Many of you on the East Coast are experiencing the first snowfall of the year. Believe it or not- it was 90 degrees here in LA yesterday, but the evenings are getting chilly and I have started to overall my bath & shower routine to prepare for the winter in Texas. It dropped to the 30’s there yesterday so I know my skin will have to adapt! Our skin, perspiration and oil production changes as the season’s change so it’s important to change your body wash, shampoo/conditioner and lotions. You know I am a Drugstore Diva and love finding great healthy products at the corner CVS, grocery store or Target.
Here’s my faves for giving your shower a winter SOS rescue:
//ALBA NATURAL VERY EMOLLIENT BATH & SHOWER GEL//
This bath gel blends aloe vera, botanical extracts and fragrant herbs to gently cleanse, nourish and moisturize for healthy-looking skin. Hypo-allergenic and pH balanced.
//ST.IVES Purifying Sea Salt Body Wash//
Renew your skin’s surface to reveal healthier looking skin with the 100% natural exfoliants. Brighten dull skin while also hydrating. Containing mineral salt and Pacific sea kelp, which are known to supply skin with vitamins and anti-oxidants, the purifying formula invigorates tired, sluggish skin.
//EO Blue Chamomile & Lavendar Bubble Bath//
I am a diehard bath lover and enjoy creating a spa-like environment with great smelling bubbles. Many are too harsh and filled with alcohol and skin-drying ingredients. Do you ever get out of the bath and your skin feels tight and itchy? It’s probably your bubble bath. I love this one by EO with Glycerin, Rice Proteins, Allantoin, and Panthenol which moisturize, hydrate and nurture the skin. Naturally derived plant Panthenol (Vitamin B) restores moisture.
//SHEA MOISTURE Organice Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo + Restorative Conditioner//
An extra-moisturizing conditioner that de-tangles and repairs dry, damaged, or over-processed hair. With sea kelp, argan oil and raw, organic shea butter. Heal, grow and strengthen your hair!
//ALBA Natural Very Emollient Foam Shave in Aloe Mint//
Enriched with aloe vera, calendula, chamomile and vitamin E, this highly lubricating foam helps fight off dryness and chaffing.
//TRADER JOE’S Coconut Body Butter//
Before you get out of the shower, when your skin is still damp, apply a healthy oil based butter or straight coconut oil before your body lotion or use alone. I like to layer in the winter! This body butter contains Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E.
//SHEA MOISTURE Olive & Green Tea Body Lotion//
Olive Oil exhibits a high content of healing Vitamin E and fatty acids which help to hydrate, repair and heal skin. Green Tea contains powerful antioxidants that protect skin from free radical damage. Avocado is rich in Vitamins A, D and E, Lecithin and Potassium which help nourish skin.
