Cold-Weather Cures

Brrr! You don’t need Al Roker to tell you that it’s COLD outside in most states right now. (Californians, you are all lucky ducks!) In our February issue, we featured treatments to heal your toughest winter woes. Here are a couple of my favorite snow-day tips for looking radiant even when you’re freezing:

  • If the skin on your body is parched, try this trick: Once you get in the shower, massage a cream-based cleanser over your skin when it’s dry, not wet. This step prevents the cream from getting too diluted, so that it’s more effective and hydrating. Rinse after about 15-20 seconds.
  • To stop your makeup from caking, soften any cream-based concealers or foundations between your index fingertip and thumb before applying. The heat you generate will help it go on evenly. (Chilly temps can harden creamy makeup products.)
  • No tropical vacay in site? After applying a peach cream blush to your cheeks, pat a little above each eyebrow’s arch, then blend. This will give your face a little sunkissed glow and warmth.
