Winter Skincare Tips Featuring Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection

Winter Skincare Tips
The evenings in New York City are already getting colder and it’s only fall.  Winter is right around the corner, and the colder, dryer weather can lead to dry, itchy skin.   These tips, along with the use of CVS/pharmacy’s #1 best-selling fragrance and body care line, Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection will help keep your skin soft, smooth, and moisturized this winter.

1. Take Shorter Showers in Lukewarm Water

I love taking hot showers in when it’s cold; however, lingering in a hot shower (or bath) can lead to dry skin.  Therefore, limit your time in the shower, and/or lower the temperature.

I love using Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection Lemon Verbena with Olive Oil Bar Soap ($4.99).  It’s non-drying, moisturizing, rinses clean and leaves a soft citrus scent.

2. Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin at least once per week helps slough off dead skin cells, which allow moisture to seep back into the skin.

The Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection Lemon Verbena with Olive Oil Sugar Scrub ($9.99) does a good job at exfoliating without being too rough, which leaves my skin super soft, and the oils in the scrub leave my skin supple and moisturized.

3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

During the winter keeping your skin moisturized truly is the key to having healthy, soft, smooth skin.  After your shower or bath, remember to apply some form of moisturizer.  I love using body butters during the colder months because of their thickness, and ability to keep the skin soft and supple without the oiliness that some lotions and creams leave.  Lately, I’ve been using the Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection Lemon Verbena with Olive Oil Body Butter ($9.99).  It goes on smooth, absorbs quickly, and leaves the skin moisturized without being greasy.

I also carry the Essence of Beauty Naturally Indulgent Bath and Body Collection Lemon Verbena with Olive Oil Hand Cream ($5.99) in my purse to keep my hands from drying out during the day.

One Direction Where We Are Tour Concert Ticket & Makeup by One Direction Giveaway

One Direction Where We Are Tour Ticket Giveaway
 

My tweenage nieces are in-love with One Direction.  In fact, they’re headed to their Where We Are Tour concert at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on August 4th.  One Direction has just finished the European leg of their Where We Are Tour, and are making their way to the US  in just a few days.  Wow, did August come quickly!

Apparently, the One Direction Where We Are Tour 2014 is supposed to be their “biggest yet.”  Wouldn’t you, or your teenage son/daughter would love to win free tickets to see One Direction in concert on August 8, 2014 at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass?  Imagine, if you won how cool of a parent you will be. Your kids will love you for days.  You’ll go down in history as the best, and coolest parent of all time.

To top if off,  One Direction debuts a limited-edition cosmetics collection by Markwins International – the name behind brands like Wet n Wild and Physician’s Formula – launching mid-August 2014 at Macy’s and select other major retailers worldwide.

Much like the One Direction band members themselves, this prestige makeup line is fun, bold and a tad mischievous, featuring vivid shades, premium formulas and chic, collectible packaging and components. The winner of the tickets will also take home two of the One Direction Makeup tins.  Awesome!
