Sure, it's too early to think about snow, but you may as well get your skin prepared for the onslaught well in advance.
It happens to all of us: As the temperature begins to drop, your skin dries out. Months creep by, until all of a sudden, you look in the mirror and find that you’re bearing a much stronger resemblance to your nephew’s pet boa constrictor than you’d like to admit. But unlike the lucky snake, you can’t just shed your skin to reveal the smooth, supple incarnation of yourself that lies beneath the ragged surface.
Instead? One word: moisturize. Chapstick, hand cream, face cream, the whole shebang – you’ll need it once the weather starts turning ugly. Sure, it’s still too early to think about snow, but you may as well get your skin prepared for the onslaught well in advance.
Desperate times call for desperate measures: If your entire body could use some TLC, try the Head to Toe Starter Kit from Burt’s Bees, which includes sample sizes of all-natural hand cremes, lip balm, body lotion, and much more, made from ingredients like almonds, honey, lemon butter, and coconut, so your bathroom will smell even better than your kitchen. Burt’s Bees also donates 10% of all proceeds to charitable foundations, so you’ll be able to look in the mirror with a clear conscience (and complexion). Available at Amazon.
