The crispness in the air, the cozy sweaters, relaxed nights reading in front of a fire…file those under things I like about winter. With all the things I enjoy about the winter time there are of course things about this season that just don’t go over well. My skin cries out during the winter time, dear winter why do you make me so dry. This time of year is harsh and the struggle to keep my skin comfortable and hydrated is oh so real.
Being a skincare fanatic, I should know that cranking up the heat only makes things worse, the reduced humidity for central heating dries out the skin. When my skin is dry it also tends to get irritated, you know itchy and tight, and just uncomfortable feeling. When it comes to winter skin care I’m often tempted to reach for something thick and heavy because that means more moisture, right? This way of thinking about moisturizers is actually all wrong, I learned this the hard way after using a super heavy cream that caused a bad breakout. A thicker cream doesn’t always automatically equate to a better moisturizer.
This past year was a super busy one for me, but I try to make a little time each week to relax on the couch and watch some good TV. FX brought us some great shows in 2016, and I’m looking forward to what’s coming next year.
I’m a huge history fan and have yet to meet a dark and scandalous storyline I didn’t like. With the new FX series Taboo, a tantalizing story of conspiracy, family drama, love, and murder unfolds.
Launching this month at Target stores is the Sonia Kashuk Spring Line, aptly themed around self-love.
More and more people are now celebrating female empowerment and self-acceptance let’s cheer for that! The time has come for us to adjust not only how we talk to and about others but also to be mindful of the thoughts we have about ourselves. Words have power, and negative ones can hurt just as much as positive ones can empower.
Beauty is should be subjective. There shouldn’t only be one standard definition. How can there be? Beauty looks and feels different to everyone because we are all cut from a different cloth. Instead of us all trying to fit into a narrow box of the same, we should celebrate and promote the beauty in individuality.
