Winter is the perfect time to spruce up your beauty routine. Founder and Editor- in-Chief of beautyblitz.com, Polly Blitzer, is here to share her list of the best beauty buys of 2012.
PB: Let’s start at the top with our hair---when the cold weather sets in, hair has a tendency to dry out, especially gray hair which is more porous/coarse to begin with.
So to keep it moisturized and cover those pesky grays, I really like Clairol Professional’s new Liquicolor Permanente gray busters. It creates natural looking, deep conditioned hair and it reflects light, so it actually creates a shimmering, multi-dimensional effect, so cool.
It has a soy4plex that smooths the entire hair shaft inside and out to deliver deep conditioning that you can really feel.
Use it in between salon visits. It’s available at beauty supply stores, like Sally Beauty. Or online at clairolpro.com
Winter can make you and family feel uncomfortable with chapped, cracked skin, rough elbows, cracked feet, windburn on the face and raw, dry hands. There’s a multi-purpose product, Eucerin Aquaphor that prevents and helps heal so many of these winter challenges. It’s a great value because it is gentle enough for babies but effective for your very dry skin. The consistency is an ointment so it feels greasy but it is so helpful for very dry skin. A great idea is to use at night on feet and hands and wake up to smoother skin. I like to refer to it as the duct-tape of dermatology.
I’m also excited about this new anti-acne product made just for teens – it’s called X Out. With winter formal and spring break trips just around the corner, it’s a must-have skin care product for teens. X out is an easy to use, one-step wash-in treatment from the maker’s of Proactiv. It banishes breakouts by washing acne- fighting medicine into the pores to help kill the bacteria that cause pimples, and at the same time moisturizes the skin. But it’s not just a face wash – X Out can also be used as a mask and spot treatment, which I love!
Teens should use it for two minutes, twice a day. To encourage the proper wash time, there’s a code on the bottle so when teens scan it they are automatically directed to the “daily distraction” to watch a cool two minute video while they wash. Each day they can see a new video… pretty cool.
