Winter Skin Savers

Last night, everyone and their dog on my Twitter and Facebook feed were like this:

Yes, it was snowing in Lubbock, Texas.

It's been like 70 degrees lately, so this winter shit has come out of nowhere.

Winter = dull, dry skin


I take pretty good care of my skin except when I come in at 2 AM reeking of Maker's Mark and Jack in the Box tacos and fall asleep with my heels on, especially when it starts to get cold outside.

Because, I mean, who wants a flaky, itchy nasty epidermis? Hell to the no.

Chapstick: Chapstick addiction runs in my family. Papa Murlin-->Chuck-->Me. I always carry a tube in my pocket and I always end up washing my pants and it gets errwhere, but still.

Johnson's Shea & Cocoa Butter Baby Oil: Okay, ladies, shave yo legs with this. Not only does it make your legs super smooth, it makes your razor last longer. You'll be knockin' them out with your American thighs. Heyooo!

Jojoba Oil: My face gets super dry around the nose, so I occasionally mix this with my moisturizer. It doesn't clog your pores and actually fights against overactive sebum production and can help with acne.

Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream: My cuticles look rode hard and put up wet. This cream is a miracle worker for dry hands and cuticles. It has a strong camphor scent at first, but it goes away. Seriously, y'all. I cannot live without this stuff.

Olay CC Cream: This is my latest purchase. It's less coverage than a BB cream or tinted moisturizer, but it hydrates, illuminates, and evens out your skin. Perfect solution for dull skin.

Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial: I'm a huge fan of Korres products, especially the Wild Rose line. I bought this in the summer as a nighttime moisturizer. It's perfection in a jar. A little goes a long way (I've been using it *almost* every night since July). I have also used it in the mornings before applying makeup if my face is on the dry side.

Jergens Hydrating Coconut Milk Body Cream: Smells amaze balls. Leaves skin super silky, especially when applied right after the shower.

Yeah, uh, cool.

Get it? "Cool" like brrrrrr. LOLZ.
