Winter doldrums are upon us when cold (and dreary) weather and indoor heating dry out our hands, lips, and eye areas. This problem is only exacerbated by the need to wear a mask and constantly sanitize our hands. With this mind, I have put together suggestions for helping your hands, lips, and eyes.
We want our hands to be soft and smooth for holdings hands during Valentine season (and for holding babies too!).
I recommend the Mangosteen Replenishing Hand Cream or the Vanilla Mint Hand Cream from Éminence. Both are extremely popular and effective for treating hands that are excessively dry due to seasonal conditions and constant washing and sanitizing.
Jane Iredale also offers a wonderful option with a built-in SPF protectant—HandDrink.
Laboratoire Dr Renaud has a great option that I find particularly good for night repair—Douceur Extrême Treatment Hand Cream.
When we are out in public and wearing our masks, our eyes are the only feature on our faces that others see. The eye area is also often the first place we begin to see visible signs of aging.
Éminence offers some award-winning eye products that have made their way into my personal regime. Snow Mushroom Moisture Cloud, Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream, and Wild Plum Eye Cream hydrate, tighten, and revitalize the eye area.
To take it up another notch, the Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream delivers long-lasting ultra-hydration while minimizing the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. One of our favourites at Elements is the Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum which fights the visible signs of aging including reducing the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines.
You might not know this, but we begin to lose collagen in our lips at age 16! Lips are also where the signs of dehydration are evident and I advocate taking the same approach as we do with our skin—exfoliate and hydrate.
Éminence offers an effective Lip Trio that exfoliates, masques, and protects. I also love the Rosehip & Lemongrass SPF 15 Lip Balm to protect and moisturize your lips throughout the day. The Citrus Lip Balm is a petroleum-free citrus treat with shea butter and sunflower seed oil to provide maximum hydration and a sexy sheen.
