Winter may feel like the perfect time to hibernate, but sleep on skincare all winter and you’ll be disappointed when the weather turns to spring. Invest in restorative, relaxing balms, reinvigorating and comfortable scents, and keep family off your case at holiday gatherings with an effortless glow.
Restore skin’s moisture and rebuild defensive barriers against harsh, dry winter air with this updated version of Drunk Elephant’s 2016 Allure award winning moisturizer. Rich without leaving a greasy residue, Lala Retro Whipped moisturizer is like a creamy dessert for your skin; indulgent and comfortable to sink into after a tough day battling the elements. With antioxidant ceramides, it smooths and restores uneven facial texture without clogging pores, but is effective enough to apply to problem dry areas like knees and elbows.
Bright citrus and florals have their place, but winter demands a comforting scent. Tobacco Vanille, by Tom Ford, fits the bill. The scent brings to mind an English club; tobacco flower is a decadent feature with a heavy presence, like well-worn leather boots and a wool scarf, before cocoa and tonka bean round and soften the edges. A truly unisex scent, it’s perfect for spending a day indoors curled up in an oversized leather recliner, reading a favorite book by a fireplace, and avoiding the harsh weather.
