5 Beauty Tips For a Winter Glow
Rose water — Not only does it smell amazing but it makes a great toner due to its anti-inflammatory, redness reducing properties. And when mixed with jojoba oil and some coconut water, makes a great ingredient for a refreshing DIY facial spray.
Jojoba oil — A little goes a long way! Rich in Vitamin E and the healing properties of iodine, I use this winter wonder as a moisturizer for my face & body as well as scalp massages.
Rose hip oil — My AM and PM serum of choice, this rich oil gives dull skin a glow during even the chilliest months. I store mine in the fridge so it's super refreshing when I apply it after cleansing. The list of benefits is long — vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids work together to give winter skin the hydration it craves while reducing fine lines and scars.
Grapefruit extract — I keep a bottle in my purse and at my office when I want a quick "lift" as it's known to boost your mood and ward off cravings.
Coconut oil — Whether it's soothing split ends or sealing in moisture after a shower, I always have it on hand in my bathroom cabinet. Full of antibacterial properties, it's a great option for sensitive skin and can be used almost anywhere (yes, anywhere). Want the smoothest feet ever? Mix 2T of coconut oil with a few drops of your essential oil of choice (lavender and tangerine are lovely choices) and massage into feet then slip on socks and wake up to baby feet!
