Now that visiting with family, fighting long lines and all that overeating is over, it's time to treat yourself and your skin to a little TLC. TODAY style editor and author Bobbie Thomas is here to share a few finds that will help you combat the dry winter air.
The blistery cold can wreak havoc on your hands, especially during flu season when you are (or should be) constantly washing them. Fortunately, Hand Therape can help. The multi-tasking formula moisturizes and protects skin while killing germs and boasting anti-aging properties. Not only does it cut down on the clutter in your handbag, but the quadruple threat contains Retinol A to help give your skin a more youthful texture. It also has natural shea butter to prevent dryness and cracking, keeping your hands soft and smooth ($14.99, theindustrysource.com).
New from Peter Thomas Roth, Oilless Oil is a new moisturizer that claims to have all the hydrating benefits of oil without the greasy after feel. Naturally derived and odorless, the serum is intended to let skin breath while helping improve tone and reduce the look of wrinkles. Best of all, it's non-comedogenic so it won't clog your pores ($38, peterthomasroth.com).
Dual Phase Body Oil from Salma Hayek's popular Nuance line is another hydrating oil made from jojoba, coconut, and passion fruit. It offers an intense boost of skin nourishment. The lightweight formula also absorbs quickly leaving little to no residue ($12.99, CVS.com).
It's not just your skin that suffers during the harsh winter months. Your hair can take a bit of a beating as well. With this in mind, celebrity dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross has set his sights on your strands with his first ever hair care collection and ‘Root Resilience’ kit. Focused on treating the scalp, the anti-aging product line can help nourish and renew your tresses ($48 for the kit, dgskincare.com).
Last but not least, this month Kérastase is launching their first on-the-go dry-end nourishment, Nutritive Renovation. It enhances manageability and keeps your ends under control anytime, anywhere ($35, Kerastase-usa.com).
