The transition from October to November brings along a transition in many aspects of our life as well. With the cold winds blowing, the sun transcends from a monstrous heat to welcoming warmth. Backless, strapless and short dresses give way to coats, scarves etc. Your skin too starts feeling more dry and sensitive and demands increased attention and care of you. Consequently, the must carry essentials in your bag also undergoes a change. Check the list below so that you do not miss any:-
Protective Lip Balm
Chapped and dry lips are sure to follow despite intensive care. They need to be hydrated every few hours to remain soft and supple. A deeply moisturizing roll-on lip balm, preferably of shea butter with SPF should be applied frequently to avoid them getting dry and cracked.
A SPF Rich Moisturizer
Travelling out of the house is bound to get your skin dry, dull and patchy. The welcoming warmth of the sun makes us forget about using glasses or umbrella. Rough elbows and knees with dry hands is natural. Carrying big bottles can be quite cumbersome. However, carrying a SPF rich small sample sized moisturizers are ideal to carry and use liberally when required. The correct composition can be used safely on the face as well and allow you to bask in the sun with no adverse effects.
To combat the inevitable dry skin, nothing works better than a thick, creamy specialized hand creams. Better than a regular body lotion, they not only smell amazing but are incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for nails, cuticles, elbows and any exposed part of the skin. Always pick the small ones to easily accommodate in your handbag!
Winter implies people coughing and sneezing into their hands and then opening doors or touching keyboards , door and tap handles etc with the same hands. Regular washing of hands could leave your hands drier. Frequent use of a hand sanitizer is the ideal way out. Remain healthy and nourished with no stress on skin with a sanitizer available at your whim!
During winter, one never knows when one may encounter a running nose. Aren’t these cute lightweight pieces just wonderful at that time! Moreover, they are a fantastic friend in makeup touch-ups or drying those wind-induced watery eyes. Favorable point is that they are very easy to stock up in the bag, taking minimal space.
The cold weather makes your hair go dry, dull and lifeless. A few drops of serum rubbed into them would not only lock the moisture in but also protect it from any splits or breakage.
An assortment of scarves in your wardrobe is never a bad idea. Keeping a matching scarf in your bag and using it when required during travelling protects your skin from both the dry air as well as pollutants.
A little thought in keeping some essentials in a small makeup bag to easily throw in your handbag can combat any potential winter skin and hair problems. Winter, no longer needs to be an obstruction to a radiant, glowing you!
