Remember when it was 60° and sunny last week? Yeah, neither do we. To prepare for this glacial New York day, we wanted to bundle you up with a few tips for your day at home. We’re here to weather the storm with you. ;)
☑ With winter still here, keep using your moisturizer with a richer, heavier, weight to help your skin fight off dehydration (you may usually use this in the evenings, but this weather calls for two-a-days).
☑ We hope you didn’t put away your heavy outerwear just yet! Cover your face with a scarf to add protection against sensitization from the aggressive wind.
☑ Enjoy a quick steamy shower to promote circulation (but not too long – too much steam can actually dry out your skin!).
☑ A diffuser is a must! Essential oils together, like lavender lemon and eucalyptus, can help release antimicrobial chemicals in the air to fight off the germs that leads to a cold.
☑ Do a mask. Never have time for a mask? No excuses with a Nor’easter.
☑ Play your favorite tunes - yes, it really helps! Listening to your favorite music can help calm you down and soothe inflammation.
☑ Don’t forget the feet! A homemade scrub of ground coffee, jojoba oil, and a few drops of ginger will refresh, polish and add heat to tired tissue in need of TLC.
DON'TS (these are true, snow or shine!)
☒ We know the smell of SPF is a painful reminder of warmer days, but don’t leave the house without applying! Even in a metropolitan tundra, it’s a must.
☒ Stay in your lane! Don’t use your friend's products – stick to your trusted go-to’s.
