How to Remain Gorgeous In Winter: Beauty

For a lot of people winter weather is not a friend to your body. What with all the sharp, dry and icy winds, freezing spontaneous showers and rock-bottom temperatures it is no wonder that people tend to be a lot more susceptible to less-than-stellar appearances. And with the holidays coming up and finals drawing ever closer, we are a lot less willing to care about our looks or make the effort. So here are a few tips to help you weather the harsh winter weather:

  1. Hydrate yourself: I don't know about you but facing the blustery winter winds always leaves me feeling super dehydrated. This is why it is more important than usual, to drink your minimum of eight cups a day. It will really show on the inside and out.

  2. Moisturize your hair and body: If you can, using a thicker, more petroleum-based moisturiser (like Vaseline) not only keeps your skin looking healthy but also protects you from the cold.

  3. Use jelly-based lip balm: The lighter, oilier ones just don't cut it in the winter. They evaporate too quickly and soon leave your lips looking cracked and wind worn.

  4. Use cream-based or mineral make-up: Since your face is the part of your body that is constantly exposed to all the various elements, the skin there is weaker and more susceptible to damage. Since it suffers more abuse in the winter it is best to use less chemicals on it during these months.

  5. Use waterproof mascara: If you, like me, tend to have teary eyes when its really cold and windy, but still want to glam up your eyes, using waterproof mascara is probably the way to go. The racoon look is not good on anyone. Trust me.

Love you all and Stay inspired,
