Chapped? Find relief…

Cold and dry winter weather can leave even the most hydrated beauty queen feeling a little chapped.  Here are my two favorite products for keeping skin and lips smooth, silky, and protected from the elements!

Aveda Hand Relief $20

Not the cheapest hand cream out there but in my opinion, the BEST by far.  The tube really does last awhile and you only need a dime sized dollop of this thick and creamy goodness.  It smothers on and literally coats your hand with rich moisture.  It’s like pulling on a pair of silky smooth gloves over your dry chapped hands. AH-MAY-ZING! Plus it smells heavenly and fresh…

Aveda’s product description: “Incredibly rich moisture therapy soothes dry, chapped hands—leaving them noticeably softer and smoother. Hydrating plant emollients, humectants, exfoliating fruit acids and anti-oxidants—including vitamins A and E—help diminish signs of aging and provide optimal relief. Increases moisture levels and elasticity in skin with continued use.”


Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm $3

My lips give the most trouble during the winter months.  Burt’s Bees lip balm, a favorite of everyone-everywhere, is my solid go to for ridding my dry pealy lips (which is never a good look). I love both their regular lip balm and tinted lip balm.  The tinted balm is the perfect combo of moisturizing lip protection and color. AND the added peppermint oil is the most refreshing way to jazz up your lips!

Burt’s Product Description: Give your lips the soothing feeling they deserve. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. We’ve even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle.


If you’re using these products and still feeling dry, remember to drink water throughout the day.  You’d be surprised at how much a few extra glasses of water in your diet will keep your skin, hair, and nails more moisturized.  Now…go forth and be moisturized!

    Yes – the Aveda lotion is worth the price. And I like the Burt’s Bees with Pomegranate oil. Perfect moisture, ever so slight color, and no taste – lovely . . .
