It’s the heart of winter, and no where is that more obvious than on our face. Our skin is dry and flaky, our lips are chapped, and our hair is brittle. What’s a girl to do? Here are a few simple beauty tweaks to stay looking gorgeous until spring.
1. Switch out your cleanser
Switching to a cream or oil-based cleanser can prevent your dry skin from any further moisture loss. Try Korres Greek Yoghurt cleanser to soothe irritated skin and reduce redness.

2. Amp up the moisture
It goes without saying that a good moisturizer is key in the winter. Look for a long-lasting formula so you’ll stay hydrated all day.

3. Deep condition
Your hair also needs some love, so make sure to apply a rich mask once a week to keep your mane looking glossy. Bonus points if you wrap your hair in a towel and heat it up with a blow dryer to make sure the conditioner really sinks in.

4. Protect your eyes
The skin around your eyes is extremely fragile, which means its especially susceptible to the harsh winter winds. An eye cream will help protect and treat this delicate area.

5. Don’t forget your lips
Gently scrub lips with a soft toothbrush to exfoliate, then apply a hydrating lip balm to lock in the moisture. This lip mask has clear and tinted versions, which is perfect for those of us who want to skip lipstick, but still want a pretty pout.
