($130)
For any one hanging up their heels and looking for an ultra-warm and infinitely chic winter boot, Sperry’s PLUSHWAVE collection features a quilted nylon, leather, and cozy faux fur lining to keep toes warm and dry all winter long.
Joggers are still all the rage as this comfortable indoor-outdoor choice uses a lightweight warm, cotton-fleece fabric. Perfect for staying in, running errands and taking hikes alike, splurging in quality athleisure has proved a worthwhile investment. Plus, I don’t know about you, but I’m still in the phase of only getting dressed from the waste up for those daily zooms.
