Winter is coming darlings! Shucks, in places like Michigan or New England winter is already here!!! LOL!! Thanksgiving can often mean snow for some of you, but is your skin ready?? Have you ever had a chapped tush during winter?? Or your lips burn so bad from the cold that you keep licking, making them blister? Or wait, have you had patches of dry crusty scaly skin on your legs or face?? Babes, if you’ve got dry winter skin then this is THE blog for you. 

Tips for Dry Winter SkinI used to travel to some freakin brutally cold places. The number one thing I learned to keep your skin hydrated from head to toe is you gotta layer and lock in moisture. Kinda like how you layer on clothes in the winter. You got your base layer, over clothes, sweaters, coats, boots, scarves, hats and gloves – you basically got do the same sh*t to your skin.
