How to Winter-Proof Your Look How to Winter-Proof Your Look How to Winter-Proof Your Look

Oh, the weather outside might be frightful—but your skin and hair can still look delightful this winter. While the colder temps can contribute to your skin and hair looking and feeling drier and duller than they do the rest of the year, you don’t have to sit back and wait until spring to regain a radiant-looking complexion and fresh-feeling strands. From faking golden color with self-tanner to incorporating a charcoal mask into your skin care routine, the following skin care, hair care, and makeup tips can help you winter-proof your beauty look to perfection. Let’s get started!

WINTER BEAUTY TIP #1: FAKE A GOLDEN GLOW WITH SELF-TANNER

You know how you always look so refreshed when you come back from a day at the beach? Well, you can fake that sun-kissed glow by using self-tanner. Want everyone to ask where you just went on vacation? No one has to know that you’ve been cooped up inside as the snow falls. Consider yourself a self-tanner beginner? Try the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Milky Lotion, which is a gradual tanning lotion.

WINTER BEAUTY TIP #2: ADD A CHARCOAL MASK TO YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE

Skin looking a little lackluster these days? Well, over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage your skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. So, try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, formulated with three different clays (kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava) and charcoal, to draw out the buildup of impurities, like dirt and pollution. This face mask addresses the look of dull skin, revealing a purified, even, and radiant-looking complexion. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin. Leave the face mask on for 10-15 minutes, then remove it with water. For best results, use it three times a week. That’s right, you have an excuse to pamper yourself with a face mask three times a week—every week—this winter.

WINTER BEAUTY TIP #3: GET FRIENDLY WITH HIGHLIGHTER

Sometimes, it’s all about faking a glow until you make it. That’s where the right makeup—highlighter, specifically—comes in. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops, which are available in two shades: Golden Hour and Daybreak. Here’s a hack, just for you: Mix a couple of the illuminating drops into your foundation to use it as an all-over highlighter. Apply the foundation-highlighter combo with a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, using dabbing and rolling motions to blend it onto your skin. Of course, if you want to highlight specific areas of your face, that’s an option too! Dot the highlighter around your eyes, down the bridge of your nose, and on your cupid’s bow—all the places the sun would naturally hit—then blend out with your makeup blender.

WINTER BEAUTY TIP #4: FINISH OFF YOUR LOOK WITH A LUMINIZING POWDER

Are you more of a powder makeup fan? After applying your foundation, use a fluffy makeup brush to lightly dust your face with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder, focusing on the high points of your face. Your favorite snow globe has got nothing on you!

WINTER BEAUTY TIP #5: MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR MOISTURIZER

There’s nothing skin needs more of during the wintertime than moisture. Between the dry climate and the cold weather, skin can become dehydrated if not cared for properly. After washing your face, be sure to immediately apply a moisturizer formulated for your skin type. Applying moisturizer to damp skin can help lock in hydration. Have your pick from the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care – Normal/Dry Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care – Normal/Oily Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care – Extra Dry Skin. Don’t forget the skin below your chin! After patting dry post-shower, slather on your favorite body lotion or butter.

WINTER BEAUTY TIP #6: USE A SUGAR SCRUB ON YOUR FACE AND LIPS

Exfoliating only becomes more important as the winter months progress, as dead skin cell buildup can leave your skin looking dull. For all your lip and face scrub needs, try the L’Oréal Paris Pure Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub, which can be used on your face and lips. Just massage over your face and lips, then rinse thoroughly three times a week.
