Winter Skin Favorites

*I'm taking a 7 a.m. final today so I have the always gorgeous Maya guest posting for me today. She is a constant source of inspiration, humor and makes me feel like a million bucks with her Instagram cat-calls.*  Enjoy! 

I'm excited to be taking a break from my corner of the internet at Charmingly Styled to guest post for Alissa while she's studying up a storm during finals week! I've always been a big fan of The Adored Life {as I'm sure you all are too!}, so it's great to be stopping by and sharing a few of my favorite cold weather skin cures. 

Even after living in the Midwest for my whole life, I'm still in shock this time of year when I realize just how cold it really is {it's really quite the rude awakening}. Between the sub zero temperatures and the brutal Chicago wind, these 5 products give me just enough moisture to kick the winter to the curb...or, as far to the curb as possible :)

rosebud salve - say hello to happy lips all winter long! Besides saving my lips from the ultimate chapped weather, rosebud salve has the prettiest tint - perfect for everyday or date night adventures. 

one love organics skin savior - I'm boarder line obsessed with OLO, and there skin savior is my ultimate go - to. The salve smells amazing and works as both a make-up remover and moisturizer {products that do double duty are doubly nice!}. 

lush skin drink - the ultimate moisturizing pot of goodness, I'm a huge fan of lush's mission and their all natural products. This concoction saves my skin from some seriously sad winter weather. 

kiehls 24 hour moisture lotion - yep, 24 hours is a good good thing when it comes to hydrating your skin. We all already knew Kiehls was the best, but here's even more proof!

s.w. basics shea cream - my sweet amiga Alyssa sent a few s.w. basics products my way this fall, and I've become a convert to their amazing products. 3 ingredients, all natural, and so so good! This shea cream is the last shea cream you'll ever need - plus, it's so big it'll last forever!

Thanks for letting my stop by and play Alissa! Good luck on your finals, you'll kill 'em per usual :)

xx, Maya
