2018 Winter Essentials

As we work our way through the winter months, I’m always looking for the best products to keep me healthy and protect me from the cold, dry weather! Most of my favorites revolve around the change in skin texture that comes with this cold weather, but I also have a favorite essential oil that is perfect for fighting off sickness!


First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

When the weather starts to change, the first thing to change is my skin! Not only will my face have dry patches, but it will also become extremely oily in my t-zone. The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream has been my favorite moisturizer for years! It keeps my skin under control and completely balances it! It’s perfect for morning and nighttime, and works with any skincare routine!



If you have any stubborn dry patches from the weather, Aquaphor will be your best friend! If I have any dry areas on my face, this is the first thing I reach for it at night. It moisturizes the skin, without irritating it! It puts a protective layer over the skin, which helps to heal the skin overnight. This can also be used for the lips, elbows, and hands!


Nivea Soft Moisturizing Crème

After recently trying the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and loving it, I went looking for some alternatives! I came across the Nivea Soft Moisturizing Crème, which claims to be refreshing and lightweight. It contains vitamin E and jojoba oil – both great moisturizing ingredients! This has a body butter texture, but sinks into the skin so easily! My skin is so soft after using this!


Thieves Essential Oil

As you may know, I am obsessed with Young Living Essential Oils! Thieves is one of the first oils I was introduced to and it has been a staple ever since! Thieves is a combination of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary. This blend is perfect to fight off sickness, which is why I use it daily! During the winter, I diffuse this every night and anytime that we start to feel sick!
