Arm Yourself With A Great Moisturizer Against Winter Dry Skin

The first day of winter begins TOMORROW!

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac....The earliest winter since 1896 arrives with the solstice at 6:12 A.M. on December 21, 2012 (EST).

So, what does that have to do with beauty? Plenty!

The cold, dry air zaps the goodness out of your skin, leaving it dull, parched and looking older than it actually is. For instance, have you ever noticed how darn awful your hands can appear in the middle of winter?! Not only your skin, but the dry, chilly air inside and outside robs moisture from your hair, too, leaving it flat and with static electricity.

Your best defense other than a winter long stay in Aruba:

Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize.
A wonderful and effective moisturizer to try is First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ($28, at Sephora. It's a super-emollient cream. Read what the company says about their Ultra Repair Cream:

"This Ultra Repair Cream is a thick, rich, emollient product that hydrates deep down with exceptional penetration. This cream is for anyone with severely dry, scaly skin due to harsh winter weather, aggressive cosmetic treatments, or any of the following conditions: atopic dermatitis, irritant eczema, allergic eczema, and keratosis pilaris. With the help of colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, soothing eucalyptus oil, and ceramides, Ultra Repair Cream provides immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin. The FAB Antioxidant Booster defends skin from free radical damage and the cream deeply hydrates with exceptional penetration, providing immediate relief and visible improvement. The cream is immediately absorbed into the skin and can be used all over the body and on the face."

Plus, this moisturizer gets a 4.7 out of a 5-star* rating from Sephora customers.

Arm yourself now!
